Wedding favours may seem like an inconsequential component of the grand event, but if you’re inviting two hundred guests, a seemingly small trinket can suddenly add up to a hefty sum. Many frugal brides save money by making their own wedding favours. If you’re using candles, ribbons, photo frames, tulle, or other non-perishable materials, you can make them weeks or even months in advance of your wedding night. Page through wedding magazines or visit craft stores for inspiration. Once you’ve settled on an idea and gathered all of your supplies, invite your bridesmaids over for a favour-making party. Another unique, simple idea is to print out some bookmarks (on recycled paper) with a message informing guests that a charitable donation has been made in their name.

Here are few links with some cool wedding favours!


We had a great time coordinating this Irish meets Italian wedding!  Despite the torrential downpours that day….although Mike and Kellie were lucky patcher apk so in love and caught up in the moments of the day I don’t even think they noticed it was raining!  Thanks for having us, congratulations again!

A big thanks to Alan Maudie Photography for the great pics!

We coordinated Charishe & Gabriel’s wedding over the weekend.  What a beautiful couple!  A modern wedding for a modern couple.  Congratulations you two, thank for bringing us along for the ride.
