Personalized Wedding Favors for Summer Weddings

The Tradition

June has long been considered the best month to get married, a tradition which is believed to have begun in Ancient Rome. The month of June is named for Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage and childbirth, who was married to the God Jupiter. It was believed that couples who were married in June would be “blessed with prosperity and happiness”.

Romans celebrated this union on June 1, and the month has since been considered the best time to tie the knot. As it also coincided with their annual bath, it was a great time to get married since they would smell fresh and clean! The tradition of the bride carrying flowers was to help mask any lingering body odor. Thankfully, today we don’t have to worry about that! We can shower as often as we wish.

Still, the month of June remains the most popular month for weddings. “For they say when you marry in June, you’re a bride all your life.” Weddings are a big day in the bride and groom’s lives, and a lot of time and planning goes into making their day unique and unforgettable, which includes family traditions passed down through generations. While some traditions are family-specific, others are standard time-honored customs dating back further than anyone can remember.

These traditions play a huge part surrounding the wedding and include bridal showers, bachelor parties,  bachelorette parties, rehearsal dinners, and more. One lasting tradition is the giving of gifts to the bridesmaids and groomsmen, which is often a distinctive gift that means something special to each individual.


Making your Day Memorable for Everyone

You can take the gift-giving to the next level and make it a memorable day for all of your guests, not just family and close friends! There are several fun ways to get guests involved in the wedding, to make the event more fun for everyone involved.

One idea is to provide disposable cameras on every table, so guests can take pictures of events as they happen. Your photographer can only be in one place at a time! So this helps capture moments you might miss and provide proof of some of the funny stories you might be told later!


Personalized Gifts for your Guests

Another wonderful idea is sending your guests home with custom wedding favors as souvenirs of your special day! While the traditional wedding is held indoors in a Church, many are held outdoors, in backyards, vineyards, parks, and even the beach.

Summer is the perfect time for an outdoor wedding. Gifts customized with the names of the bride and groom, along with the date of the wedding, provide guests with a permanent reminder of your blissful day.


Beach Weddings

A popular venue during the summer, beach weddings can add a bit of fun to your big day. Since they are held outdoors, you can pretty much do anything you like! Personalized gifts your wedding guests can use during the wedding and then take home with them once the event is over, makes a great keepsake for your special day.

 

Custom Sunglasses

Our Baja Neon and Malibu styles are our most popular personalized sunglasses for weddings. You can choose a color or two to match your wedding theme, or go bold with an assortment of colors and let guests choose the color they want.

An easy way to do this is to place a bowl near the entrance or in the center of each table with a selection of styles and/or colors, and let everyone grab the pair they want on the way in (or out). Guests will not only be guaranteed protection for their eyes, but will be able to see the event unfold without glare or interference from the sun.

 

Sunscreen and SPF Lip Balm

A necessity when spending time outdoors is sunscreen and lip balm containing SPF. When attending an event such as a wedding, it might not be on the minds of attendees to bring these items with them. Place large bowls around the event filled with custom sunscreen and lip balm, and let guests grab what they need.

Everyone will be able to enjoy your event longer without the fear of sunburn or chapped lips. Afterward, they can take the sunscreen and lip balm with them when they leave. In addition to standard sunscreen or lip balm, we also offer sunscreen with an included lip balm for a complete product!

 

Koozies

If you are serving canned or bottled drinks during your reception, personalized koozies are another fun idea for beach weddings. You can create your own design or opt for one of our stock designs, like our Flower, Gold Wedding Rings, or Heart in the Sand designs, and add your names and the date of the event. We have several designs that would make wonderful gifts for an outdoor wedding. You can see our entire selection of stock designs here.

There are many other ideas you could come up with to give guests a more memorable day, and we have products to cover them all at Promotional Webstores.

Why Lip Balm is King in the Promotional Industry

Custom lip balm is one of the most popular promotional tools in any industry, and it’s no wonder as to why! With their low price and popularity, custom lip balm allows companies of all sizes to easily and affordably promote their brand on a grand scale. Here are just a few reasons why lip balm is so popular for promotions:

Affordability

Custom lip balm is a budget-friendly way to promote any size business. It provides you with an economical and practical promotional item that is not only inexpensive and reusable, but also a customer favorite.

Convenience

Small and portable, personalized lip balm is perfect for any promotion. Ideal for keeping in a  brief case or bag to leave behind when visiting clients, lip balm is very portable and easy to transport in large quantities for marketing events and tradeshows. Not only are lip balm tubes easy to carry, you create an attractive display with a glass or plastic fish bowl or other item to dispense them that will hold a large amount to minimize restocking

Brand awareness

Custom lip balm is a great way to promote your company to the masses! Whether people keep it or pass it on to someone else, your business will gain positive recognition. Lip balm labels can be customized for any special or promotional event and handed out to everyone who attends. The recipient will remember your brand each time they use the lip balm, and with a colorful and unique label everyone around them will notice your logo and make them aware of your brand.<

Versatile

You can put anything you want on a lip balm label! While the standard is a company logo, you can easily customize a lip balm with a full color graphic to make your promotion stand out from the rest. Whether you are promoting your business or a special event, custom lip balm is a wonderful promotional tool. People love them for large events such as tradeshows, as well as small, personal events like weddings. They make great take-home gifts to remind people of your event or special day.

Popularity

There are so many kinds of gifts you can personalize for brand awareness and promotional events, but the truth is people prefer to receive gifts that are practical and reusable as opposed to one-use products, gimmicks, or promotional flyers and business cards. A gimmicky fad gift will be tossed after a day or so at the most, while lip balm will be used for months, each day reminding the recipient of your brand.

Custom lip balm is the perfect addition to any marketing campaign, whether used as a stand-alone promotional item or included in a group of personalized products.
