Five Reasons Why Edible Wedding Favours Are a Good Idea
Wedding favours are one of the cute, enjoyable details of wedding planning. They’re fun to arrange, and can add real character to your wedding table. But it’s not always easy to know what to choose. Personalised keepsakes are appealing but can be costly, but with edible wedding favours, you can find something for almost everyone.
Five Reasons Why You Might Want to Consider Edible Wedding Favours
Edible wedding favours are affordable
Weddings are big business. And if you’re in the throws of organising a post-lockdown wedding, you’ll probably already know just how much expense is involved. Even the little details add up. And while personalised bottle openers might be only £2 each, if you’re inviting 100 guests, the costs can easily skyrocket. Personalised Wedding Love Hearts work out to be £0.20 per pack. So, that’s 100 guests catered for, for just £20. Giving you plenty of scope to double up, add gift boxes, or simply work to a sensible budget.
Most people will enjoy edible wedding favours
You know that feeling at the start of a wedding reception, where you’re just waiting and waiting for the food to arrive? THAT’S where edible wedding favours come into their own! They fill the hungry gap. But if you choose well, they also make a great talking point. Retro sweets create nostalgia. And nostalgia is a really good way to build a happy, awkwardness-free atmosphere. As an added bonus, you can also be pretty sure that you won’t be left with a pile of wasted wedding favours at the end of the day.
Guests feel no obligation to keep edible wedding favours
While your friends and family will be delighted to help you celebrate your big day, if they’re completely honest, few will be looking for a lasting memento to treasure. They will delight in your photos, and enjoy posting their own all across social media. But not many of them are going to place a glass tankard with your names and wedding date engraved on it in pride of place on their mantlepiece. Edible wedding favours are rarely wasted. And with personalised sweets like Swizzels Love Hearts, anyone looking for a keepsake, has the wrapper to take home with them.
Edible wedding favours can be easily tied in with your theme
The great thing about food is that it’s versatile. So, edible favours can be tied into practically any wedding theme. If you’re breaking away from tradition and having a chocolate wedding cake, chocolate favours can tie in beautifully. If your wedding has a vintage flavour, retro sweets make fantastic favours – try getting some candy striped bags and creating your own penny mixtures – a 3kg party pack of sweets can go a long way! If you’re working with an all-white table setting, then personalised sweet wrappers can add an attractive colour pop. You could even go savoury – we hear that there’s a growing trend for personalised pork scratchings!
Personalised edible wedding favours can double up as place settings
There’s a lot to think about when it comes to your wedding table. Selecting place name settings – like Personalised Giant Love Hearts – that can double up as wedding favours can save a lot of time, money, end effort. They look (and taste!) great. It removes some of the clutter for a tidier, more comfortable tabletop. And can provide a keepsake for anyone who wants one. Perfect!
The trend for finding bigger, better, fancier, and more expensive wedding favours has come to the UK from America. And it’s entirely unnecessary. Your friends and family will always be there to help you celebrate. And a little gesture of a wedding favour makes for a lovely touch of gratitude. But no one wants you to break the bank on trinkets that no one really needs. A little something cute to munch on while waiting for food to arrive? Well, we’ll all raise a glass to that!
