Great Ideas For Wedding Favours & Gifts
Every couple wants their wedding day to be memorable, special and in its own way quite unique. Giving everyone a gift or a favour as a memento is great way of adding a polish to the Wedding Breakfast. The very first wedding favours date back centuries ago and were known as 'Bonbonnieres'. These were given as a symbol of good luck and guests could usually look forward to sugar cubes or sugared almonds.
Now you can really tailor them to your chosen wedding theme or preference and this article has some ideas on things you can make them yourself. Not only are they a fun way to show your guests gratitude and how much you cherish them, they're also a pleasant reminder of what should be, one of the most special days of your life.
Light Of Your Life
A simple place to start is with personalised candles. You have a choice of using coloured glasses with or without lids that can be labelled or decorated. Candle colours and fragrances can be tailored to match the wedding theme. The candle colours can be carefully matched using Bekro Dyes, Mica Powder or Liquid Candle Dye. With a range of over 44 colours for example, Bekro has an excellent palette available that can still be tinted with the addition of white.
Regarding fragrances, the choice is quite enormous with the opportunities to make them very specific to the event a reality. For example, if it’s a summer wedding then using a seasonal Fragrance Oil like Seychelles is an exotic fragrance combining top notes of bergamot, orange & soft peach leading to a heart of coconut, jasmine & muguet on a creamy base of amber, creamy vanilla & almond. A customer said its “One of my absolute favourite scents - it reminds me a little bit of sun cream, holidays and beaches!”
For a classic choice Wedding Day Fragrance Oil is a sophisticated and soothing blend of florals and subtle fruits. A customer said it was “light and floral, perfect for wedding favours with candles.”
Tea lights are an excellent choice as an economic yet flexible route too. These can be coloured and fragranced easily and finished with rustic string or in a labelled box too.
In addition to seasonal fragrances, there are a wide range of Fine Fragrances available that can be male, female or gender neutral. These are similar in style and identity to the well-known fragrances, so they smell fabulous and are familiar too.
Wax Melt Mementoes
As an alternative to candles, wax melts are gaining in popularity due to their versatility coupled with the ease of manufacture while maintaining an excellent scent throw. They are very easy to use as they can be placed in a wax melt burner and the scent will last for days.
These can be further customised as there is a wide range of clamshells available in different shapes and sizes. Hearts and Stars are proving to be popular for wedding favours, particularly when they are used with specific fragrance oils and dyes.
Our recent range addition of Cherry Kisses & Strawberry Hearts Fragrance Oil has proven to be an instant hit. It is a sugary sweet fragrance bursting with juicy, ripe strawberries and lush cherries. All of this is wrapped in notes of candy and fresh vanilla.
Alternatively, our multipacks of Floral Fragrance Oils contain Lavender, Rose, Sweet Jasmine, Honeysuckle and Freesia. These make a fabulous gift regardless of the season and are the perfect accompaniment to dyed wax.
As a great finishing touch, place the wax melts in one of our collection of stunning tins or jars which can be easily labelled and tied with a ribbon or bow.
The Diffuser Difference
As a final idea, a Reed Diffuser is an attractive offering for well wishers on the special day.
With a choice of container shapes and sizes, the fragrance oils can be customised to the event and even the recipient. There is a choice of colours and sizes for the Rattan or Fibre Reeds to perfectly compliment the container used.
The Augeo can be specific too as we offer a standard version or there’s also a Vegan option too. These are both of a very high quality and easy to use so there’s no compromise to be made.
As an excellent finishing touch, there is a range of container caps and high-quality gift boxes are available which can be decorated with a label, note or the addition of a bow or ribbon to compliment.
All of these products are in stock now. The fragrance oils are all available in various sizes from 10ml right up to 5 litres making them ideal for events from the small and intimate up to the large scale.
