Warning: Your guests will immediately suffer from a case of wanderlust when you announce that Italy is the phenomenal destination spot for your wedding. Heck, you might even have to physically restrain them from immediately jet setting to the rolling hills of Tuscany months before your set wedding date. While your guests are probably far from opposed to attending a wedding in Italy, we think it’s a good idea to give them a thoughtful thank-you. In fact, wedding favors are a time-honored tradition that began in Italy with the bomboniere (box of sweets). Centuries ago, the Italian aristocracy would give bombonieres to their wedding guests as a symbol of good luck. Basically, guests would receive a small, personalized box that held delicate confections, typically five ‘Jordan Almonds’ or ‘confetti’ that signify five wishes for the bride and groom: health, wealth, happiness, fertility, and longevity.
Brides like to coordinate their wedding favor with their wedding theme. An Italian-inspired wedding favor perfectly showcases your unique destination wedding. If you want to stick to Italian tradition, you may opt for confetti almonds as your wedding favor. You can easily add charming personalized decorations. We love the countless label and design templates at Martha Stewart weddings!
Other perfect Italian wedding favors you can easily personalize are: miniature panettone sweet breads, Gubbino Italian ceramics, herb-infused olive oil, or miniature bottles of Tuscan wine and limoncello from Sorrento. No matter which Italian wedding favor you choose, we guarantee you will send your guests home with a piece of Italy!
