WEDDING FAVOUR
MISTAKES YOU MUST AVOID

The old adage, “Something is better than nothing” doesn’t apply to wedding favours. Giving a meaningless poor quality wedding favour serves no purpose and it will simply 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 do them. Assembling a large amount of favours is time-consuming. Certain edible favours cannot be prepared in advance so ask yourself if it worth the risk of having to work all night before the wedding day.

Favours that are meant to be showcased in the house of your guests should not be monogrammed. Your mom will probably find your initials adorable, but your guests may not feel the same way. Personalize your gift instead by adding your names the gift bag, box, ribbon and label.

A store-bought favour may look quite impersonal, and too commercial. Turn it into an elegant gift simply by removing the manufacture packaging, 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 a blob of melted chocolate, or soggy cookie at each seating.

Food ingredient mixture favours such as spices, bean soup, cocoa, and cookie mix, are gaining in popularity. Be clear about what the favour is all about by including a label with a listing of ingredients for allergies, and the preparation and cooking instructions.

Favours that serve a double function can something 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 brought home for keepsake. Make sure you let your guests know to bring them home after so that you don’t end up with a load of jars.

Nothing is more embarrassing then not having enough favours for everyone. Have on hand extra favours just in case. You never know, a few guests may take (inadvertently) more than one, a few may break during transportation, or additional guests may decide to show up.
