Personalised Plastic Cups as Wedding Favours

Custom plastic cups are a great idea for your wedding reception. They are bright and colourful, sturdy and weather-proof. Not to mention, a great little entertainer for the kids. Personalised plastic cups make a great wedding favour and can be a practical and useful addition to your outdoor wedding reception.

Some wedding favours are very stylised but not very functional. Personalised platic cups as wedding favours are much more practical. If they have handles they are seldom dropped which means no broken glass in the reception hall.

The finish on plastic cups has improved greatly over the last few years to the point where you can get a finish on them that is much the same as polished porcelain.

Because they're so sturdy, they will also last a long time and people will be remembering your wedding day as they take a sip for years to come. All in all, personalised cups are a great way to keep your wedding fun and down to earth. Personalised plastic cups can be found at many Wedding Favour Suppliers in Canada.

Great Ideas for Your Wedding Reception Favors

Your wedding reception favors are meant to be little tokens of appreciation that thank your guests for coming to your wedding and sharing in your special day. They are generally small, yet thoughtful items that serve some sort of purpose even after the wedding is over. Wedding reception favors typically have the names of the bride and groom along with the wedding date printed or engraved on each item or placed in a box or container that is labeled with this information. While your wedding reception favors do not have to be extravagant, they do need to express your appreciation in a simple and thoughtful way.

One of the most popular wedding reception favor ideas are candles with candleholders. These can be in the form of decorative little votives or larger pillar style candles. One of the best reasons to use candles with candleholders is that they can also double as wedding reception table decorations. Placing the lighted candles on the table will add to the overall ambience of the table and also give it that extra special touch of style. Make sure, however, that your guests realize that the candleholders are there for them to take with them when they leave.

Another popular choice for wedding reception favors are decorative boxes or containers filled with chocolates, mints, or other candies. You can choose any type of container you like and have them sitting on top of the plates at each place setting or on a large table near the door. Pretty little tins, glass vases, ceramic plates, miniature baskets, mesh bags, take-out boxes, fabric pouches, flower pots, or anything else you can think of can be filled with little treats. Choose chocolate candy kisses, pastel mints, candy coated almonds, or specially engraved candy hearts to fill the containers with and attach decorative tags or stickers on them to indicate to your guests that they are there for them to take home.

You can also give wedding reception favors that are a little more meaningful and that your guests can use after the wedding. This might include decorative bottle stoppers, engraved key chains, cute little photo frames, paperweights, magnets, or entire gift bags filled with a variety of goodies. No matter what your budget, you can find individual wedding reception favors that will tell your guests you appreciate them for joining you and your new spouse on your special day.

Tired of the Candy Bar?

Just a few years ago, having a luxe candy bar at weddings was all the rage. But now this idea seems a bit overdone. Still, people love being surprised with a second chance at dessert after the wedding cake is served.

So how do you keep them happy while still being full of surprises?

Instead of a candy bar, you can easily and inexpensively create your own donut bar. Donuts are a tasty, different and always welcome late-night treat (especially if there's alcohol being served!). Before the wedding, go to your local donut store and stock up on a wide variety of flavors and colors, ordering about two donuts for every guest (assuming some will eat more than one and some might not have any, it should balance out). Go crazy with sprinkles and colored icing-you want as much visual appeal as is possible.

Then, have your caterer artfully arrange the donuts on silver platters and cake stands. Toss colored flower petals or ribbons around the display. Buy fun pink pastry boxes (enough for 1-2 donuts) so guests can take them home if they don't want to eat them on the spot. This sweet sugary treat is destined to please!
