Wedding favours, what to choose for a wedding in Italy.
Today, let’s talk about wedding favours ideas, resolve a few doubts on this topic and give some ideas to help you out.
The choice of wedding favours can put many couples in crisis; the first question is: do we want them or not?
So before you give yourself, a definitive answer, I suggest you read this article all the way through.
What you should know about wedding favours
Before we talk about wedding favour ideas, we need to take a step back and explain their usefulness in wedding planning.
Tradition says that, wedding favours are souvenirs that the bride and groom give to their guests in memory of this special day shared together.
They symbolise a wish of good luck for the couple.
They are a kind thought that the bride and groom have for their guests, and let’s face it… there are some truly beautiful ones that underline a successful wedding.
Wedding favours ideas, per your wedding in Italy.
If you are planning your wedding abroad and are in the process of deciding on Italy, we have plenty of ideas for you!
The wedding favour is not only and exclusively an object that guests post away, but can also take on an important role within the wedding design.
The tradition of sugared almonds
First of all, if you want to get married in Italy, I must tell you about sugared almonds.
Confetti, or sugared almonds, are a tradition widely used in Greek and Italian weddings to represent the ups and downs of life, in the sweet and sour flavour of almonds.
They can also serve as place names.
Generally in our tradition, they are packaged next to the wedding favours and then also served in a specially prepared large buffet.
While in the past sugared almonds were only made from almonds, today we have a huge selection with many flavours.
You can delight your guests with true masterpieces of Italian confectionery.
Choosing wedding favours in line with the wedding style
Among the most important things to keep in mind when choosing wedding favours is style. They should be in line with the style you have chosen for your wedding.
You can also make them perfect in style by choosing suitable packaging.
The important thing is that they are part of a well thought-out design.
Wedding favours ideas, if you are getting married in Italy.
I know the tradition in many countries, especially Anglo-Saxon ones, that favours are often things to eat or drink.
Wedding favours ideas to eat
If you want to keep this custom, you could think of mini bottles of typical Italian olive oil or sweets typical of the area where you are staying.
In Italy we have a great regional tradition of fine pastries.
If you like wine, you could give your guests small bottles of wine for unforgettable tastings.
That way when they return home they will continue to toast to your health.
Ideas for wedding favours to keep.
If you are thinking of items that will remain as mementos of your wedding in Italy, there is no shortage of options.
You could give wedding favours made by Italian artisans such as the Pumo typical of Apulia or small objects made of leather or even small ceramics from Vietri (Amalfi Coast).
Give wedding favours a function.
Whether you choose edible wedding favours or keepsake favours, you could give them a role in the wedding decor.
You could use them as place cards for each guest at the table so you combine 2 things in one: place cards and wedding favours.
The exceptional result is guaranteed.
Wedding favours ideas: my advice.
Wedding favours are a choice of style just like all other wedding things.
You should not consider them as separate objects.
For the best result, while also saving your budget, choose Italian artefacts from artisans in the place where you are getting married.
Italy is rich in typical products wherever you decide to get married and you will have no problem finding the perfect one for you.
Of course, you will always have to take style into account, as I told you at the beginning of this article.
The wedding favour should therefore also perfectly match the wedding venue.
The venue where you decide to get married will define the mood of the wedding and therefore also of the wedding favours.
But don’t worry about that I can help you.
