Etsy Faves: Wedding Favours

Etsy Faves: Wedding Favours

If you’re stuck on what to give for wedding favors, better take a look at this list. I scoured through one of my favourite sites and found some unique and affordable wedding favors you and your guests may love!

Seed Bombs

I love these cute little eco-friendly favors! If you don’t know what a seed bomb is, they are flower seeds encased in 100% Recycled Paper pulp. Just plant and take care of it like a normal seed and you’ll have a pretty new addition to your windowsill or indoor garden. I found these ones by The Big Rock Paper Company and each favor containing 5 seed bombs starts at around $2! That’s so cheap for something your guests can enjoy for a long period of time. The seller has several seeds for you to choose from and different colours of ribbon to customize your order.

Customized Polaroid Magnets

These are super cute. Kelly O’Neill creates mini Polaroid style magnets with your picture on it, as well as a short caption underneath. All you have to do is provide her with the photos and she designs, prints, mounts them on sturdy foamcore and attaches a magnet in the back. They all don’t have to be the same photo either… you can send her up to 5 different ones so you can have an assortment to share with your guests. If you order 50 or less, each magnet will cost $2.25 but order more and it can cost as low as $2 per piece! If you’re interested in finding out more about this company, visit their main website.

Heart Ornaments

I love these pretty ceramic heart ornaments by Prince Design UK.It’s $15 for 5 ornaments and comes with a coloured thread of your choice. Elizabeth Prince, the designer, imprinted the texture of vintage lace onto the surface of the clay and once cut into individual hearts, each pattern will be slightly different and unique. I think these favors will be a great addition to a vintage themed wedding and can be used by guests as decorations during the holidays. She also creates ornaments in other shapes or patterns, as well as other ceramic art, so feel free to peruse her shop.

Hope these suggestions helped! Which one of these is your favourite? If you’ve got some Etsy finds you’d like to share, feel free to leave a comment below!

    I have a small obsession with anything Etsy related. I wish that it was around when I got married.
