Wedding Favours that are Worth Giving and Keeping.

One important detail that every bride and groom should put some thought into is their wedding favour. These favours or “guest swag” is your thank you gift to your guests for their attendance and their gift. Your guests surely don’t want coasters emblazoned with your name and wedding date. Instead of spending on favours that your guests’ don’t need (or want), why not spend on items that will most likely be appreciated and kept by your family & friends. Here are 6 great gift items that are worth buying.

Alcohol or DIY Mixed Drinks

What guest will not want to take-home a mini bottle of champagne, wine or a combo or rum & coke? Before purchasing 200 mini bottles of alcohol, make sure to check with your venue if they allow alcohol as gift favours.
