Here are the two most popular ways to personalize your wedding favors for your guests. These two are tried and tested to make your special day extra special.
DIY Wedding Favors
Custom tea and coffee bags
This is a novel way to show your guests you care, and it’s so simple to make. Simply, pick up a pack of great coffee or tea leaves, get some small bags or beautiful fabric and tie them at the top. Buy all of the items in bulk so you can save money.
To make your gift even more personal, why not add a tag of your wedding date, venue or names inside for the ultimately unique wedding favy.
Get creative with your wedding favors and give your guests a practical gift to remind them of you. Make a personalized coaster yourself using a photo of the happy couple, your wedding venue or even a map of the venue or area of the wedding. You can buy all the items in bulk and can use either cork, wooden squares or tiles as a base and paper for the embellishments. Tie a couple of them up together with some beautiful string and your personalized wedding favy is complete.
Candy Bracelets and Necklace
So this isn’t especially DIY wedding favors, but it is how you present them to your guests that make them unique. Add a personalized message to the candy necklace using a small piece of string to make this gift extra special.
