Making your own Wedding Favours
If you want your wedding to be as memorable and unique as possible, why not make your own wedding favours? This is your chance to get creative and is the perfect way to thank your guests for attending. Anyone can order gifts online or pop into a shop, but handmade treats show that you’ve thought carefully about what to give to your loved ones.
So with this in mind, here are seven DIY wedding favour ideas for inspiration:
Getting married in winter? Then wouldn’t it be nice to warm things up with a hot chocolate mix? This can be presented in a lovely glass jar and decorated with pretty ribbon and a handmade label with a little thank you note.
There’s a sweet treat for every season, with little pots or jars of lemon curd being ideal for an outdoors wedding in summer. It’s easy to make, and you can decorate the container with a printed label and a yellow ribbon.
Take your guests back to their childhood with little brown bags of retro sweets sealed beautifully with a thank you label. This can include anything from strawberry laces and sherbet lemons to Black Jacks and mini foam bananas. The kids will love this too.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to be overly artistic to make a stunning wedding keepsake. Simply cut out small red/pink hearts. Make a heart out of these hearts and glue them to a quality piece of paper. Write a small note in the corner saying something like ‘we heart you’ and then frame it. Repeat for all special guests.
Another wonderful thing you can do is to create a wedding essentials kit for each guest. If you’re tying the knot in summer, for example, this could include a pretty fan, a mini bottle of sun cream, a jazzy cocktail straw and more. Having a winter wedding? Pop in a shawl or mittens to keep guests cosy.
This one is simple yet effective. Get your hands on some eco-friendly seed packets and fill them with seeds of your choice. Write or print ‘let love grow’ on the front and attach an instruction label to each one. This will help your guests to remember your big day for many months and years to come.
When it comes to wedding decorations, you could even get hold of some seeded heart paper gift tags. These could then be hung from each table centrepiece for added interest.
Don’t be afraid to personalise your wedding favours to match the style of your wedding. If you’re tying the knot on a campsite, wooded area or are having a relaxed BBQ-style theme, then marshmallows would be perfect. Pop some big fluffy marshmallows into a gift box with a mini packet of digestives and a chocolate bar, and you’ve created a simple yet effective gift.
