I saw these wedding favors at Chateau on the Creek last night and loved them! I loved the idea behind them. The groom was Chinese and they found some great ways to incorporate their culture into their wedding. The favors were one way! They gave a little bag of cookies along with a little teapot and single serving of tea to all their guests.
According to Chinese tradition, the newlywed couple often present tea to their elders as a way to express their gratitude to them for raising them. Tea is also used to connect the two families on their wedding day. Chinese families can often times be quite large and many family members hadn't met the other family before the wedding. The bride and groom would often serve tea at the wedding. Drinking the tea was a sign of acceptance into the new family! What a sweet way to express their thanks to their guests and still honor family tradition as well!
What are some unique and fun ways you can tie your culture into your wedding day?
