DIY Wedding Favours: A Personal Touch That Will Delight Your Guests

Fri 3rd February 2023

Wedding favours are an excellent way to show your gratitude to your guests and give them a small token to remember your special day. They can be as straightforward or as elaborate as you like, but one thing is sure: DIY wedding favours are an excellent way to put your personal touch on your big day.

Not only are DIY wedding favours cost-effective, but they also offer endless creative possibilities. From personalised candles to homemade jams and chocolates, you can choose favours that perfectly reflect your tastes, style, and budget. Whether you're a creative DIY enthusiast or just looking for a fun and meaningful way to express your appreciation, DIY wedding favours are a fantastic option.

One of the tremendous benefits of DIY wedding favours is that they allow you to add a personal touch to your special day. For example, you can use your wedding colours or themes to create favours that perfectly match your décor. Or you can choose items that reflect your interests, such as handmade soaps or bath bombs if you're a beauty enthusiast or custom-printed coasters or bottle openers if you're a wine connoisseur. The possibilities are endless!

Another advantage of DIY wedding favours is that they allow you to save money while making lasting impressions. Professional wedding favours can be expensive, especially if you're planning a large wedding. However, making your favours is a cost-effective way to give your guests a special treat without breaking the bank.

DIY wedding favours are also an excellent opportunity to get creative and have fun with your partner or bridal party. Whether baking cookies, assembling goodie bags, or making custom-labelled bottles of wine, creating your favours can be a wonderful bonding experience. Plus, it's a great way to get your friends and family involved in your wedding planning process.

Almost as important as what does on your wedding invitations is where and who you get to make them. After all, wedding invitations are very personal and memorable, meaning that choosing the right printing service is key. When you put your trust into GP Printing – a Peterborough printing service – you can sit back, relax and enjoy your wedding knowing we've got you covered. 

There are many easy and affordable DIY wedding favour ideas to choose from. Here are a few suggestions to help you get started:

  1. Edible favours: Treat your guests to a sweet or savoury snack with homemade baked goods, such as cookies, mini cakes, or homemade jams or chocolates. You can even create an assortment of sweets and treats for your guests to take home. Get customised paper bags for guests to take home and enjoy!
  2. Personalised candles: Create a cosy and romantic atmosphere with handmade candles that reflect your wedding colours and scent preferences. You can find candle-making supplies online or at your local craft store and use custom labels by having them printed as stickers or tags to personalise each favour.
  3. Handmade soaps: Give your guests a spa-like experience with handmade soaps in your favourite scents. You can choose from various soap-making supplies, including glycerin soap, melt-and-pour soap, or cold-process soap. If you want to get more elaborate with it, why not present your soaps in customised box wraps?
  4. Custom-labelled bottles of wine: Treat your wine-loving guests to a special bottle of their favourite vintage, complete with custom labels featuring your names and wedding date. It can easily be done, like the candles, design your labels and then have them printed as stickers!
  5. Eco-friendly favours: Show your commitment to the environment with eco-friendly favours such as reusable shopping bags, potted herbs, or succulents. These favours not only show your concern for the planet, but they also give your guests a practical and long-lasting gift.
