How To Plan An Engagement Party With Jelly Beans

Everyone loves a wedding put sometimes we get tired of seeing the same old wedding favours over and over again. If you want people to be talking about your wedding day for years to come, why not try some of these alternative wedding favour Ideas?

‘Grow Your Own’ Seeds

With a Grow Your Own wedding favour people get to plant an amazing plant or flower and then they get to be reminded of your beautiful day when the flower blooms. You can even go one step further and choose a plant that blooms every year, to serve as a reminder for your awesome wedding.

Flips Flops for dancing

We all love dancing at weddings but, a wedding can be long and tiring, especially if you have sped all day in tight painful shoes. If you give your guests flip flops, however, they can dance the night away without having to worry about pesky heels getting in the way.

A Lottery Ticket or Scratch Card

A scratch card can be great fun because everyone can scratch them and play along together. drinks are on the winner of course!

Personalised Pin Badge

This one is a great way to add a special personalized touch without breaking the bank. You can easily make pin badges at home, and you can choose what to put on them like the date of your special day, the names of the happy couple or you can go a step further and personalize each pin badge with the name of the recipient. This way that doubles up a name placeholder for the meal as well.

A Temporary Tattoo

Now, this is a fun wedding favour that everyone can enjoy. A temporary tattoo is a fun way to give your guest a little reminder of the day. The tattoo might be temporary but the photos of your guests showing off their freshly tatted biceps with last forever.
