DIY Wedding Favours Ideas
Friends and relatives from near and far made it to your wedding to especiall
y share and celebrate the joyous occasion with both of you and your families. Shouldn’t you reciprocate with a token of appreciation? The question is what wedding favours to give. We had many brainstorming sessions before deciding on our wedding favours. We wanted one that not only ties in with our theme but also is a remembrance of our wedding. In the end we opted for potpourri because the floral scent and colourful petals fitted our garden theme perfectly.
I part DIY my wedding favours. I bought the potpourri and packed it into organza pouches decorated with tiny roses on the front. I printed our names, wedding date and a thank you note onto a small card which was then threaded with a gold string to the potpourri pouches. In total, I spend less than RM500 for 700 wedding favours.
With a little creativity, you can have great wedding favours without spending much. If you have some creative ideas and would like to personalized a gift for your guests, what better time to do it than now! Show your appreciation with a personal touch. If you like to bake, you can bake some cookies, cup cakes or even brownies and packed them in small decorated plastic bags, boxes or tins. You can even make kaya, preserves and chutneys, which can all be presented in miniature jars with your very own label.
For the music lover, you can compile a list of love songs that you played during your wedding onto a CD for each of your guests to take home to remind them of the wonderful evening.
1, 2, 3 say cheeze! Photographs are a great memento of the special day. This is an excellent idea for a wedding favour. Most guests will appreciate a copy of the photos they take with the bride and bridegroom. Compile photographs of the day’s event and all the candid moments you share with your love ones, relatives and friends. Place them onto a CD for each guest. They will love you for the beautiful memories.
Whatever you decide to give as favours, the most important thing to make sure (other than there being enough to go around) is that your favours are meaningful. It is a piece of memory for your guests to remember you by.
