Bath and Soap Favors
Bath And Soap Favors: A Luxurious Touch For Weddings And Bridal Showers
Today's brides opt for wedding favors and wedding shower favors that are both luxurious and practical, like artisan soap or other bath treats. Almost all forms of wedding favors are beautiful, but those which aren't practical will likely end up languishing in guests' homes. Packages of handmade scented soap, and similar bath related items like lotions, make wedding favors that guests can actually use. When wrapped attractively, well chosen soaps can become wedding favors that will make guests smile each and every time they use the gift.
Soap is one of the most versatile wedding favors, and feels equally at home in a formal or casual setting. It can be particularly challenging to find the right favors for a small wedding, but a luxurious gift of soap can strike the right balance of extravagance and familiarity. At an intimate outdoor wedding, such as one in a small garden, giving soap in a sophisticated scent is an ideal choice for favors that are special, but not overly formal. For a garden or outdoor wedding, make the garden wedding favors feel even more appropriate by choosing soap scented with a kind of plant that grows in the setting.
Soaps make an equally elegant and practical choice for favors at a bridal shower. Wedding shower favors are best when they offer guests a touch of personal luxury, which makes soap a great choice, along with candle favors. Both candle and soap favors hold the promise of a sensory treat to be enjoyed after the bridal shower. This makes them great choices as bridal shower favors, because they help to prolong the feeling of special celebration beyond the end of the bridal shower party.
Soap favors for a bridal shower or a wedding feel particularly luxurious when paired with another bath item, such as a body wash or hand crème in a matching or complementary scent. A set of soap and candle favors that share a fragrance, a package that serves as an invitation to a romantic candlelit bath, is also a popular choice as a favor for guests. Traditionally feminine scents like rose and lavender fit well for favors at a bridal shower. The favors at a wedding must appeal equally well to all guests, so a unisex scent like sage or citrus is most appropriate.
