With wedding season in our midst, Moi Decor now offers a range of trés chic, affordable wedding favours (also known as bonbonnieres).
A wedding favour is an optional, but small thank you gift for your wedding guests (usually, but not always, for the female guests). Many years ago, French and Italian aristocrats would send their wedding guests home with a small bonbonniere, filled with 5 sugared almonds. By passing the gift onto their guests, the newlyweds were seen as handing over some of their ‘love luck’ to their guests. The 5 almonds represented Health, Wealth, Happiness, Long Life and Fertility. The wedding favour has evolved since, like a keyring or sweeties is preferable to an ornament-type gift. To see what favours we have instore, visit us at our Parkhurst or Pretoria shops!
