10 unusual wedding favours

10 unusual wedding favours

Do you remember when you were a kid and your parents came home from a wedding with sugared almonds and gave them to you as a ‘treat’ and you vowed you would never be so mean to your guests? 

Well that time has come…

It’s your turn to choose wedding favours, and you don’t want anything run of the mill, you want unusual wedding favours, so let’s give you some inspiration.  

1.Mini jar candles 

 Not only will these cute candles in a tin look gorgeous on any table, and match in with any wedding theme you might have, they also double as a special gift to your wedding guests. After the magic of your wedding day has faded away, guests can light their candle at home, and allow the warm scent to remind them of your beautiful day. 

2.Bespoke tins of Lavolio confectionery 

Handmade, luxury confectionary is always the order of the day, and what better favour to give than these Lavolio miniature tins. They make unforgettable wedding favours. Not only are these designer tins the perfect addition to any table set, their contents are also made-to-order especially for you. Lavolios are handmade by Italian artisans using only the finest ingredients, including different nuts, caramelised pieces of fruit and jellies which are all layered in chocolates and spices. Each sweet is unique and takes up to five days to make.

3.Personalised M&Ms 

Personalised My M&M's® are the little things that will make your big day the sweetest one. These chocolate wedding favours will truly surprise your guests. Choose your M&M by colour to match your wedding theme from any of their 15 M&M's® colours, add names, the wedding date or even a picture of the bride and groom. 

4.Embroidered napkins 

Personalised Embroidered Napkins are the gift that keep on giving. They add a special touch to your wedding table decor and can also be used as a favour for your guests to take away as a souvenir of your special day. These personalised napkins will be used in the family home for many years after your big day. 

5.Name pins 

A fun, novelty, name badge made to order with each having a name of the guest and a bespoke design.

6.Wildflower seeds 

One of the best, but cheapest wedding favour ideas. These pretty little packets of wildflower seeds are for you guests to plant at home, and will create a longer lasting memory of your special day than any bag of sugar almonds could.

7.Hangover kits

Everyone will be imbibing on your wedding day so make sure that there are no sore heads the day after by handing out hangover kits. Fill them with essentials like berocca, chocolate and eye masks.

8.A lottery ticket

Not sure what favour to give? How about giving them something fun and affordable that could lead to some big wins (how will they share that jackpot?) Pop the tickets in a romantic ‘lucky in love’ paper holder.

9.Personalised beaded wine glass charms 

These beautiful wine glass charms will sparkle on the table and ensure no one forgets which wineglass is theirs. Choose which beads and spacers you want to match your wedding theme.
