5 Punny and Edible Wedding Favours you can DIY

Wedding favour options included in your wedding package may not always be the most suitable for your wedding theme.

The thought of DIY-ing wedding favours would have surely crossed your mind, but you may also have given up that thought for fear that you may not have enough time to prepare them. We say, don't give up!

Instead look at how you can prepare quick and easy wedding favours for your big day, that are also punny, practical and edible! Especially if you're planning for a cosy wedding, these ideas will be perfect.

1. Mint to be 

The puns on the word Mint are endless, but we particularly liked 'Mint to be' and 'Commitmint' in this wedding context. Popular with the young and old, mints are definitely a classic in the world of candies!

When we think of chocolate spread, there is only one brand that pops into our heads - Nutella! So, spread the joy and spread love as thick as you would Nutella. 'Nuff said.
