A great theme and one that would signify how lucky the wedding day is for you is the good-luck charm theme. In this theme the decorations and all the other aspects of the wedding would revolve around luck and lucky charms. These would include all those things that humans consider lucky – horseshoe wedding favors, four leaf clover decorations, ladybug favors, etc. This would make the wedding day look and seem completely magical not only to the newlyweds but also to all other guests.
The Horseshoe Wedding Favor
The horseshoe has symbolized good luck for centuries. In some countries people make rings out of the iron of the horseshoe which is said to protect one from evil temptations and bad luck. When this wonderful symbol is incorporated in a wedding theme it can be a very versatile concept. There is a lot you could do around this theme:
- Tiny silver horseshoe pendants – this could be an excellent horseshoe wedding favor. The heart charm or pendant would look exquisite and you could easily inscribe the date and your names on the back.
- Horseshoe shaped chocolates and cookies – this is perhaps the easiest to do and most loved to receive. You could have the goodies as homemade favors or ordered-in. For the horseshoe wedding favor you could even have these arranged in a horse-shaped box.
- Horseshoe boxes – you could order multi-purpose decorative favor boxes that could be used for anything your guests would choose. These could be made of different material according to your preference and budget, i.e. wood, paper mache, fiber, etc.
- Crystal decorative horseshoes – a great choice here would be the crystal horseshoes which would definitely look very impressive. The only downside here would be that this would have to be ordered well in advance or you would not get enough for all your guests. You could have whatever inscription you wanted on the back of the crystal to ensure that your near and dear one would always remember your special day.
