Tying in place setting ideas and wedding favours is easy and can save you money. For example, mini hanging chalkboards can double-up as place settings and a quirky wedding favour. Similarly, personalised drinks glasses or milk bottles can be used at the reception and kept afterwards.

Travel-themed gifts like custom luggage tags, sunglasses or paper fans can be a welcome wedding favour for guests who forgot to pack a few things for your destination wedding. Everyone appreciates a well-chosen souvenir from a great holiday. Your guests will be reminded of the amazing time they had at your wedding every time they travel with this gift in the future.

Sweet Treat Favours
To keep your younger wedding guests happy and quiet during the wedding ceremony, sweets will be a sure-fire hit. These are a great low-cost favour option, as you can buy your favourite treats in bulk and repackage them in decorative paper and ribbon.

If you’re a couple that loves the great outdoors, consider giving your guests a packet of your favourite flower seeds, or a small succulent plant. This will give your guests a permanent and pretty reminder of your nuptials. Seeds can be repackaged in hand-decorated envelopes and you can use them as part of your table decorations, perhaps as an individual place setting for each of your guests.

Personalised stationery favours, like pens, pencils and notebooks can tie-in with your wedding guestbook arrangements. Get a decorated box and ask your guests to write messages and marriage tips on note paper or postcards. After the wedding, you will have a bundle well-wishes to read and re-read in the future.

Your guests are going to want to take pictures of your gorgeous wedding, so providing them with a ‘photogenic’ wedding favour will keep them entertained and get you some great, candid shots. You could create a homemade selfie booth, using a simple backdrop and some carefully selected props for your guests to model with.
For the bridal party, or as favours for your bridal shower guests, beauty products will always be a hit with the ladies. Gifts like personalised lip balms, are a cute and inexpensive wedding favour idea.
