Weddings are so fun to plan, but one thing that is more fun than most other things involved in the planning process is the wedding favours. Do you remember being a child and having a birthday party? You’d send your friends home with a party bag that’s full of fun things and chocolate and bubbles, etc. Well, wedding favours are the grown-up version of that!
Wedding favours can be pretty much anything, but they have to capture your wedding day. They’re the perfect way to send off your guests and whether you do it with little bags of sugared almonds, or you send guests home with personalised alcohol gifts and a wedding cupcake, they will always remember your wedding day based on the favours you choose. You can choose practical gifts or fun ones, but just make sure that you have enough for each guest plus extras, plus something different for the children in the wedding guest list. Some of the best gifts that you’ll ever choose are listed for you below.
- Bottle openers. If you’re going to send away your guests with mini personalised alcohol gifts, you’ll need to ensure that they can open them up, right? Well, a pocket-sized favour like this one can be engraved with your date of your wedding, your new surname and you can make them about you. If you are both into fitness, perhaps your bottle opener is shaped like a dumbbell. If you both love holidays, then a suitcase shape would be perfect.
- Wedding cakes. We all know that tiered wedding cakes are an inconvenience – although they are beautiful. Cutting them up and wrapping slices of cake into napkins? Not the best idea when you’ve got people partying the night away. One of the most popular wedding favours come in the form of cupcakes, or perfectly individual cubed wedding cakes shaped like gifts. You can buy some chic boxes and ribbons and have fun individually packing them up for your guests.
- Swag bags. This one is really budget dependent, but if you have the money to send away designer bags with swag and vouchers inside, that’s a luxury wedding favour to offer your guests. You can do this one on a budget and use mini rucksacks to carry the swag.
- Pick n Mix! Go a little old school with this one and set up a pick n mix station. You can tailor your sweet choices to match your wedding colours, and you can leave a bag and a scoop at every single chair so that everyone can go and help themselves, filling their bag! This is a delicious way to send your guests away, and everyone will remember it!
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of options when it comes to wedding favours and there’s no wrong options for your wedding day. Whatever suits you is what will work the most and you should let everyone know your choices – just in case of any allergies hanging around!
