WEDDING FAVOUR
MISTAKES YOU MUST AVOID

The old adage, ďSomething is better than nothingĒ doesnít apply to wedding favours. Giving a meaningless poor quality wedding favour serves no purpose and it will be left at the reception, or thrown in the trash. If your only purpose is to find the cheapest thing available, it is probably best to forget about giving away favours.

DIY wedding favours can save you money but you need to consider the time it will take you to make them. Assembling a large amount of favours is time-consuming! Certain edible favours cannot be prepared in advance so ask yourself if itís worth the risk of having to work all night before your wedding day.

Favours that are meant to be kept and used by your guests for years to come should not be monogrammed. Your mother and mother-in-law would probably find your initials adorable, but your guests might not feel the same way. Personalize your gifts instead by adding your names to the gift bag, box, ribbon and label which can be removed.

Store-bought favours can be practical and well-designed. However they can look pretty commercial and impersonal. Let your creativity and uniqueness shine by removing the standard packaging, and rewrapping it with a finer cello bag or elegant box.

Consider where your edible favours will be kept until you give them away. The consistency of chocolate and cookies can dramatically transform in extreme weather. Imagine having blobs of melted chocolate or soggy cookies for favours!

Jars of dry ingredient mixtures for foods like Chili, cookie mix and others are gaining in popularity. Just be clear about what the food is by including a label with a list of ingredients, allergy warnings and the cooking instructions.

Favours that serve a double function can sometimes create confusion amongst guests. For example, mason drinking jars tagged with the name of each guest are meant to be used during the reception, and then brought home as keepsakes. But be sure to keep your intent clear so that you donít end up with a ton of jars and guests leaving empty-handed!

Nothing is more embarrassing than not having enough favours for your guests. This is why itís smart to have some extra favours on hand to be safe. You never know if additional guests will make it to the celebration, a child loses or breaks their favour or someone ends up taking more than one. In other words...better to be safe than sorry!
