We suggest that no time will be better than the time you have in quarantine to plan and make things happen for your wedding. After all, this is the time to prepare for your wedding planning!

To give you a little push, we put on our thinking caps and came up with a list of super-easy mehendi favours for you guys to try at home for your #intimatewedding!

DIY Mehendi Favours For Guests

Create Fun Bookmarks

Bookmarks are the easiest favour one can create. You literally just need paper, colorful pens and your imagination to fabricate something which can be used for years to come. If you’re one hell of a traveller then cut out maps to create bookmarks or you can always take the classic route and simply use some brown paper and write famous quotes or something you wanna say to your guests. The options are so, so many y’all!

Coasters For The Win

A coaster is something that is very practical to gift and easy to create. If you’re going for a vintage vibe for your mehendi favours, we would recommend trying the wooden or the burlap coasters. Or, you can always opt for the cutesy heart-shaped cardboard coasters. But, if you want a tad bit fancy, you should definitely try your hand at the acrylic or the epoxy resin coasters. People, your guests will find this to be the most unique favour and you would no longer have to spend a bomb. A total win-win!
