Ah, weddings- it’s your big day! There’s a lot that goes into a wedding other than marrying the love of your life (lol). Preparation is key and organisation is vital to make the best out of your wedding, not only for the happy couple but also for the guests. Don’t let them leave empty-handed though! With that, here are the best wedding door gifts you can give to your guests that they will actually love and find useful.

They’re known as either door gifts or favours; they are essentially gifts you give back to your guests for attending and celebrating your happiest day. However, we get it that trying to find the perfect trinket is a tricky little thing. Moreover, you don’t want to spend so much money on something that guests will just stow away.

On average, a regular Malaysian wedding (which we all know are very lively and festive) will cost a minimum of RM6000! Therefore, you want to have something that is worth your buck that will also be greatly appreciated.

1. Face masks

Masks are a common feature of modern weddings, so why not make them cute? As a wedding favour, give your guests reusable and washable face masks. Not only will visitors be able to use this item after the wedding, but if you give them out before the start of the party, it will also be a simple method to keep everyone safe!

2. Scented candles

If you like aromatherapy or enjoy treating yourself to a new candle, little candle jars are a charming wedding door gifts option. Your visitors will remember you’re wonderful day every time they burn the candle because the fragrance is linked to memory!

3. Popcorn

Bags of delicious popcorn are always a success as personalised favours, regardless of your wedding theme, season, or venue. To give alternatives for everyone, we recommend presenting a few different tastes in a variety of sweet and savoury flavours.

4. Soaps

If you’re having your wedding outside or during the summer, handmade artisanal soaps are one of our favourite wedding favour ideas. Consider buying them from a local small company or creating your own using scented wax and oils; for the healthiest, allergy-friendly soaps, stick to all-natural materials.

5. Wedding cookies

When in doubt, delicious wedding door gifts are a safe bet. Custom cookies are ideal for serving as a late-night wedding snack or sending home in individual treat bags with your guests. The best thing is that you can have them made in almost any form or style to complement your wedding theme.

6. Chocolate bars

A chocolate bar with an illustrated label is considerably more sophisticated. Whether you like dark or milk, the bars are guaranteed to please sweet-toothed visitors.

7. Flower seeds

Bags of seeds are often associated with development and peace, making them a memorable wedding favour. You can choose whatever flowers you like, but giving a type of bloom that you utilize throughout the day would be very meaningful.

8. Doughnuts

Doughnuts are always a crowd favourite, whether you package them individually or place them on a unique wall display. If they don’t eat them first, your guests will be ecstatic to take these wedding gifts home!

9. Vases

Are you looking for a quick and easy solution to recycle your wedding flowers? Request that a dedicated individual tears down centrepieces and flowers and store them into glass bottles toward the end of the evening. It’s a fantastic way to ensure that visitors take home a memento of the big day and that those pricey flowers don’t go to waste. It may not be common but it’s definitely memorable!

10.  Blankets

If the weather is likely to be cool on your wedding day, provide fleece blankets to keep your guests warm. Make them unique by adding your wedding monogram, date, or initials. Everyone will be reminded of your big day when they snuggle up with the blanket at home after you’ve married.
