Wedding favours have become a long-standing tradition at most weddings and are a lovely way to honour your guests on the big day. Wedding favours are small gifts, or tokens, that are given to guests to show your appreciation for their attendance at your wedding. It is believed that this time-old tradition originated in Europe and was initially known as a bonbonniere. A bonbonniere was originally a small trinket box containing sugar cubes or confections.
By and large, the method of presenting favours, and the favours themselves, haven’t changed so much over the years. Sugared almonds, for example, are still a hugely popular type of wedding favour and are often presented to guests in a delicate organza favour bag on the big day. That being said, in recent years, couples have also taken to dreaming up new and unusual wedding favours, including handmade items such as honey or soap, presented in a favour box.
Whether you choose traditional wedding favours or prefer to surprise and delight your guests with something completely new, we stock a wide range of wedding favour boxes, organza bags, favour buckets and men’s favour boxes that are perfect for housing your carefully chosen (or handmade!) gifts.
