Ask Kate: Favours Rhyme

August 6, 2013

Kate Thompson has been offering heart-felt advice and sparklingly different wedding inspiration for ten years. She is married with two children, and often features in the national press. With her warm and caring nature and off-beat sense of humour, she'll answer every question with knowledgable insight and understanding to help and inspire or simply restore your peace of mind.


At a friends wedding a few years back a small note was enclosed with the favours explaining why they were given and what each one represented. I know the sweets represent health, wealth, happiness, long-life and fertility but am struggling to ‘word’ the message appropriately. Do you have any standard formats in which the favour note can be written?


How about:

‘Five candied almonds
For each guest to eat
To remind us that life
Is both bitter and sweet
Five wishes they hold
For the new man and wife
Health, happiness, wealth, children
And a long life’
