Candles make good gifts whether they're for birthdays, anniversaries, or weddings. You can get candles in pretty much any shape or form you want. For example, if you need beach wedding favors, you can buy beach pail candle holders to go with the theme. If you're getting married in the fall, you can buy autumn-inspired candles. There are snowflake candles, gel candles, tea candles, votives, candles that look like three-tiered wedding cakes, mini coffee cup candles, and any other candle you can imagine.
Candles are very traditional, so if you're going for a more alternative approach to your wedding favors, consider doing something really different like bundling sticks of incense together and tying them with ribbon. Then again, if you just can't get candle wedding favors out of your mind, you can still exercise a little creativity and originality by making your own candles. Visit a craft retailer for DIY kits. Keeping with the whole candle theme, you could also place candles into empty wine bottles and light them until the candles begin to melt. The melted wax will form long tendrils down the base of the wine bottle, making elegant candle wedding favors. Instead of using full-sized bottles, try small candles and small bottles for the same effect.
