Personalized Wedding Favor Orders On The Rise for 2009; It's Hot, Hot, Hot!

It's that time of year. Brides all over the U.S. are shopping for the finishing touches for their spring or summer wedding.

This year there will be 2,219,264 weddings in the United States, up from 2,212,923 in 2008, according to The Wedding Report. A quick glance tells me that's up close to 7,000 over last year. The same publication predicts brides will spend close to $30,000 when it comes to planning for their wedding in 2009.

I've been receiving phone calls for wedding favors earlier this year than in 2008. An increasing number of them are from bridesmaids helping out with bridal showers or assisting brides with selecting wedding favors.

It's no wonder brides need help planning their weddings. The Wedding Report says nearly 50 percent of U.S. weddings this year will have between 100 and 200 guests. Another 25 percent will have more than 200 attending their special day. Favors are a wonderful way to thank your guests for sharing your special day. They also serve as a special reminder of your day.

Whether you're planning a beach wedding, or just love the beach, our sea glass soaps make popular favors. For other ideas check out our personalized and monogrammed soap bars.

Bulk Sea Glass Soaps

For large weddings with 100 or more guests, it is much more cost-effective to create your own favors. Our most popular assemble-it-yourself favors are made using our bulk sea glass soaps. At $70 per gallon (enough for 30-40 guests), it is economical, yet beautiful. Most brides choose to package them in cello bags and tie them up with ribbons matching their wedding colors. Add a personalized hangtag and hot-glue a shell to create a seaside-themed favor that guests will love!

Sea Glass Soaps with Hangtags

For smaller weddings, or for those who have the budget to spend a bit more on their guests, save time and energy by ordering finished favors. Our popular seaglass wedding favor soaps are handmade, packaged by us, and are finished with free personalized hangtags. Each pillowpak contains 50 pieces of colorful seaglass made out of our moisturizing and long-lasting soap.

Whatever your choice is for your 2009 wedding favors, I wish you a beautiful day and many blessings in the years to come. Enjoy!
