Poem about Bridal Favours
In olden days it became a tradition,
To bestow a gift from the bride with condition,
That the recipient be of the female gender,
And her wedding day attend her.
The gift was known as a Bridal Favour,
They symbolised five wishers true,
And here are the meanings made clear to you:
Long Life, Fertility, Happiness and Wealth
But most important the fifth for Health.
For the bride to bestow the gift was a pleasure,
And for the ladies attending five wishes to treasure.
A special gift from a memorable day,
To keep happy thoughts of a Special Wedding Day
