There’s no denying that weddings can be expensive – whilst you might spend less on one thing for your big day, you’re probably going to spend more than you should on something else (ahem, the dress maybe?).

Don’t worry though, you’re not alone. In fact, most brides and grooms blow their budget. That’s why so many couples are looking down the DIY road – and we love that too!

Making your wedding favours can be a fun and easy way to help save your wedding budget. The question is, what to make? We’ve got some ideas…


Get your apron on and start making cupcake wedding favours! This is a fab favour idea for busy brides-to-be because not only are they super easy, super personal and super tasty, but cupcakes are also freezable.

That means that you can start baking them whenever you have time, even if it is a few weekends before the wedding. Match the cupcake cases and icing to your wedding theme, and why not get some decorations to go on top?


Cookies and biscuits come in batches, so up the quantities and start baking one, two or three for all of your wedding guests – wrap them up in some cellophane with a bit of ribbon and the job’s a good’un!

It’s a cute and extremely delicious way to get your guests smiling, and make your wedding stand out that little bit more with the personal touch of your very own baked treats.

Cake pops

Cake pops are one of the newest cake trends for weddings at the moment, and so much easier to make than you think. Decorate them with coloured icing, paste, sprinkles and sparkles for an ultra fun wedding favour idea.

Why not make that part of your hen party? Get all of your girls decorating! When the day comes, trust us when we say it won’t only be your children guests that love them…


Everyone loves to see a bit of a personal touch to any big day – it’s what will make your special day stand out from other weddings your guests have been to.

That’s why you should really have fun with your wedding favours, especially if you’re making them yourself. How about putting your names or faces on the cupcakes? We have the perfect solution
