Wacky Wedding Favours { Give a Good Gift! }

Wedding favours are one of those elements that can really make a guest’s day! Especially when it comes to wedding season, it’s important to remember that your guests have been to many weddings over the past couple of months – so let’s try to be a little original, and steer clear of all the “been there, done that, got the favour” ideas.

Here are a couple of tips for choosing favours that are unique and true to your theme:

  • Think practically – you want to give your guests favours that they’d actually want to take home and use, eat or keep.
  • Consider your theme and think of interesting favours that tie in with it – for instance if you’re having a beach wedding, why not give your guests flip flops?
  • Be punny and funny! Nothing is more enjoyable than a favour that’s tongue-in-cheek or offers a good bit of word play.
  • Think on-the-day! What can you give your guests that they’ll need or want to use on your wedding day? Perhaps a paper fan for the heat, or a little bottle of sunscreen will do the trick.
  • If you have a running inside joke in your family and friend circle, use that as inspiration for your favours – perhaps you’re known as the family who only drinks sherry, or maybe everyone knows how much you love speckled eggs?
  • You can’t go wrong with edibles – especially if the food is only going to be served later on in the reception.
  • If you want to go the handmade or memento route, make sure it still ticks the “practicality” box – it might be special to you, but it would be sad if the gift ended up collecting dust on the shelf.
