We just unpacked our beautiful Pashmina favours, an added bonus is that they are currently part of the FLASH SALE. Offered at a 50% discount!!!
They are soft and the perfect winters wedding favour. Roll them up and put them in a basket with a personalised thank you tag that reads “To have and to hold and to keep out the cold” or whichever wording you would like to use.
Our pets are such a big part of our lives, it is often quite a debate whether or not they should be a part of the wedding. We say 100% yes they must be a part of your big day!! Not only will these make for beautiful photos, but it makes for such wonderful memories. There are a few things that you must consider before you make your final decision though. We thought we would make a list for you to help.
Personalising your wedding favours just adds that extra special touch that adds to your decor and makes a gift feel so much more special to your wedding guests. We always have a note to say you should contact us for personalisation, today we want to explain your options a bit better to you.
We have an inhouse designer who designs the most beautiful thank you tags, we have a few templates on the site already which you can choose from. We update the templates with your name and date and then we will send the artwork to you for approval. Once you give us the go ahead we send the tags to the printers and have them cut for you. When you receive your wedding favours we will send the personalised thank you tags together with a small plastic loop to allow for easy attaching of the tags.
We also offer engraving on some of our wedding favours. You can send us the personalised message that you want engraved, we will then design the artwork and send it to you for approval. Once this is done the favours are simply engraved and sent to you. This process takes about two weeks from start to finish. The costs involved include R180 for the artwork set up and then R6 per item for the engraving. The engraving is of an exceptional quality and will definitely add a nostalgic element to your wedding favours. Examples of items that can be engraved for you are:
Classic Bottle opener keyring
Hip Flask keyring
Happy Hearts Smiley keyring
Charming Keyring bag charm
Power bank wedding favours
You can also let us know if you want to change the colour of the ribbon on your wedding favours. This option is available at R6 per gift. Simply let us know what your wedding colours are, then we will send you the ribbon in that colour. This is a personalisation option, you can get your family together and ask them to help you quickly change the ribbons.
Please note that we have a minimum order quantity of atleast 30 for any personalisation
We hope this article helped to clear up some of your questions on personalisation. If there is anything we missed, please let us know.
Until next time, happy planning.

Weddings are expensive and it helps to save money where ever possible. Here are a few Do it yourself (DIY) ideas that might make things cheap without compromising on your dream wedding.
If you are a foodie and just can't resist a delicious creamy cheese with a fig preserve after dinner, a cheese stacked wedding cake may just be the perfect cake for you. These cakes are also very easy to make and will cost a fraction of the cost of a designer wedding cake. Refer to our step by step guide on making your own cheese stacked wedding cake.
Then there is your bouquet. Why not ask your mother or a creative friend if they would make your bouquet for you. It would a beautiful reminder later and you will sentimentally think of your beautiful and unique flower bouquet. There are so many options and it truly is not difficult. A bunch of arum lilies surrounded with red roses can quickly be tied together with a rubber band. Then simply wrap a green silk ribbon around the stem to finish off the bouquet.
The options you have to do your wedding favours yourself are endless. You can buy a small cactus plant and plant it in a pail or glass votive. The "pot" you choose simply depends on your wedding theme, whether you are going for a clean and crisp feel or perhaps rustic, these wedding favours will fit in with your wedding seamlessly.
Let us know if these steps helped you or if you did something yourself at your wedding that really made it more special or saved you money.
Until next time :-)
