Well Chosen Favours

Dec 01, 2019

As a guest, it is always refreshing when one receives a well thought of wedding favour instead of the run-of-the-mill piece of cake or chocolate provided for by hotels’ wedding packages. A well chosen token of thanks attached with a note of appreciation speaks volumes more about the couple’s sincerity and gratitude towards their wedding guests.

Your selected favour could :

  • Reflect your interests and tastes or perhaps your wedding theme.
  • Be relatively inexpensive or extravagant depending on your budget. The idiom ‘it is the thought that counts’ holds true though.
  • Be ordered from a custom supplier or made on your own. The latter will be much appreciated if you have the talent and skill required.

Some tips :

  • It will be cheaper to buy favours in bulk.
  • If you decide to give an expensive favour, perhaps just allocate one per couple.
  • Pretty packaging adds value to the favour.
  • Personalise by tying on a tag with a thank-you note or consider using monogram stickers.
