Personalised matches, Chocolate bars, CD’S and flip flops. They may sounds like a mish mash of unrelated items but surprisingly they do all share a common theme – Wedding favours.
Weddings should be one of the best days of your life; a time when you are surrounded by family and friends and that special person that you are going to spend the rest of your life with. However, anyone who has ever planned a wedding either as a bride or groom or been involved with the process through a friend or family member will know that it can be an extremely stressful time.
Let’s be real there’s no getting away from it – planning a wedding is stressful, as there is just so much to organise and the ‘to do’ list can seem positively overwhelming! However, one of the areas that normally leads people to hit the bottle on the lead up to the big day are the wedding favours. It may not sound like a big deal, but those little babies are really important as you want your wedding to be unforgettable for your guests.
Gone are the days when they meant colourful sugar coated almonds wrapped in matching mesh fabric and tied with an awkwardly knotted ribbon. The world of wedding favours has moved on to a whole new dimension and is now more creative and fun than ever. If you want some great gifts that won’t break the bank check out our ideas below.
Choc- a- wokka- wow- wow
Let’s face it weddings can be an awkward time for your guests and creative favours can be a great way for people to break the ice. Get their endorphins flowing and help ease any tension with a personalised wedding chocolate bar. Allow them to get lost in a superb world of chocolaty goodness and relax.
Bring on the dancing shoes
Encourage them to shake a leg or two on the dance floor by providing them with flip-flops. Believe us, it’s not only the ladies that will thank you for this after a good few hours in “posh shoes.” Leave them on their chairs with a little note and watch that dance floor fill up!
Get those sparks going
Matches always come in handy, so why not personalise your own box and give them to your guests as a thank you.
It’s a kid’s world
Finally don’t forget the children. It’s a long old day for them and by the time they get to the reception they can often be bored, fed-up and tired. Which when translated means ready to cause trouble! Keep them entertained with their own special favours. Grab a small note pad and some crayons and tie them in a bundle with a few sweets. Not only will this keep them quite but help to keep you sane!
