For a boho wedding, you will need some unconventional wedding favours that reflect your artistic personalities, or encourage creativity in your guests.
This list will inspire you to design, create or simply buy the perfect favours for your boho wedding.
1. Get Cooking
Bring out the inner chef in each of your guests with a gift of herbs and spices. You can choose your favourite dish, a meal from the wedding breakfast or something completely different, and create gift packages containing all the necessary spices and herbs, plus instructions on how to use them. This is a really easy and cheap wedding favour to make yourself. Buy the ingredients in bulk and decant into small cellophane bags, glass jars, or even small brown card boxes.
2. Grow Your Own
For outdoor weddings, small plants make lovely wedding favours. Depending on your colour scheme you could give small pots of primroses, pansies or even cacti. Or for a more budget friendly offering, package a selection of seeds into pretty envelopes for your guests to plant themselves. Ask them to send you photos of the flowers blooming to add to your wedding album.
3. Campfire Treats
Half Dozen Design
If you are celebrating your wedding festival-style, set up a campfire to warm guests at the end of the evening, and provide each one with a cellophane wrapped s'mores kit. Include a long wooden stick, marshmallow and two chocolate topped digestive biscuits.
Anything related to candles and incense sticks yells boho chic. You can make your own by decorating glass jars, or take the time-friendly route and bulk buy some pre-made tealight holders, like our tin teacups. If you choose a design with space to attach a name tag, your wedding favour can double as a place name setting, like this miniature birdcage candle holder.
5. Inspirational Quotes
Give your guests the gift of inspiration by presenting them with some of your favourite quotes. You could hand paint them onto pebbles, scribble them on chalkboards, or have pin badges made up.
6. Anything Wrapped In Cellophane
Any gift, no matter how simple, instantly looks better when wrapped in a cellophane bag and trimmed with some rustic twine. Candy floss, coloured popcorn, and penny sweets are all welcome additions to your wedding tables and look dainty and fun tied in a clear wrapper.
You may not hear many admitting to it, but all adults enjoy colouring in. Don't save the crayons for the kids, put together mini art packages for the adults too. Include crayons, a small notebook and a pencil. If you are feeling very adventurous you may want to include water colour pencils and glitter pens too. Then add a little note asking each guest to scribble a drawing for your wedding album.
8. A Classic Book
If you are literary lovers (rather than literally lovers) give classic books as boho wedding favours. Mix up the titles so your guests can trade with each other.
