Wedding favours Favours are not essential but many couples choose to give their guests a small gift or memento on their wedding day.
There are a huge variety of options available to suit every budget.
You can combine your place setting with your favour by writing your guests' names on pretty pebbles or wooden hearts, or icing their names on to cakes or biscuits.
Home-made favours are a great way of adding a personal touch while keeping costs down, from biscuits and chocolates to jams and pickles.
Popular favours are sweets and chocolates, which can be an inexpensive option. You can add a personal touch to your shop-bought favours by making your own favour boxes, using small organza bags to match your colour theme, adding custom labels and buying or making personalised bags.
Some couples set up a treats table where guests can help themselves to sweets and fill personalised bags with their treats.
Other favour ideas include; lottery tickets, miniature bottles of alcohol; bubbles and packets of seeds for your guests to grow.
You can also get inspirations for your favours from your theme, ie - the beach, country garden or butterflies.
Alternatively couples can choose to donate the money they would have spent on favours to charity, some charities supply personalised wedding favour cards, explaining the donation to your guests. You could also buy charity pins for your guests.
