DIY wedding favors

DIY Wedding favour boxes

Sweet treats make very popular wedding favours and there is a huge selection of ready to buy  available. But as the saying goes "The devils in the detail" and I've yet to meet a guest who couldn't appreciate a personalised or made with love wedding favour..

Meanwhile, if you want to save some money check out the fab A spoonful of sugar site for a free template and tutorial on how to make these chocolate boxes which would make great wedding favour boxes.

Simply fill with individual chocolates or other sweets of choice.
 With the emergence of a slew of "Olde Style" traditional sweet shops it's easy to personalise the boxes, from black jacks to Aunty Mary's favourite pear drops.

My favourite idea (inspired by the photo lol!) is to fill with chocolate coins. I remember my mum telling me about the Irish wedding tradition called "The Grushie" which basically involved the groom  tossing a handful of coins to the wedding guests which was thought to bring both prosperity and good luck to the new groom and his bride.

Maybe include a slip of paper in the box, along with the coins, explaining the Grushie tradition.

I think the addition of a small personalised label would add to the professional look to the favour.

I love this cute diy favor box from poptastic bride visit the blog to get the printable template and tutorial.
Poptastic bride also offers a free template and tutorial for a diy "just married "garland.
