Unique Homemade Wedding Favours

One great idea for wedding favours, that we tried out for my elder sister's wedding, was of personalized sweets and treats. All the grown up men at the party were served with excellent cigars, the women were presented with rose flavoured chocolates and the kids were given an entire table of sweets, cookies and chocolates. Except for the cigars, all the chocolates and cookies were homemade. Homemade soap goes down well as a homemade wedding favour idea, if you have any prior knowledge about homemade soap making. Making soaps is not very difficult, as you can use the melt and pour method to make the soap. Different scents and colours can also be used to personalize the wedding soaps.

Below is a list of some of the other, popular homemade wedding favour ideas:

  • Decorative and Sweet Smelling Candles: This can be a great option. The guests can even light their candles, as the darkness begins to set in. It is also very convenient as candle making is easy.

  • Coasters: Coasters can be easily made and decorated at home. They make long lasting and keepsake kind of favours.

  • A Simple Bunch of Flowers: One of the easiest homemade wedding favour idea, is making a small bunch of flowers. It is very economical and also very easy to prepare. To add a personalised effect, one can have different colour roses, like light pink for all the pretty, young ladies, white for the gents and red for the people in love (just married or have started serious courting). One can also offer yellow one for all the senior citizens and a deep pink to the couples who are engaged.

  • Personalized Compact Disc: One of the favours that has come in vogue, is making a CD of both, the groom and bride photographs, and small video clips. This can serve as a long lasting piece of memorabilia. Another trait that is becoming very common, is adding small tags, sometimes personalized to the gift. Adding the tag is also a very nice way of saying thank you to all the guests.
