Wedding favours are not only a keepsake of your special day for your guests, but also a true conversation piece. Finding the perfect wedding favour that will not only be unique but also a representation of you and your partner can often be both challenging and expensive. Finding that perfect balance between unforgettable and affordable is a challenge many couples face.
Fear no more! DIY wedding favours are becoming ever popular, with blogs and search engines like Pinterest giving couples endless amounts of ideas for creative favours. Here are some of the most creative ideas we have come across and would love to share with you – our readers and future clients!
1. Goodie Bags to Go!
Who doesn’t love a sweet treat to take away! Using various jars and bowls, lay out an assortment of candies, chocolates and nuts for your guests to pick and choose a selection to take home in little goodie bags. These self serve stations are the perfect way to send your guests home with a smile and satisfied tummy!
2. A Nightcap
Do you and your significant other have signature cocktails at your wedding? What better idea than to a make-your-own-cocktail favour! Bundle up the fixings that are used to make your signature drinks and attach a mini recipe so your guests can continue the party from home! Including fresh herbs or garnishes with the favour give not only a pop of colour, but an intriguing scent that will leave your guests excited to bring your celebration home with them!
Send your guests home with a gift that will grow with your love! Succulents, herbs, or small potted flowers are small takeaways that will be a lasting memory of your wedding with your guests. Customize these little potted goodies with notes from you and your partner. You can even have these double as escort cards – include their name and table number on the pot tags!
4. Share the Spark
There are many different candle tutorials available online for you and your partner to customize candles for your guests! Choose your preferred scent and jar to house the candle and sign it with some love on a little note wrapped around! Not only is this a budget friendly option, but gives you and your partner a fun little project to work on together.
5. The Toss!
What better way to exit your wedding than have your guests throw confetti! Mini confetti bags are absolutely adorable and give your guests a fun event to look forward to at the end of the ceremony or celebration! Even include these in your save-the-date for your guests to bring to the wedding!
6. Caffeine Queen
Are you and your partner coffee lovers? Bundle up some coffee beans in a little jar to send home with your guests after the reception!
7. Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice
Send your guests home with a treat that can be added to future dishes at home! Use various spices and seasonings so your guests have a conversation piece!
Yet another fun and creative wedding favour that doubles as a send off from your ceremony or reception! Have your guests blow the bubbles during your exit for some cool and fun photos!
9. A Taste of Heaven
Do you or your partner have a sweet tooth? Use mini jars to house your favourite dessert or snack for your guests to take home with them!
