Filled with sweets, these tins make distinctive favours. Choose a selection of childhood photographs of you and your groom, and make colour photocopies of them. Place the lid over the photocopy, trace around the edge and cut to size. Slip the picture into the lid of the tin and glue a length of coloured ribbon round the base of the tin.

Round favour tins with clear lids, £7.99 for 10, Confetti. Chocolate buttons, £3.95 for 100g, Mortimer&Bennett. Ribbon, £1 per metre, VV Rouleaux. Wedding photographs courtesy of Julia Boggio.
