With our suggestions for refreshing themed wedding favours, Canadian summer weddings can be a breeze! As summer temperatures rise, it is not surprising that so many Canadians choose to have their wedding parties at this time. The conditions are just right for a variety of outdoor marriage ceremonies and receptions, and couples can share their love with each other amidst the natural beauty across the country.

For summer weddings, it is important that details such as your wedding favours also reflect the time of year. The weather is pleasant and the colours are vibrant. As your reception guests arrive, welcome them with a small memento to reflective of this warm occasion.

In general, summer wedding favours will focus more on the outdoors and the positive feelings that we receive from nature during the warmer months. These gift ideas will usually have the following themes:

Bees & Butterflies: Celebrating the spirit of nature’s beauty and efficiency. Give your guests mobiles with butterflies so that they think of you each time the summer breeze moves their wings.

The Seaside: A reminder of the warmth of the sun, sand and surf. Fill miniature glass bowls with sand, shells, water and floating candles that your guests can take home after the event. Beach favors make great keepsake giveaways!

Travel: Symbolising true freedom and having the world at your fingertips, give your guests guest books for the area around your Canadian wedding location as favours.

Flowers: Experience the colours and fragrances of summer. Print place cards on flower seed paper that your guests can plant and enjoy for years to come.

Garden Favours: Bright and colourful is the idea, and garden wedding favours like seed favors are a beautifly expression…where love grows as will the love of a happily married couple. A fairtale wedding, after all, is the seed of something that will grow stronger and more precious in time.

Your wedding favours should also match the atmosphere and tone of your wedding as well as its location. Of course, the best stores will help you to make the right purchase as they provide you with the variety that you need to find a suitable present for your guests.
