Wedding favours are keepsakes given by newlyweds to their wedding guests to thank them for sharing their special day. They are not necessary but are becoming more popular as a great way for the couple to thank their guests.
Wedding favours have been given to guests for centuries and by many different cultures. The first favours were small fancy boxes made from porcelain, crystal or gold and were filled with bonbons, chocolates or other confections. These small gifts were known as bonbonieres and were only given to the social elite.
Since then, wedding favours have become more popular and couples are being more creative with their selection. There is such a wide variety of favours that even a small budget wedding can find a great wedding favour.
Some of the more popular items include wine stoppers, chocolate covered almonds, picture frames, candles, coasters, personalized mint tins, sachets, themed favours, and personalized keepsakes. Favours have also been created to coordinate with any themed wedding. Some of the more common ones include Beach Theme, Destination Theme, Las Vegas theme, Poker Theme, Winter Theme, Calla Lily Theme, Asian Theme, Garden or Spring Theme, and many more.
The possibilities are endless and are only limited by the creative ideas of the bride and groom. However, because there are so many choices, some couples have a difficult time choosing a wedding favour. The important thing to remember is that what you give to your guests should be a reflection of the couple. It doesn’t matter what the wedding favour is, as long as it makes your guests reminisce about the wedding couple and the day they were married!
See you next week!
