Create your own wedding favour jars
We might still be in dark and dreary January, with wet and windy weather at every turn, but spring is very definitely around the corner – and this means that wedding season will soon be upon us. If you are planning to tie the knot this year and intend to make your own wedding favours, today’s blog post may just be of interest to you. Read on for some creative ideas on how to use small glass jars to create unique and attractive wedding favours.
Creative ideas for wedding favour jars
Favours for weddings can take all sorts of shapes and sizes, from pretty scented candles to jars of sweets or miniature macarons. White chocolate Jazzies – those chocolate discs with coloured sugar sprinkles – make the perfect sweet treat to go in a small glass jar. Topped with a silver lid, a pastel ribbon and a cute and decorative label bearing the wedding details, you have a simple but effective wedding favour that does not cost the earth. Jelly beans are another firm favourite, along with homemade strawberry bonbons or fudge, and retro sweets such as Flying Saucers and Love Hearts.
If sweets are not your thing, why not fill a jar with salted popcorn, or even the actual popping corn so that guests can take it away and make their own popcorn at home? You could even fill your jars with your own pickle or preserve; after all, who can resist traditional strawberry jam? If you fancy doing something a little quirkier, go for something such as a hedgerow jelly or dandelion marmalade. This will certainly get your guests talking and will create a lasting memento of your special day for guests to take away and enjoy.
Choosing your wedding favour jars
Of course, the perfect jar for your wedding favours depends on exactly what you decide to create. Smaller jars are ideal for filling with sweets, for example, but you will need a standard 1lb jam jar or a stylish equivalent if you want to build a ‘bake your own cookies’ jar or something similar.
Clip top jars are popular with our wedding couples, as they look stylish and fun. With a cute-as-a-button label or sticker and a pretty ribbon that matches the colour scheme of the wedding, these jars look every inch as sophisticated as wedding favours bought from professional suppliers but come at a fraction of the price if you make your own.
