You’ll never guess how much these wedding favours cost

Inspiration - 18.05.16

We’re hoping these budget friendly trends stick around, check out our top five ‘save’ favours so you can afford to ‘splurge’ on that dreamy wedding venue or show-stopping wedding dress.

1. Temporary tattoos

The temporary tattoo has had a revival and is the ‘must do’ for wedding guests this season. Easy to apply and available in tasteful, fun or personalised designs, bowls of the easy-to-apply tattoos sit perfectly in the lounge area of your venue or at the place setting of each guest and can be bought for under £1. Head over to our dedicated Pinterest board for supplier suggestions.

2. Stick on moustache packs

Inject some fun into your wedding with these packs of stick on moustaches. Grab a pack of 6 for a £1 and place them in the Gent’s bathroom or at the bar and these are sure to make a good photo opportunity.

3. Charity pin badges

Charity badges, which feature charity logos, can be given as wedding favours. A thoughtful way of thanking guests for sharing your special day, your cash will go to a good cause, and highlights what is important or close to the bride and groom’s heart. Available in a range of logos and colours, they’re available from £1.

4. Personalised gliders

From as little as 89p each, these fun filled favours can be personalised with your initials to truly symbolise that ‘love is in the air’. Easy to assemble gliders aren’t just for kids, they’re for the big kid in all of us and are a great way to keep guests entertained whilst waiting between courses. We love these and think they’d make a great alternative to “CHEERS!” at the end of the speeches.

5. Personalised candles

Candle wedding favours are a great gift for guests to receive on a bride and groom’s special day. Bought in bulk and available to buy in a variety of colours to suit your wedding scheme, these Ikea Sinnlig scented candles in a glass are great value at 85p each. We love the idea of alternating the colours between male and female guests, for example, grey and white. If you’re feeling really creative why not print your own design onto the glass with printable self-adhesive transparent film paper; there are no limits to what can be achieved with a little imagination.

We hope these ideas will inspire your wedding favour plans, be sure to check out our Pinterest board for more cost saving ideas and let us know your must-have favours this year!
