Wedding favours are delightful, creative, and thoughtful gifts given to guests at weddings as a token of appreciation from the newlyweds. These little keepsakes are not only a way to express gratitude to the guests but also serve as a memorable reminder of the special day. Among the myriad of options available, miniature bottles of gin have gained popularity as the ideal wedding favour, epitomising a blend of sophistication and Irish tradition that allows your guests to have a drink on you, either as part of the toast or maybe later at home.
The tradition of giving wedding favours has a rich and diverse history, dating back to the 16th century. The early iterations of wedding favours were known as “bonbonnieres,” usually small, ornate boxes filled with confections or sugared almonds, symbolising happiness, wealth, health, fertility, and longevity. These sweet tokens were initially reserved for the aristocracy but gradually evolved and became an integral part of weddings across different cultures and social strata.
Who gets Wedding Favours?
Traditionally, every guest attending the wedding should receive a wedding favour. It serves as a warm and gracious way to acknowledge their presence and thank them for being a part of the couple’s journey. However, while the tradition stipulates gifts for each guest, some couples opt to bestow special favours upon immediate family members and the bridal party, primarily as a gesture of heightened appreciation for their enduring support and invaluable contributions to the unfolding wedding celebrations.
Why Are Wedding Favours Given?
Wedding favours serve multiple purposes. They are a symbol of gratitude, allowing the couple to express their thanks to guests for attending their celebration. In addition, they serve to furnish guests with a tangible memory, a lasting memento of the wedding day. These little gifts reflect the couple’s personalities, tastes, and sometimes even their cultural or familial backgrounds, allowing guests to share in the uniqueness of the couple’s union.

Budgeting for Wedding Favours:
Deciding on wedding favour budgets is personal and depends on the couple’s financial plan and tastes. Typically, and as a general rule of thumb, couples designate approximately 1-2% of their cumulative budget to wedding favours. In this context, it’s sagacious to choose a favour that is both meaningful and economical. Choosing our Gin minis allows couples to give elegant, tasteful favours without extravagant costs, especially if purchased at discounted rates.
