A wedding favour is a token of appreciation given to the guests attending the wedding ceremony. The favour can be anything from a small gift, such as a candle or soap, to something large such as an expensive piece of jewellery.
Wedding favours are not always necessary or expected; sometimes they are viewed as tacky or too much work. However, if it is desired that there be some sort of token of appreciation for guests at the wedding, different options should be considered and discussed with all parties involved in order to come up with something that will please everyone and reflect the personality and budget of the bride and groom.
Wedding favours are a way to show appreciation for your guests with a little something that is customized for your wedding, perhaps with your initials or wedding date.
There are many different ideas for wedding favours. The favour doesn’t have to be expensive either. You can use things you already have at home or purchase cheaper items from supermarkets or high street shops. It is nice to have something that has the couple’s initials, colours, or some other symbol of their union.
Wedding favours are often not given much thought until the last minute. However, it is important that you find the perfect favour to go with your wedding theme. Here are some of the most popular types of wedding favours to help you choose what will work best for your event.
