Show your guests that your destination wedding is first class with these chic and unique, wedding favour ideas.
Not only are they pretty, but they’re practical too; unless you source your favours on arrival at your wedding destination, you will need to carry them out with you and your guests will need to pack them and bring them home too – so in this instance, size matters!
Blinded by our love
Inexpensive sunnies make a fun favour for an outdoor summer wedding.
Heart shaped, brightly coloured, comedy or personalised shades will not only ensure that your guests can keep their peepers on you throughout the whole day, but they’ll make for some great photo opportunities too.

Perfect for a destination wedding – keep your female guests cool and looking fantastic with pretty fans as favours.
Under my umbrella
Your guests will be in need of some extra shade at the hottest wedding of the year!
Having a collection of paper parasols at the ready to create some cool, will ensure you have everything covered on your big day.
Keep your hat on
Let the the guys feel like they’ve scored a hat trick by supplying a selection of hats – straw hats, panama hats and trilby’s will leave your male guests brimming with style.
Check out Primark for cheap and cheerful finds.

Add a little local flavour to your favours by sourcing your gifts once you arrive at your wedding destination.
Spanish sangria in glass bottles shaped like bulls (We know…cool right?!), Italian bottles of herb infused olive oil, ceramic pots of regional rock salt, dainty bags bursting with locally sourced fruits, sweet treats and cakes or chunky jars filled to the brim with local honey, marmalade or jam – all make thoughtful (and delicious!) favours for your tables.

Your guests may have got their dancing shoes on, but do them a favour and supply flip flops!
They can kick off their heels and dance the night away – pain free – plus, they can use the flip flops on the rest of their holiday and they are light and easy to pack and take home.
A useful gift for the girls; let them check that they are mascara smudge and shine free with button mirrors and reflect your style with personalised messages and prints.
The mirror featured (below left) also come as a handy bottle opener version (below right) if you want a matching favour the guys.
Follow the map to my heart
Calling all jet setters! Follow a map or travel wedding theme through to your favours with personalised or map printed luggage tags or decorate your tables with mini map print notebook favours and handwrite a personal note or memory on the inside front cover for each guest to treasure afterwards.
How about these map print hip flasks as gifts for the men in your bridal party too?
We totes love these cotton tote bags! They come in so many different varieties and prints and you can get personalised ones too; plus they are totes (*sigh* Sorry, we can’t help it!) practical too.
If you’re having a beach wedding, opt for the beach quote variety. Imagine every time your guest goes on holiday and they use their bag for the beach – they’ll think back to memories of your special day.
Hang a bag on the back of each chair or fold into neat squares and display on your tables.

We hope that we have given your wedding favours some destination inspiration.
Gift ideas such as the sunglasses and parasols will guarantee you some fun in the sun photographs and we know that your guests will make a point of packing the tote bags and flip flops if you have them as favours at your w-day.
Will you go with any of the ideas we have featured or have you found any other fantastic fly away favours that you could share with us? We’d love to hear from you and read your comments.
