If you’re planning a wedding right now you’re probably trying your best to create an event that is unique to you and your other half. You may have spent months browsing the bridal magazines and attending every wedding fayre within a 50-mile radius but it can still be hard to get your hands on the elements that will truly say ‘us’ on your big day.
This is one of the reasons why more and more people are opting to create their own wedding features these days. From table centre-pieces to chair decorations, it seems that DIY has been given a new lease of life when it comes to wedding planning. Wedding favours, in particular, are regularly ‘home-made’ allowing the bride and groom to put their own stamp on the gifts they offer and ensure that they are perfectly suited to the people who will receive them.

Wedding favours don’t have to be complex, they just have to say something about you and your guests. They should be small enough to not take up too much space on the table but big on personality in order to delight or amuse. To help you out, Wares of Knutsford has a beautiful selection of jars and bottle just waiting for you, or your friends and family, to fill. These have all been hand-picked for their elegance and practicality, leaving you free to spend more of your time deciding on what the contents should be.
Ideas for DIY wedding favours
The contents of your chosen bottles or jars are only limited by your imagination – and budget, of course. Your wedding favour ideas should be based on the type of wedding you’re planning and the type of guests who will be there. If it’s a fun and funky theme, the young and young-at-heart with be thrilled with a jar filled with retro sweets, whilst bottles filled with a heady cocktail are perfect for a more grown-up affair. For sheer sophistication, you could offer your guests a single flower in a beautiful bottle or a sparkling gem within a stunning jar. If you’re planning a small gathering, how about creating your very own message in a bottle for each of the guests who attend? You don’t have to say much but what you do say is sure to be appreciated and demonstrate a level of thought and feeling that no mass-produced favour could ever hope to copy.
