Unusual Wedding Favour Ideas
Almonds are one of the most traditional wedding favours. In the thirteenth century they were coated in sugar and known as confetti. Nowadays people give all kinds of things as favours from chocolate cakes, to biscuits and even plants. If you are looking for unusual wedding favours for your guests then read on for ideas and inspiration!
Many brides are now choosing to have a candy buffet instead of giving out individual favours. Normally a table is set up at the reception venue and lavishly covered in sweet treats of all kinds whether that is bon-bons, pear drops, liquorice sticks, lolly pops or boiled sweets. There are many different themes you can go for with a candy buffet such as a retro sweets theme (think Wham! Bars, Curley Whirleys and Flying Saucers), a pick n mix theme (think chocolate eggs, Smarties and jelly sweets) or maybe an upmarket buffet (think bon-bons, truffles and fudge). You usually provide bags alongside the candy buffet so that guests can select their favourite sweets and take them home. If you have a lot of children attending your wedding then they will love it!
Favours do not necessarily need to be edible. There is a fashion at the moment for homemade soap favours. Soap is incredibly easy to make and can be set in love heart shapes or as large, bright chunks. The fact that it is homemade will really make it unique and special. Wrap each bar in cellophane and ribbon to make it look extra special. Alternatively you could present it in small boxes or organza bags.
Another non-edible favour, wooden hearts make cute keepsakes for your wedding guests. They are usually strung with ribbon and have the name of the happy couple and the date of the wedding painted or draw on to them. If you want to take it a step further you could double the favours up as place settings by having each guests name put on to one side of the heart and then laid out next to their seat.
This is quite a new trend and one that the retro and vintage bride will love. Tea towels can be used as quirky invites as well as favours. Get a nice message designed and have it printed on to a number of tea towels. You could also have your engagement images printed on to them too. This is a favour that is not only extremely unusual and pretty but really useful too!
