Unique Wedding Favours to Personalize Your Wedding Day
- Love Hearts
In order to keep up with tradition, you can give your guests a sugary treat with personalise love hearts. Instead of the usual sayings you would get on love hearts, these can say ‘Just Married’ or the happy couple’s names, or maybe even ‘Mr’ or ‘Mrs’ on the individual hearts. Love hearts always take you back to being a kid and handing your crush a love heart that says, ‘be mine’ so go all out with the personalization on this one. Your guests are sure to enjoy it.
This one is very different and quite risky, depending on the type of friends you have. So, you can give your guests and literal favour. An I.O.U that they can redeem at any point during your marriage. If you have some lovely friends then they’re favour might be to pick them up on the way to work. However, if you have some more mischievous friends these I.O.U’s could be a big risk. Wedding favours at your own risk.
- Lego Men
Depending on how far you want to go with your wedding favours, Lego men will be a big hit. What people usually do is buy a variety of Lego people, break them up and leave the pieces in a big box for your guests. This gives your guests the opportunity to make a Lego person that resembles them, or just make someone for fun. These are great because they give your guests a chance to make something for themselves and Lego people can be turned into keychains, so it’s a favour that will last.
