Ditch sweets or dry fruits as wedding favours. Go for these modern options instead

When it comes to marriage preparations, you have a lot of things to look into. Let us make deciding on wedding favours easier for you. Pick from these expert recommended gifts.

Guests today are probably tired of receiving the same old box of sweets or dry fruits as wedding favours. Why not experiment with a range of gifts, and also include creativity and customisation? Kunal Rai, Head-Events and Weddings, Tamarind Global, and Innayat Khubchandani, Innaz Communique, show you how:

* Scarves: Items that keep your guests warm and fuzzy are not only practical, they are thoughtful too. Pashmina scarves, handmade shawls or mulmul razai are perfect for fall or winter weddings. You can customise the shawls with the initials of the guest. During summer, the pashmina fabric can be replaced with mulmul and summer prints.

* Premium chocolates: Sweeten the deal and treat your guests to fine, delicate and select chocolate. You can even get customised chocolates that are monogrammed with couples initials or the wedding logo.

* Leather goods: Some trendy and practical favours which have been quite frequent at recent weddings are leather gifts such as monogrammed travel pouches and customised passport holders.

* Kitchen items: Sets of cups, tableware or a classic teapot -- they can all serve as contemporary, practical and usable gifts.

* Personal care: Personal care kits are often customised and given on the first day of the celebrations so that guests at destination weddings can make use of these instead of the hotel toiletries.

* Favours for wedding functions: Another trend is to integrate favours into the wedding functions and themes. For instance, the mehendi function can have an entire designated area where guests could choose giveaways that were relevant to the function. You can have Kolhapuri chappals, bangles and dupattas.
