Setting a budget is important – wedding favours are one of those things that, if you aren’t careful, can cost you hundreds and hundreds of pounds. Decide on how much you want to spend in total, divide that amount by the total number of guests attending your wedding and you have your budget per favour. Please note, most couples choose to only give wedding favours to guests actually attending the wedding breakfast; any attendees at the evening reception will not expect to receive a gift.
Something Borrowed aims to take the stress out of choosing and finding wedding favours. Below is a small selection of some of the possible favours you might like to consider.Favours for children
Why not treat the little ones to a small puzzle or a toy to keep them busy? Or for great photos and lots of laughter, present each of them with their own little magical pot of bubbles.Favours for men
Men’s wedding favours will not be expected but they will definitely be appreciated. If you are buying the ladies a miniature bottle of perfume, why not treat the men to a small bottle of aftershave. Likewise, if the girls are getting wine or liqueurs, give the boys a shot-sized bottle of whisky or brandy.Personalised wedding favour ideas
You can personalise all kinds of wedding favours, from candles and chocolates to engraved wine and shot glasses. If your budget doesn’t run to the engraving, simply tie a card with the guest’s name to the gift with ribbon. This also doubles up as a pretty place setting around the table.
