There was a time not so long ago when wedding favours were a simple bag of sugared almonds in a pretty little bag. It was nothing short of expected that every bride and groom would gift their guests with this sugary treat (that no one really liked). Since then we’ve seen all the favours under the sun – from custom fortune cookies to miniature pot plants to personalised pencils. There was nothing off the table if you pardon my pun. Now, couples are debating whether to even spend their hard earned cash on favours at all!
If you’re debating whether to have favours and/or want something original I have some ideas on how to breathe new life into the favour game, starting with some inedible favours your guests will actually love.
Give your guests a free pass to get wild after dinner by presenting them with this hangover tea, maybe with an eye mask and some mints… Available from Apply Me Beauty.
