Wedding favours are gifts or souvenirs given to guests as a token of appreciation for attending your special day. Couples can customize or choose items that match the wedding’s theme or hold special meaning to the bride and groom. Once you’ve chosen your wedding favors, you’ll need to decide how to pack them. If your wedding favors are edible and delicate like a delicious macaron, a protective box is essential. You can then seal it with custom stickers or ribbon. Packaging can accentuate the theme, colours and mood of the day. A stylishly wrapped wedding favour is just as important as the floral or cake choices you’ve made.
If you’re purchasing wedding souvenirs in bulk and wondering how to present them in a way that’s unique to you and your day, it really is quite easy. You can choose from a vast selection of wedding favour boxes and packaging, dependent on whether you want something formal, casual, colorful, or monochrome. For my wedding we personalised kraft style boxes with personalised sticker seals, and had gift bags printed with our names and wedding date. Stores like Packaging World helped us a lot and they have customised wedding favour boxes which you can fill with treats that your guests will love.
Different wedding favours require different packaging, depending on what the favours are. We used quite a number of the below ideas as we had quite a few favours. I just didn’t know when to stop!
Tied Fabric Wrapping
To give your gifts a soft sustainable feel, cut a square of lightweight linen, centre the gift box on it, and tape the two opposite fabric corners to the box top. Finish by tying the other two. For example, traditional sugar-coated almond gifts, which in many cultures symbolize fertility. When you replace typical wrapping with loose linen it adds a really unique look.
Candy stations are popular choices for couples who want their guests to help themselves. A tailored candy bag as a treat is an easy and economical add-on to traditional wedding favours. Goodie bags with foil-printed inscriptions are pretty, and something guests can ‘save’. There are also kraft paper options for rustic or barn weddings.
Wedding Candy Jars
Customised wedding candy jars are perfect for giving guests wonderful gifts they can keep forever. Put candies, mints, or even chocolates in containers and leave them with visitors’ table settings or on a table for them to grab on their way out. The charm of a glass jar is that you can reuse them to store everyday items like cotton balls, cash, buttons, or even spices. Wedding favors typically come in jelly bean jars. Glass jars are ideal for maple syrup, sauce, honey, or jam favours.
Glass Bottle With Cork Stopper
You deserve to remember your beachside wedding’s gorgeous white sand and tiny seashells. Glass bottles with cork stoppers are the ideal containers for the job! Fill them with the beach’s finest sand and include a note of gratitude to friends and family. You could also use this style of bottle for a gin favour, and personalised it with a customised sticker on the front.
Fill lovely cello bags with sweets, nuts, chocolate, or cookies, attach a tag and then leave on your guest’s place setting. Due to their cardboard bases, these fashionable cello bags stand upright and you can match them to the colour scheme of your wedding via ribbon ties.
Personalised cake slice favour boxes are an excellent way to thank your guests. Some wedding guests may be too full to eat a slice of cake but would gladly take some home to eat later. Send your guests home with a personalized cake slice box. You can personalize cake slice favor boxes are with a design or monogram, or even just with a personalised sticker seal. A few lines of customised text may be added, such as the bride and groom’s names and wedding dates. A piece of your wedding cake in a favour box, together with a thank you message from the couple, make a memorable and tasty wedding souvenir. Discuss the size of the cake slice boxes with your caterer. The number of anticipated guests can help your caterers recommend the appropriate cake size.
Choose a print fabric drawstring bag, that matches the theme of your day. You can put butter mints and chocolate hearts inside the pouches and personalise with a customised tag. Drawstring bags and organza sachets are reusable, come in several colors and sizes, and are relatively inexpensive. They’re ideal for wedding favour bundles since you can fill them with soaps, mints, dried lavender, loose-leaf teas, and mints. Based on your wedding’s motif and aesthetics, you can build favour bags that best express the mood of your day.
Your wedding favors will look great if you parcel them with suitable packaging that’s personalised to your day. Take time to browse the wide range of excellent packaging options in online or physical stores and you’ll indeed find something that compliments your wedding day perfectly.
