Wedding favours - We aren't having a sit down meal, so no table plans etc. Guestlist of about 140 so was wondering what people would suggest for favours if any? Thanks
Hi we are not doing favours we are having a sweet cart instead :)
Hello, you could get bubbles or do small bags with sweets in? There are also candles that are personlised. If you aren't doing a table bag you need something that will suit everyone that can be placed on each seat.
My brother and sister in law had a mini sweet shop. They had a number of different jars all with different sweet and personalised bags to put them in. Was really good everyone just helped themselves x
I went to a wedding n they gave mini jars of jam "spread the love" with their names n wedding date
How about the classic way? A small box with sugared almonds?
Lottery tickets xx
We had wooden names and the guests loved it!xx
We had personalised candles and sweet bags where people could help their selves to sweets from the sweet cart
We done shots for everyone to enjoy on the night with a hand written lable.
We also had a candy table for everyone to enjoy
We had British heart foundation badges, a small pack of love hearts and a personalised glass heart. Cheap and Cheerful x
My 1st wedding I had favours in a basket and my 2 little bridesmaid went round and handed them out to everyone, everyone thought it was really cute. We too didn't have a table plan. People could sit here every they wanted to.
I'm going to do a mixture of favours. I think there will be about 100 in total with evening guests. I'm doing some homemade bits, and then a lucky dip bag. Some will have sweets and others maybe money or lotto cards?
They do all sorts for favours! I'm having trouble on what to pick cos there's so many! Think I'm just gunna have a few bits though, chocolates, mints and a candle.
We have got wedding cake slice boxes so once we have cut the cake, it will be cut and boxed for them to take home..... no point in wasting it haha x
Same here, we are having a hog roast so very informal and no seating plan. Our wedding favours are from our photo booth, everyone gets a print and a 2nd print goes in to our guest book x
If you're not sure where to put them you could pop them on everyone chairs for the ceremony that way you know they'll all get one xxx
Save your money and don't have any, nobody will miss them!
I done cone shaped popcorn bags and it was very popular with all my guests xx
I made these myself. Cost a lot less than buying them made up.
100 jars £30
100 lace lids £18
100 labels £12
6kg sweets £26
Saved me a fortune and I got together with my mum, mother in law and sister in laws and had a night in making them with a few glasses of wine! Got everything on eBay apart from the sweets, got those in wholesalers xx
We didn't have favours just big bowls of sweets dotted around , each child got a toy and activity book though
My cousin didn't have a formal meal at her wedding either. They had a table and someone giving out their wedding favours, which were beers that meant something to them, or jams and pickles that were from a place that meant something to them. That worked really well, as people could pick. If you are going for even more low key, why not have a few different baskets or boxes dotted around with a selection?
Save your money as most people don't appreciate them and they either get left at the reception or thrown into a drawer if they reach home!
Some kind of cake/tray bake/sweet idea that can be laid out on a table.
We're not doing favours and we are having a sit down meal. It's just extra faff that we can't afford and no one really pays them any attention
Charity favours. Most do them.
Sweetcart! Maybe a keepsake gem in a bowl by the gift table? Very inexpensive.
We had tic tacs in personalised covers with our name and the date x
Is there a table the venue could put out with all the favours on then people could just pick one up? That way if you didn't want to pick one type (like sweets) you could have different ones and people just pick what they want xx
Im not doimg favours. Its just added expense that half dont use/take home. Xx
I know someone who did embossed leather coasters that matched their colour theme. Just dotted them on tables
I sell wedding day scented Waxs melts and candle just in box's Me for details or email me at [email protected] for more information
We are doing shot glasses, personalised for the guests (bit of glitter and a glass pen!!) and a take a shot, take a seat sign... works if your guests like a drink! If not glasses of sweets? Also I've been to weddings where each guest gets a scratch card, quite a simple but fun idea, could write each persons name on them and display them on a table or something? Good luck
I'm having a sweet table instead x
We didn't have a sit down meal or a table plan. We had cake pops as our favours and put one at each seat and had a table with spares on. This worked really well.
Im interested to know how you are feeding 140 with out sitting down.
The candle are 17.50 come in gorgeous blue box's that you can keep the candle in
We're looking at a sweet cart with personalised bags. We aren't having a sit down meal and are catering for 80 odd
Thanks for all the suggestions
you could do cake pops with the guests name on the tag and pop them on a pretty plate at the end of your Buffett it's a sweet treat, hand made and you can personalise it to make your guests aware you've personalised their favour xxxxxx
I would do a table plan anyway read loads of wedding planners top tips and worse thing to do is not have a seating chart as it's like being chosen last in pe at school
Zoe Baines at the reception do we do seating plans or let guests sit where ever they like? x
