Cute labels for herb wedding favours to ensure your guests know to take home their wedding favours


Herb wedding favours in flowerpots

Maybe this sounds a bit stupid, but when I saw this picture it reminded me the importance of telling your guests when something is meant to be taken home as a gift.  Many wedding favours are quite obviously there to be taken home – most often than not you find one in your place at dinner with your place card tied onto it.  But more and more of you are getting really creative with wedding favours, and I sometimes wonder whether guests know if they are supposed to take them or not.

I love the idea of these flowerpots planted up with herbs as a wedding favour, especially when they are incorporated into the table decorations (it also saves on money by doubling up table decorations as wedding favours), but will your guests know they’re allowed to take apart the table decoration?

If in doubt, label it clearly in a fun way, just like this couple did for their herb wedding favours, then there’s absolutely no chance anyone can be mistaken.  I can’t imagine how disappointed you would feel if the day after your wedding you found all these beautiful gifts you’d made still sat on the tables.

this is a great idea – we’d been wondering how to make it clear that certain things were given as ‘gifts’ and I’d been considering long-winded notes tied to things saying ‘this spoon is yours to keep’ and other such nonsense! ‘Take me home’ – simple and gets the message across!! Will be pinching this methinks… hehe xx
