Do me a favour?

Wedding favours should never be expected by guests (after all, your hosts are paying for you to eat and drink all day in beautiful surroundings) but providing those you love enough to invite with a little gift is a classy way to say ‘thanks for coming’.

Wedding favours don’t have to be huge or expensive, with even little, well thought out favours having a big impact.

Here’s a run through of some of our favourite favours for the perfect Portuguese wedding. Some of these have special relevance to this beautiful country, reflecting a national icon, tradition of style. Others are just lovely touches.

Love in a glass – a special home made jam, chutney or sweet using Portugal’s incredible natural produce. Or whatever you want to out in really.
