When deciding on what favours to giveaway, consider the following :

  • Be unique and make a statement.
  • Stick to budget.
  • Order over-runs in case your guest list balloons at the last minute.
  • Each guest should receive his or her own favour.
  • A little note of thanks attached to the favour is a thoughtful gesture.

Some trends :

  • Practicality is an important consideration as couples choose favours that their guests would find useful.
  • Support for local artisans and entrepreneurs is another meaningful aspiration of soon-to-be-weds.
  • Packaging that ties in with the overall wedding theme and table setting.
