Wedding Reception Boxes and Containers

It must be the child within us that still delights in receiving a small box tied up with a pretty bow. Think about any wedding you have attended and try to remember the responses of the guests when they saw the wedding favor at their place at the table. Almost everyone probably picked up the wedding favor, looked at it and smiled. Some of the guests probably opened their small container at once. The element of a surprise gift box is just too magnetic even for adults to ignore.

One time tested use for wedding favor boxes is to send a slice of wedding cake home with your guests. It has long been said that if a young woman or man will place a piece of wedding cake under the pillow he or she will dream of the person they will one day marry. This may only be superstition but this custom of taking home a piece of wedding cake in a small favor box is still very popular.

Almost all weddings are now centered around a wedding theme. Your wedding favors give you an excellent opportunity to expand on the wedding theme you have chosen. Is your wedding reception based on a western theme, a summer garden theme or perhaps a Valentine theme? We have dozens of small containers that will fit in with your unique wedding theme. The wedding reception containers come in every size, style and shape you can think of. There are lovely little bags fashioned of tulle and ribbon. Then there are purse and shoe favor boxes or chairs favor boxes that are also reception place cards. Keep on looking at all the wonderful styles of favor containers and you will even find tin favor pails and "Linked at the Heart" favor tins that can later be used to hold pills or small pieces of jewelry.

The next question is: "What should we put in these Wedding Reception Boxes?" The correct answer to that question is: "Anything you can imagine and will fit." The smallest favor boxes will hold 2 truffles, 8-10 Jordan almonds, or a spoonful of mixed nuts. Larger sizes can hold 4 truffles. But why limit yourself to the traditional choices? How about jelly beans or potpourri or a crystal paperweight? If you think your guests would like lottery tickets, go for it. Filling these favor boxes with something that is unique to you as a couple tells your guests that you appreciate them sharing in your special day.
