Now I know these are a bit silly and you’re probably not going to have the patience to sit there icing loads of mini cakes for each of your guests but I just had to share this as pictured on bridal snob. How cute are these mini cake tins? Can you imagine being able to serve them as a wedding favour? I think they are so sweet and I might even be tempted to seek out a cake tin just like this to try them out for myself.

After the success of Black Swan last year and fashion designers like Chloe featuring ballet inspired clothing on their catwalks, ballet has experienced a resurgence in popularity while the beautiful blush tones and romance of ballet are the perfect backdrop for a wedding. Monique Lhuillier and Vera Wang are the place to go for romantic big gowns while these pink satin shoes from bhldn would be the perfect compliment to your dress or if you’re not keen on heels go for a simple pair of satin ballet pumps.

Keep the colour scheme pale with shades of blush, pale pink and cream and maybe a hint of metallic. Check out Martha Stewart Weddings for some great favour ideas like these knotted marshmallows or cake pops which double up as place settings and favours.

If you’re looking for some purse friendly wedding favours, these bubbles will keep both adults and kids alike entertained. You can easily make these yourself, simply fill bottles with bubble mix, include a bubble wand made from coloured pipe cleaners and decorate with ribbons and a pretty label with you and hubby’s name and date of the wedding on.

Cake pops seem to have taken the baking world by a storm and have now become quite a popular substitute to a wedding cake. It used to be all about the cupcake which of course continues to reign supreme but cake pops are a delightful alternative. They offer the perfect size portion of cake for each guest but can also be served in addition to a small wedding cake or as adorable little favours for your guests. Here are some really eye catching ways to display your cake pops. I really love the glass domed cake stand and lid or the whole tiered cake made from cake pops in a graduating colour scheme. Check out Cake Pop People or Lolli Cakes for your own wedding cake pops.

In addition to being lucky enough to be a bridesmaid, I’m also lucky enough to be an Italian bridesmaid as the wedding is being held there next year. The bridal party recently visited Italy (more on this to follow) and while wandering through the cobbled streets of Sulmona, a small Italian village in Abruzzo we came across row after row of shops selling confetti flowers. Confetti flowers or confetti bomboniera is a traditional Italian wedding favour which is essentially sugared almonds or chocolate filled candy wrapped in brightly coloured cellophane which are then fashioned into daisies, butterflies, ladybugs and many other flowers. These cute and quirky candies make brilliant wedding favours especially if you are having a spring or summer wedding. These are available in a wide range of colours including brights like pink or orange or pastel colours like lilac and yellow. In keeping with tradition the flowers contain five almonds that form the petals each representing a wish for health, wealth, long life, fertility and happiness.
