"Come but for friendship and take away love."    Thomas Moore


The presentation of a wedding day token is an adaptation of a 16th Century French custom that was reserved for nobles and kings. The objects wre originally of great value; gold precious stones, ivory, mother of pearl or porcelain. When introduced into other European courts, handmade lace, hand-blown glass and sugar coated candy were often substituted.

Favours today can add a special touch and tradition, especially if it represents a specific culture or family history. Sugar coated almonds, usually wrapped in lace or a netting, of five, represent the five wedding wishes. Chocolate roses or other chocolate delicacies are sometimes substituted. Personalized with your name and wedding date, these momentos add a charming touch to the festivities and make yur wedding even more memorable to those who attend.
