From candles to tablet, there’s a whole host of options for your wedding favours. We’ve caught up with Scottish suppliers to hear what’s new
“Robbie and I started Summer Morning Studios in May 2020 when the world was in lockdown as a way to spend our evenings and weekends,” shares co-founder Ailidh McSkimming. “We wanted to create candles for ourselves, but fast forward two years and we’re now sold in various stockists up and down the country, including big names like Urban Outfitters and Skinnydip.” Since marrying in May this year, Robbie and Ailidh have launched a variety of products for weddings, including jar candles personalised with the wedding date and couple’s initials, personalised favours in an array of shapes (pictured above), colours and scents, as well as an assortment of accessories just waiting to feature in your tablescape. Prices from £5 per guest.

“I offer delicious homemade Scottish tablet in a variety of flavours, all packaged in beautiful bespoke wedding boxes (pictured below right),” shares Kristiane Rodgerson from Meemaw’s Scottish Tablet. Her latest flavour launch, Jammy Dodger, sounds like something Charlie would have come across at the chocolate factory, and we’d trade our golden ticket to try it.
