Wedding Favours

Wedding favours are a charming gesture, provide a point of interest and will contribute to the table decorations. They are, however, an added expense.

- Traditionally, five sugared almonds in organza were given to the women, tied with a decorative ribbon. They represent health, happiness, fertility, wealth and long life. This is still a popular and cost-effective choice with many brides.

- Adult favours range from small trinkets to more extravagant monogrammed mementos. The more sophisticated the favour, the more expensive they are.

- Popular favour ideas include: miniature bottles of alcohol, personalised chocolates, decorative candles, key rings.

- Favours designed specifically for men are now available, for example bottle-stoppers, cufflinks and corkscrews.

- Chocolate wedding favours are popular with everybody and don't go to waste as they are usually eaten on the day

- Favours are especially well received by children; sweets or something to play with are good choices.

- Wedding favour boxes are a good way of creating a uniform look and theme for the favours.

- Costs for tasteful and worthwhile favours quickly add up. The bride and groom must work out if the can budget stretch, and what is being sacrificed elsewhere.

- Favours are often forgotten about at the end of the day; some couples request that an announcement is made at the end to remind people to take them.

- Some couples just choose to give favours to the top table or wedding party.
