DIY WEDDING FAVOURS
A big trend of the moment. If you are going down the DIY route, then start them early, at least 3-6 months before hand, that way you will know if they look OK, or you might need a rethink. Starting early gives you that flexibility you won't have if you leave it to the last minute.
Also don't be afraid to ask the groom, family members or bridesmaids to help a hand. After all, they will want the day to look as fantastic as you, so I'm sure they will be happy to help.
Chocolate... we all love it! You can make it personal by having bars name with personalized wrappers, which your guests will love. Or in shapes like the cake shape above, which looks great. Its always a cheap and safe option, and comes in several different flavours. But when was it not OK to give away chocolate as a favour? I don't think you will get any complaints!
We can't forget and the children! More than anything, at a wedding children need to be entertained. Especially for 5 minutes at the reception when everyone is sat down and its speech time. Rather ran your children crying or getting restless half way through, it might be a good idea to give them a goody pack as a favour to keep them quiet! Though sweets and bubbles are always a cost effective and fun option too.
