Wedding favours are small gifts given as a gesture of appreciation and gratitude to guests from the bride and groom during a wedding ceremony, or at a wedding reception.

However, for those searching for wedding favour bags/boxes/jars, or for those who are unsure what to favours they should give to their guests, VIP Functions & Flowers can provide a professional wedding service to help you choose a selection of wonderful favours for your guests.

The History Of Wedding Favours

The tradition of distributing gifts to wedding guests has been followed for many years. For centuries almonds were commonly given to wedding guests to signify well wishes on the bide and groom's new life. Traditionally, Jordan almonds are given in a confection box, or wrapped up in an elegant fabric. This represents fertility, longevity, wealth, health, and happiness. The bitterness of the almond and the sweetness of the coated candy are a metaphor for the bitter sweetness of marriage.

Wedding Favours In The 21st Century

In our 21st century society, these gifts, commonly known as wedding favours can be a wide variety of different items. Some people choose to follow tradition and share almonds with their wedding guests, however some decide to move away from tradition and opt for a different gift for their guests. For example, some couples may decide to give their guests favours linked to the theme of their wedding, or perhaps they might give their guests shot glasses or small jars filled with some of the bride and grooms favourite sweets.

Additionally, in our 21st century society, some couple decide to personalise their wedding favours by adding their names, initials, or wedding date to the gift.
