Spring is a time for creativity and new ideas, there are so
many options when it comes to favours and it’s definitely a
time for unleashing your creative and inventive side. Here
some of our top picks for your spring wedding favours.
This would be
perfect for a rustic or outdoor type
celebration. It’s an adorable way
for your guests to remember your
day with a plant growing in their
garden and it’s symbolic of your
growing love so it’s nice to share
that symbol with the people you
love. It’s also a great way to share a
hobby of yours with your guests if
you’re particularly into gardening.
Jam or preserve
This can be super cute and more
importantly super cheap if you don’t
want to spend a fortune on favours.
You could whip up a few batches of
your granny’s famous jam or even
come up with flavours of your own
using in season berries and fruit if
you want to go down the homemade
route. Alternatively, there are loads
of artisan food companies who would
be willing to make delicious jam for
you and your guests. You can have
your printers make labels for little pots
or jars and you’ll have an adorable
favour at little expense.
Some lovely fruity tea would
be a gorgeous gift to give your guests
to mark the beginning of the brighter
months. You could get some lovely
fragrant flavours for your guests and you could even put out
a selection of different types so that your guests can swap
they so wish.
A donation to charity
This will definitely make your guests
feel better about being a part of
your big day and they will be very
impressed with your charitable side.
This is a huge trend and with great
reason, if you don’t want to spend
a fortune on some small bits and
pieces that won’t mean much in the
future you can make a generous
donation to any charity of your choice
and make a big difference to the
lives of others. The charity might
provide you with cards to display on tables or you can have
some printed yourself to show your guests that you proudly
donated some of your budget to a charity.
