4 DIY Wedding Favour Ideas

Looking for ways to save money for your big day? Consider these top DIY wedding favour ideas.

Wedding season is almost upon us, so if you're planning on heading down the aisle this spring, now is the time to check that you have everything ready to go.

Every little detail counts, from the flower arrangements and fairy lights adorning your reception venue to the little plastic couple sitting atop your cake.

If you're yet to decide on your wedding favours, save yourself the headache - and some dollars - by considering these four DIY ideas.

Candy Bar

Instead of staying up all night tying pretty ribbons on your favours, you could instead choose the quick and easy set-up of a candy bar.

Simply designate an area in reception that is easy for all guests to reach and set up a table to hold your bowls of candy.

Incorporate your theme by choosing candy bags or boxes that reflect your colour scheme, and treat your guests to a range of sweets such as delicate chocolates, gummies, gumballs, lollipops and melt-in-your-mouth caramels.

Mini Mason Jar Dessert

If you're following a rustic chic wedding theme, you may want to think about gifting your guests with a mini mason jar dessert!

You can whip up a range of sweet treats in mason jars including mini red velvet cakes, boston cream pies, banana and chocolate pudding, and even cookies and cream cheesecake.

Mini Terrariums and Plant Seeds

To really get into the spirit of spring you can choose to use a mini mason jar instead to create terrarium wedding favours.

These are pretty simple to make and can sit as your table decor, before being taken home by your guests. You can add an extra special touch by attaching a small packet of your favourite flower or plant seeds with a ribbon.

Personalised Match Box or Love Potion Bottle

Going DIY with your wedding favours means its time to let your creative mind get to work!

You can provide your guests with a small, sweet-smelling candle accompanied with a personalised match box, printed with you and your partner's names lighting 'the perfect match'.

Alternatively, you can treat your wedding guests to a personalised love potion bottle with your names printed, featuring a special cocktail sachet inside.
