Stuck for ideas for your wedding favours?
As some of you may be aware, our weddings at Ufton Court support our children’s charity, Ufton Adventure. So why not support charities in your favours too. We have seen many different ways of supporting loved ones charities over the years so have put together some ideas for you all too…
Pin badges – how many times have you been to a wedding and forgotten to pick up your treat at the end of the night, let alone take it home and use it?
Instead of wasting money on something your guests really don’t need, have you thought about donating the ‘favour money’ to a charity and giving out their pin badges instead? Not only are you donating to the charity, you are promoting it too! We love the below idea from a past Ufton wedding!
Seeds – for the green-fingered or even just the competitive brides and grooms amongst us, seeds could be a fun and quirky idea for wedding favours. Provide seeds for all your guests and ask them to have a competition to see who can grow the tallest, most vibrant flowers by your first wedding anniversary!
Bubbles – are you having children at your wedding?
Whether you just want to keep children entertained, or maybe you want an alternative ‘confetti’ photo, bubbles might be a simple yet fun and cheap wedding favour.
Place cards and thank yous – every bride and groom will spend hours researching into the finer details of their wedding day, so put that hard work to use and raise awareness for charities through place cards and thank yous.
Ufton Adventure – and don’t forget, that by holding your wedding here at Ufton, you are helping to support disadvantaged children, giving them the opportunity to take part in residential programmes aimed at enriching and inspiring them.
For an even more personal touch, you could provide your guests with our teddy bear keyrings, Ufton pin badges, wristbands or colouring books (for your younger guests), which all can be purchased for a small fee.
Have a look at our souvenir list for some great inspiration, and as always, on behalf of all the children that you support by holding your wedding here, a great big thank you!
