Wedding Favour Ideas That Will Wow Your Guests

*Sponsored Post*

Let’s face it, other than your vows, your guests are one of the most important things about your wedding. Your wonderful friends and family will be descending from multiple corners of the world, often taking time off from work to ensure that they can be with you on your special day. While you and your soon-to-be are the stars of the show, wedding favours are a great way to make your guests feel appreciated for their presence and support.

Sweet Treats: Edible favours are guaranteed to please your wedding guests. You can make these gifts yourself, or go out and buy them, then portion them into small sizes which are easy to package or wrap up and decorate with personalized packaging. Consider mini chocolate bars, cake pops, cookies or candies.

Get Crafty: DIY wedding favours can be inexpensive, and add a personal handmade touch to make your guests feel welcome. Some of our favourite ideas? Homemade jellies or chutneys, hangover care packages, s’mores kits or origami.

Practical Wedding Favours: Wedding favour gifts don’t have to be cute or decorative – they can also be really useful. Are you planning a beach wedding? Consider giving your guests a hand-held fan to keep themselves cool on the big day. Other ideas include personalized water bottles or luggage tags for destination weddings.

On A Shoestring? No Problem! It’s easy to provide meaningful wedding favour gifts, even if you are on a tight budget. Here are some ideas for you:

  • Chocolate coated strawberries served upon arrival
  • Mini buckets filled with popcorn for each table
  • Disposable cameras
  • Hand written thank you notes that double as escort cards

Creative Shoot Featured on WedLuxe.com

Earlier this year we worked with an incredible team of creative professionals to produce a shoot inspired by Pantone’s 2014 Colour of the Year – Radiant Orchid. Pairing a gradient of purples – from soft lavender to deep plum – with tones of peach, tangerine and copper, resulted in an unexpected colour palette that inspired all elements of the shoot. We tinted our model’s hair peach, incorporated peaches, grapes and blackberries in the edible components, and even had a peach kitten on set!

Pops of black gave the design a contemporary edge, and triangles were used as a geometric component that were carried through the stationery, cake, bouquet, food and accessories. Enjoy this selection of our favourite images below, and jump over to WedLuxe.com to check out the full feature!
