Grasmere Gingerbread Wedding Favours

Below our testimonials from many happy couples who have received our Grasmere Gingerbread® wedding favours.

“THANK you so much for all that you have done. I have been able to be sure that despite no dress, no ring and absent ushers we would have the one thing I truly wanted… the favours! You have the process so easy, personal and caring that I cannot recommend you enough. I have ordered from you on numerous occasions and always been pleased with the service but the sorting of the favours has been patient, considerate and so easy. Thank you once again.”
Rachael Smith

“Many thanks for the Wedding Favours. They arrived as promised on Thursday and we were able to take them over to the reception after we had personalised them with names etc. Everyone seemed delighted and thoroughly enjoyed the contents. They looked great too. We had a wonderful day.”
Chris Gerrard

“Thank you very much for the Gingerbread in the heart shaped boxes, which we used as favours at Victoria and Philip’s wedding reception. They looked lovely displayed on the tables and were certainly a talking point and very much appreciated by the guests. Maybe the aphrodisiacal properties will lead to further orders from the younger guests. Thank you once again for all your help and advice which all helped to make a very enjoyable and successful day.”
Dave and Judith Bage (Coniston)

“Just to say a big Thank You for the Wedding Favours – everyone thought they were Fantastic”
Karon Young

“I would like to say a very big “THANK YOU” for meeting our expectations and delivering such a fantastic product in such a timely way for our wedding. I had ordered 50 of the plain heart-shaped boxes, each containing 2 Gingerbread hearts. When they arrived (on time) the day before the wedding I was able to customise the boxes to use them as place settings as suggested on your excellent website. Many of our guests commented on the originality of our favours and also on how delicious the Gingerbread was. Once again “Thank You”. P.S – Thank you for your good wishes and your card, a very nice touch!”
Lindsay Palmer (Nee Dusson)

“I would really like to thank you all for the lovely wedding favours that arrived for Kate and Steve’s wedding on Saturday. They were beautifully packaged and delicious (of course). All the guests remarked on how good the Gingerbread tasted and added what a relief it was not to be given the ubiquitous sugared almonds!! As Kate and Steve spend a lot of time walking and climbing around Grasmere and the Lakes it meant a lot to them to have something from the area – they were particularly touched by the lovely card and greetings from you all. The wedding went off without a hitch and as it was the second time for both of them they wanted everything to be enjoyable and relaxing. They were very lucky with the weather as the reception was held in their garden and it was a glorious day. Once again many thanks for your wonderful service.”

“Just wanted to drop you a line to say how lovely our wedding favours were – they looked wonderful on the table with the green ribbon tied around. We had a fabulous day and had many positive comments on the favours. Thanks again”
Vanessa Allan

“Thanks to all concerned for the lovely gingerbread you provided for Rachel’s wedding. She spent an evening with friends decorating and naming the boxes. Most of the guest were not local and were fascinated by the original favours. Some had even travelled from Australia especially for the wedding! Thanks again for all your help.”
Judith Saxon (Mother of the Bride)

“I would like to thank everyone at Sarah Nelson’s Gingerbread Shop. I was introduced to the famous gingerbread when I was little and have visited regularly ever since. We opted for the brown heart shaped boxes which were perfect to decorate and personalise ourselves. A week before the wedding we delivered the boxes back the team in Grasmere and they put fresh gingerbread in and our personal message to our guest which was a great help. Our guests loved the unusual favours and for most it was their first taste of the delicious gingerbread. Thank you once again to you all at Sarah Nelson’s we look forward to our next visit.”
Louise Bell

“We just wanted to say thank you so much for the excellent gingerbread wedding favours you provided for our wedding in Sunderland at the Roker Hotel (21st April 2006). The gingerbread went down a treat and was a real talking point amongst all our guests. The gingerbread favours are an excellent idea – we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them not only for the gingerbread itself but also for the wonderful customer service we received. Thank you again!”

Mair and Pete

“We chose Grasmere Gingerbread as were getting married in Ambleside and wanted favours unique to the Lake District. We have always purchased Grasmere Gingerbread during our trips to Grasmere. We love the flavour and felt that our guests would enjoy the gingerbread too. We like the choice of presentation boxes and also that we could add our personal touches to decorate the heart shaped boxes which we chose. We included some for the information which you provided on the background of gingerbread and particularly the history of the Grasmere Gingerbread in our ceremony day book for our guests to read. We had many compliments on our day and all the boxes were empty at the end of the day. A definite testimonial to Grasmere Gingerbread.”
Cheryl Holdsworth (nee Turner)

“Our sincere thanks for all you help with the favour boxes and wrapping the fudge for us. The wedding was a great day and lots of lovely comments about your gingerbread and fudge. Thank you once again.”

“Nichola and I would like to say a big thank you for the gingerbread wedding favours. Our wedding at the Miller Howe Hotel was an outstanding success and we are now looking forward to our honeymoon in Kenya next week. Nichola was very pleased and surprised to receive the large Gingerbread heart from our friends in Canada and the USA. I posted wedding favours to various parts of the globe on Saturday and received an email from a 2nd cousin in Dunedin, New Zealand the morning, stating that her gingerbread had arrived. I think with the exception of Antarctica we have sent Grasmere Gingerbread to every continent. Once again, many thanks for your contribution to our fantastic wedding day.”
Paul Jagger

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for our gorgeous gingerbread favours you organised for our wedding on 8th September. They were widely admired and were just perfect for the occasion. Your excellent organisation and helpfulness in arranging our favours made it all very easy for me and I am grateful to you for all your help. Finally many thanks for the card wishing us well – it was a lovely thought.”
