What wedding favours are people having? I want something that is cheaper and doesn’t include sweets. Thankyou in advance
Charity donations! Cancer research send you a little pin you can have on the table for guests and it's more meaningful!
This with a little candle
Make a donation on everyone's behalf to a charity that would mean something to you and your partner. You can then put a wee card at everyone's table saying a donation has been made in their behalf
I’ve made wine glass charms
Seeds for bees x
Seeds are always good
We made donations to cancer research and also got their ‘forget me not’ seeds - particularly close to our hearts. X
I'm doing a mini bath bomb each for ladies and mini after shave for men I love bath bombs and my partner loves after shave xx
Umbrellas (outside wedding in Autumn!!)
At the minute quality save has little jar ‘wedding day’ candles for 59p- they look really nice and lots of people burn candles these days!
We had hand decorated candles xx
Magnets and keyring which is also doubling as the place setting.
I got cheap drinking glasses from Wilko (4 for £1) and decorated them with people's names using glass pens. They used them at the reception so no-one lost their drink, and then took them home!
These were our favours. They are from Amazon and they doubled as place settings too!
We are having these but have made my own at a cost of 65p each for the amount of guests

We’re going little glass tubes of seeds with stickers on saying “let love grow”
Most of it will be a waste of money.. nobody keeps that stuff.. even seeds.. most will just get thrown away after the wedding... at least poeple will probably eat sweets. people only have so much room in their lives to keep things.
We did wedding guest survival kits and then perfume favours
Im having a Gin station and guests can help themselves to a drink, ive been to so many wedding and all the favours as lovely as they were end up in the bottom of a draw only one that gets used is a key ring bottle opener
We have empty key rings that people can take to the photo booth and get a photo to put in it. Xx
