A Wedding favour is a token gift that newlyweds present to their guests as a small thank-you for attending their special day. Traditionally, guests were offered 5 sugared-almonds to represent the 5 pillars of marriage: Health, Wealth, Happiness, Fertility and a Long Life. Modern weddings bypass this tradition, and we see more creative offerings – everything from little knick-knacks that form part of the table décor, to pre-party aperitifs, that help kick start the celebrations.

The Resort Venue
With thousands of couples (including a certain Harry and Meghan) planning their weddings to take place this spring and summer, Friends of the Earth reveals a new list of ideas to help everyone enjoy a green wedding.
