Make your celebration extra special and unique by adding a personalised finishing touch to your Favours (bomboniere), Tables and Thank-You gifts.
This is an easy thing to do from the smallest touch to a larger gesture - take a look at some ideas below:
- Handwrite the tags for your Favours and Placecards with a message for each Guest - may take a little more time but will mean a lot more to your Guests.
- If you are creative - write a poem together, print it onto some decorative paper and roll up as a scroll tied with ribbon to match your colour scheme - a perfect, inexpensive favour.
- Making your own favours can mean a great deal to your Guests and to you! There are a vast array of Boxes, Nets and Gifts to purchase on eBay, which with a small amount of time can be turned into stunning favours. You can be as creative as you like - or not - there is something to suit everyones ability. Look in magazines and books for inspiration (or even contact some of the eBay sellers for advice - we are always willing to help and offer advice!). A box in colours to match your tables can look stunning with a simple contrasting ribbon and a hand written tag - or use 3-4 nets in a complimentary colour scheme to make the perfect bomboniere / favour with 5 sugared almonds inside. (for more info on this - please see the other guides)
- Use personalised Monogrammed Confetti in your invitations and continue the theme on your reception tables:
Lots of other personalised items can be bought - Personalised Ribbon, Favours, Seedsticks, Napkins etc - all dedicated to your special day.
Thank-You Gifts can be a difficult one to choose - from an engraved Hip-Flask or Compact Mirror ...to a Cute Teddy with your Attendants Names on.... a bouquet of flowers chosen to match the recipients favourite bloom....an engraved Tankard / Wine Glass or Vase ..... or a ticket to see their favourite show...the list is literally endless - Remember - this is something they may treasure for ever as a reminder of their part in your special day!
