    Can you please let me know what you are having for your wedding favours, we are having a sweetie station so we don't really want to give chocolates or sweets as favors so looking for ideas for alternatives, thanks x

    We're going to buy pins from either action cancer or nspcc, and give those to our guests as favours, I think you can buy them for £1 per pin, and then we are going to donate a little more on top of that :)

    There is a post on here about a website called ******* selling Yankee candles at a very knocked down price. There are some Wax Tarts on there for 70p each - I normally pay £2.80 each for these so I am thinking these would make a great quality gift for the ladies x

    We started off with having little minature seats which doubled as place names and they would be filled with dragees or something to that effect. H2b decied last month that he no longer liked that and wanted to give them alcohol minatures. I've already got flip flops for the women for later on, they will be in a basket in pairs for them to help themselves with the amount of dancing I plan on, they will need them. So wasted is the £60 he paid for the favour box/place name seats and he went ahead and ordered the bottles, 120 of them and feels that we should give them to the evening guests as well...eh no honey! THEN just last week announced we'd give them the seat thingys with chocs as well. Needless to say, h2b now has a very full picture of how much things cost, how difficult they are to organise and how disrupting changing his mind at this late stage is. The laugh was when he thought we'd be able to fill 120 x 50ml bottles with 3 litres of spirits. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That was a picture I wish I could have pre-empted and posted. lol. Wish I'd gone with something much simpler like a lollipop (cos that sounds brilliant) or a lotto ticket.

    Wow some really great ideas here.

    We are having mini canvas easles. It links in the our venue name.
    So i have obtained a photo of every guest-mainly their profile pic from a website (FB).

    I have printed out the picture-re-sized it and stuck it to the canvas. They actually look good,if i dont say so myself.
    I have a little heart attached to it with the persons name and on the back our wedding date/names.

    Will look good on the day! x

    I'm doing that to Liza, I have just bought 100 x black and white sriped paper sweetie bags (our colour scheme) for £1.99 from the same place!! I'm going to start looking at car boots etc for the vases to collect for them and have all black and white sweets such as humbugs, bon bons and lollys, so just need to add ribbon and hand made signs.
