Retro Wedding Favors

Weddings with a retro theme, that is any period after the Second World War, are becoming increasingly popular. But coming up with suitably retro wedding favors can be a tricky task. Ideally you will need to pick favors that match the era you have chosen, for instance, 1950s rock n roll or the swinging sixties and which will help set the mood for the rest of the day.

If you are busy planning a wedding with a retro theme in mind or if you just want some wedding favors with a retro feel, then here are a few ideas to inspire you:

Retro Candy: Choose candies from your childhood or from your chosen era if you can lay your hands on them. A favor of retro candy is a good way of getting your guests to reminisce of times past. Popular retro favorites are Bazooka gum, candy cigarettes, Bit’O’Honey, Necco mini rolls, Boston Baked Beans and possibly most retro of all, Pez (plus the cute dispensers).

Retro Daisies: A daisy theme is perfect for a 1950s or 60s retro theme. Look on websites such as Etsy.com for some vintage Lucite daisies either loose or in the form of buttons, pendants or beads which you can add to your wedding favors with some polka dot ribbon.

Use paper or silk daisies to decorate votive holders or photograph frames. Check out your local craft store or online retailers for bulk purchase deals.

Retro Cocktails: Martini glasses add a touch of kitsch to a wedding and make great wedding favors when filled with chocolates or candy. Other options include candles in martini glasses, sachets of cocktail mixes placed inside a martini glass or martini glass shaped coasters, key rings or travel fobs!

Look out for champagne saucers which coordinate especially well with a 1950s theme. You could serve up your toasts in them at the reception or simply fill them with chocolates or candies.

Retro Couple: Do you recall the cute motif of the black and white couple? Why not add that motif to your wedding favors in the form of custom cookies or as a simple graphic on your favor boxes, labels, stickers and thank you tags. It will no doubt send your guests on a trip down memory lane!

More Retro Favors: Get creative with Elvis themed wedding favors like mini guitar shaped mint tins or boxes or burn your own Elvis CD!
