Aside from the memories of a beautiful day, your wedding favour should be the gift that gets everyone talking.
After all, not only is it the most thoughtful way of saying thank you to your guests but as the last part of the day that goes home with them, it should be as inspiring and special as the day itself.
Throw away the traditional sugared almonds and personalised mint tins, because it’s time to make your guests laugh as much as they did at the Best Man Speech or tear up in the same way they did watching the first dance.
To help guests remember your day in the years to come, opt for gifting flower seeds that will grow in their garden or in a small pot.
If your budget is tight, this is an ideal gifting option, as seeds can be purchased in bulk and decanted into pretty envelopes or satin bags.
2. Create Silly Snaps
A photo booth always goes down well at any party, and what better way to create a favour that will have your guests laughing out loud than a super silly photo booth set-up?
Ensure there are props galore for people to choose from so they can really raid the dressing-up box, and as an additional take-home, provide a simple photo frame that can house their snap when they get home.
3 . Say it With Sweets
If you’re doing your wedding favours yourself, a pop-up pick & mix display from Candyking can be the sweetest way to say thank you.
Select a range of sweets and provide goodie bags for your guests to dip into throughout the ceremony or take home with them.
Adding quotes to paper bags can be another way of making it more unique such as;
“Sweet of You to Come”, “Midnight Snack”, or “Love is Sweet”.
4. Add Some Sparkle
Winter weddings are the ideal time for fireworks and light displays, so let your guests take home some of the magic for themselves. Sparklers or lanterns can be a simple favour that allows them to recreate a sparkling event at home.
5. Turn it Up
Playlists may have gone digital, but there’s’ nothing quite like having a soundtrack to play in your car that’s been created by someone you love.
If you have some time on your hands and want to stick to a tight budget, turn your wedding music into a soundtrack. Even dedicating particular songs to your guests can add a personal touch that will have them smiling on their drive home.
Whether you’ve got the cash to splash on your big day, or are looking to get personal and do it yourself, we hope these unique ideas will inspire your imagination, and add an everlasting impression to your wedding.
