5 Crafty Wedding Favours You Can Make

Crafty Wedding

While your wedding day is a celebration of your love for one another, it’s become customary to shower your guests with a little affection too, in the form of a wedding favour. 

 

Originally introduced at high-society weddings in Europe as a way for the rich to provide their guests with a gift for attending their wedding, they were known as bonbonniere, a box covered in crystal, porcelain or gold, which was encrusted with precious stones. Inside the box were bonbons or other confectionary – which were particularly desirable at the time as sugar was an expensive treat. 

 

Say ‘I DO’ in a room with a view

BRIDAL couples looking for a room with a view can now say ‘I do’ at one of the UK’s most prestigious venues.

 

BALTIC Gateshead, on the south bank of the River Tyne, is offering three of its most impressive spaces for wedding ceremonies and receptions.

 

And top of the list – quite literally – is its rooftop restaurant Six, which is famous for its panoramic views of Tyneside and its iconic Tyne Bridge.

 

Six can hold wedding breakfasts for up to 120 guests, while its viewing box – overlooking the river - is an ideal setting for smaller ceremonies and canapés receptions.
