You’ve planned everything else for the big day and now it’s time to deal with the smaller details! I’ve had the good fortune to attend many wedding celebrations over the years and, of course, after every event, I’ve come home with a different wedding favour. Wedding favours are just one more decision to make in the long list of “to-dos” for your special day. Certainly, there are so many options to choose from, whether it’s edibles or glassware, or something different that will remind your family/friends of you and your spouse. Here are a few of my favourite wedding favour ideas:
Edible wedding favours:
- Custom bottle of wine with the bride and groom’s name on the label
- 2 delicious macaroons packaged in a small box
- Little popcorn buckets
- Customized chocolate bars
- A mini jar of honey
- Mini bottle of maple syrup
Wedding favours for the home:
- Customized playing cards
- Customized salt and pepper shakers
- Bottle openers engraved with the bride and groom’s name
- Engraved bottle stoppers
- Sticky notes with the bride and groom’s names on it
- Mini plants
- Engraved cheese spreader
- Dessert plates
- Your favourite flower seeds or vegetable seeds for the garden
Or, you could provide a donation to your favourite charity on behalf of your guests!
Out of the many wedding favours I’ve received over the years, I’ve loved the sweet treats, because let’s be honest, who doesn’t like sweet treats? Whether it’s chocolate, or macaroons or candy, it’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser. But, above all, I’ve really loved the wedding favours that can be used at home, like bottle openers, or dessert plates, etc. These are great because they’ve always reminded me of the bride and groom every time I’ve used them.
Remember, there are tons of great options out there so take a look and I’m sure you will find something that’s great for you and your spouse-to-be! I love hearing about all the fun/interesting wedding favours out there. Feel free to share with us – what are some of your favourites?
