There is a lot to think about when planning a wedding. From the all-important decisions of the venue and the dress, down to details like wedding menu cards and place cards, every single aspect comes together to create your theme.

Wedding favours are a long-standing favourite at weddings, and there are hundreds of ideas to choose from. Here are three themes to narrow down your decisions:

Edible favours

The traditional sugar almond is a wedding hallmark, and it is considered almost retro these days. If this isn’t your style, there is everything from sweets to handcrafted chocolates to consider. Your guests will undoubtedly love something to nibble on, but the only downside is that these favours are unlikely to last beyond the day itself.

Seasonal favours

While many weddings are held in the summer months, more and more are opting for a different season to tie the knot in. If your wedding is in December, Christmas-themed favours could work, such as candy canes or baubles. If your big day is in spring, you could opt for something egg or bunny related, while autumn could recognise the colder months ahead with hand warmers or hot chocolate sets.

Keepsake favours

If you’d like your guests to remember your day with a more long-lasting keepsake, practical objects are likely to be used in everyday life and therefore serve the purpose well. Bottle stoppers, coasters, bubble bath and candles are all items with some longevity.

The main point is to reflect something of your personalities in your wedding favours, so whether you want classic and traditional or quirky and fun, don’t be afraid to get creative.
