Many happy couples end up making last-minute preparations for their nuptials. Fear not if you are racing against the clock to make sure your dream wedding is everything you hoped for. In this article, we have some great wedding favours ideas for couples on a budget. Hand out these gifts as a lovely “thank-you” to your guests on the day and they won’t be disappointed!

Hand-made Cookies

Everybody loves cookies and they are a top choice for anyone searching for DIY wedding favours ideas. This is a cute gift you can bake at home or ask someone else to do the honours on your behalf. Pick up some metal cookie cutters in a heart shape. Personalise the cookies with piped icing and wrap each one in a plastic bag tied with a ribbon.

Candy Bags

Continuing with a sweet theme, why not dish out pick & mix sweets in a paper bag? Younger guests and those with a sweet tooth will adore a bag of candy party favour. You can use personalised stickers and ribbon to decorate your bags, and then write each guest’s name on the bag using a glitter pen. Don’t forget to include some romantic Love Hearts sweets in the mix!

Sprigs of Dried Flowers

Are you looking for floral ideas for wedding favours? Small bunches of dried flowers tied with ribbon or lace make a wonderfully pretty wedding favour, especially if your wedding theme is rustic or shabby-chic. Seasonal flowers like Lavender can be plucked and dried at home several weeks prior to the big day.

Personalised Coasters

Pick up some personalised wooden coasters from Etsy. Have them engraved with your names and the date of your wedding. Guests can take their coaster home and put it to good use – it will remind them of the wonderful day they spent celebrating your union.

Miniature Scented Candles

Everyone loves a scented candle, so stock up on a box of miniatures in a range of delicious scents. Pop one next to each place setting at the reception. Your guests can light them as night falls or take them home as a cute wedding favour.

Mini Shot Bottles

Weddings are a good excuse to have a few drinks so why not help your guests along with some miniature shot bottles? Fill your shot bottles with the tipple of your choice. For example, if you’re planning a Scottish-themed wedding with kilts and bagpipes, malt whiskey would be perfect. You can even opt for some homebrew if you’re feeling brave!

Hangover Bags

When it comes to unusual wedding favours ideas, we have you covered. How about dishing out some hangover bags to your guests? If you are putting on a free bar, this gift is likely to go down well the following morning. Fill your bags with headache remedies, protein bars, and some dark glasses.

These ideas for wedding favours on a budget are inexpensive and easy to find if you search online. Other fab ideas we came across include miniature succulents, wildflower seed bags, small photo frames, and potpourri bundles.
