hi girls getting married on 30th dec and just wondering what other xmas brides are doing for wedding favours..was originally going to have none but now thinking of doing one per couple. i was at a wedding 2 years ago and the favour they had was a christmas decoration - a star with personalised ribbon was lovely but not sure where to get these on a budget. any ideas appreciated!! :wv

I think the candy cane is a really good idea. Dont know if its any use but I had to buy pink candy canes a few months ago, got them from www.chocolatebuttons.co.uk. Quality candy canes are not the cheepest of sweet but thy are a substancial. The ones that were in the link were adorable but I think 6cm (2.5inches) may be a bit to small to put individully on each table (candy canes are usually about 16ish cm, 6 inches) but they would be lovely left in a bowl for guests to take.

Lovely idea and very practical too. I noticed last week that Woodies have a range of silver tree decorations that are IDENTICAL to the Newbridge ones (I would know, because I have millions of them!), yet they are about half the price. You should check them out, they will be on a rotating stand. Seeing as it's one between two the price should suit you ok. They are all the same designs as the Newbridge ones anyway, so if you know their collection, you would have a fair idea of them. They have a Church one, which could be nice?

I'm having snowflake Christmas decorations in a blue box and putting them in white and silver snowflake organza bags. They cost about €220 for 288 pieces. An American website can't find the link (they're described as bookmarks)

I'm putting these in DIY crackers which double as a place setting or they would be fab on their own. http://www.thorntons.co.uk/p/christmas_ ... /1647.html There's also a Xmas pud version which I think are nicer but didn't fit in my cracker ;-( Also they're on 3 for 2 at the minute with a free box of chocs worth £10 on any order over £20 (code WA18)

I'm doing christmas baubles. Sticking to golds/bronzes to tie in with my colour scheme. 50 baubles in Penneys is about 5 euros. Then I got some personalised ribbon in my BM colours in E.Bay, ordered 200. Was £5. Buy a gold glitter pen to write the names on each ball. They will double up as a place setting. Total cost..... Baubles: 15 euros Ribbons: 7 euros Glitter Pen: 5 euros Total: 27 euros for 150 favours/place settings.
