18 brilliant wedding favour ideas from Instagram

Looking for some wedding favour ideas? Here's a few genius little guest gifts for your big day

Bye bye bags of sugared almonds, pretty much anything goes with wedding favours these days. From personalised honey dippers to tiny succulents, from compass keyrings to bottles of limoncello, here are some brilliant wedding favour ideas from Instagram to inspire you.

1) Personalised honey dippers

There’s obviously great pun potential for ‘sweet on you’ / ‘bee mine’, plus it’s something your guests can actually use.

13) Doughnuts

We love the chic brown boxes too

14) Mini compasses with the table names

Quite a sweet wedding favour idea if you’re both into travel. Also, moving in the right direction metaphors and all that…

15) Olive oil

Great idea if you’re getting married in the Med

16) Home brews

These little bottles of homemade sloe gin or coffee vodka make great wedding favours. Another idea is to put a bottle of gin or vodka on each table and make everyone’s individual place setting a bottle of tonic – DIY cocktails

17) Packets of forget-me-not seeds

We love this idea, and it’s relatively inexpensive too

18) Personalised candles

If in doubt, extend your wedding branding to a candle
