    I'm giving a charity donation instead of favours for guests
  • I'm doing same sort of thing as AmandaCS, I'm getting raffle tickets from our local hospice. Thought of giving lottery tickets then I received a flyer saying they were selling raffle tickets and a light bulb went off in my head. Fingers crossed they will be doing a raffle around the time we get married, if not I will be asking the local childrens cancer trust if they do something similar.



    Away from that theme, you could give mini plant pots or I read somewhere that the couple had bought bags of plant seeds and then had them personalised with their wedding details and gave them to guests.

    ive heard of peole giving lottery tickets before but im just having personalised chocolates with coffee and matchbooks as alot of our guests smoke, very cheap and more likely to be appriciated. at my h2b`s brothers wedding they went to a huge effort of making cds which just got left on the tables which must have been heartbreaking.

    we're having a heart shaped chocolates in a purple and white orgnaza bag with a heart shape tied round the top and a small bottle of vodka for the ladies plus a bookmark with our wedding verse on it and then a small bottle of whisky for the men with a cigar.



    The children are having a part box each.

    For my wedding we are just having an informal, stand up buffet reception and lots of dancing (very traditional for where I'm from). Apart from bridesmaid/attendants, I assume it isn't necessary for favours at such a thing?



    Please correct me if I am wrong.
  • Hi Kez



    We are having seedsticks they come in a personalised packet with your names and the date of the wedding on them like a matchbook but only bigger and all your guest's do is take them home stick em in a plant pot and water. Then they will have a beautiful flower/plant to remind them of your day :\)



    Theyr'e not expensive and I bought organza bags on e-bay

  • Hi All,



    I worked at a wedding this weekend and they had brilliant favours, pink breast cancer pins for the girls and testicular cancer dog tags for the guys. I thought that was a great idea and something really worth while.



    Personally I don't really get favours, I know almonds are traditional but we spent hours putting them in bags for my bro's wedding and they were left/thrown away.



  • My wedding is on the 2nd December and I have bought christmas boobles and threaded personalised ribbon with ours names and wedding date through them - to hang on Christmas trees.

    I bought organza bags and made up a little thank you ryhme to put in them.

    Made them up this week and they are fab and so inexpensive and 70p each!!!!
  • Our wedding is in December next yr and we're thinking of giving Advent Calendars, but not sure yet
  • I'm keeping to a scottish theme and i'm having miniture bottles of whiskey for the men and tablet (a scottish sweet) for the women. We also have lots of children attending so I'm going to put some sort of party bag together for them.
  • Does anyone have any ideas for a late november wedding , i thought of small bottles of mulled wine (this is what we are having for our drinks reception) but cant think of much else - want something a little different

    me and h2b are having little mini bride and groom gingerbread men (www.imageonfood.co.uk) just thought it was really different, and don't have to get different ones for the kids then! take a look, it's worth it!
