How to choose favours for weddings

Many brides getting married for the first time (and of course we hope the only time!), may not have heard of wedding favours before they decide to get married or indeed even how to choose favours for weddings!

This is where we here at Sweet Heaven can help.  One of the first priorities for brides is deciding what type of wedding they want, what will suit them and of course most importantly what their wedding budget will be.  While the majority of brides and grooms still get married in the UK, getting married abroad is becoming increasingly popular.  Once this has been decided, the next big decision is the wedding theme as of course until you have decided on a colour theme nothing can be bought as all brides know well in advance colour co-ordination is where it all begins and ends.

Once you have decided your colour theme you can then tie in all of the wedding accessories you have chosen to include in your wedding arrangements, flowers, stationey and breakfast table arrangements to name but a few.  Following the actual wedding and your guests marvelling at your wedding dress and bridal party outfits, the next big thing your guests will walk into is the reception and the breakfast tables which will most probably involve flowers and favours.

How to choose favours for weddings will depend on your chosen colour scheme and of course any hot new seasonal colours for the year of your wedding.  Pink, cerise, purple, silver and gold wedding favours never go out of fashion and are classed as traditional wedding favours.  This is where Sweet Heaven can guide you as we have all of the traditional favours in both sweets and chocolates, together with the new colours of the season for instance navy chocolate wedding favours are very popular at the moment for weddings.  Whatever your choice from traditional, to new to daring bold colours visit www.sweetheaven-online.co.uk for ideas and colour schemes, together with competitive prices.

 

Summer wedding

If you are planning a summer wedding then you will probably know that time is passing quickly and your big day is nearly upon you.  By now you will probably have sorted your wedding venue, dress and colours, but may not yet have soted out the wedding favours for your summer wedding as this tends to be one of those items on your list that is left towards the end.  Wedding favours can be anything from little presents, to bubbles to sweets and chocolate.  Wedding favours actually orignated in Italy and the original tradition was chocolate and sweets.  So why not stay true to the original idea, but to make sure it matches your colour scheme. For some good ideas visit Sweet Heaven at www.sweetheaven-online.co.uk and view our popular selection of foiled covered chocolate in all of the popular colours and also in the latest colour of the season, you will also find chocolate dragees in many colours, chocolate neopolitans and Just Married and Mr and Mrs Rock sweets in many different colours.

Sweet candy

There is nothing like sweet candy to brighten up a dull day, candy is an American word for sweets, if you asked some children how to describe their favourite sweets and what is candy, they probably would not know as it originated from America, but if you asked most adults if they liked sweet candy their answer would be yes.  Some of the favourites would be refresher chews, fruit salads, black jacks, candy necklaces and bracelets, these were firm favourites from the 80′s with children so they may remember that type of candy.  Whichever way you look at it sweet candy is a firm favourite with both adults and children as it has been for many years.  Check out Sweet Heaven’s selection of candies and see if we have your favourite and don’t forget you will get free UK delivery.

Sweets of the 80′s

Sweets of the 80′s really were iconic and will go down in history as one of the most innovative decades  that will be remembered for many years to come and now those sweets are now known as retro sweets which are enjoyed by many different generations young and old alike from school children who are now eating sweets of the 80′s such as cadburys fredo’s which are a little frog shaped chocolate bars, curly wurlys which are a long thin soft caramel chewy bar with holes in the middle covered in milk chocolate and came out in the 80′s and were very popular and are now even more popular in the same way today nearly 30 years later, also there were wham bars, a firm favourite amongst sweet lovers and wispa chocolate bars.    Another firm favourite was a fudge bar made by cadburys and the slogan was “a finger of fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat, its full of family goodness and just enough to eat” or something along those lines.. Do you remember funny feet ice creams although these are not sweets they were always in the local corner shop where we would buy our old fashioned sweets and was always a big memory of mine which was strawberry flavoured ice creams in the shape of feet, simply delicious.  If you were not a child of  the 80′s then I am sure you will have your own stories to tell, but for me relating   of my childhood to fond memories and sweets of the 80′s then you can try to imagine some of the fun that I used to have and how simple life was and how little it used to cost.
