Wedding Favours - from £1.50 each
Wedding favours are often given out as gifts from the bride and groom to their guests as a gesture of appreciation, which are often kept as a memento of the wedding especially by the female guests.
Traditionally they are made up of five sugared almonds representing fertility, long life, wealth, health and happiness. The bitterness of the almond and the sweetness of the sugar coating is also said to represent the bitter sweetness of marriage.
Nowadays the almonds are often replaced with chocolates (Ferrero Rocher and Thorntons being favourites), mints, even jelly beans. Favours can be presented in many ways including decorated boxes (of various shapes and sizes) tulle nets, organza bags, and mini buckets.
As an alternative to sweets, you could treat your guests to a lottery ticket in a little card wallet.
Gift & Card Postboxes - £18.00 each
Postboxes are an excellent addition to any wedding gift table to keep all your cards and small gifts safely together in one place. Guests will know where to put their cards, and you will know where to find them.
The boxes can be decorated to suit your own colours or theme. The panel on the front can be personalised as you wish, with your names, wedding date and a message from you to your guests. The box is finished with co-ordinating ribbon.
Guest Books - £25.00 each
Weddings are hectic, and when you have lots of guests its hard to spend time with everyone on the day. A guest book is a perfect way for your friends and family to write their feelings about the day, a little note with words of wisdom, cheeky quotes or simply "you both looked stunning"! And its a lovely keepsake for you to look back at in days, weeks and years to come.
Decorated simply with co-ordinating ribbon and a printed panel with your names and wedding date on the front.
Wish Trees - POA
As an alternative to the traditional guest book, try a wish tree.
A wish tree is a relatively new concept, and makes a striking centrepiece at your wedding reception. Guests can write their best wishes on tags and attach them to the trees branches. These can then be collected and stored either in a 'wedding wishes' box or book.
Photo Albums - £25.00 each
Similar in style to the guest book, this wedding photo album would be perfect for the informal "snapshots" taken on the day by friends and family, expecially the ones from the disposable cameras, which are a must on any guest table, and the source of many laughs long after the Big Day!
