What are Wedding Favours?
Wedding favours are a tradition that started many years ago involving a simple sugar cube. Which at the time was a pretty substantial purchase. As the cost of sugar started to decrease, couples turned to sugared almonds which also were a simple gift. The meaning of giving wedding favours was to bring luck to the couple getting married and the guests that attended the wedding. Wedding favour gifts have changed into many different things over the past few decades. The focus on the present day is a personalised gift that can be kept as a memento to the recipient.
What are unique wedding favours?
As mentioned before wedding favours now include a personalised element to the gift. This is a trend that has been favoured by many brides and grooms. Unique wedding favours can be your favourite drink, your favourite flower or even a photo of sentimental value. These options all tie into the big day and can represent you as a couple.
What message should I include?
The simplest ideas can sometimes be the best and these could be your new joint name, the date of your marriage or simply Mr & Mrs. Some couples prefer to add a thank you to the guests attending but another quirky wedding favour idea would be using the gift as the place name for your guests.
What are popular wedding favours?
Some of the most popular wedding favours in the present day are of the edible kind. These gifts seem to go down a treat with guests and the happy couple. Although then becomes the difficult task of choosing what edible treat you and your guests would enjoy. Personalised sweets are a lovely little memento the guests can nibble on before the wedding dinner. How about a drink? This could be something the guests enjoy weeks or even months down the line. A little dram of whisky or a measure of vodka will bring the memories flowing back.
Eco-friendly wedding favours
With more of us starting to think about our impact on our environment a way to contribute to this would be through your wedding favours. Choosing reusable, recyclable or useful gifts can have an impact and improve the quality of your gift. There have been many ideas that have been generated in recent years to help make your decision that much easier. Going back to personalising your wedding and more so on the favourite flower idea, is to give your guests personalised seed packets of your favourite flowers or plants. Or even go one step further and pick a flower that is bee friendly or encourages wildlife, this helps to rebuild eco-systems. Our refillable bottles can be a great way to include an edible gift. That most certainly the guests will enjoy but further reinforce the use of plastic free gifts. These tasty treats can include many different flavours and most importantly the personalised aspect of your gift with a lovely handwritten message.
