Unravelling Wedding Favours. If you’re tying the knot, you probably already know that you’ve got a whole lot of things to think about and arrange.
With outfits, cakes, flowers, venues, buffets, and of course, the all-important honeymoon to sort out, little touches to keep your guests happy might be the furthest thing from your mind.
But, once you’ve finished planning all the vital elements of your big day, you might want to think about thanking your guests for sharing your special day with you, and that’s where wedding favours come into play.
Wedding favours are a nice way of saying thank you to your guests. Usually left on the tables by each placement, they can serve as a nice conversation starter when people are seated, which is particularly useful for those who you’ve had to plonk next to strangers (or, possibly worse, next to your Great Aunt Mildred!)
Not everyone bothers with favours, and truth be told, most guests wouldn’t notice their absence.
But if you’re going to have them, you may as well choose something that won’t be left on the table at the end of the meal, or end up in the corner of the marquee covered in mud (alongside a broken flip flop and half a cigar).
What Are Typical Wedding Favour Options?
There are some classic options for wedding favours, with some being more popular with recipients than others.
Candles, bottle openers, magnets, stationary, alcoholic miniatures… they’re all good choices, but one of the best options has to be something edible.
First, and perhaps foremost for many, edible gifts are a cheap option. It’s all very well offering your guests scented candles that smell like romance, but they’ll set you back as much as your evening entertainment, and may never be lit.
Not only that, but nobody’s going to leave a sweet treat behind at the end of the night, especially when the munchies set in after all those glasses of champagne!
