Top tips for selecting perfect wedding favours

  2. If you are on a strict budget, you could browse through online resources for reasonably priced items
  3. Don’t forget to brainstorm with family members for creative wedding favours

  1. Good Luck Favours

Bamboo favours are unique and also considered a symbol of Good Luck in many cultures. If you’re seeking a stylish yet symbolic wedding favour, go for beautiful ceramic pots with a single bamboo stick or multiple ones that can be arranged in a myriad ways.
