At AA Executive Wedding Car Hire we know how important it is to have everything the way you want it to be on your special day. From the dress to car, flowers and cake, there are a lot of things to factor into your budget. Wedding favours don’t need to be expensive; in fact some of the nicest gifts are handmade like our top five ideas below.

 

Candles

For a chic feeling, candles are a great wedding gift for your guests. Easy to find or simple to create your own, they won’t put a dent in your wedding budget. Particularly with the winter months approaching candles add a lovely touch to any home. Why not tie a ribbon or string around the glass, attach a label with each guest’s name, or add a sprig of lavender.

Jam/Honey

Rustic weddings are particularly common when autumn strikes. If you’re good in the kitchen, homemade jam can be a nice way of saying thank you to your guests. For beekeepers, why not offer honey. Small jars are cheap to buy and the sweet flavours are sure to make your guests smile. Just add your own label and decorate with a piece of lace or string.

Lavender Sachets

Bring the aromatic scent of lavender to your wedding by offering a small lavender sachet to each guest. Simple to make even if you aren’t so creative, you could try your hand at sewing using various different fabrics for each bag, or just purchase small tie bags from gift/crafts stores. For something classic and elegant to suit any style of wedding, lavender is a good choice.

Homemade Soap

Without implying anything negative to your guests, homemade soap is the best choice for a useable and eco-friendly favour. The theme of your wedding might help you decide on what scent: for a brighter soap think about using citrus rinds but for a more subtle scent and colour opt for lavender or peppermint oil. Add a Castile base to the mixture and leave in soap moulds for four hours before wrapping in parchment

Miniature Potted Plant

Why not give your guests a living gift. For the green fingered bride and groom, miniature potted plants make for an extra special wedding favour. Think of offering a herb sapling or succulent that your guests can continue to cultivate. You can personalise your plant gifts by thinking of your own way to pot them. From vintage tins, to wrapped jars or peg-labelled pots, there is no limit to what you could give.
