    We live in Spain and are having fans - I have chosen handmade paper ones, but we could have had them engraved in the edge with names and date etc... something apt for the location and different, but practical for afterwards.
  • Hi

    Try www.aweddinglessordinary.co.uk for amazing favours, which aren't too expensive. I'm using the single white rose soaps to give out as gifts to guests at my hen party. xx

    Penguin's posted a thread about her handmade chocs, they're delicious! Very messy at first to make, but yummy!

    My MiL recently went to a wedding with scented fans- don't know where they came from but she said they were a godsend in the heat and she is still using it now!

    I'm having 100 people and I was aiming to spend about £100, although it's gone up to about £180 as I wanted to do something different for the ladies and have consequently gone over budget!

    But if I was doing it again, I would buy the favour boxes from ebay (I got 50 of these for the men at £9!), they're really nice. Then I bought ribbons, also from ebay, for £16 (I bought 2 different types for the 2 colour effect I wanted, so really you would only need half as much). And I made little labels with our names and wedding date out of pink card that I had already and used gold pen. You can then fill then with little chocs or sweets.

    They really don't have to be very expensive - you just have to get a bit creative (be warned though - tying ribbons on boxes takes a lot longer than you imagine!!!!

  • I have seen favour boxes in tesco they are already made up and they have some nice designs which are really resonably priced havent decided what to put inside because thought about almonds or mints or love hearts but cant make my mind up!
  • I havn't decided what favours we are having yet, but we are going to be paying in the region of £40-£50 per head for the meal, so I can't see the point in giving the cheapest favours I can find. I don't have an unlimited budget, but having looked at some of the favour sites for around £2 each i think there are some really nice favours, and in the scheme of things an extra couple of hundred pounds is worth it to get something that I really like, rather than making do with the cheapest option. i hope that this doesn't offend anyone, just my opinion.
  • Hello!

    I'm having small transparent plastic cube favour boxes (from Confetti in Tottenham Ct Rd) which I'm tying with chocolate brown organdie ribbon...filling will prob be something fun like a transparent wrapped soft fruit pastille, then 2 other chocolates - pink foil/transparent wrapped (or may melt in the box and stick to it!)

    The ribbon matches the ribbon on my bouquets...and the flowers are palest pink roses. Dress is choc brown sating with a very pale pink bolero top.
