Traditional and Contemporary Ideas for Wedding Favours

Nov 26th 2014 at 11:15 PM

Wedding Favours

Wedding favours are small gifts that the bride and the groom give to each one of their guests at the end of their wedding ceremony. These gifts are a token of appreciation from the wedded couple for all those who took out time and attended the ceremony.

Giving personalised wedding favours to guests is not something that has originated in recent times. This practice can be traced back to hundreds of years to countries such as France and Italy where wedded couples used to distribute sugar confections kept inside small boxes to their guests and share their good luck with everyone.

Nowadays couples are on the lookout for new wedding favour ideas which are unique and make their wedding a bit more special and memorable for all their guests. There is a variety of wedding favour ideas and any one can be selected depending on the theme of the occasion.


A few old followed customs include giving away the pieces of cake cut by the bridegroom in boxes to guests, picture frames, baked goods and other eatables in a decorative box.

Dried Fruits

Dried fruits represent prosperity and harvest, making them a very fine choice to give away as wedding favours to guests. A colourful ribbon bag filled with dried fruits like the Jordan almonds can be wedding favours in the traditional sense.

Photo Frames

Photo frames are the quick and easy way out if couples are confused about what type of wedding favours to give. Each guest can be given a photo frame containing the picture of the couple along with guest. The photo frames can also be used as placards for the seating arrangements, with guests taking them with them at the end of the ceremony.



Small Plants

Some couples gift their guest’s small potted plants. If the wedding is taking place at an exotic location, then plants that are native to that place can be gifted to guests.

Personal Bottles of Bubbly

Most weddings have Champagne served to guests, so why not instead of serving in a glass, there be small customized bottles filled with bubbly for each of the guests.

Personalized Music CDs

The songs that have been played at the wedding can be burned on CDs and given as wedding favours.

Candles and Sweets

Homemade scented candles along with small boxes of sugary crunches or wedding cake decorations will make sure guests will have sweet memories of the wedding when they enjoy the sweets back at home.

Like these, there can be countless other options for wedding favours. One can be as imaginative and creative when it comes to finding great ideas for wedding favours. The price does not matter in such cases, what counts is the thought behind the gifts.
