One of my Summer 2016 clients is looking to have beautifully crafted macarons to give to her guests. It got me thinking about the plethora of options available to couples looking to show their appreciation to their guests attending their special day. Over the years I’ve seen so many creative ideas!
Favours will add a personal touch to your big day. If you’re all about the design, a favour can add a stylish addition to your tablescape/theme. Here are some examples to help you choose the favour right for you. By the way, a favour isn’t an essential element, so if you’re on a tight budget you might want to omit this from your plans.
Tip: Get your pals to help you create these mini gifts. Make a night of it with cocktails and nibbles! You can buy crafty bits from local craft stores or eBay.
Tip: Make sure your venue is ok with you bringing in alcohol. Some venues have strict licenses.
Some of the items above won’t be suitable for children. Think about putting together “bags of fun” for any little ones attending your big day. You could include colouring pencils, quiz books, puzzles, toys and sweets.
So many online retailers provide either the elements to make the favour or the complete product. It really depends on what time you have spare and your budget.
If you don’t fancy putting the favours on the tables, you could look at providing a “favour station”, I’ve seen this with sparklers, sweets and cakes and it works well.
The above list is certainly not exhaustive and anything goes – so get your creative hats on!
I hope that provides some help to you!
Have a great week.
