A rustic themed wedding offers many opportunities for beautiful rustic wedding favours – from homemade treats to gifts from nature. Let’s take a look at a few of our favourite ideas.
Rustic and homemade go hand in hand, so give each guest a personalised jar of homemade jam. You can even work with the time of year and pick a seasonal fruit.

Instead of placing jars on individual table settings, create an impressive display, giving your guests a number of flavours to choose from.

Honey is a lovely alternative to jam. Try to source local honey and present with a honey dipper and a personalised tag.

For a wonderfully thoughtful favour, add scones to the mix, giving guests a breakfast treat for the following morning (or late-night munchies on the way home!).

Gifts from nature
Anything natural fits well in to a rustic theme, from plants and flowers to pine cones and wooden tags. Pine cones are a lovely choice for autumn and winter weddings. Make ‘pine cone fire starters’ by dipping your cones in molten wax.

Tree saplings make lovely favours. There’s something rather romantic about giving something that will grow… as your love blossoms!

Plant favours are a great idea. Presented in the centre of each table, they also act as a table decoration.

Favours don’t have to be grand gestures. We love the simplicity of this single bloom with a precious, personalised name tag.

Miniature pots of lavender add fragrance and colour, and work well as rustic wedding favours.

As natural as can be, we love these wooden place cards. Doubling up your place cards to act as favours is a great way to save money.

As an alternative to plants and flowers, give each guest a packet of seeds, presented in a rustic paper envelope. Elegant calligraphy is the perfect finishing touch.

We all love fudge! It fits the rustic wedding theme with its natural colour. All you need is a cellophane bag and some string. Delicious!

Smores are bang on trend, and this simple presentation is well suited to a boho style.

Popcorn? Yes please! Give your guests a bag of popcorn to enjoy with coffee, or a jar of kernels to take home and pop themselves!

Complement your rustic wedding ideas by wrapping any favour in hessian or brown paper. We’re particularly fond of these crackers adorned with dried flowers.

Who would have thought a brown paper bag, fastened with a peg and a paper doily could look so stylish? The beauty of this idea is that you can fill the bags with anything at all – perhaps offering different gifts for your male and female guests and colouring books with pencils for children.

A heart made from hessian looks oh-so-pretty presented on a crisp white napkin.

In autumn and winter months, give your guests a sparkler for use after dark. Brown Kraft paper gives the rustic touch.

These hessian bags are cute as can be. Fill with sweets or chocolates to delight your guests.
