Handcrafted wedding favors: a real brand “Made in Italy“
If you’re thinking of an object that will stand the test of time for your guests (and won’t be eaten or drunk at the first opportunity) the option I would recommend is handmade wedding favors.
“Made in Italy” is famous all over the world and I’m sure your guests will be really happy to have such an important object.
Among the things I would recommend (because I really like them) are handmade ceramics.
Mediterranean atmospheres with their unmistakable scents and colours often serve as inspiration for weddings.
Famous are the hand-painted ceramics from Vietri on the Amalfi coast, or those from Sicily.
Ideas for handmade wedding favours include leather gifts that can be personalized with an engraving of your monogram, for example.
