Putting together wedding favour goody bags is a fun and traditional part of planning a wedding. This gives you a chance to use your imagination and bring your personality to the reception tables. Wedding favour boxes can include anything from jelly beans to dice to flowers. Depending on your personal preference, you can be as traditional as petit fours or as modern as miniature plants. Choosing the right kind of favour box or goody bag depends on what you want inside, so decide the contents first.

Beach Wedding Favors

Many brides dream of a beach wedding with a tropical theme. Beach weddings are typically relaxed and carefree, so your wedding favours should fit in with the casual atmosphere. Tropical wedding favours include flower-scented candles, mini-cocktail glasses, beach-themed wine charms, miniature beach pails, shells or decorative bottles of sand. For fun, cheeky gifts, consider personalised lip balm or sunscreen. Guests appreciate wedding favours they can use, so practical gifts like sunglasses or fans are great ideas. Dress them up with a palm-tree shaped gift bag or seashell-shaped box.

Eco-Friendly Wedding Favors

In today's "go green" society, more and more couples are planning environmentally friendly weddings. To keep in line with your organic or green wedding theme, choose favours like wild flower seed packets, plantable confetti flowers, fans made with recycled paper, miniature palm trees, plantable wishing beans or bird seed. Other eco-friendly gift ideas include natural bamboo coasters, recycled paper notepads, flower pots or soy candles. Environmentally conscious guests will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Personalised Wedding Favors

Personalised wedding favours give your guests something special to remember your day. You have a wide variety of favours to choose from and can be as elaborate or as simple as you like. Popular personalised favour ideas are playing cards, matchboxes, silk fans, candy tins, luggage tags, mini champagne glasses, shot glasses, napkin rings and decorative bottles. Almost anything can be personalised online -- from jars of strawberry jam to tea sachets to fortune cookies. Have fun and choose something to make your guests smile.

Edible Wedding Favors

Whether you choose to personalise your favours or not (like fortune cookies or even chocolate-covered candies), edible wedding favours are always a hit. The sky is the limit when it comes to the types of candies, cookies and mints you can fill your goody bags with. Hard candy or mints come in virtually any colour, while frosted cookies can be made to match your cake. Lollipops, jelly beans, Hershey's kisses, peanuts, almonds and chocolate bars are just a few of the edible wedding favours you can choose from. You aren't limited to food either. Many couples offer bags of coffee, tea, lemonade, hot chocolate or cappuccino mixes.
