Do you want your favours to look great? You don’t have to spend time and money doing DIY only to glue your fingers together until you give up with a big sigh. There are several great ways to give your wedding favours that personalised touch quickly, conveniently, neatly, and not at great cost either! Here are top 10 ways to give your wedding favours that personal touch – with absolutely minimal DIY!
Candy buffet kit
Candy buffets are always a big draw at weddings – many brides have them instead of favours! To dress up your candy bar appropriately, you’ll need some pretty striped candy bags, candy scoops, signs and tags – get this sweet candy buffet kit and you are ready to set up your very own yummy sweetie bar!
Chocolate lollipop hearts
An amazingly simple and budget-friendly option, these yummy milk chocolate lollipop hearts come in packs of 12, in 7 different colours to match your wedding theme. Give one heart to each guest – to give it a personal touch use a personalised sticker! You can tuck them into the napkin ring, put them next to the cutlery, or use them as place cards with guests’ names written on tags and attached with ribbons!
Say it with ribbon
Personalised ribbon in a rainbow of beautiful colours can literally be used for anything at all – chair decorations, adding bows to centrepieces, tying around your favour boxes, hanging on your wishing tree, or attaching place cards! Choose from your perfect colour, and add your names, wedding date, or just a sweet message!
The vintage wedding theme is a real charmer, and it’s only right that the favours match that gorgeous ambiance! Try this DIY favour kit to create a real treat your guests can’t wait to open! Comes with everything you need: 12 paper boxes, ribbons and lace.
Wrap it up
You’ll be truly spoiled for choice with this selection of favour box wraps – and you’ll be wishing you could have more than one theme! Pick your favourite wrap, or even mix and match for a really eclectic look to show off your unique wedding style.
Think outside the box
The most gorgeous option for a bride who doesn’t want favours in a box is a sweet mini lined drawstring pouch – and it suits so many themes too! Garden party, eco chic, elegant white and sage, even beach theme! Attach a personalised tag for that special touch, and fill with sweet treats like jelly beans or chocolate balls.
Peek-a-boo favour boxes
Available in a choice of three colours – gold, white, or silver – these luxury favour boxes are an alternative option to traditional cube boxes, with a clear middle panel to give a peek of what’s inside! Absolutely perfect for personalisation, they can be wrapped with ribbon or decorated with stickers, wraps or tags!
Come to think of it, you can use these stickers on almost everything to do with your wedding – invitations, thank-you cards, napkin rings, place cards, and of course – favours. What a choice of colour and design, and personalisation too!
Charmed, I’m sure
You’d be surprised how many brides are asking for these – can you just imagine how lovely these antique style brass-finish charms would look hanging from a ribbon on your favour boxes? Elegant and charming (of course!), guests will be able to take them home as a little memento of your day too.
Game of tag
A great alternative to stickers, you can use these favour tags to write your own thank-you message, have them personalised with your names and wedding date, or even use them as place cards! So many uses, only one wedding!
