Do us an (unforgettable) favour! Never mind sugared almonds; try these curiously quirky wedding favours on for size instead!
With all things wedding getting a dare-to-be-different upgrade, don’t forget to inject a bit of fun with your choice of quirky favours!
Teabags & Tea leaves
Tea-loving guests will always appreciate a brew! Give your loved ones a pretty teabag packet for their favours, or go one step further and create your own tea blend in bijou glass tubes.
Getting married in the summer or perhaps overseas? Fans make for a brilliant but also practical favour, because they’ll not only keep your guests cool – they’re also easy to find in plenty of colours and patterns.
Jam makes the perfect DIY favour, because it’s easy to make in batches and you can cook it up ahead in advance. Instead, consider giving your guests local honey, lemon curd or chutney in miniature jars.
Give your guests something fun to play with! You can get wedding-specific designs, personalised tattoos with your initials and wedding date, or just bright and colourful styles that the kids and grown-ups alike will love. For the photo opportunities alone, this could be a winner!
These practical favours are easy on the budget and will always come in handy. Add a label reading ‘A match made in heaven’ for a fun wedding pun!
If you’re getting married in the holiday season, then you can’t go wrong with a classic candy cane as your wedding favours. For added cuteness, hang them from a Christmas tree and attach your guests’ names for the ultimate festive place name-favour combo.
Another favour that always comes in handy. We’re particular fans of bottle openers in the style of antique keys or ones that can be stamped with your personalised wedding details or new married names.
You read right, we did say chocolate pizza! The Gourmet Chocolate Pizza Company can treat your guests to miniature chocolate pizzas (which come in their own individual boxes – brilliant!), as well as solid chocolate cupcakes, lollipops and macaroons.
One of our favourite wedding favours. Seeds can do more than just provide a long-lasting reminder of your big day – you can get special bee-friendly ones to give a little love back to the environment, too!
Breath-freshening mints are always welcome at the end of the wedding breakfast. You could go for Tic-Tacs, metal tins or perhaps Mint Imperials with a personalised tag reading ‘Mint To Be’ or ‘Commit Mints’.
It might be a little pricey to give all of your guests full-sized candles, but tealight candles are a far more budget-friendly option! If you customise them with your loved ones’ names, they double up as a place name.
If you have a lavender bush in your garden, then this is a super-easy home-made wedding favour. Pop a sprinkling of dried lavender flowers into an organza bag for a sweet-scented favour that your guests can keep in drawers or wardrobes.
Give your guests the chance to win big with a scratch card wedding favour! Give everyone a card and a penny to scratch it with for a bit of fun after the wedding breakfast, and hopefully one of your guests will hit the jackpot…
Love hearts sweets
Everyone loves Love Hearts. And Love Hearts love making wedding favours! Get miniature packets with your names and wedding dates on, or double them up as place names by having your guests’ names printed on a full-sized packet.
With so many deserving charities offering wedding favour options, it’s easier than ever to give back on your big day. Pick from pretty pins to miniature potted plants and seed packets, and simply give a suggested donation to your chosen charity.
This tasty treat is a surprisingly versatile favour. Give your guests pre-made bags of salted, mixed or toffee (our personal favourite!) popcorn wrapped in cellophane, or create a popcorn bar where guests can fill their own bags for a fun new take on the classic ’sweet table’.
Locally-made scented soap is a thoughtful gift that’s sure to go down well. You can pick different flavours for men and women if you want, and you could even make your own soaps on your hen do, making it a fun group activity.
Grown-up lollipops are officially a thing. These days you can get every flavour under the sun, from salted caramel to raspberry prosecco to gin and tonic, and fun details such as edible flowers or glitter!
Greenery is one of the hottest trends in weddings right now, so the recent rise of cactus wedding favours should come as no surprise! You can also pop your guests’ names into the soil on planting sticks for a quirky living table plan.
A little tipple will always go down well with adult guests! Try miniatures of your favourite fizz or spirits, cocktails in a mason jar or a dram of a local drink such as whiskey, limoncello or gin.
Fortune cookies make for a fun, edible favour. Choose cookies with wrappers that match your wedding colours, and customise the messages inside to read everything from your wedding date to your favourite love quotes.
Are you a travel fanatic, or having a destination wedding? Luggage tags make for a fabulous favour. Perhaps you could even stamp the co-ordinates of your wedding venue on them.
This is a delicious (and easy to DIY) winter wedding favour. Pour your favourite drinking cocoa into a plastic piping bag or small mason jar, and top with mini marshmallows. Finish with twine and a personalised label and they’re ready to go…
