Whilst it’s certainly not a necessity, you may choose to give your guests wedding favours as a token of your appreciation for coming and celebrating your special day with you. Of course, these don’t have to be anything crazy or extortionate, just something that is thoughtful and represents you and your wedding day – that your guests will actually enjoy.
We have seen many different types of wedding favours at Treseren weddings and always love to see what ideas couples have come up with to signify their day. Here are just some of our favourites for a little inspiration –
If you know your guests enjoy a tipple, then a really special alcohol miniature can make a great wedding favour. We’re big fans of Tinkure Gin which is made in Cornwall and these miniature amber bottles are a stylish touch to the wedding table. Across the border in Salcombe, lovely Treseren couple Michelle and John went one step further and developed and distilled their very own gin especially for their wedding day, with personalised miniature bottles as favours, and a gin and tonic toast to finish their wedding meal.
Of course, even after the gin has been enjoyed, your guests are left with a beautiful bottle as a keepsake. If you choose this wedding favour option, remember to consider a different option for younger wedding guests!
We’re big fans of this wedding favour trend and have seen it in various forms, from packets of seeds, to seed bombs and even menus printed on seed paper! A long-lasting memory that can represent the growth of you as a couple and the love that you share, blooming into beautiful flowers. What’s not to love!
Treseren couple Lauren and Ali’s wedding favours nailed that personal touch, with a small pot of honey made by Ali’s mum’s very own bees, tied with some hessian string complete with a tag that read ‘with love’.
A Bespoke Cocktail
Of course, wedding favours don’t have to be something that your guests take home with them, it can simply be a little something extra on your wedding day. We loved Lisa and Bob’s original idea of a bespoke cocktail before their meal to help get the celebrations under way. Jenna and Steve even ingeniously printed cocktail vouchers to be redeemed in Loveday’s Bar!
A Sweet Treat
Victoria and Oliver had planned a seriously beautiful table setting for their wedding, and so of course their wedding favours would be equally as beautiful! Sarah at The Cornish Cakery baked heart shaped shortbread cookies decorated with white chocolate, gold leaf and dried petals, and they were packaged in delicate envelopes with a wax seal made by Kati at Scalet Paperie.
Nadine and Terry’s guests were not just treated to chocolates in handmade gift boxes, they also received a scratch card each! This created a great talking point at the table, and whilst inexpensive to buy, there is potential to win big – now that really would be a memorable wedding favour.
Whatever favour you choose if you even choose to have one at all, just remember, there are no rules!
