sea-side favors

What would you like your guests to take home with them to remind them of the wonderful celebration they have been apart of? Beach weddings have the option to be fun and quirky, so choose your party favours to be a sweet reminder of an amazing evening.

sea-side favours

If you're special day is taking place in a typical sea-side town, keep an eye out for any markets in the area. A simple local handmade shell anklet is a sweet little favour for ladies to take home with them. Or maybe a little pots of organic local honey or preserves? Market holders are often happy to help out with enough notice, and they will be grateful for the support you are giving their local community. 

Hawaiian lays are a nice way to greet guests at ceremony or reception. They're also super easy to find and cheap! You can choose them to match your colour combinations and place settings for the evening.

For a favour you can be sure they'll use after the big night, there are some cute bottle openers available in the shape of thongs. Your friends and family will think about your happy day every time they cheers! 

Want a sun-smart ceremony by the bay? Keep an eye out for little personalised sunscreen keychains! Guests will be grateful when they wake up the next day sans flaming red noses and shoulders. 

If you want to stick to the traditional sweet-tooth party favours of tasty sugared almonds, present them on your guest's place setting in little treasure chest boxes. Alternatively you could use cork topped bottles with personalised messages inside. Or look online or in tribal stores for cute coloured woven bamboo boxes for that tropical island feel.

To give your guests a little bit of fun with their photos of the night, place little beach themed costume pieces on each table. An eye patch, a sailors hat, mini pirate swords if you like. Your wedding will be an Instagram sensation the morning after!
