Creative Wedding Favour Ideas for your Rustic Wedding

The wedding favour is a small gift each guest can take home from your wedding as a keepsake, think of it as a grown up party bag. Traditionally, a wedding favour was five sugared almonds, often presented in a pretty box or bag. Nowadays, these treats can be anything from a personalised cup-cake to a jar of jam or a selection of cookies. The favour should be an extension of your wedding theme, always suiting your chosen venue and colour scheme. Let’s take a look at some of our favourite rustic wedding favour ideas for barn weddings.


Sweet as…

Stick with the theme of nature and present each of your guests with a jar of honey to take home. If you can find some from a local supplier, all the better, and add a label for a touch of personalisation.

Crackers aren’t just for Christmas. Wrap a few treats in natural paper and adorn with a sprig of dried flowers. If you’re watching the budget, you might just give these to your female guests.

Tastebud Treat

Giving an edible sweet treat is always popular as guests are likely to enjoy them there and then. This isn’t really a keepsake, but you can always attach a personalised note or label that guests are sure to save.

Blooming Marvellous!

In a barn surrounded by countryside, giving a packet of flower seeds seems very apt. We love this idea where seeds are presented in a wheelbarrow with a romantic sign.

The Classic Choice

For a more traditional favour, give each guest a bag or box filled with sweet treats. This natural design would look lovely in barn wedding venues.

The Single Stem

Everyone loves fresh flowers, so why not give them as a favour. Single stems presented in individual vases look lovely on your tables and can be taken away at the end of the night.

Mix It Up

For a chocolate treat with a difference, give each guest a dipped spoon that can be stirred in to warm milk or coffee. It’s unusual, looks pretty and they can keep the spoon as a memento!

Your Greatest Fan

On a warm summer’s day, give each of your guests a fan. They will appreciate it during the day, and take it home as their wedding gift.

And Finally…

Practical and fun, why not offer flip-flops to your female guests at the end of the wedding breakfast? They will all relish the opportunity to take off those heels before hitting the dance floor!
