Are you providing your guests with wedding favours? We’ve come up with 101 wedding favour ideas to inspire you and to guarantee your guests will be delighted – you won’t see any of these left on the table at the end of the night!


A Cocktail in a Jar

Most guests will love finding a delicious cocktail waiting for them as they take their seats for the wedding breakfast. The team at Etched make amazingly tasty drinks served in personalised jars – perfect!



Temporary Tattoos

Once reserved for little boys who wanted a picture of Spiderman on their arm, temporary tattoos are now a fashion thing! These gorgeous gold designs from Bohemian Jewellery Tattoos will go down a storm.



Meringues taste amazing and they look pretty too! We love these beauties from PAUL, available in packs of five and individually.

Treat your guest to a miniature – you could use your favourite and your partner’s favourite tipple, or name your tables after spirits and base the favours on the table names.

Cake Pops

Custom cake pops will add a quirky twist to your wedding tables – if you’re stuck for space, display them on a treat table and encourage guests to help themselves.


Luggage Tags

If you’re headed abroad for your big day or are having a travel theme, give everyone a luggage tag.

Candy Canes

A festive wedding wouldn’t be complete without candy canes!


Hot Chocolate Kit

Warm up your guests on cold winter days by treating them to a hot chocolate kit. You can splash out on luxury hot chocolate on a stick, or if you’re on a budget buy instant sachets and give them out with mini marshmallows!

Bottle Stoppers

Be kind to your guests and ensure their wine never goes off by giving them all personalised bottle stoppers, like these from toxicfox.co.uk.


Lavender Bags

Cute hessian bags of dried flowers, such as lavender, can be used to keep your guests’ drawers or bags smelling fragrant.

Packets of seeds or biodegradable seed papers are a great choice for nature lovers. Add the caption ‘let love grow’ for bonus pun points.


Handmade or not – it depends how creative you are! Chocolate truffles will be well received and can be paired with the post dinner coffee. We love these from Molly Bakes.



Succulents are so on trend now, and are cheap to buy and grow. They look amazing on the tables at a rustic wedding. Why not use them in the centrepieces then invite your guests to take them home at the end of the night?


If your wedding is taking place in a hot country or on a summer’s day, leave out pretty fans for your guests.

Glass Charms

These delicate and pretty favours will make a subtle difference to your wedding table – place them on your guests’ wine glasses to add a personal touch.

Fortune Cookies

Real or fabric! Real fortune cookies are affordable and fun, whilst you can personalise fabric ones with your own forecasts. We like ‘You will buy the bride and groom a drink’.

Love Hearts

They’re a classic and with good reason! The retro sweets are the epitome of sweet romance and you can personalise the labels too!


Chocolate Props

If you’ve got a photo booth, give your guests a hint of what’s to come by giving out chocolate moustaches and lips.

Charity Donation

Of course, you choice of wedding favour can have a deeper meaning. Donate to a charity that is close to your hearts. Some charities will print off place cards, like the one below from the Dogs Trust, and give pins or bracelets in return.


A Fresh Flower

Leave a flower for each guest at their place setting – it’s simple but effective!



A box of matches is an old school wedding favour, but it’s quite useful. It also gives you the opportunity for some excellent puns about being a ‘perfect match’ or a ‘match made in heaven’.


Personalise keyrings with photos, messages or simply your names and wedding date.


Whether it is bags of your favourite brew or super cute tea in a tube!
