4 Brilliant Ways to Have Fun with Wedding Favours


A glorious wedding celebration isn’t only for the blessed couple to indulge in, it’s also a brilliant occasion for guests to relax and bask in the love they’re witnessing. So don’t settle for wedding favours that look attractive but don’t have your personal touch. Give some thoughts and make them memorable gifts for guests to take home.

First of all, set aside time to make these favours with your friends or partner. Plan your schedule, shop for your tools needed to create the favours and take a day or two off from work to prepare the items with your circle of friends.

This quickens the pace and you’ll find yourself enjoying the process more when you complete a task with your closest friends. It’s less hectic than burning your weeknights and weekends creating your favours.

What’s your wedding theme? What are your main colours? It’s essential to make wedding favours an extension of your wedding theme. If you’re going for a nostalgic themed wedding based on your early growing up years, lovely packets or jars of sweets/biscuits will do fine. If you’re planning on sharing your love for afternoon teas and beverages with guests, another alternative to jars of jam are favours that include a flavoured tea bag and a coffee packet to match. Look out for interesting ideas to go with your theme!

How do you want to say ‘Thank you!’ to your guests? Favours are useful tools for you to convey heartfelt messages! Besides inscribing the wedding date and your names on the wedding favour tag, pen down your feelings of appreciation and make that favour even more valuable for guests to bring home. Since couples can be a little more tied up than expected during weddings and can’t seem to spend as much time as they’d like with guests, favours are great tools to express your gratitude.

Some messages you may want to include:

  • “Thanks for coming to our wedding, you’re important to us!”
  • “We’ll be seeing you again, for sure. Thanks for celebrating our wedding with us.”
  • “We’re so happy you came, this is for you.”
  • “We wish we could have spent more time with you! Until then, hope you like our gift from us.”
