I have to confess. I have always been a little negative when it comes to wedding favours. Mostly because I have seen couples spend loads of money on them, only to have them left behind (usually because they forget to take them, sometimes because… well I hate to say it but they don’t actually want them!)
BUT I do understand that it is a nice way to say thank you to your guests for sharing in your special day (especially when a guest can spend a lot of time and money to attend a wedding) so today I went on a little hunt for some unique DIY packaging ideas for your favours that don’t cost the earth to make. I would love to hear your favourite xox
