The wedding is over and, the bride and groom are zooming off in their limousine towards their new life together. There on the little dimly lit tables are sweet surprises for the guests. Wedding favours are little gifts from the bride and groom to extend heartfelt thanks to those participating in their joyous event. On the little mats are little porcelain bells, or tiny swans with intertwined necks, or even miniature fruit candy filled baskets adorned with the names of the bride and groom as well as the date of the wedding. Each little favour is a unique reminder of the wedding, the bride and groom, the date, and all the memories created during the ceremony and the reception. The wedding favours are tiny slices of happiness that a guest can take home with them.
Wedding favours should be as unique and well thought out as the wedding couple themselves. The world-wide search for a compatible wedding gifts can be akin to choosing a wedding dress or wedding flowers. It can be a daunting task for the bride and groom without a few smart and savvy tips. Choosing a wedding gift should reflect the style of the bride and groom as well as the wedding. It should remind those attending of a wonderful, fun, joyous day that began as two people walked down the aisle apart, and left hand in hand to a new future. Wedding gifts don’t have to be expensive, just well thought out. The ribbons on each gift should match the colours of the wedding itself. The tiny figurines should echo the style of the cake or the bride’s dress accordingly. The wedding favour should be an article of reminiscence, a bubble of time held in the palm of the hand.
Choosing a wedding gift shouldn’t cause stress or extraordinary effort, it should be simple and cute, and most of all memorable. It should remind those who receive it of the wedding day as well as the bride and groom. A great wedding favour has personality, cuteness, and especially thoughtfulness. The wedding favour is like a little piece of the wedding that its brought home with the guests. Favours come in many forms, tiny hearts filled with love, images of swans, tiny pictures of a man and his wife in silver frames, or even graceful figurines of a man and wife entwined in a little dance. These things are inspired like a painting is inspired, something that leaps to the bride and groom’s mind as they are choosing a little gift that they give out. All throughout history a wedding favour has been made out of precious things, silver or gold, or even precious jewels in royal weddings. A modern wedding favour doesn’t have to be so ostentatious, but it has to be a special little reminder of a wonderful wedding day that the guests took part in. Each wedding favour is like a tiny time capsule that captures the happiness of a couple, and brings it home.
