Traditional Candle Wedding Favors


For that streamline, classic look, a votive in ivory and white is the best option. But there are several ways to incorporate elegance and style using these classic wedding hues.

A great alternative to the traditional white votive is a gel candle in a wine glass candleholder. This grape-scented candle reminiscent of a well aged merlot is sure to compliment almost every wedding theme with style. Of course, the rich red wine shade may be too much of a contrast for some wedding color schemes. If this is the case, James Bonds drink of choice might work a tad better. With the decorative olive resting at the bottom of this martini candle, your guests will not know whether to find a lighter or a swizzle stick.


Delicious Candle Wedding Favors


If your reception theme revolves around that decadent creation being whipped up at the bakery, your guests will adore a butter cream cake candle sitting atop a classic white ceramic pedestal. Decorated with pink polka dots and green ribbons, this candle favors color scheme is simple enough to compliment even the most vivacious wedding theme.


Your guests are also sure to enjoy a sweet smelling ice blue three-tiered cake candle.

Coffee is one of the most universally recognized and enjoyed scents. Even guests who are not devout coffee drinkers will love its rich aroma for months after your wedding. Packaged in a lovely espresso cup with a chrome handle, this is a wedding favor your guests will keep and use long after the candle is gone. Consider sprinkling a few chocolate covered espresso beans around the gift for that extra special touch.


Wedding guests will also enjoy fragrant flower scented candle favors. Look for bright colors that compliment your wedding color schemes, and package the candles with small sachets of potpourri and flower petals.

Many newlyweds dart off to a tropical paradise honeymoon after the wedding festivities come to an end.

With their sandy turrets and waving flag, these candleholders are a tasteful addition to every knickknack shelf, with or without the tea light.



To give your wedding guests a real taste of the beach, make candleholders out of small globes with sand and real seashells. These creative wedding favors are reminiscent of beach bonfires, and make great decorative mementos.
