Personalized favors are very popular and may include such items as custom wine bottles, chocolates, candles or gift bags. Some favor businesses buy favor supplies wholesale for resell. Craft-lovers may want to design original favors.


The finishing touches of bridal and groom attire are found in the finishing touches of the coordinating accessories. Offer an online wedding business showcasing wedding accessories. Create a niche and specialize in certain areas of accessories. Add to the beauty of wedding day tresses with hair accessories such as veils, tiaras, combs, hats, fascinators, combs, barrettes and floral wreaths. Other areas to consider include items such as gloves, ring pillows, flower girl baskets, petticoats or bouquet jewelry.
