5 DIY Wedding Favour Ideas

Adding a personal touch to your wedding favours is always a good idea. Your guests are putting in their own effort to attend your wedding, just as you are organising and putting effort into it. Some may be flying in, while others may be taking time off work or vacation time.

With that in mind, you’ll want to express your gratitude as honestly as possible. Wedding favours are a wonderful way to express gratitude to those who took the effort to attend and celebrate your wedding, and adding a personal touch will make them stand out even more.

DIY (Do-It-Yourself) may sound daunting, especially if you’ve never done it before.  But DIY’ing doesn’t necessarily mean you have to make something from scratch.  DIY can be something as simple as baking treats and wrapping them in a personalized bag that you can purchase in bulk.

Here are some great DIY ideas that you can put together for your guests at your wedding:

1. Personalized Coasters

Everyone enjoys a nice coaster, and they’re really useful whether at a wedding or at home! You can buy coaster tiles and design them yourself if you choose. Personalized wooden coasters, on the other hand, are a popular option if you’re handy or know someone who is. They look wonderful in any setting.

2. Hot Chocolate

If your wedding is taking place in the fall or winter, why not give your guests a favour that is appropriate for the season? Making a ready-made hot chocolate mix with a personalized message is a simple but lovely present for those who braved the cold to join you in your celebration. All you’ll need is some hot chocolate mix, a mason jar, and any optional toppings like marshmallows or chocolate chips. All of which are available in quantity!

3. Cookies or Baked Treats

Nothing says “Thanks” better than homemade goodies.  Whipping up a large batch of your grandmas cookie or brownie recipe is a delicious way to give back to your guests. Packing up some treats into a small paper bag and personalize it with a card or custom stamp is not only thoughtful, but instagrammable too!

4. Succulents

Succulents are a unique and economical wedding favour. Because the plants may be purchased in bulk, you can set aside some money to replant them in miniature pots that match your wedding motif. If you want to go the extra mile to save money, you may add a small tag or card with the visitors’ names to make it even more personalized.

5. Homemade Spreads

Who doesn’t love a good jam spread? Sourcing local farms or places for berry jams or honey is not only a great way to help on costs (especially if they’re in season), but also it supports local businesses where quality is their focus.  Storing them in bulk purchased jars with a small personalized label and you’ve got an instant hit for your wedding.
