  How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Favour  

Wedding favours is a timeless tradition of giving a small gift to your guests to thank them for having been part of your big day. A favour can be as simple as a treat for your guests to enjoy or a unique keepsake to cherish the memory of the venue. A well thought, creative favour needs to be planned ahead of time and be worthy of keeping. There is no point on having a favour that your guests will leave behind or simply toss in the trash. So while researching different ideas, ask yourself before deciding on a particular one if it is something you would like to receive.

A meaningful favour can be a wonderful way to express your personalities as a couple, to share on how you met, your heritage, or even a special hobby. Leave no rock unturned, be original and evaluate each possibility carefully. And just like your flower bouquets and decorations, the favour should be in harmony with the overall theme and colours of your venue.

Keep in mind that guests appreciate favours that are either practical or edible. And edible favours are by far the most preferred gift and are always well received by guests.

Depending of the cost and number of favours you need, you could allocate one favour per couple or family, and single guests. You may opt for a different favour for each gender, and children; or keep it simple and choose one that will please everyone. Plan to have extra favours on hand for last minute guests, or if by accident, some of them managed to take more than one. You may also want to give favours to those unable to attend.

Favours don't have to be expensive. If working on a low budget, look at DIY alternatives that can be assembled ahead of time without the risk of spoiling. If making your own edible favours, make sure your recipe is fool proof, and not susceptible to temperature fluctuations.

Very trendy, add excitement to your reception venue with a candy buffet for your wedding favours. Provide small personalised bags or boxes for guests to bring their favourites home.

For keepsake style favours, resist the temptation of having your initials monogrammed on them. To add a wow factor, personalize instead with your names and date the gift bags, boxes, ribbons, and tags. Turn a simple item into an impressive favour by wrapping it in quality paper or cello, adding a gorgeous bow, stylish ornament, and a thank you note or tag.

There are no rules on how to distribute favours to the guests. They can be set on dinner tables, or given personally to each guest at the end of the reception. They can be part of the overall decor, neatly and artfully set on a beautifully decorated table, or nestled in an elegant basket to create a visual impact. Decide in advance the exact location your intent the favours to be set and when you will be giving them away.
