Personalising your wedding favours

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.

Simply Favours Spring SALE extended

The evenings here in Johannesburg are cool and even some of the days have been chilli.  We decided this is a sign and will be extending our spring sale until the end of November.

We chose a wide selection of our favourite wedding favours and they are now available for at the cheapest prices.

Our gold and silver chair wedding favours have been marked down from R10 to a meagre R7 a favour box.  These chairs are easy to fold and comes with a ribbon and heart charm.  You can even personalise this give by adding a sticker with your initials for R5 extra.

The popular wire boxes are now R15.  Your guests will love the detail of these boxes and you can use the wire favour boxes to add to your décor by inserting a tea candle in them and lighting them just before the bride and groom enter the reception area.  This will create a magical atmosphere that your guests will remember when they look at their wedding favours at home again.

For our eco friendly weddings we placed the bamboo coaster sets on sale.  This set of four coasters are completely degradable and will be the perfect green wedding favour.  They are light and have the extra benefit that it is practical. The coasters are now available
