9 chic wedding favours your guests will actually appreciate

No preservatives, we promise

By ELLE team  June 30th, 2017

Outside the realm of jam jars, lolly bags and stubby holders with matrimonial puns emblazoned on them (‘Mint to be’! ‘Our love is the balm’!), the well of wedding favour inspiration can sometimes come up a little short. To save you the trouble of digging through magazines, etsy listings and Pinterest boards, we’ve compiled a shortlist of wedding gifts that won’t end up inside an op-shop bin after your big day.

(But we won’t make any promises about a lack of wedding puns).

9 wedding favours everyone will always remember


Even though bubbly will (hopefully) be on tap all night, a tiny bottle of champagne, wine or prosecco with a sweet note attached will have your guests leaving a little love-drunk.

It might be a pain of a process, but little candles—perhaps infused with the scent of your wedding flowers or of your wedding perfume—are a great and practical gift.

If you've planned a summertime wedding and have the feeling your guests will be getting a little hot under the collar, a fan (which can also double as a program) is a good way to go.

Whether embroidered with just your initials, a love poem or even a cheeky note, dreamy handkerchiefs are a keepsake that will last.

Having a beach or garden wedding out in the sun? Why not provide your guests with a sweet straw hat to keep them shady and stylish?

Although not extravagant, this sweet little gift—which can be popped on top of plates or held in a container by the door—is useful and will be a nice reminder of your big day. (And they are totally DYI-able). 



Whether they're tiny pots of rosemary or varied succulents, plants are a great lasting gift.
