Top 5 creative wedding favoursDecember 3, 2013
A box of surprises
Suitable for all guests, fill small boxes with items that represent you as a couple, then seal it with ribbon and a tag with their name on it.
Suggested items: a penny for good luck, sweets, bubbles, puzzles, figurines or anything you think suits you best.
Jar of sweets
Have some fun filling up jars with your favourite sweets. Mix it up or keep to one type of sweet, perfect for everyone to enjoy.
If you want to get even more creative, decorate the jar with fabric to seal the top of it. Charms can also be attached to some string, to tie the whole thing together.
The wedding favour is very simple to make, so there’s no need to spend too much money to make your guests feel special.
Mini bottles of alcohol always go down well as wedding favours. Miniature beverages can be bought in bulk, at good value prices.
To add your own personal touch, take inspiration from Alice in Wonderland and attached messages to the bottles.
For the children, soft drinks also come in miniature form, so there’s no need for them to be left out!
Everyone has a sweet tooth for something, so choose your favourite chocolate and use the wrapper to say something special.
Some printing businesses have introduced a chocolate wrapping service, ideal for helping your wedding favours look professional.
If you have impressive culinary skills, try creating your wedding favours from scratch by making homemade jam.
Each jar can have a decorated label, marking your names and the date of your special day.
