Are Bridal Shower Favors a Must-Have? Today’s Diva Dish

Planning your best friend’s bridal shower? We know how costs can add up. Take this reader, for instance, who wrote us in a party planning pickle…

I’m the MOH for my best friend’s wedding. The other bridesmaids and I are currently planning her bridal shower and we’re all chipping in for the invitations, food and decorations… but I’m not sure we’ll have budget leftover for party favors. Are they a must-have?

Help an MOH out!

Don’t worry, MOH… we’ve received this question countless times! Like most parts of traditional wedding planning, shower favors aren’t required—but it’s definitely a nice gesture to have something for guests to take home. It’s not so much whether or not favors are a must, but more a matter of how to find something inexpensive that doesn’t lack quality or style.

Have you had a chance to browse our Beau-coup favor boutique? There are loads of practical wedding favors, offering you an easy (and chic!) way to delight shower guests without breaking the bank. Here are a few of our favorites…

Cherry Blossom Glass Coasters—as low as 95¢ each

Swish Handle Cup and Saucer Sets—as low as $2.50 each

Stainless Steel Spreader with Wine Cork Handle—as low as $1.95 each

Damask Glass Tea Light Holders—as low as $1.60 each

Personalized Love Story Notes—as low as $1.30 each

Even if these favors don’t fit into your shower budget, you can still set up a candy or cookie bar and order these personalized goodie bags for only 60¢ each. That way everyone will go home with a sweet treat… and you’ll still stay well within your price limit.

Good luck with the rest of your shower planning!

Bridal Shower Invitations & Favors to Match

One of my Wedding Paper Divas colleagues and I are so excited to host a bridal shower for one of our best friends this spring. From favors to the menu, decor and (of course) the invitations, we’re oohing and aahing over every detail.

Here are some of the bridal shower themes we’re thinking about for the big event, based on both our collection of bridal shower invitations and the lovely favors in our Beau-coup favor shop. Which look do you like best?

Game Night Bridal Shower Party

Instead of something super feminine, we’re thinking about hosting a couple’s game night shower with these Check Mate bridal shower invitations and themed playing cards as inspiration.

Girly Glamour Bridal Shower

But, if the bride-to-be wants a girls-only affair, we love this pretty Sweet Wedding Dress bridal shower invitation paired with couture bridesmaid dress cookies!

Sweets & Treats Bridal Shower Party

Who doesn’t love to indulge their sweet tooth? We like the idea of hosting a dessert party with this Tea Cakes bridal shower invitation, but instead of giving sweets as favors we’d hand out these charming towel cakes to mix things up.

Tea Party Bridal Shower

A tea party bridal shower is a classic, but our adorable Tea Treasures bridal shower invitation and personalized tea bag favors give this timeless tradition a modern update.

Divine Damask Bridal Shower Party

Our bride-to-be is a fashionista to the core, so we might opt for the chic look of this Banded Damask bridal shower invitation paired with damask glass tea light holder favors.

If you agree that the delight is in the details, you will adore styling your wedding events with the help of our  Beau-coup favors boutique. With so many fun and unique options to choose from, our favors boutique allows you to effortlessly coordinate your wedding events by theme based on any of our exclusive invitations.

I chose our Popular Potluck couples shower invitation for all you foodies out there.

Any of these stylish favors from Beau-coup would serve the perfect handout for this theme:

Hosting a “something blue” shower? Our timeless Silhouette bridal shower invitation is full of classic style. Carry on the traditional theme with any of the following favors and bridal party gifts for a beautifully matched event.

Themed weddings offer yet another opportunity to dazzle your guests. If you’re saying your vows this winter, a striking invitation like our Frosty Wind winter wedding invitation will set the stage for a glamorous black and white winter wedding theme—perfect for this time of year.

Add any of these unforgettable party favors into the mix to charm guests with a chic personal touch.
