Unforgettable Wedding Favour Ideas Your Guests Will Love

We've all been there, you're at the most gorgeous wedding, you've had an amazing time, it gets to the end of the night and you're slightly worse for wear, and who actually remembers to take the favour off the table, unless its absolutely incredible, or you've already eaten or drunk it!

You absolutely don't have to have favours at your wedding - we didn't at ours, but we did have a massive dessert table, and people were more than welcome to fill their pockets with treats for the journey home - and I know that some of them did! A lovely squidgy strawberry and white chocolate blondie is the perfect drunk journey home snack it seems!

So if you do decide to do favours, here's a small selection of absolutely brilliant wedding ideas that are definitely worth the money!

1. Edible favours - this would, of course, be my number one - but when you've had three glasses of Prosecco and dinner isn't for another hour or so, you can pretty much guarantee that they're going to be eaten straight away!

Think little biscuits personalised with your guests names (then you don't need to pay someone to write placecards!), little pots of jelly beans or smarties, personalised packets of Love Heart sweets, or my favourite - Tony's Chocolonely do personalised bars with no minimum order quantity, and they make seriously delicious (and ethical)


2. Drinks tokens - give each of your guests a token or two for a free drink at the bar - everyone loves a free drink and its something they'll definitely use!

3. Something for the party - why not give your guests something to enhance your party when the sun goes down? I'm thinking glowsticks, bubbles, heart sunglasses, temporary tattoos, sparklers for your exit - you name it, it'll make your photos look amazing!

4. Personal notes - this one is a bit more time consuming, but definitely worth it!

Write your guests an individual personal note each - reminiscing on some of your favourite memories with them or telling them how much it means to you that they're there on your wedding day. Another lovely personal way of doing favours like this would be little printed photos of you with each of your guests in a polaroid style - you know they'd have pride of place on the fridge when they get home!

5. Hangover kits - these are incredibly useful, as I'm sure you can tell, and you can put whatever you want in them - a couple of paracetamol, a bottle of water, some mints, a couple of tea bags or a coffee sachet, some face wipes, an eye mask, you get the idea, and I can guarantee your guests will be grateful for them!

Give me a shout if you'd like to chat more about edible favours, or anything cake or treat related - and keep an eye out for my next blog in a couple of weeks!

Happy wedding planning!
