As favours, if you plan to have a wedding in France, it can be a great idea to go for local delicacies or even to cook them yourself!
For instance for a wedding in Provence, you could prepare some little jam pots with lavender jelly, for a wedding in Brittany you could give some mini milk cans with caramel candies in it, etc…
I have gathered for you a selection of local gourmandises...
The Maxi Saladou…a giant caramel sweet ! By La Maison d’Armorine
Delicious home made madeleines, et voila!
Select some colourful macarons (for instance from a chic Ladurée
boutique) and present one or two in a little box as a favour. Or, you can be more practical and use them as place names too.
Some pink pralines that you can buy in big quantities; put them in a nice sachet with a ribbon and a thank you note…BON and BEAU! Check Var Dragees
if you want to buy some.
Melting-in-the mouth nougats, a speciality of Montelimar in the South of France: honey, sugar and roasted nuts
Enfin, pourquoi pas des calissons d’Aix
? A calisson consists of a smooth paste of candied fruit (melon, orange) and ground almonds topped with a thin layer of royal icing. You can buy some at La confiserie du Roy René
