    5 ways to create unforgettable wedding favours

    Wedding favours are a way to say thank you to your loved ones for the part they have played in not only your nuptial celebrations, but your life to date. Rather than impractical, impersonal favours that will be left on the table when the festivities have faded; we show you five ways to create unforgettable wedding favours that sincerely express your gratitude and are guaranteed to go home with your guests.

    1. Use it

    Wedding favours that can be used in the world beyond the wedding are always a big hit with guests. If you're getting married in the middle of summer, items such as Hangover Kits, wooden wedding fans, customised beach thongs or stubby holders to keep your beer cold go a long way. Similarly, winter weddings may see you providing wraps, gloves or even slippers for tired, post-dancefloor feet. Personalise these presents with your own special message, artwork or design to provide a practical gift with a personal touch.

    5 wedding gift ideas for the bride & groom who have everything

    You've been invited to the wedding of the couple that has it all. Successful in both love and life: they are financially astute, have already taken a sizeable chunk out of the mortgage for their tastefully furnished abode, are escalating upward on their respective career ladders, not to mention being irritatingly gorgeous and crazy about each other. Sigh. So the question is; what do you get the bride and groom who already have everything?
