20 Brilliant Wedding Favours Your Guests Will LOVE

Décor & Flowers, Planning & Advice

Wedding favours are always the source of some debating, some couples love the idea of leaving a little thank you for their guests, while others feel they’ll be forgotten about and the money could be spent elsewhere. If you want to guarantee that nothing is left hanging about on tables at the end of the night, think practical, edible or fun! Food is always a welcome sight whether it’s something guests can take home to enjoy like tea and coffee or chocolate (if it lasts past dinner) or some sweeties to keep them awake in the cab home. Another popular, sentimental idea is to get loved ones involved and treat guests to favours that have been lovingly made by the couple or family members like home made sauces or jams. Going the personal route pays off too – there are some tokens guests will be only too happy to take home and display like a snap from the photo booth or a fun hand-drawn caricature.
