Hi everyone! I'm on an ideas hunt :) As part of our wedding, we need/want to create goody boxes for part of an entertainment element. In theory, we'd have about 10 boxes that would then supply about 6 guests each with whatever we put in them. As such, the boxes would need to be suitable for the majority of people to enjoy - i.e. not particularly feminine or masculine - without breaking the bank. What could we put in them (without spending a huge amount of money) that the majority of people would be likely to enjoy? I know you can't please everyone, but I also read somewhere that there's no point in things like favours that aren't edible because they aren't bothered with... Any ideas of what we could include in the boxes that wouldn't cost too much? Many thanks :)
Photo props, alcohol miniatures, bubbles, party poppers
We had a game box at our wedding. We brought a cheap game of Guess Who and printed off photos of our wedding guests and swapped out the pictures which people really enjoyed and made a nice memento for us. It didn't cost much but was a bit fiddly lol.
Another vote for photo props. People will no doubt have their own phones to take piccies so some props at the table will go down well.
We had little quiz boxes - they went down really well. And were £15 for 12 mini boxes
What about disposable camera’s and then everyone would use them and take their own photo’s and then the guests can either get them processed and keep them for memories or you could ask to keep them, and then get them processed yourself and make a wedding album.
We went to a wedding recently that had a selfie stick for the table. And a picture ideas challenge sheet.
We had pub quiz sheets on each table with questions about myself and hubby’s life, even had a picture round and a trophy for the winning table was very fun!
My sister had a beautiful box with questions all to do with love In there for tables to answer as teams (could have an extra bottle of wine as a prize for the winning table?), some of those fake bottom of faces that you hang on your nose (always fun to try on and photograph) and perhaps a sheet with little activities to do with the couple ie. where you met, what you first thought of them, draw a picture of a memory you have with them etc. All good fun but relatively cheap to do 🙂
We put together little "fortune teller" quizzes (like the old fortune tellers you'd have as a kid, except the outside was decorated with the date, our names, a heart, etc, the next layer was 8 small trivia questions (like where did we meet), and you folded them out to get the answer to the answers.
We also did some wordsearches for each table, and we also put down instructions for a photo hunt and left a disposable camera on each table (like "get a picture of someone laughing, etc).
For my wedding I made puzzle books and included things like "find the guest" for the adults and colouring pages for the kids 😊
These are great ideas, thanks :)
If I wanted to also provide prizes (or something akin to), what would you suggest? Alcohol miniatures and bottles of wine are a possibility but I would like to be able to provide something that isn't alcohol for people who don't drink. Any good suggestions out there, or should I just stick to buying a large amount of chocolate??
We’ve got a child’s party theme (but no kids allowed), so we’re doing party bags - yoyo, bubbles, fortune fish, a baloon and a chocolate.
All the stuff is from eBay so it’s worked out at about £1 per bag.
I also want to do a treasure hunt, but haven’t figured out the best way to do it yet.
That's an inspiring idea... which would work with what we're going for! Thanks
