The Tradition of Wedding Favors

Did you know?
It is widely believed that European aristocrats started the time honored tradition of giving wedding favors. The first wedding favors were tiny boxes made of porcelain or crystal called bonbonniere. These boxes often contained a cube of sugar or other small confectionery. Because sugar and other sweets were rare and expensive, wedding favors were only given out by the wealthy.

Over time, as sugar became more readily available and less expensive, even couples of modest means adopted the tradition of giving wedding favors as a sign of the couple's appreciation. In fact, tradition states that the giving of gifts leads to years of good fortune.

With virtually thousands of products on the market today, deciding which wedding favor to give can be a daunting task. You want the wedding favor gift to be meaningful, yet practical. While your budget will be an important deciding factor, your guests will truly appreciate that you took the time to choose a meaningful memento of your big day!
