French Themed Weddings

Aimer pour Toujours
Love for ever


A French themed wedding may easily be the most romantic theme that you can choose.  And your options are endless!  You can work the theme into your dress, the table décor, your wedding favours, a beautiful venue and perhaps the best of all French cuisine.

Here is a collection of ideas which we really liked. The first would be the beautiful vintage lace vale, the soft rusty pink flowers in a white oversized "wine glass", a stunning wedding cake with exquisite detail and of course, champagne!!!!!

We have some beatiful wedding favours which will also go well with a french themed wedding.  The first wedding favour that we would recommend is none other than the classic Eiffel Tower opener:



Then there is the classic Fleur-de-lis glass coaster set.  The Fleur-de-lis symbol is synonam with France and their elegant culture.  Equally as stunning is the Gold Brocade Wedding Favour coasters.  You can easily insert a photo of the couple, or keep our little "Thank you" card and allow your wedding guests to choose which photo to put in the favour

The little street light place holders are the perfect favours to transport your wedding guests back to a full moon night in Paris....

The little damask candle holders are perfect, not only to add a bit of romance to your reception tables, but it also fits in perfectly with a French theme.  Your guests will absolutely adore the attention to detail on this wedding favour.

  In addition to the wedding favours, you can use beautiful items to provide a certain je ne sais quoi to the table, below are some stunning ideas


Good luck with all the planning, and remember, the Simply Favours team is always here to help.

Until next time, good bye :-)

Lovebird Shakers for Wedding Guests


The wedding favour is presented in a clear gift-box design that surrounds the lovebird with a clever, cut out tree bursting with heart-shaped leaves.  The base of the wedding favour gift box is white with a square, soft-green graphic in front that says Lovebirds Chrome Wine Stopper between two delicate, brown branches, and on top of the gift box is a white-satin bow and a matching 'For You' tag.

A Vintage Affair

Vintage items just have a certain glamour to them and brings nostalgic memories to life.

This article is about vintage themed weddings, however, you can steal a few ideas here even for modern weddings, by simply adding little touches of vintage glam to your wedding for that extra bit of attention to detail.


The stationary used to invite your guests to the wedding will be the first glimpse into your wedding day. Make it count by making use of all the wonderful vintage fonts out there. A few examples are: Candy Inc, Raconteur and Aspire examples seen below:



Bridesmaids’ outfits can be rounded off with white lace gloves and peep toe shoes.

Then there are the shoes… We found this amazing little shop in Cape Town that will decorate any shoes you have with the most beautiful lace, or a gorgeous brooch. But don't worry if you cant make it to Cape Town, you can visit them at their online store

vintage decor inspirationWhen it comes to your  decor - think small details. As previously mentioned, small touches can create a whimsical vintage feel, drape a string of pearls over tall lanterns or over  your cake stand. Colour choice is also important. Vintage pastels such as yellows, pinks, greens and purples work well together.


You can add a vintage touch to your modern decor in various ways you just have to get creative. 





 For the men we have classic hip flasks.

Decidedly different, yet timeless and traditional,

our handsome hip flask is an

unforgettable gift for any gentleman! 

Reminiscent of pocket hip

flasks manufactured in the 1920’s and 1930’s,

this is the perfect gift for a vintage themed wedding.
