In Singapore, we don’t send thank you notes to our guests for gracing our wedding. So we show our appreciation through wedding favours.
But, have you ever received or seen wedding favours that are (…uh well, to be brutally honest…) a white elephant?
And then you’re stuck with this guilt that it’s not very nice to throw it out, yet you don’t want to keep it?
So here are 24 wedding favour items that your guests will be thankful to receive…
They are sorted according to practical uses, for the hobby activist and for outdoor weddings.
So take your pick for the perfect wedding favour for you guests!
1) Bottle openers
Bonus points for you if you get the magnetic version as your guests can conveniently stick them on their fridge.
2) Vintage Butter spread
If your guest is big on taking insta-worthy pictures of their breakfast, this will make a nice touch.
3) Luggage tags
Your jet-setter guests will love this.
4) Stir sticks
5) Customized cutleries
Nobody will say “no” to and extra set of cutleries for their homes.
6) Bottle stopper and corkscrew set
7) Mason Jar mugs
These mugs add a nice touch to every pantry; they make insta-worthy pictures too on any table
8) Tea infuser
Can’t find anything more appropriate than this for an Asian wedding.
10) Personalised pens
In case you want your guests to sign a guest book and they did not bring a pen, this will come in handy
11) Personalised lighters
12) Instagram coasters
Rule of thumb for any favours with pictures: Don’t give something with your faces on it. Instead use pictures that coincide your wedding theme or candid shots.
13) Single use camera
If you love analogue or if you love lomography, this is the perfect favour to give out on your wedding! Then have your guests send back one picture from their film as a memory keepsake.
14) Edible favours
I remember rushing out of bed to get to a wedding once and I was famished when I reached the venue. Thankfully they were giving out Madeleine as favours. Also, your guest don’t have to carry the favour around after the wedding because it’s probably in their stomach already when the ceremony ends.
15) Shot glasses
Something that everyone seem to want but nobody is willing to buy it for themselves
16) Cookie cutter
Great for bakers and art-savvy friends
17) Cute Measuring spoons
Even if you don’t bake, you’ll need measuring spoons for cooking..sometimes.
18) Themed poker cards
Every household NEEDS a pack of cards, for social gathering purposes
Great for Outdoor Weddings
19) Hand fans
In case it gets really hot at your wedding, your guests will thank you for this.
You can double up by printing your program at the back of the fan too.
Sunny outdoor wedding? No problem
21) Bubble tubes
Have your guests blow the bubbles as the two of you recess out; dreamy Kodak moment.
This also helps to keep the kids entertained
22) Hand sanitizer
Perfect for any guest with OCD in the outdoors.
23) Mini tealight holders
24) Mini Mint pack
You’ll never know if you need a timely mint to freshen your breath.
