Planning a wedding? Custom labeled candles are a wedding favor to give to your guests as a way to remember and commemorate the special day. Candles are among wedding decorations and favors that last well beyond the ceremony and are universally liked. In other words, they’re a great choice for a big, diverse group.

A Great Gift and Multifunctional

Candles can double as a decoration and a party favor. We all love candles and a label will make your guests remember the day every time they burn it. Kristin and Company’s custom labeled candles are also a great reception decoration and table topper.

Soy Wax for Safety

Our candles are ideal for wedding decorations and favors because they are made from soy wax, which burns at a lower temperature making them safer than traditional paraffin candles. This is an important consideration for guests with small children.

Recommended scents for custom labeled candles:

Love Spell and Soulmates scents are the perfect scents to celebrate and remember your special day. Another choice you can’t go wrong with if you aren’t sure which scent guests might like is unscented candles.

  • Love Spell
  • Soulmates
  • Unscented

 

Love Spell

Love Spell is a sweet bouquet of blended summer flowers and mandarins.

Flowers – The sweet, refreshing smell of a bouquet of flowers. This is sure to remind guests of all the flowers surrounding the ceremony.

Mandarins – The sweet, citrusy scent that heightens awareness, often added to floral scents.

Originating in China, mandarins are tropical and sub-tropical fruit. This reminder of sunny weather is a perfect match for a summer wedding.

Historically, the Chinese viewed the mandarin as a symbol of good fortune. That certainly bodes well for the beginning of a long marriage! Traditional Chinese beliefs also view oranges as a sign of expected positive change. And marriage certainly brings a lot of positive changes with it. Such references to good luck in the future make the mandarin an appropriate choice for wedding decorations and favors.

Love Spell is available in 8, 16, 18, and 28 ounce sizes.

Soulmates

Soulmates is a light musk with lily of the valley and sandalwood, along with a touch of vanilla.

Lily of the valley – A sweetly scented flower. Adorning expensive weddings of modern-day royalty, candles carrying the scent of lily of the valley are a “sweet” compromise that’s easy on your wallet.

Sandlewood – From a tree indigenous to India, sandlewood holds a dry, woody scent that reduces tension, enhances your mood, and is generally relaxing. It blends well with other scents, lily of the valley and vanilla being no exception!

Vanilla – Indigenous to central Mexico, the vanilla bean now grows in multiple locations, Madagascar now being the largest producer. This rich, mellow scent is an enduring favorite that reduces stress. No wonder we insert the scent in so many baked goods. However, no need to bake anything to enjoy the scent when your guests go home with this vanilla-laden candle.

Soulmates is available in 8, 16, 18, and 28 ounce sizes.

Unscented

Unscented candles are another good choice for a couple of reasons. Some people are sensitive to smell or have preferences for certain scents and not others. An unscented candle allows you to appeal to all tastes.

Why Label?

Why are custom labeled candles a good idea? Custom labeled candles add a personal touch to the day and a way for guests to take a keepsake of the day home with them. They’re like the playbill to a good play. Only, in this case you’re not acting – your day is actually here!

What Should the Label Say?

The label could simply have the bride’s and groom’s names, wedding date, and location. Clean and simple to commemorate the special day.

Additonally, it’s wise to include the name of the candle and its description. This is especially helpful if you purchase multiple candles for guests to choose from.

Remember, even on the largest candle, label space is limited and you don’t want the label to be too cluttered. No worries, however, because our in-house design team can help you come up with a label design. You have enough to deal with preparing for the wedding.

How Should the Label Be Designed?

There are so many options! Do you have wedding colors? A candle that coordinates is the perfect way to commemorate the day and tie your party favor into the day’s theme.

Stick to the Script?

A calligraphy script is traditional and elegant, but a modern look can be sophisticated too.

Remember Proportions

Then there’s the size and shape of your labels. One element that should determine this is the size and shape of the candle it’s labeling. You want the label to be proportional to the candle.
