Wedding favours are one part of the wedding planning that seem a little unnecessary. On one hand, they are a sweet little gesture to give thanks to your guest but when you combine the cost per person, they can end up as an expensive extra. At Brides of Bury we have compiled a list of 5 fun yet budget-friendly wedding favours to gift your guests on the big day. Read on for some great some money saving tips…
1. A Generous Charity Donation
Number one on our list has to be our own wedding favours. We may be biased but we think these placeholders with Bury Hospice pin are the perfect wedding favour. All we ask is for a small donation to Bury Hospice for each guest. Not only do you guests love them, you are also donating to a great cause, and it doesn’t break the bank. Enquire about them here.
2. Ferrero Rochers
Almost everyone I know loves chocolate! I found images of these on Instagram and thought it was a great idea. Simply pop the guest’s name on a cocktail stick and stick into the Ferrero Rocher. You now have a budget-friendly wedding favour which doubles up as the perfect place card.
3. Lottery Tickets or Scratch Cards
Every Christmas dinner my mum gets us a scratch card and we all cross our fingers and scratch them with a penny. Most years someone wins something. Why don’t you package them up nicely in a decorated envelope with their name on? You could even provide the lucky penny!
4. Refreshing Mints
We came across this idea in a blog. Perfect for freshening up after the wedding meal, mints are a great budget-friendly wedding favour option. Buy them in bulk online or multipacks from discount stores and place them in little bags to make them personal.
5. A Simple and Sweet Thank You
Can’t decide which favour you want? How about a little tag or card that simply says thank you? You could DIY on luggage tags or print these out at home yourself.
