How do you say thank YOU to your closest family & friends for joining you on your special day when you tie the knot and say “I Do”?



We know that you’re going to fill your guests up to the brim with scrumptious food and supply with them with an endless flow of alcoholic beverages (or non-alcoholic beverages if that’s your thing!). We also know that you’re most likely going to send them a thank you card after you’ve returned from your ah-mazing honeymoon sunning yourself in Caribbean. But what we’re really asking here is, on the night, what can you give to your guests that will leave them feeling welcomed, appreciated and most importantly, LOVED!

We’ve sat down with two of our favourite local small businesses who have managed to nail custom wedding favours with style & ease. 

We chat with Black Pantry & Electric Eyes on what special custom treats they have on offer to leave your guests feeling somewhat speechless (and jealous) over the thank you present they have left for you. And just add another layer of sweetness to this week’s blog, we’re also giving away a little somethin’ somethin’ from both businesses for two lucky winners who subscribe to our mailing list and follow us/like us on Insty or Facebook. You can thank us later and you can also find the full details of the giveaway at the end of each Q&A.

What do you look for in a wedding favour?

We believe a wedding favour should be unique, stylish and a special one-of-a-kind gift that makes your guests go ‘oh-wow’ when they arrive at the reception of your wedding. We like to think outside the box so when we rock up to a wedding and see a custom wedding favour that we’ve never seen before, we’re like damn that’s good!

List the different scented candles you could create?

How long can the list be? Haaaaa! No seriously, the list is actually endless. We currently have created 9 unique scents under the Electric Eyes brand but we can whip up any fragrance imaginable, it all depends on the brief and what direction we’re wanting to go in for a particular product.

What makes your candles custom?

If you purchase a custom candle from Electric Eyes, you literally won’t be able to get that same candle from anywhere else in the world, pretty sweet huh!? All of our custom products are designed in-house based on the clients brief. We then select a unique vessel to house the candle, again based on the clients brief and we then match a yummy scent, which is generally selected by the client or sometimes by us. Once the business side of things are finalised, we get to work in our warehouse and physically mix & hand-pour every single candle, usually till the wee hours of the night until the order is complete and we can hand over a custom product that we’re UBER proud of. It’s just one big ball of custom creation fun really!

You bet! Again, the list is endless. We can create custom candles, concrete planters, cushions, blankets, throws, baskets…….how long is a piece of string right! Basically, if you want to get creative, then you’ve come to the right place!
