We all expect a nice treaty surprise at weddings, don’t we? Well, wedding favours go back to fifteenth century England where the new couple would distribute pretty little love knots made from ribbons and laces, representing their love for each other. The earliest wedding favour in France would include five almonds which symbolized longevity, happiness, wealth, health and fertility. Since then, the favours have evolved and has blended in every wedding tradition around the world. Let’s have a look at some of the important favour items that you can expect to get when attending a wedding there:
Continuing since the old times, Jordan almonds are a must favour item for the Italians. With the evolvement of favours, the chefs would dip the almonds in candy or chocolate, ready to be served to the guests.
Popular in a Spanish wedding, the new couple give detalles to all their guests which includes a bottle of wine and some cigars for the men and a scented present for women.
A Russian wedding includes decorated candles and some very exquisite trinkets. That’s more thangs than what the males get!
The Irish are known for their celebrations so wedding bells that make noise are a natural thought to be given to the guests.
The colourful country, full of culture and tradition, so you can expect a lot of pretty things. Elephants are a big part of Indian culture, so a handcrafted elephant is the item you can definitely find in the favour.
Every part of the country has their own variety of favour items. It’s a tradition that has been carried on for centuries and is still going strong. After all, everybody loves surprise treats, especially when they’re from around the world!
