These cute little boxes can not only be used for wedding favours but also many other special occasions such as Christenings, Milestone Birthdays, Parties and Anniversaries.These lovely favour boxes include Square, Pillows (Bustinas), Chests, Pouches, Tuxedo and a funky Handbag design.
Traditionally wedding favours are given by the couple as a thank you for sharing their special day in a tradition which originates from Italy (where wedding favours are known as Bomboniere). Traditionally the favours contain 5 sugared almonds representing Health, Wealth, Happiness, Long Life and Fertility.
Wedding favour boxes and bags usually form part of the wedding table decorations but they can be used in many other ways for example given out by the Bridesmaids and Flower Girls or presented in favour trays or baskets. While traditionally sugared almonds are used as the filling, it's becoming more usual to use different favour fillings for example chocolates, mints, love hearts, chocolate money, chocolate buttons, jelly sweets, dolly mixtures and non edible gifts. If you are using sugared almonds then around a kilo is enough for 40-50 wedding favours.
