Ideas & Advice
These aren't just easy to make, these wedding favours will be a hit with your guests, too!
For a zippy tropical wedding, pineapple jam (accompanied with a real pineapple!) is a no-brainer, while kaya (or coconut jam) will be a hit with most Singaporean tastebuds.

At singer-songwriter, actor and Singapore Idol 3 winner Sezairi Sezal and events executive Syaza Qistina Tan's private solemnisation ceremony, guests went home with a bottle of iced gem biscuits and a red or blue mason jar with the wedding logo. All you'll need: Sugar, lavender essential oil, vanilla extract and coconut oil to create a soothing concoction that'll pamper your loved ones. See how to make this vanilla lavender sugar scrub, here.

Even better, set up a kacang puteh booth and have your guests help themselves instead! Image: @the.big.bash/Instagram Mason jars are cute but test tubes are a quirky alternative. They can hold anything from candy to honey sticks to spices.

Sweeten the deal with mini marshmallows for a sugary sendoff.

Succulents are hardy and require little maintenance, while herbs will give any one's kitchen shelf a dash of fresh fragrance. Instead of terracotta pots, you can also plant these in mini jars.

For a more personalised and prettier look, create customised packages to hold the seeds. You can download the printables from various sites online, or simply buy paper packets, then paste your wedding stickers on them. Image: @rachie_higgs/Instagram TBH, we just love the punny message. But hey, it's a budget-friendly and delicious edible favour that everyone will love.
