The wedding or civil partnership ceremony and the exchanging of vows and promises represents a couple's eternal and everlasting love for each other. The wedding ring or band is symbolic of this commitment.
In Pagan times in Britain the wedding was known as handfasting. The tradition of handfasting would allow couples to be betrothed for a year and a day, after this time they could agree to part without any obligation on either side. Handfasting is still practised today as an alternative wedding ceremony. Couples handfast for life and eternity.
The Ancient Celts of Britain believed that Beltane, May 1st was a very lucky day to marry. This festival day celebrates the beginning of summer and the cycle of life and re-birth. Spring fertility rites were practised at this time with many young girls falling pregnant as a result of the celebrations. However, the puritans in 1644 banned any further celebrations.
Our beautifully embroidered pot pourri bags are ideal for holding confetti in the form of paper, lavender or rose petals which are now very popular at weddings.
A wedding favour is a small gift or keepsake given to guests of the wedding and also those who are unable to attend. The giving of favours was originally a European tradition but is now practised worldwide.
The original favours were sweets or pastries given in small bags or boxes. The giving of bomboniere has become international. Favours make a wonderful lasting gift and memory of the wedding.
Our gift / favour bags are available in Celtic, Floral and Christmas designs. They can all be used for sweets, pot pourri, jewellery or any small gift. We now supply our range of beautifully embroidered gift bags filled with Lavender grains.
