So what are wedding favours? Traditionally given from the bride and groom to the wedding guests to say thank you providing a keepsake of their special day for guests to cherish. The origins came from France in the 16th century; where the aristocracy would give delicate jewel encrusted boxes (bonbonnières) containing sugared almonds or sweets, at their opulent parties and weddings.
Why Sugared almonds; it was thought that the bitterness of the almonds and the sweetness of the sugar symbolised the bitter-sweetness of marriage. Since then there has been question as to whether it is necessary to have wedding favours. There is so much choice but ultimately the decision of course is down to the couples preference taste and budget.
Its important to note that the 5 sweet almonds reflected a thought behind marriage and whilst not as popular now they carry sentiment of Health, Happiness, Wealth, Fertility and Long Life. Wedding favours should reflect the couple getting married and their personality. Guests want to feel as if they are in a world of the bride and grooms creation.
We are looking to supply other types of wedding favours and launch our wedding page on this site soon; so watch this space!
