Im getting married later this year:D and Im having trouble on what the wedding favours would be. As I would like to have something different not the usual ones that you get at wedding.

Any ideas anyone. Probably the ladies and men will get different favours.

Make it something personal to you and the groom.

Do you have any hobbies? Do you collect anything?

For example... say hubby to be likes fishing... for all the gents going to the wedding, present them with something that relates to fishing.

Say you collect teddy bears.... give all the females some kind of teddy, like a little ornament or a chocolate teddy...That kind of idea.

Or if you have something that you both enjoy use that as a basis :)

We collected pebbles off the beach and wrote an english word on one site and a gaelic word on the other. They can be expensive to buy but it took us an afternoon to decorate them. You can see the idea here


Actually we didnt collect them - my wonderful artist friend had already collected pebbles from beaches around caithness for a project she had decided not to do so she gave them to me.

We used words like

trust,friendship, happiness, love, laughter and so on. Many of our friends have their pebbles on display on mantlepieces and the like. It was great.

I had glass sheep as my favours, being a farmer they were very appropriate. I had them made in glass creations in Thurso. :)
