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.

Don’t do them?
Your already paying for their food, some drinks and a party.
People will leave them behind and not use them.

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!
