It’s surprising that a wedding favour can cost as little as a £1 especially if you look hard enough and shop around for what you want. Miniature bottles of alcohol can be bought in bulk and can work out at a £1 a head, which if you have 70 guests will work out at just £70!
Sugared almonds are a relatively cheap gift and the nation's favourite wedding favour. This traditional wedding favour dates back to the 13th Century and were originally five sugared almonds all neatly put together in a little bit of lace tied with ribbon to represent health, wealth, happiness, longevity and fertility. Why not put your own sugared almonds together? You can get all the necessary bits and pieces from stores such as Hobbycraft and Confetti stores or visit www.confetti.co.uk. Get the girls around and get a production line going to place the almonds in pretty bags over a glass of wine.
If you have very little time, how about putting a couple of your favourite sweets or chocolates in a pretty favour box or an organza bag? You could even place a jar of sweets on every table as a centre-piece and table name so that guests can identify where they are sat for their wedding breakfast. This is such an inexpensive wedding favour and with relatively no fuss.
A great modern day wedding favour for all contemporary brides is scratch cards or even lottery tickets! Just let your guests know that if they win the jack- pot that you want a cut of the winnings!
How about an individual flower for a wedding favour? Just think of how an individual rose would look at your guests table setting with an elegant ribbon tied around its stem with their name attached to it as an alternative to a place name. If roses are a little too expensive for the amount of guests you have how about having individual gerberas or carnations? As an alternative to an individual flower is a piece of fruit with your guests name tied to it. Pears look stunning at a table setting, especially if they are spray painted red, gold or silver!
