Should we give Favours?

I’m often asked this question by couples…should we give our guests Favours, little presents of thank you.  The answer is really a simple one – it is entirely your choice.  Some couples do, some don’t.  Others tell people that instead of giving a little present, they are donating some money on behalf of each guest to a specific charity.  This is a lovely idea and some guests may consider this to be a better spend of money.

However, if you are hoping to buy a present for your guests.  Here are some ideas….

– Lottery ticket for the day (if it’s on a Lottery Day)

– Candle
