About Italian Wedding Favours
The “Bomboniere” is the original name by which Wedding Favours were known, a term which is still commonly used.
It is a Wedding custom that has been practiced in many European countries for many centuries.
Original “Bombonieres” or Italian Wedding Favours always included five almonds.
They symbolize “Luck, in the terms of Health, Wealth, Happiness, Fertility and Longevity”
The almonds were offered to the Wedding Guests in little boxes. The five almonds contained in the traditional “Italian Wedding Favours” came to symbolize the bitter sweet union of marriage and became known as “Confetti”
Nowadays Wedding Favours have evolved to include many gifts given as a keepsake to the Wedding Guests.
