Planning a wedding? Don’t forget about those favours! They serve as reminders of the day, and are a thoughtful touch that help each and every guest feel remembered and cherished.

1. Sweet tooth

Wedding favour sweet bags are popular choice any time of year. Whether it’s the traditional sugared almonds or something a little niche, you can fill yours with whatever takes your fancy. But, the most important element is all in the Gift Tag.

Buying your sweet fillings and bags in bulk will keep your costs low, and you can add the final flourish with foiled, square or traditionally cut wedding favour tags! You can even round out the corners for a softer finsih.

2. Get stuck in!

You’d be surprised the wonder that a simple Sticker can bring to your homemade wedding favours. From adding a fun embelishment to Envelopes, to sheets of foiled designs left on the tables for guests to stick with abandon, there’s a plethora of ways to get creative! We offer Stickers in a variety of sizes, including round, rectangle and heart shaped so you can really spread the love!

3. Light it up

Sparklers are a great, affordable idea for your evening guests, and the photos look awesome too! Make yours even more personal by printing your own tags and labels. Go for a flat card (like a lightweight Business Card), or use a Sticker or Label.

4. Hot under the collar

Love spice? Why not create your own special blend of spicy sauce as wedding favours and package them up with a Label or Sticker? It’s a little kooky, a bit different, but most definitely unforgettable.

5. Science of love

Test tubes and weddings might not be an immediately obvious pairing, but if you’re the kind of couple that does things a little differently, they could make the ideal favour! Just like with sweet bags, all you need to do is source your tubes and fillings and print some Stickers – easy!

6. What are the chances?

With millions of people in the world, it’s pretty lucky that you found one and other, right?

Why not spread some of that luck with lottery tickets as your wedding favours? You could house them in gatefold Invitations and seal then with a Sticker to max that anticipation – that’s just what our very own email guru Lucian did with his. We think you’ll agree, they look great!

7. Light of your life

Candles make super cute, affordable favours. Buy them in bulk (hello, IKEA) and then print Labels or Stickers to fit – easy! If yours don’t come with screw on lids like these, just stick your label to the side of the jar or holder. You could even buy tea light holders and tea lights instead of jarred candles if you prefer.

8. Baked to perfection

From cupcakes to doughnuts, baked wedding favours are fun and can be budget friendly if you do a little legwork! To keep costs low, we recommend buying or making your baked favours yourself and then adding an embellishment like a paper flag or Gift Tag.

9. Photo fun
