Wedding favours are your little thank you gifts to each of your guests, and they also add colour and interest to your reception tables. The traditional five sugared almonds symbolised good luck, but the more contemporary iced cookies and cupcakes are a delicious and eye-catching addition to your wedding day.
Home-made wedding favours are unique and personal little gifts for your guests. Make jams or chutneys, cupcakes or cookies, or even your own chocolates. How you present these home made treats to make them look extra special will add to your reception table decor.
Adding a label or sticker to your favours with a special message, your guest’s name or your wedding details makes it a personalised gift and a keepsake to treasure long after the big day.
Add a colourful luggage style label to a drawstring bag with a pretty ribbon or simply add a sticker to a glass jar or tin container that can be taken home and used again.

If you’re looking for something a little unusual that will raise a smile then novelty favours are for you. From a simple chocolate love heart lolly in a tiny flower pot keepsake to the mini French style pitchers that can be used to serve bread to the fun gumball machine and slot machine ideas, there’s something for every taste.
