Making your soap favor part of the table setting is always a special treat.  A neutral palette is especially useful in giving this favor presentation an understated, elegant feel.  Even the simplest brown box is deserving embellished with lace and a delicate flower.

Homemade wedding favor soaps are easy to diy and here's how. . .

Purchase materials which include glycerin soaps, preferable clear or white, colored dyes and soap molds.  It is recommended to cut the soap into small chunks, so it will melt evenly in the microwave or double boiler.

Once the soap has melted, you can add colored dyes that complement your wedding decor.  Do not use food coloring because it will stain skin when the soap is used.  If you prefer, you can also add scents to the melted soap at this time.

Next, it is time to pour the melted soap into the molds.  Take a tiny bit of olive oil and rub it inside each mold so that the soaps do not stick when removing them.  Choose a mold that fits with your wedding theme or embodies the personalities of the bridal couple.  From a dog and cat favor for pet lovers to a seashell wedding favor for beach lovers, your homemade wedding favor soaps should tell a story about you.  

Once you have poured the molds, allow them to sit and dry.  Approximately one hour later, they should easily pop out of the molds giving you an adorable soap.  Lastly, transform your soaps into a celebration with tulle, boxes, organza bags and pretty ribbon.  Always include a gift tag expressing your appreciation and thankfulness.  For example, if you are making heart shaped soaps, add a note saying, "Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"
