Who wouldn’t want to have a winter wedding? The holiday season is making everyone jubilant and snow is falling, making everything a white winter wonderland, perfect for a white wedding! While we’re sure the big things are taken care of, the little details can really add a seasonal sparkle. Here is a list of the perfect winter wedding favours!
Personalised Lip Balm
Winter is the season of chapped lips, and if you lose lip balms as frequently as I do, a new one is always welcome. You can pick flavours to match your theme or you and your new partner’s favourite flavours!

Imagine if your guests could go home after the celebrations and indulge in hot, melted chocolate covering crackers and marshmallows? They’d love you so much they’d probably want to marry you too! This cute, little kit makes the perfect winter treat for roasting over the fire.

Why stop at S’mores, chocolates are delicious any time of the year! Get personal and write your guests names on the chocolate, give them a winter theme with angel and snowflake shapes.

Pine Cone Candles
What’s more wintery than lighting a candle on a cold, dark night? How about lighting a pinecone candle! A unique twist on a popular gift and smells great too! Give these a personal touch, write a message with each or pair them with a box of matches, just like your new partner, one of these could be the ‘perfect match’!

Winter is perfect glove weather! A practical as well as a thoughtful wedding favour. Now when your guests go to warm up their frozen hands they’ll be reminded of your beautiful wedding day! Glove come in a range of styles and colours, so choose pairs that perfectly reflect your big day.

While we’re on the subject of getting warm and cosy, why not treat your guests to a soft, warm winter blanket! Chunky knits are very popular at the moment and choose colours to go with your theme!

Hot Chocolate and Tea
Get creative with your choice of beverage here! Hot chocolate looks absolutely too sweet in mason jars paired with marshmallows and cocoa powder. If you’re leaning towards tea, another great winter brew, consider pairing it with festive tea infusers or personalised tea bags. For both these drinks you can choose between a wide range of flavours, have fun with it and choose flavours that reflect your wedding!

If you think your guests prefer something a bit stronger, then why don’t you send them home with the perfect winter drink! Mulled wine requires a bit of warming up, so perhaps give your guests hand written instructions to ensure they get it right, or to save that step, give them already hot mulled wine in a thermos!

As a maid of honour I found it very hard to suggest wedding favours that would fit in great with a winter themed wedding. The above were by far the favourites but being a chocolate addict, the bride ended up chosing the s’mores made with Lily O’Brien’s chocolate.
