Simple Wedding Favour Bag ideas – Part 2

When it comes to planning a wedding, every detail must be perfect, from the big white dress right down to the salt and pepper pots on the tables.

There is so much to think about when it comes to planning your dream day that it can be very easy to overlook some things, which is why brides often draw up huge lists. Wedding favours have become extremely popular at contemporary weddings, as the small gifts laid out on the wedding breakfast tables have become more extravagant over the years and guests have become to expect them.

Traditionally, the small gifts were given at weddings from the bride and groom as a symbol of thanks for attending or as a keepsake of the day. Originally known as a bonbonniere, they started out in the form as a small trinket box which contained sugar cubes, which represented wealth and royalty. As sugar became more affordable, the cubes were gradually upgraded to sugar almonds.

Nowadays there really are no limits to what couples decide to give. Chocolates, personalised bubbles, homemade jams and decorated precious stones are just some ideas that have been used over the years. However, there is so much more to wedding favours than deciding what they will be. As they are quite a key feature on the wedding breakfast table, how they are presented is has also become very important. Many brides want the small gifts to look as tasteful as possible, very often matching the colour scheme.

Favour bags are probably the easiest way to present your wedding favours. Here are five simple wedding favour ideas:

1. If you are planning a vintage wedding, many people opt for the simple brown paper bag, which, tied with a pretty ribbon, can look incredibly effective. Brown paper bags can also be easily customised which will give your wedding guests something to talk about when sitting down.

2. Kraft carry bags come in a range of colours and have handles, which will make it easier for your guests to carry them. They make a great alternative to plastic bags and are ideal for most small gifts.

3. Party loot bags are very simple but come in all the colours of the rainbow, so you are guaranteed to find one that matches your colour scheme.

4. For couples who have gone to the trouble of designing a wedding logo or coat of arms for their big day, you might want to consider having your favour bags branded to coincide with your theme. The custom made bags may work out a little more expensive, but will definitely give your guests something to talk about.

5. If you are looking for more premium bags, then you might want to consider buying glossy laminated gift bags which are made from strong gsm paper and will give a high class look to any table.
