For couples seeking a unique wedding day that provides a contrast to the traditional church ceremonies, beach weddings are hugely popular. Although flowers, music and catering all have to be considered, wedding favours are an opportunity to give your guests something to take home to help them remember the special day they've shared with you. If you are getting married in Cyprus then there are plenty of options for exciting and fun favours that your guests will absolutely adore.
Just because you’re having a beach wedding, there is no reason you can’t opt for traditional favours such as chocolates and sweets. On the other hand you could embrace Cypriot culture and put a regional spin on your wedding by offering favours such as a Cypriot olive oil, or a pot of Cypriot honey. For those with a sweet tooth, why not choose favours to showcase traditional Cypriot baking like baklava, or small cakes. Another advantage of locally-sourced favours is that they won’t take up space in your already strained baggage allowance.
You could also embrace the beach theme and give guests a souvenir to remember the event. Useful favours to help your guests keep their cool under the Cyprus sun include paper fans or sunglasses, while tea-light lanterns can be lit during or after the ceremony and create a wonderful romantic atmosphere. Just don’t forget to provide the tea-lights too! Wedding favours like seashells or pebbles from the beach can be personalised with each guest's name and wedding date and even double up as place cards. Other personalised favours like miniature messages in a bottle, complete with sand from the beach or Cyprian wildflower seeds let your guests take a little bit of this beautiful island home with them.
