Hi I'm stuck on what to do for wedding favours can people send me some links or offer some ideas thanks
Hi Have a look on ebay or pinterest for ideas :)

Swizzels - love heart sweets. You can get them customised from swizzels directly

We made sloe gin.
We are doing limoncello for adults and yellow cake pops for kids for our August wedding. Pinterest is full or great ideas.
We have scratch cards and bought personalised envelopes on esty. Entertainment packs for kids also have got wooden names for table seats so people can take them home too x
We had CRUK forget me not seeds for women and help for heroes pins for the men.
We did wooden name places hotel chocolate chocolates and a photo of me and my husband for each couple xx

Depends on your limit you can get some bottles and fill it with your fave shot for the adults and sweet cones for the children

We're looking at candles from Ebay, and possibly Disney character cards with our names and the date. Xx
We are making a donation to a charity close to our hearts and giving pin badges with a note
I will be putting a couple of bowls/small jar of sweets on each table. With a.mix of chocs love hearts etc. With a message saying thank you for joining us now enjoy sharing these treats (or something like that)
I donated to charity and they send you a little placemat that says. Your bride and groom have chose to donate rather than favours!
We did 6 pence for adults, selfie sticks for teenagers and little boxes for the kids. We also had a sweet table and boxes for the cake to go home. All seemed to go down well and didn't cost huge amount
We are doing home made elderflower cordial!
We had beautiful skeleton key bottle openers with tags hanging on a tree. I think they were about £30 for 50.
Home bargains are doing wedding day candles for 0.59p each - smell lovely too!!
these are my bridesmaids, having watering cans with lights coming out the spout and mine lots of colours country garden/wildflowers with gypsofillia (sorry bout the spelling) in to match
We are thinking of having a cat theme ,so may get cat key rings.
Im buying a big bang theory mould (were having a big bang theory themed wedding), and making my own chocolates which ill put in little bags in my colour scheme xxx

We got flower seeds (forget me nots) from cancer research. They were personalised with our details and our guests loved the charity idea and it costs whatever you want to donate
Having a December wedding so we’re doing Christmas baubles
Wild flower seeds for bees x
We made up ‘hangover repair bags’ out in tea coffee sugar biscuits paracetamol and a berocca tablet and a mint. Something different
We're having charity pins and activity packs for the kids. It's the teenagers I'm struggling with x
Hired a mobile ice cream parlour to come to the wedding venue £450 to serve 100 people so £4.50 a favour and they can pick from 12 flavours of ice cream, 2 hot sauces, 4 cold sauces and 10 toppings. Perfect way to please everyone.
We did Easter eggs as it links to the story of our first date. Bought 80 of them in Tesco on one of their BOGOF deals, spent £50 total I think.
We are doing charity pins.
Don’t do them?
Your already paying for their food, some drinks and a party.
People will leave them behind and not use them.
We got charity pin badges from Macmillan
Occasions By Delilah this is who did ours
MIL is making chutneys, we are having a cheese cake (as in wheels of cheese stacked up, not the dessert) so everyone will have a jar of chutney each either to have with their cheese or to take home
I made personalised wine glass charms for everyone. Bought all I needed from eBay and it was so cheap to do x
We are making Home made sloe gin and small bottles for each adult then small jar of sweets for kids
We're having charity pins (Alzheimer's Society and Pancreatic Cancer - both chose a charity close to our hearts - charity bears for kids) ... but also autumn-themed biscuits by the lady whose making our cake to tie in with our theme. Kids have also got activity boxes/disposable cameras to help keep them entertained throughout the day. Just have fun with your theme/budget ... enjoy x
None. Their a waste of money and most people don’t even take their favours home. Better off doing an ice cream bar or a sweet trolley.
You could consider a charity donation. Lots of charities such as World Animal Protection provide little place cards with a beautiful pin badge explaining that a donation has been made on the guests behalf. The guest gets a lovely memento badge and you get to know that you have done something worthwhile rather than give out sweets etc. which often get left on the table at the end of the night. Win-win!
