Our Wedding Favour Story –
The search for favour elegance
We decided to create The Favour Gallery® following the search for a wedding favour idea for our own wedding in 2002. The majority of couples spend a great deal of time planning and organising what is one of the most important days of their life and we started 2 years prior to our wedding day. Handmade invitations were posted, Beautiful flowers were ordered, wonderful food tasted, a bespoke bridal gown created and fabulous wedding venue, for a once in a lifetime party hired. We then reached the “Wedding Favours” section of our “to do” list.
We thought it was about time some Italian style was injected into the wedding favours and wedding sweets market” Alison Trerotoli – Sales and Marketing Manager – The Favour Gallery®
Amongst all the planned sophistication came the endless choice of mass produced wedding favour boxes. We wanted something really unique, unusual wedding favours, luxury wedding favours that would get our guests talking. It was whilst we were in Italy that we discovered the luxury wedding favors you can now exclusively buy on-line at www.thefavourgallery.co.uk
Our bespoke wedding favours are all “Made by Hand”. They are elegant and sophisticated, and your guests will be delighted to see their gift harbouring Sweet Italian Almonds or mouth-watering Chocolate Dragees. They are a wonderful alternative to the wedding favour box and make gorgeous table decorations.
We received so many compliments on our wedding day that we have now decided to allow brides into our wedding favour secret. Whenever we visit friends there is always one of our favours on display in their home.

The History of our Wedding Favours ~ Creating Sugar Almonds Since 1783
Our Wedding Favour Collection is created by the most famous “Confetti” (Confetti in Italian means Sugar Almonds) producer in Italy. Each favour is hand-made in the factory in Italy by a team of very dedicated and skilled women.
Their craft is often handed down from generation to generation. Almonds have been the family business since 1783 and these world-famous, prize winning sugared almonds and chocolate dragees continue to be made by hand in a four day process using a recipe which is over 300 years old. They also continue to use much of the original equipment. They are made without flour or other starches, making them absolutely delicious. Have you seen our stunning Sugared Almonds and Chocolate Dragees Bouquets? Visit our online store at www.thefavourgallery.co.uk
for further information on these and our unique wedding favours.
We are proud to be able to sell these World Famous Favours and are confident that when you compare our Favours with cheap imitations you will see the difference.
The Favour Gallery is so fortunate to be able to sell the most important brand of Confetti and Wedding Favors in Italy and the World, to the Bridal and Party market in the UK, Continental Europe and all over the World – Giuseppe Trerotoli – Managing Director.
We visit the factory in Italy several times a year to ensure that we continue to provide our British customers with the best Italian styles and colours.
Wedding favours should provide your guests with a lasting reminder of your unforgettable Wedding Day. Your favours should be something that guests wish to keep and display and that you give in celebration of your wedding. They are an important part of the whole tradition and make wonderful wedding table decorations.
Italian Tradition says that the almonds represent - Health, Wealth, Happiness, Fertility and Long Life and the odd number of Almonds mean it cannot be divided – like the couple. English Tradition says each almond represents Health, Wealth and Fertility. Go with one of these... Or why not start your own tradition “Health, Happiness, Wealth, Long Life and Love?”
Don’t forget that our favors are also extremely popular to celebrate birthday parties and to give guests at dinners, Christmas lunch, Type the text here Easter and anniversary dinners and other special occasions. Why not give our party favours at your engagement party too? Or what about baby shower favours or sweet sixteen party favors? Sugared almonds are very versatile. We also have customers who have purchased a set of favours to use as table decorations for their dinner parties. Have a look in our store at our choice of party favours.
