The perfect wedding favour is a wonderful reminder of your big day and nearly as traditional as the bride wearing white and definitely something that should be skipped. They don’t have to be that big or that expensive and can match your wedding theme, the season you got married in or a little glimpse into the happy couple. And for those crafty types – you will be in your element – there are plenty of wedding favour ideas that can have the added bonus of being handmade by the bride, the groom or both.
The Keep Forever Wedding Favour
Do you have a poet of a creative writer amongst your circle of friends? If the answer is yes – fantastic! Why not ask them to put together a poem, a rhyme or song that celebrates your newly wedded status. Printed on beautiful card or handwritten straight to paper, this is a true wonderful wedding favour that can be kept for many years to come.
Another wedding favour that can be kept is a CD filled with a collection of songs that most represent the happy couple and can include your ‘first dance’ song and a couple of standard wedding songs – you know the ones – that the DJ always sticks on.
Matchboxes complete with funny quotes are both practical and collectible but a wedding favour that might need to be kept out of harms way. If you know there will be small children around, possible not such a good idea but if you are thinking about doing a wedding favour bag to give to your guests as they leave then a perfect little addition.
The Keep Until You Eat Wedding Favour
If you are not too fussed about giving a wedding favour that can be kept longer than a couple of days than the next two wedding favour ideas will be right up your street.
For the lovers of Coca Cola – and you probably have a bottle with your name on that you refuse to drink – why not give guests their very own bottles. This wedding favour is perfect if your wedding is going to be small and intimate, but having said that, and if you have some wiling volunteers, would work well for a large wedding too!
Bags of sweets or handmade biscuits are another popular wedding favour choice and are easy to do yourself and can include a pretty ribbon that matches your colour theme and a personal gift tag with the date of your wedding on. You don’t even have to include the same sweets or biscuits, and is probably a good idea of your guests are of mixed ages – one bag for the children, one for the grown-ups.
There are so many wedding favour ideas your guests would be extremely pleased to receive from personalised pens to miniature bottles of hot sauces to personalised packets of seeds. Why not head over to our dedicated pinterest board full of ideas – there is sure to be at least one that is ideal for your big day.
If you do decide to opt for an edible wedding favour why not speak to one of our team, who would be more than happy to offer their expertise or head over to our website where you can browse our latest Wedding Brochure at your leisure.
And one last word of advice – avoid chocolate unless you’re getting married in the wintertime – you definitely don’t want a melted wedding favour.
