The wedding season is right around the corner, and if you’re planning a wedding (your own, a family member’s, or friend’s), you know what that means, right? No, we’re not talking about the celebration, the revelry and the fun, but rather the boxes full of sweets, dry fruits, chocolates, and the ilk, that’re going to be packed, handed over, and then discarded.

If you’ve ever come back from a wedding with one of these boxes, and thought to yourself “I’m going to do something different!”, well, join the club! Despite the tremendous amount of money and energy spent on making them unique and different, the irony is that most wedding favours end-up pretty much the same: an over-the-top flashy, grossly overpriced box mostly filled with some sort of eatables, that ultimately meets its fate in the garbage bin.

Well, not anymore! Read on to explore our ideas for 4 conventional home décor items, that make unconventional yet amazing wedding favours. Things that your friends and family will use and cherish, and remember the wedding by.

1. Candles and Candle Holders

If you’re like us, in that you’re putty for a dimly-lit cozy ambience, then you can never have enough candles and candle holders! And with the winter season upon us, they’ll also make excellent wedding favours. We’d recommend unscented candles as everyone’s taste can vary, plus, one can always use a fragrance diffuser for the aroma. (P.S. – check out our range of exquisite candleware that we’re sure you’ll love #BlatantSelfPromotion ;))

2. Photo Frames

If there’s one thing that’s withstood the age of digitization, it’s the feeling of comfort and belonging created by our memories captured in photographs and displayed in our home. That’s something no amount of Facebook or Instagram photo libraries can replace; which is why we think that photo frames make excellent gifts, time no bar and occasion no bar, and so is the case with wedding favours.

You can also go the extra mile by framing artsy pictures or quirky quotes in them. Or, by sending your closest friends and family their photographs from the wedding to frame. Remember the tons of pictures an army of overpaid photographers click at weddings that are relegated to spare hard drives and dusty albums? Don’t let that be the case with you!

3. Dinnerware and Tableware

A good set of dinner plates, tea cups, or platters, is one of the most useful gifts to give on a wedding – you just can’t go wrong with it.

4. Figurines and Showpieces

This one’s a no-brainer, really. We’ve all got that shelf, or side table, or console, that can do with a snazzy and spiffy showpiece, and an objet d’art – your favourite animal, a monument, or well, something that’s just really pretty – fits the bill perfectly.
