Maracas Destination Wedding Favors 2

Maracas are a pretty percussion instrument that originated in Latin America. They tend to be made in bright celebratory colours (although you can have them custom made to perfectly match your wedding theme) and they certainly add a fiesta flair to a destination wedding!

 

Personalised maracas would make unique wedding favours for your guests to have fun with on your wedding day and to take away as a memento. Give your guests their maracas at the wedding ceremony and ask them to shake them wildly when you and your groom have your first kiss! Or brighten up your wedding tables with your colourful maracas as part of each guest’s table place setting.

 

Buy these marvellous musical favours online before you jet off to your abroad wedding or purchase them once you arrive…but only if you’ve already been on a recce to your wedding location and you know for certain that you can pick them up there!

These beautiful badges would be perfect to hand out to your guests if you’re having a mini hen or stag party when you get to your destination wedding location, or simply for your bridal shower back home.

A World Of Thanks Wedding Favour Bags – Clementine Weddings via Etsy

 

If you’re getting married abroad, you might not want to go overboard on favours that will be difficult to transport to your chosen wedding destination. If you are keen to have favours, then a simple and easy idea is to choose little local treats when you arrive at your location, so that you don’t have to bring them over with you.

 

Miniature bottles of local liquor, regionally grown organic olive oil or bundles of scrumptious sweets (not chocolate as they will melt!) will add a little local flavor to your favours which is perfect for a destination wedding and won’t break the bank either!

 

If you want to add a special finishing touch, these destination themed wedding favour bags will keep your gifts wrapped up and looking pretty on your tables and they are really lightweight to take over to your abroad wedding.
