Wedding Favours - Why, What And When?
Author: Miss Monogram
If you're a bride-to-be, gift-giving can get out of hand, on your wedding day. There are gifts for the bridesmaids and ushers, a little something for the mother of the bride, and then there are wedding favours also known by their fancy word bonbonnières.
What exactly are wedding favours - and why do we give them?
Think of wedding favours as the grown-up version of party bags! But rather than sending each guest home with a piece of cake and a toy, put some extra thought into making it special.
Created by the French, Bonbonnières generally contain sugared almonds but generally not the jewel-encrusted boxes the people of France so admired.
These days, all sorts of weird and wonderful gifts are given, from candles and adult colouring books, to bottle-openers and bubbly.
Here are a few ideas for wedding favours on your wedding day:
Edible Flower Lollipops
These are quite divine! Each clear lollipop contains a beautiful edible flower, and can be labeled with the recipient's name.
Wedding Day Scented Candle
Yes, your 'wedding day' now has a smell - floral and fruity apparently!
Personalised Lego Figures
Very trendy right now! These Lego figures generally represent the bride and groom. However, if your wedding party is small, you could go for personalised figures of each guest.
Cookies, cake-in-a-jar, home-made sweets . . . beautifully presented in little boxes or tied with ribbon. Alternatively, personalise your own Fortune Cookies.
Not quite as inspiring or creative, but it could make one lucky guest rich!
Monogrammed Keyring or Luggage Tag
Thoughtful, personal and useful - what more could you ask for! Choose a supplier that specialises in monogramming quality leather items. They will most likely have a wide range of possible gifts, with keyrings and luggage tags particularly popular as wedding favours.
When choosing your wedding favours, select something personal that shows you care; something lasting to remind your guests of your happy day.
Wedding favours are generally presented on each place setting, before your guests arrive.
