A sentimental gift to keep in mind when styling your wedding is the Wedding Favour. Gone are the days of flavored almonds wrapped in tulle and a ribbon around it. Just like everything else on your special day, it should represent a personalised reflection of the couples love for one another, as well as the gratitude of having the guest attendance. There are endless DIY ideas to create that memorable piece and leave a lasting impression.

 

Jar of Homemade Jam

Can be pre-made some time ahead of the wedding and everyone can use a beautiful, personalised jam  jar to take home. Don’t have time to make your own? You can buy gorgeous handmade jam jars from LoveNestGift on ETSY.
