Unique Wedding Favours Available In The UAE
Wedding Favours In The UAE
Are you looking for something slightly different as your wedding giveaway? Tired of the traditional sugared almond? Check out our list of unique wedding favours available right here in the UAE.
Having a box of matches around the home always comes in handy. Some people even collect matches from around the word when travelling. We love these purple personalised matchbox wedding favours by Dubai-based stationery designer Ritu at Creative Box.
Personalised notepads from Love Notes UAE
Dubai-based stationery designer Emma from Love Notes UAE creates bespoke gifts that not only celebrate special people and occasions, but are also remembered well after they’re opened. Why not opt for a personalised notepad as a unique gift for your wedding guests? You can include your favourite love quotes, your wedding monogram and more.
The Evil Eye
The history behind the easily recognisable Evil Eye stems from a belief that an envious look or glance will bring bad luck or, even worse, inflict a curse upon the recipient. It is worn in the hope that it will ward off bad luck and evil spirits. Popular in the Middle East, these favours are a nice touch at a UAE-based wedding. Our founder Rio incorporated them into her wedding along with other favours displayed in a gift bag. Rio’s evil eye pendants were purchased from Dragon Mart, International City.
Tea for Two
Everyone loves a good cup of tea, so why not treat your guests to your favourite loose tea, wrapped up in packaging that complements your wedding theme? A perfect way to say thank you. These pink tea favours were used at the wedding of Bride Club ME founder Rio. The tea and packaging were sourced and made by Celebrations Weddings and Events, based in Dubai.
Edible favours always go down a treat at weddings, and toffee is no exception. The Dubai-based Toffee Princess specialises in handmade luxury tablet-style fudge in just about every flavour you can imagine. Whatever your special occasion, they can tailor their favours to match your theme and colour scheme.
CDs with your wedding soundtrack
Custom wedding CDs are the perfect favour for your guests to take home and cherish forever. Listening to your custom CD will remind guests of the awesome time they had celebrating your nuptials. You can purchase a pack of CDs from most supermarkets in Dubai and have personalised covers made by any of our stationery vendors listed here.
Keep your guests cool during your outdoor wedding with a pretty flare fan. Fans can be customised according to your preference. Dragon Mart, near International City in Dubai, sells fans, and if you want to customise them, Ritu from Creative Box can create mini belly bands with your wedding date or monogram. The fabulous boutique store IGifts JLT, based in Dubai, also sells the prettiest vintage-style fans.
Want to add some fun to your wedding reception? That’s easy! Hire a caricature artist to create a work of art for you and your guests. Caricatures are fun, playful and unique in this region. You can have the caricature artist perform live during your wedding cocktail hour or reception while guests are mulling around enjoying a canapé or two. Better yet, caricatures make fantastic wedding favours and gifts for your friends and family.
If you’re wondering where to hire a brilliant caricature artist right here in the UAE, we recommend contacting Matt Ryder of Matt Ryder Caricature.
An eco-friendly, crowd-pleasing option, mini succulents have seen a lot of love on Pinterest lately. They can double up as a place card and wedding favour all in one, and won’t be discarded easily. Home Centre has some cute fake succulents that look very authentic, or for the real deal, you can visit the Dubai Garden Centre. Style them up with pretty tags or colour ribbon around the base of the pot.
