Although traditionally favours were five sugared almonds, they now come in all shapes and sizes. Whilst many wonder if there is any need for favours there are still plenty of brides and grooms who choose to use these little gifts to thank their guests for sharing their day. However the extra expense of buying favour boxes or alternative favours may just be one thing that your budget does not stretch to. Also there is a growing trend for couples to go that extra mile and create their own favours.
