A true wedding is all about sweet and unforgettable memories. While you will have more than many reasons not to forget your wedding, make it even more special and memorable in the heart of others by giving your guests wedding favours that they would just love and can never forget about. Wedding favours are not only for keeping the wedding alive in the heart and memories of your guests, it is also a way to show your appreciation towards them when they finally leave. Here are 20 amazing wedding favours that your guests will love.
1. Personalized lip balm
A good send off gift especially at a winter wedding and it would cost you much less as well . Keep different flavors on a table and paste your picture or some type of thank you note on the lip balm container.
