When choosing your wedding favours, keep in mind that they can double up as decorations if they tie in with your wedding theme! Pick presents for your guests that not only reflect you both as a couple but also look stylish on your tables, and you’ll be onto a winner! If you’re having an autumn wedding, then The Wedding of My Dreams have some gorgeous wedding favour ideas for you…
For a rustic theme wedding, presenting your wedding favours in a small hessian bags will look lovely on your wedding tables, especially if you are using burlap or hessian elsewhere throughout your wedding décor. Just add a small gift of your choice to the bags!
Giving guests a pack of seeds to plant in memory of your wedding is a lovely idea. The seeds can be placed in a small envelope on each guests place setting with a label saying ‘let the love grow’. Guest can take home the seeds and watch them grow as a pretty reminder of your wedding day.
Along similar lines to the packet of seeds, you could give each guest a small plant, let them take it home and look after it. Succulents work well for autumn weddings and are easy to look after. For a Christmas spin on this you could give each guest a small fir tree to plant.
Making your own favours is a lovely touch, if you have the time – or you have a willing family member! For a autumn country wedding you could give small jars of home-made jam or chutney and get personal with the labels too.
You can’t go wrong with giving chocolates as wedding favours! If you have a favourite sweet treat, you could choose that, but we also love these cute chocolates that say ‘Love Is Sweet’ on the front.
If you are having a traditional English wedding or English country garden theme continue the idea through to your wedding favours. Give each guest an English tea bag presented in a lovely envelope.
For a slightly more substantial gift, let your name card holders double up as your favours. Guests can take these home and use them on their desk to hold notes or a small photo of them with you at your wedding day. We especially love these bud vase card holders that can hold a small flower. They’ll look fab on your tables and make cute gifts!
Another great option is to give the money you would have spent on favours to a charity of your choice. Put a little note on each guest’s place setting telling them you have donated money instead of a favour. This is a lovely touch, especially if there is a charity that’s particularly close to your families’ hearts.
