You and your future spouse are getting excited because most of the wedding preparations are done. Now, it is time to decide on wedding favours that best suit your wedding theme.
Choosing between edible wedding favours (i.e. candy and sweets) or inedible favours (like candles) can be quite the dilemma! Your guests will always remember the favours that you choose.
It’s strange to think that after all the money, effort, and stress involved in wedding planning, that the guests main memories will be the brides dress and the wedding favours. Therefore, deciding between wedding favours can be tricky and requires careful consideration.
Inedible Wedding Favours
There are huge variety of inedible wedding favours to choose from. The added benefit of going this route is that you don’t have to worry about food allergies or dietary restrictions. The selection is vast and can make it easier when sticking to the theme of your wedding. Plus, inedible wedding favours last forever and provide long lasting memories of your special day.
Here are some ideas of inedible wedding favours:
- Photo Albums
- Pressed Flowers
- Bottle Openers
Edible Wedding Favours
Edible wedding favours are classic and easy to make personal as well. However, you may need to beware of people with allergies or dietary restrictions. If you have kids at the wedding, candy and sweets are a great surprise for them. The promise of candy is a real incentive for mums who are struggling with their little ones during a lengthy church ceremony.
As far as the more traditional guests are concerned (i.e. your grand mother and old Auntie Doris), a wedding just wouldn’t be a wedding without edible wedding favours.
It is also a cute way to include symbolism into your wedding. 5 candies in a net, bag, pouch or box date back centuries and represent: fertility, health, happiness, longevity and wealth.
Here are some ideas for edible wedding favours:
- Homemade Limoncello
- Olive Oil
- Fruit Carton
- Cocktail Kits
Edible or inedible wedding favours – the choice is yours. But, it is important to realise you can’t please all of your guests. Unless, you offer both!
