Lotto tickets or lucky scratch cards have long been two very popular wedding favours in Ireland. The idea behind it is to celebrate the vow the newly weds have exchanged - "for richer or for poorer". It also has the meaning to share the luck to everyone on a loving and romantic day.
Mulled Wine Spice Mix for Winter Weddings
If you are having a winter wedding, a sachet of mulled wine spice mix would be an awesome idea as wedding favours to give.

Needless to say, the magical nostalgic effect the mulled wine has will keep your wedding as a great memory alive in everyone’s heart.
Sachets of Sweets for Kids
Making sure every guest enjoys your wedding party is important, but the young guests are easily overlooked. It is almost inevitable to have kids at your wedding, that’s why it is worth investing in some wedding favours specifically for your young guests. A goodie bag that has a variety of sweets, finger toys, and lollipops will be something the kids truly enjoy. Placing the goodie bags on each child’s seat will definitely surprise them!
Irish Handmade Candles
Candles have long been a popular choice of wedding favours. Choosing an Irish brand that does handmade and artisanal candles would be an extra touch to make your wedding favour more special. You can even go a step further to choose the scent that resembles the scent of your wedding candles. This way, you’ll be creating a nostalgic effect when your guests light up their own after the wedding. What an exceptional idea!
Customised M&M's Chocolates
A lot of couples like giving out chocolates or other confections as their wedding favours. Why not give out one that can be customised? With the famous M&M’s, you can personalise your M&M’s chocolates by choosing the colour, the print, whether you want to do texts, dates, or even your own faces on the little chocolate buttons. They even offer different types of wedding packaging such as test tubes, tiny champagne bottles, etc. It is such an unique wedding favour choice and momento for your guests to indulge in.
Hangover Survival Kits
A fun and thoughtful wedding favour idea is hangover survival kits for your guests. Ensuring your guests to enjoy themselves also means they will be drinking lots of great wine. Throw in some mints, candy or protein bars, painkillers for headache, etc. These small gifts being packed inside the kit can also be used or eaten even if your guests are not hungover. For those who are, they will definitely appreciate this “care basket” that you gifted.
Plants, including flowers, can be more than just the wedding bouquet or your wedding decoration. Mini potted plants have been more popular recently in Ireland to give as wedding favours. Mini succulents are especially popular due to the fact that they can survive extreme weather conditions and are easy to take care of. They also signify the long lasting love between you and your soon to be husband or wife.
