Fresh, funky and fruity wedding favour fillings
More and more brides are trying to outdo each other in terms of wedding style and this one-upmanship has hit the world of wedding favours. Any funky bride who wants to keep up with the latest trends has to opt for fresh, funky and even fruity wedding favour filings.
What on earth is a funky favour filling I hear you cry!?
Well, let’s start with what a standard, traditional wedding favour filling is.
Originally wedding favours were only given by the upper classes but this has filtered down to most brides now. The giving of wedding favours is becoming an expected part of a wedding celebration and any kind of favour is always well received by guests.
Traditionally, boxes were filled with special sweets such as Jordan Almonds. Five pieces were given to guests, each having a special meaning; fertility, health, happiness, longevity and wealth. The Italians and the French have been responsible for the bomboniere nets that many brides now give as favours.
Nowadays, sugared almonds and dragees capture most of the market share when it comes to wedding favour fillings, however this season there has been a huge explosion in brides looking for something different.
Love Hearts are an ever-popular choice to fill a wedding favour box with as these encapsulate the sentiments of a special day such as a wedding.
Equally, fruit sweets such as Jelly Beans and Dolly Mixtures are great choices, especially for weddings that have a light, fresh and fun theme.
Flying Saucers and Sherbet look fantastic when presenting in clear containers and finished with co-ordinating ribbon. These are sure to get your guests talking and reminiscing about their childhood.
Some brides are not so keen to provide guests with sugary, highly coloured sweets and prefer to go for something more natural. You can create the same desired effect by filling jars, boxes or tubs with marzipan fruits, preserved fruit pieces, dried fruits, nuts or even jams. As long as your favour fillings are brightly coloured and beautifully presented, your funky, fruity wedding favours are bound to get your guests talking. You could even provide guests with a personalised tub of freshly chopped fruit and point them towards your chocolate fountain! This way they can enjoy the experience on the day and take the personalised container home as a keepsake.
So, when it comes to fresh, fruity and funky wedding favour fillings the key is colour. It doesn’t matter whether you choose to fill boxes, tubs or jars with sweets, sherbets, jellies, fruits or nuts, as long as the overall feel is young, fresh and delicious. Choosing such wedding favour fillings will ensure that your wedding is talked about for years to come – for all the right reasons!
