Love Spoons are traditional Welsh wedding favours that have been around for centuries. Originally they were carved by young welsh men who would and were offer them to the girls they loved as a token of their affection.
The young craftsman would spend months carving this special spoon to show his love to his chosen girl and to also show her father that he was good with his hands and would make an ideal husband and provider. If the girl accepted the love spoon then the couple would spend many happy years together and the spoon would take pride of place within their home. The love spoon would then be passed on through generations to keep their love alive and to pass on the good fortune of their eternal love.
These unusual wedding favours will certainly make your guests talk over dinner and will leave them with a little bit of romantic welsh history to take home to remind them of your big day.
