Make your own wedding favours
If you are planning to get married sometime soon, the chances are that you are already busy sorting out all the details that make the big day special. Weddings can be extraordinarily expensive and many brides are looking for a highly-personalised theme for their wedding. With sites such as Pinterest offering endless inspiration for themes and details alike, savvy brides are creating unique themes and saving money at the same time by styling their own weddings and creating all the personal touches and details themselves.
One easy way to put your own stamp on the design details at your wedding is to make your own wedding favours. These are small gifts given by the bride and groom as a gesture of gratitude to those attending the wedding. Traditionally, five sugared almonds were given to symbolise longevity, fertility, health, wealth and happiness; in recent times, sugared almonds have perhaps been seen as a little dated, with couples looking for ever more creative ideas for their own favours.
Ideas for wedding favours
We stock a huge range of miniature jars, boxes and bottles that are absolutely perfect for making favours. Fill our 45ml hexagonal jam jars with sweets or nuts, or pop a personalised gift into one of our decorative favour boxes. If you are feeling adventurous, why not make your own infused oils and vinegars and present these to guests in our 40ml glass Esmeralda bottles?
We have seen a whole host of amazingly creative ideas for favours from the brides who come to us for supplies. One bride and groom baked colourful miniature macarons and presented them beautifully in our dinky glass sweet jars, whilst another couple used our simple linen pouches to hold wildflower seeds for an environmentally-conscious and memorable favour.
Chocolates, pralines and fudge are all firm favourites and look gorgeously tempting in our glass sweet jars or miniature Kilner jam jars. Fudge especially is easy to make and can be personalised by using a cookie cutter to create adorable heart shapes, for example. Homemade fortune cookies are also popular and these work well with our favour boxes, which are available in a range of different colours and designs.
Another great idea that we saw recently used homemade elderflower champagne bottled in our heart design miniature swing top bottles. If you fancy a stronger tipple, why not make homemade sloe gin or blackberry vodka and present it in our miniature spirit bottles?
Whatever creative idea you settle on, you are sure to find the perfect jar, box or bottle for your own unique favours here at Wares of Knutsford.
