Wedding Favour Ideas

The tradition of giving favours to guests at a wedding dates back centuries. Generally you should ensure that everyone receive the same favours to demonstrate that no guest is more or less important than the other. Traditionally each person received 5 items to represent the future happiness, health, fertility, longevity and wealth of the couple.

In recent years couples have moved away from the traditional option of 5 sugared almonds per guest to more original ideas. We have listed a few of these to give you some inspiration.

The traditional favours seem to be being replaced by unusual or fun items and keepsakes for your guests to remember your day by. If your looking for items that have a low carbon footprint try using bowls of sweets on the tables to save on packaging or give packs of seeds that your guests can plant when they get home.

If you really want to make a difference with your wedding favours why not take a look at charity options such as Cancer Research UK - Wedding Favours.
