Choosing your wedding favours is one of those things that a lot of couples struggle with and many don’t know where to start when it comes to choosing them. One of the main things to remember when you are looking into wedding favours is to choose something that your wedding guests will want to take home and keep or ‘favour’ for years to come.
It’s also down to personal choice and taste, there isn’t any set criteria or item that you should provide as a wedding favour, so choose something that you both feel your wedding guests will love. You could match them with your wedding theme or you could just think of things that your guests can use after your wedding day.
To help you decide what wedding favours to choose, you could think about the type of wedding favour you’d like. For example, you could choose something that compliments the meal during the wedding breakfast, or it could have a functional purpose for guests or even a charity aspect. Once you have thought about this, it will help you to think about the actual items to choose for your guests.

If you are looking to have a sustainable and ethical wedding, you could make your own wedding favours.
