Favours on a Budget
It’s one of the last things you think about when planning your big day – how to say thank you. When you’ve got 70+ guests, the usual favours can indeed add up, so here we’ve put together some of the best budget favours that every guest will enjoy
This first idea is for the couple who wants no fuss. These DIY lavender bags make the perfect favour, whilst keeping off your tables. Buy a pretty bowl, that you know you’ll use again, and purchase (or pick and dry out) some dried lavender along with some organza bags and a mini trowel. Tip all the dried lavender into the bowl, lay out the organza bags and trowel, and you’ve got your own favour station for the guests to fill and put in their drawers!
Seeds are becoming very popular favours, and are usually given in a brown paper envelope. We love the idea of seed vials. They are a unique twist on what’s becoming a classic favour and best of all, they are great for those on a budget. You can find these for as little as 10 for £2.99 on online shops, and wildflower seeds as little as £2.49 for 20g. All that’s left is to tie a little tag with a special message and you’ve got the perfect favour.
If you’re not fussed on giving seeds as favours, fill the vials with a loose leaf tea of your choice. Your guests will appreciate this in the morning!
You can’t go wrong with a good sugar boost. You can purchase jars at just £6 for 12 in Hobbycraft. All you need to do is buy your favourite sweets and fill the jar. Finish with a blackboard sticky label or tag.
