Organizing a wedding can be nightmarish but when it comes to favours, they shouldn’t cause that much stress. That’s why I went and sourced the most popular wedding favour ideas for you to use for your big day. The best part? They won’t break the bank. Whether you want some food ideas, personalised wedding favours or even little plants, we’ve got you covered in this list.
20 Wonderful Wedding Favour Ideas That’ll Save You So Much Money
Wedding Favour Ideas; Personalised Packaging, Gift Tags and Stickers:
These little personalised gift tags work out at less than 2p per tag! Prefer to DIY your wedding favours? Having cheap tags like this can really make a lasting impression with your guests.
Custom shot glasses are a great way to give away something incredibly memorable for less than 60p per glass. You don’t have to settle for this shape of the shot glass, there are lots available to choose from and they’re all incredibly reasonably priced.
I’m rather obsessed with these personalised wedding chair signs that were featured in this post with 100 wedding favours under £1.
If you’ve already ordered your paper bags, these personalised stickers would work just as well.
If you really want to impress the pants off your guests, personalised wine stoppers are incredibly popular. They’re also a marvellous way to mark the occasion. My aunt has one from a cousin’s wedding that she still uses 20 years later.
Food Wedding Favour Ideas:
Drink and be merry
If some of your guests happen to suffer from chronic illness or they’re a tee-totaller *ahem to both*, getting actual tea like this is amazing. It’s useful, beautifully presented and it’s a best seller. So we know it’s incredibly popular!
Depending on your heritage, tea or coffee is going to be more popular within certain groups of your friends and family. You could easily split the difference and buy half of your guest’s tea and a half with these personalised bags of coffee. If they don’t like what they have, they can always swap.
Let Them Eat Everything
These Mint To Be wedding favour ideas are quite possibly some of my fave! If you have 300 guests, these work out just over 32p per favour. Not bad huh?
I would love to wake up to a wall of doughnuts every single morning. This doughnut wall is an excellent way to offer food for your guests when they arrive at the reception. Generally, the time between the marriage and the reception is loooong. The professional photographer will whisk you away, so feeding the masses early is advised.
You can easily make 100 of these pretty cheaply. Amazon is a great place to source jars for making wedding favours. All you need now are sugared almonds, gift tags, twine, shearing scissors (to prevent the fabric fraying) and fabric scraps if you’re going the DIY route.
Alternatively, some Etsy sellers have done the hard work for you;
These tubes are so luxurious and those personalised tags are absolutely stunning. Even if you were going the DIY route, with all of the supplies to make something like this, they’re a great price.
Sweets never fail, with grown-ups and children alike. It’s easy to share sweets in style!
Wedding Favours That Can Be Used After The Big Day:
These perspex names are so impressive! They’re also a fab idea to use as a wedding favour because they can be used as personalised coasters after the event. At approx £1.25 each, they’re a bit of a bargain and you could easily limit these favours for the top table.
Personalised bars of soap are a wedding favour I would love to receive. They’re far more useful than that old classic; sugared almonds.
Depending on the time of year your wedding is, personalised drink coozies could be very useful, especially in hot weather.
Potted succulents are an adorable little favour to offer on your wedding day. I would be thrilled to receive all of these. Grab a little scrap ribbon and tie it around the pot with a personalised tag. Boom. Done and done.
Sowing the seeds of love is a rather romantic idea, so of course, it’s perfect for a wedding. It’s a very touching symbol to represent your happy day.
These are BOTTLE OPENERS!!!! How cool are these?! I don’t even drink and I want one of each. If you go for these bad boys as your wedding favours, you get free tags. Check out all of the information here.
Personalised candles are incredibly popular because they provide a deep and caring connection to your guests. The majority of people will be incredibly grateful for the thought that has gone into your wedding favour ideas!
What wedding favour ideas are you drawn to the most?
If I were hosting a wedding reception, I think I would offer succulents because I love them. They symbolise hope, growth, care and tenderness which is the perfect symbol for your wedding day.
