Wedding favours are a lovely little detail that can have a huge impact on your guest's experience of your big day. Here are 8 impossibly cool ideas that will take your wedding reception to the next level.
DIY heart shaped tea bags
If your guests are feeling loved up what says ‘love’ more at a wedding than a perfect, handmade DIY wedding favour. These are super easy to make and why not mix it up by coordinating your thread colours to your wedding palette or choose a sweet blend of tea that the bride and groom-to-be have picked out personally.
Individual beverage ticket
A roll of individual drink tickets, with each ticket torn off, they can be handed to guests during a receiving line, used to decorate a table or double up and use them as place names. Tickets offer each guest a drink ‘this one is on us’ from the newlyweds and is valid for one beverage. This is a fuss free favour, which of course screams ‘cool’ and is a cost conscious idea too.
Tasteful temporary tattoos
The temporary tattoo has truly been transformed into something extraordinarily tasteful. Trendy designs are a must (think delicate and feminine) and gold tattoos look great against a tan, ideal for summer weddings. The must have for Ibiza and festivals, temporary tattoos have hit the wedding scene and seem to be the next must-have accessory for the most on trend wedding favour yet!
Everyone could use an extra drinks flask or bottle in their life, and there are so many cute styles and designs available right now for both hot or cold refreshments. Whatsmore, you could totally personalise the vessels with an engraving of your initials or wedding monogram so they serve as a real lasting momento of your day.
Love is sweet, so let your guests enjoy a treat! Whether you decide to buy ready-made popcorn or popcorn kernels you can present them both in decorative jars or bags for guests to take home and enjoy. The creative possibilities are endless, from flavour to presentation you can really go to town. We love the idea of inventing quirky flavours like gin & tonic or dying the popcorn to match your chosen colour scheme.
A bowtie bar
One for the boys! A bowtie bar adds bags of style and class to any wedding and its guests. Simply handpick bowtie designs and patterns to suit with your wedding colours, or if you’re feeling adventurous, opt for a pick-n-mix selection of styles. Wrap them individually and display in a wicker basket or hamper. This could work well for other accessories too - we’re thinking pocket squares, tiaras, friendship bracelets, or ballet pumps - the possibilities are endless!
Cute cookie cutters
With such a variety of cookie cutters available to buy you can create thoughtful themes for your guests to take away. For example, a heart for the girls and a star cookie cutter for the boys? There are some really fun ideas too for any younger guests you may have. There are some lovely dinosaur and princess tiara shaped cutters. If you’re struggling for presentation ideas, simply tie them to card with the words ‘Truly cut out for each other’ alongside the name of the bride and groom and the date of the big day.
Add a little chic-ness to your party or celebration and make all the guests happy! Sparkly decorative ornaments work particularly well at winter weddings as they can double up as little Christmas decorations for the tree. In the warmer months, hanging beaded hearts, trinket boxes or photo frames will leave your guests in awe.
