  • 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.

    2) Gin and flower lollies

    These will just look really pretty on your table as extra decoration.

    3) Tiny bottles of limoncello

    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
