20 Festive Favours for a Winter Wedding

20 Festive Favours for a Winter Wedding | CHWV

Today we’re thinking all about favours, and what we might give to guests at this festive party.

We love winter weddings. From the romantic ambience to the candlelit dinner and the evening party vibe, a winter celebration has much to offer.

1. Mulled wine

Give your guests a warming treat to take home, by putting together a few essential mulled wine spices.

2. Festive baubles

Baubles make wonderful wedding favours and have the added benefit of looking beautiful on your tables. Add a place name to each one, choosing either identical designs or a range of shapes and colours.

3. Snowflakes

We just love a festive snowflake… as a cookie, ornament, tree decoration or candle. Choose your snowflake favour and go to town!

4. Candy cane

If your colour scheme includes red, a candy cane has to be a strong favour contender. Place on each napkin for an inexpensive, colourful (and edible) decoration.

5. Hot chocolate

Cocoa is the ultimate winter warmer, so send your guests home with everything they need to make a perfect mug, complete with marshmallows.

Alternatively, offer a range of hot chocolate sticks which can be stirred in to mugs of hot milk at the end of the evening.

6. Chocolate coins

It’s that time of the year when we all secretly want to be children and buy bags of chocolate coins. Treat your guest to a few… perhaps with a quirky ‘for richer, for poorer’ tag.

7. Crackers

If you can’t pull a cracker at a winter wedding, when can you? As well as being fun, crackers can also act as place names, and you can adorn them with any colour or design you wish. Why not decorate with some dried flowers?

8. Sparklers

Sparklers look magical in the night sky, and make a great favour that your guests will hopefully use to bid you farewell at the end of the evening.

9. Candles

It’s always a lovely idea to give guests a favour they can enjoy after the wedding, and a candle fits the bill perfectly. Consider buying a few extras to light on the tables after dark.

10. Smores

Smores are bang on trend, and what better time to give them to guests than at a winter wedding. You might even consider having an evening smores bar! Alternatively, put all the necessary ingredients in cellophane bags for your guests to enjoy at home.

11. Macarons

Macarons are a delicious bitesize wonder that goes perfectly with coffee, or anything at all. Choose a festive colour or two and delight your guests. We rather like these black sesame macarons for a winter wedding.

12. Evergreens

Give each guest a tree sapling wrapped in hessian and tied with twine. It’s an eco-friendly favour perfectly suited to a country wedding, and it adds a lovely hint of rich green to your wedding reception.

13. Props

For something a little quirky, and a lot of fun, give each guest a Christmas prop. Cue hours of hilarity, just make sure you have a photo booth to record the poses!

14. Gloves

If it’s a little chilly outside, and you’re expecting your guests to wave sparklers around in the great outdoors, perhaps you might give them a cosy pair of woollen gloves.

15. Pine cones

As well as looking pretty, these pinecone firelighters are dipped in beeswax – just the thing to start a snuggly open fire on a cold winters night.

16. Brandy… or Baileys

Adult guests may well enjoy a ‘tipple’ at the end of the evening. Consider giving miniature bottles of brandy, Baileys or whiskey, or perhaps even homemade sloe gin.

17. Snow globes

Make your own snow globes using Mason or jam jars. Simply glue your chosen figurine to the underside of the jar lid, fill the jar with water and a dash of glycerine and add glitter.

18. Chutney

For an inexpensive and personal favour, get creative and make some miniature jars of chutney. Your guests will enjoy it over the festive season.

A delicious choice for a cosy late autumn or winter wedding. Investigate a few different recipes as an alternative to the traditional toffee.
