Do Yourself A Favour
I’ve written about Wedding Favours in the past, but ideas change and I wanted to update you with some of the latest simple ideas I have found across the web.
As you read through, you’ll discover that most of these gifts are just that—simple. You’ll be happy to learn that majority of memorable wedding favours are often both easy to create and easy on the wallet. You can thank me later 🙂
A personalised illustrated label makes a chocolate bar infinitely more sophisticated. Dark or milk is up to you, but the bars are sure to be a hit for guests with a sweet tooth (so, everyone!).
Bottles of olive oil are the perfect favour for a Greek destination wedding—or a fun way to celebrate your Greek heritage.
Mini bottles of homemade limoncello, a popular dessert drink, make the perfect post-wedding treat. There are loads of easy recipes online
Bags of seeds are generally seen as a symbol of growth and harmony, which makes them a meaningful wedding favour. You can use any flowers you like, but it’ll be especially touching to gift a type of bloom that was used throughout your day.
Do you know what makes a great photobooth snapshot? A group of your best friends, all sporting tattoos of you and your love’s faces.
Colourful, handmade fans keep guests cool during summertime ceremonies and also serve as the perfect photo booth prop. You could also print with the day’s running order and kill two birds with one fan!
Looking for a quick way to repurpose your wedding flowers? Towards the end of the evening, ask a designated person to break down centrepieces and bouquets and place them into glass bottles. It’s a great way to ensure that guests bring home an actual piece of the big day—and guarantees that those pricy blooms won’t go to waste.
For the kids
Keep it simple on the kid’s table. A pack of crayons, a clipboard of fresh paper, and pair of cute shades are all you need to keep little one’s content throughout the event.
Mini hot sauce bottles
If you and your spouse-to-be are known to carry hot sauce on you wherever you go, the spicy condiment might be the way to go when it’s time to choose favours.
Here’s a bright idea: Fill a mini lightbulb shaped jar with your favourite jelly beans. Tie them with name tags if you’d like them to double as place cards.
Corked bottles of rosemary-infused oil make an unexpected favour. On the tag, be sure to include its multiple uses. Or mix it up with homemade garlic oil or chilli oil. Perfect for foodie couples.
Opt for millennial pink key chains, emblazoned with an equally millennial slogan, for your girls and navy or jet versions for the guys.
Put together a playlist of your wedding’s best tunes and burn them onto CDs so guests can keep dancing long after they leave the dance floor.
Planning an Autumn wedding? Why not give everyone a toffee apple, add a personalised name tag and it doubles up as a stylish place card.
