Do yourself a wedding favour

The countdown is on. Your big day is in sight, and youve probably got a to do list as long as the train of your dress. However, on eBay there is a range of wedding favour bags, pouches and boxes of all styles, to make your decision making as easy as a walk down the aisle.

Wedding favours history

Wedding favours came to Australia originally from Europe and theyre traditionally given to say thanks to your guests for sharing your special day. Originally, guests received a small bag or box containing five sugared almonds representing the five blessings of health, wealth, happiness, long life and fertility. However, nowadays your wedding favours can be anything you like, depending on your style, budget and personality.

Gift bag or boxes

Wedding favours are a lovely way to decorate your reception tables and delight your guests as they arrive at their tables. Rustic and vintage style weddings are on the rise, so the demand for burlap, lace and organza used in decorations has soared. Youll find burlap bags and craft boxes with lace and ribbon details that might have you saying, ‘I do. These fancy or rustic linen, burlap or organza gift bags are best filled with little candy treats.

The art of gift giving

If you love to paper craft you might want to consider a pretty birdcage gift box made of card, with gorgeous cut out detailing, to carry your treats in.

Something to entertain the nippers

If one things for sure at a wedding, its that the little darlings attending will be 100% bored if you dont keep them entertained at all times, so a childrens activity bag or box is a godsend to you and all the potentially frazzled parents at your wedding. Pack in colouring in books, wind up toys, dinosaurs, jewellery, or even wedding favour bubbles. Anything thatll keep them entertained and happy.
