					In the ever-evolving effort to personalize your wedding, sometimes do-it-yourself
(DIY) wedding favors and other wedding accessories are the best option for a truly
unique wedding. They are also a great option for cutting costs while still creating a
memorable event. With a little creativity, DIY favors can add the bride and groom's
personal style to the wedding day and give guests a little piece of that special day to
take home.

While wedding favors are often added as a complement to an already developed
wedding theme, they can also be a great starting point for designing a wedding theme
that's truly all your own. Maybe the bride and groom really want a wedding theme
that most would consider daring, like a "Pirate/Love on the High Seas" theme. A great
DIY wedding favor idea is to get mini treasure chests and fill them with treats that
look like treasure.

If you do not yet have a theme, but know that you love the idea of having favors with
your favorite inspirational quote on it, consider something that your guests will use
and read often. Remember that almost anything can be personalized, so whether it's a
deck of cards, a magnet, or a set of coasters, a little time and effort can transform
anything.

Another DIY wedding favor idea that is both fun and cost effective is to bake your
own goodies. Throw a little cooking get-together the week before the wedding and
invite a group of friends and family-members who love baking. Typically you will be
surrounded with people willing to help, so don't be afraid to accept it. The only other
thing you will need, other than the baking goods, is several packs of wedding favor
containers. End the baking party with an assembly line for packing and sealing the
favors, followed by decorating the favor containers to match the rest of your wedding
accessories.

You may even want to personalize your wedding accessories and favors with the
couple's monogram and wedding date. This is a very easy DIY project that can be
conquered in little time. Simply choose the personalized stickers, tags, or satin ribbon
that matches your wedding theme, and add them to your wedding favors for a special
and stylish touch!

Always remember that there is no right or wrong way to personalize your wedding.
There are literally thousands of DIY wedding accessories and favors to choose from,
and with the many ways to personalize them the possibilities for a unique wedding are
truly endless.
