Favours in South Africa
Guests are known to travel from far and wide to attend a wedding and there's nothing like a hand-picked wedding favour to convey your sincerest thanks and appreciation. This section introduces you to a wide spectrum of South African wedding favour suppliers located across the country.
In order for a wedding favour to go down well with your guest, it needs to check five very important boxes. Firstly, it has to be something that i's useful and practical, that won't end up gathering dust in the back of a cupboard. Secondly, make sure it's something that guests would actually want to keep, as this will ensure that the wedding favours aren't left behind on the tables to go to waste. cont...
Next, it has to be unique – a little souvenir that encapsulates the spirit of your wedding day as well as your personalities as a couple. The fourth rule states that it should be out of the ordinary, meaning a gift that you can't just buy off the grocery store shelf. Lastly, it's of vital importance that your guest favour isn't part of a set, as there's nothing more frustrating than receiving an odd teacup or wine glass that can't be put to good use.
Often wedding favours get left behind by accident – perhaps a glass of wine too many or the haste of getting a sleepy toddler home. So instead of placing guest favours on the tables, consider having an attendant stationed at the door, handing out favours as guests depart. Alternatively, opt for edible treats like creamy fudge, chocolates or old fashioned biscuits, as these are generally gobbled up early in the hours of the reception.
When choosing your guest favours it's always important to first consider what i's available out there and whether the supplier has enough of the particular item in stock. If you're on a tight budget, consider cutting down to one stylish gift per couple, as settling for cheap knick-knacks can come across as kitsch and compromise the style of your wedding rather than complement it.
With all this in mind, take your time to browse our directory for a supplier who will provide exceptional wedding favours for your big day. ...less
