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.
