20 Wedding Favour Ideas
By: Niagara Wedding Helper | April 2018
A great way to say thank you to all your guests for attending your wedding and celebrating your special day is to provide them each with a Wedding Favour. Wedding Favours are small gifts that each guest gets to take home with them at the end of the night. Typically, these little gifts are placed around the dinner table(s) beside everyone's name tag, however, they can also be placed on a special table for guest to pick up on their way out. These favours can range in price, depending on your wedding budget, but usually do not cost too much. Wedding Favours come in many different forms and can be customized based on your wedding style, colour and season.
