Yeti & The Fox is a simple yet effective pharmaceutical-free solution to the dreaded hangover. With many couples choosing to opt for hangover survival kit-style wedding favours (we love this idea) Yeti & The Fox is a must-have addition. Here comes the science bit! S-acetyl gluthione is the body's main natural antioxidant and immune system booster helping the body stay healthy. When combined with N-acetyl cysteine and vitamin B6, it becomes highly effective and fighting toxins ingested via food and drink. Glutathione is in fact needed by our bodies to break down toxic substance acetaldehyde the offending substance produced as alcohol is broken down by the liver. It's also to blame for liver damage and many of the most hideous symptoms experienced during a hangover. So, with the acetaldehyde-busting ingredient glutathione being at the core of Yeti & Fox it's clear to see why it works!

Cocoa Island, a chocolate shop based in Dorking, has relaunched its wedding services during the pandemic. "We originally started by making bespoke wedding favours for our couples which have been popular since day one of our chocolatier's inception," says the owner Natasha Cocoa. "Then speaking to couples who were needing to postpone their weddings or move them, with budgets becoming tighter as lifestyles were changing, we looked to create something unique, and so our chocolate truffle tower was born. Our seven tiers of handmade chocolate truffles can be topped with a wedding cake, combining the traditional bake with favours for the guests. We're also able to provide personalised truffle boxes, which allows guests to take some away with them as a memory of the day and saves a lot of wasted wedding cake!"

It can be an added expensive, but it's a really meaningful touch and a lovely way to thank your guests. Favours don't have to be just at the table. There are lots of different ways of making your big day personal without breaking the bank. I recommend sticking with your theme and colour scheme throughout the planning process, have fun and make it personal to you.
