5 Wedding Favours That Won’t Be Thrown Away

We’ve all been to those weddings with the strange favours. Let’s get real – nobody is going to use a set of coasters with the bride and grooms face on them. So, what are the best wedding favours that your guests will actually take home and treasure and won’t break the bank?

The Soundtrack CD

You probably already have your wedding playlist all picked out. Compile a list of your favorites and burn them to blank CD’s for your guests. The best part? Every time they listen to it, they’ll be reminded of your day and how much fun they had. Not to mention it’s an easy, inexpensive DIY that will add a beautiful, personal touch to your Big Day.


The Simple S’mores Kit

Who doesn’t love a good s’more? Graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate tend to transport you back to childhood and remind you what’s really important. Having an evening wedding? Consider having a bonfire so your guests can crack open the treat for a post-dancing snack.



Remember how excited you used to get when you got to light a sparkler? Watching the fire as you spelled your name and wishing it would last longer? Not only are sparklers great for photo opportunities, their just fun to play with!


Mini Alcohol Bottles

Nobody is going to throw away a good drink! Print up a cute little tag like the one pictured below, or add a personal message, a clever quote, or even a simple “Thank You For Being Here” with the couple’s name and wedding date. Attach it to the bottle with a length of twine and you have just about the easiest, yet totally adorable, DIY wedding favor ever.


Mulling Spices

Looking for something a little less traditional? How about some delicious mulling spice for those chilly evenings? There are two different ways to do this favor. You can gather the cinnamon sticks, allspice berries, cloves, cardamom, and orange peel and place them inside cheesecloth to make individual favors. Or, you can make a Mulling Spice Bar. Set out all of the ingredients with cheesecloth squares and lengths of ribbon or twine and let guests create their own sachet. Have a carafe of hot water and maybe even some spirits to add for a little extra punch.
