does anyone have any ideas on what favours I could give ?
Jars of sweets, minature bottles of drink, magnets, wooden name tags, packets of seeds

We are doing charity pins as my h2b Mum died of cancer afew years ago and Macmillan helped them a lot along with a local hospice so having a selection of pins from both charities and see if the do charity bags of sweets for the kids
We had personalised candles and sweet bags for our candy cart. X
We had mini bottles of jagermister and put little tags on them x
We are doing sparklers for photo ops, and will be making wild flower seed bombs as favours x
We had charity pins and forget me not seeds - google charity wedding favours and chose what's closest to yours and other halves hearts ️
When did practice of giving favours start as it wasnt heard of over 30 yes ago when i got married. Its nice but an unnecessary extra expense
these were our favours we also had keys that were bottle openers and keyrings that were ties for the men we hung them on smaller trees to on each table x
We had a book themed wedding so we bought second hands books as favours :) we ended up picking books specifically for each guest that we thought they would like, it was a lot of fun x
Do you have a theme or a colour that you could tie in with the favours. When I asked the question someone said to me - once you’ve got your colour & theme it’ll come to you and I thought I have it’s orange and the fruit orange etc I thought I can’t give everyone an orange but then it came to me that I could give everyone a chocolate orange which I took out the boxes and had stickers made to stick over the blue terry’s ones, it worked really well for us. Good luck x
We're getting old fashioned sweet tins with a design of our choosing on, filled with pick and mix sweets.
We are doing charity pins in honour of my grandmother and activity bags for the kids.
We had fudge
We did lottery scratch cards and you can get funny little rhymes to go in envelopes like if you get a win it's your round at the bar xx
I am having personalised wine charms.
I’m going to decorate some pebbles and them create a facebook group so guests can hide them and leave a picture, then others can find them and rehide and leave a pic on the group-will be good fun to see how far the rocks can travel!
Scratch cards that also doubled up as name places.
Sloe gin. Making it this weekend for next December
I’m doing personalised champagne flutes, but I make custom glitter glassware so it will be cheap for me as in just paying for materials. I’m doing glitter stems to match my colour scheme and then etching names in the top bit.
We are being very traditional and going for sugared almonds and jelly belly beans
U can get personalised m and ms x
Personalised candle/ tea light
I had little silver heart chocolates
I gave small boxes of fudge. From the boxed gift company.
We had charity pins. I didnt want to waste money on something pointless (sorry my opinion) on stuff that usually just gets discarded. The money was donated to charity and actually meant something
I made these (4 for £3 Matalan) printed labels and filled with Parma violets to fit our lilac theme... then all had shots at the bar later 😂
I'm going old school with sugared almonds
We bought a charity pin for each guest, something in memory of a family member, money for charity, good wedding karma.. win win win x

We’re doing cake pops made by my MIL. Who has learnt for the occasion in order to save us some money (plus they’re really good). But we’re also doing cancer research badges, as between us we have lost 3 grandparents to cancer xxx
Along side other little things such as our favourite jam and glow sticks, we have made cds with songs that mean things to us, songs that are close to our heart we get married a week today and hope they are going to go down well x
I didn't bother doing them. I don't think anyone missed it. Weddings I have been to lots have been left on tables.... put money towards a sweet table instead x
Our theme is yellow and daffodils so we are giving daffodil bulbs in organza bags and sweetie cones for the kids x
We made our favours we bought a tea cups & saucers from charity shops put chocolate hearts from Amazon tea lights & cancer charity pins x50 they were great xx
My husband as he is now wrapped them here they are xx
We didn't do favours as such as to be honest most people leave them or throw them away when they get home. So it can be a waste of money. I brought a basket of flip flops for people to wear and take home, activity packs for the kids and a free drink at the bar. That seemed to work wonders. X
We kept it quite simple and gave everybody a scratch card in an envelope. A couple of people won £100 but I've heard of people winning thousands and buying everyone a drink
We bought h4heroe badges so money went to charity and seeds to plan with some mr&mrs sweets
