Wedding favours are there to favoured and as a reminder of a special day. There is no right or wrong when it comes to selecting wedding favours. Your type of wedding favour will depend on the types of guests, your wishes and of course your budget.
You need to decide what type of wedding favour you would like to give. Would you like to offer you guests a wedding favour they can enjoy at their wedding with the meal? E.g. Mini jam, sauce bottles? Possibly a type of sweet wedding favour your guests can enjoy after their meal. You also have an option of the type of wedding favour that can be used to entertain guests which is always a great ice breaker for guests that do not know each other? You could offer quiz or game types of favours.
Once you have decided on the type of wedding favour, you need to consider the options of how you will be presenting the… For jams and sweets, you have the option of presenting your gifts in a pretty glass jar, or old vintage style tin. You also have the option of using little gifts bags and ribbons to add your personal touch.
If you are considering making your own weddings favours, you need to consider what will be required and work out costing before you start as DIY wedding favours are not always the most affordable option. And you need to avoid any last-minute rushes or stress. However, opting for the DIY option can become a fun activity for the Bride and her bridesmaids or even better why not do this with the hubby to be.
Most Brides want the wedding favours to co-ordinate with their theme and colours which is perfect, but if you want these gifts to be used for years to come and as a great reminder, think of gifting your guests with something practical.
