First, here’s what you need to know about wedding favours.

homemade wedding favours

What are Wedding Favours?

Wedding favours are small gifts given by the couple to their guests as a token of gratitude for attending. For centuries sugared almonds were given as a thank you, but they’ve fallen out of favour. Traditionally, you’ll leave your little gift on the place setting for each person at their table.

What Do You Give as Wedding Favours?

It’s all about small gifts: think a little candle, scented soap, packet of seeds or a bottle opener. Edible ones, like chocolate truffles, pick n’ mix sweets, or biscuits, go down a treat; as do little bottles of alcohol. Try to link them in with your theme or a passion for you as a couple. If you’re having a rustic theme, how about little jars of jam, shot glasses, tea bags or a succulent? If you’re having a vintage theme, you could have popcorn in old-school striped boxes, polaroid snaps, tea cup, or cute milk bottles filled with a personalised cocktails.
