There are two ways to distribute guest wedding favors. Wedding favors can be placed at each wedding reception guests place setting to take along whenever they leave or elegantly displayed on a table near the entrance to the wedding reception venue where the bridge and groom will be toward the end of the reception. As guests say goodbye to the couple, they can thank each guest for coming by giving them the favor or telling them to take one when they leave.
The chocolate wedding party favors in the shape of kisses, balls or small bars are sometimes repacked in foil with complementing colors to the wedding. Containers for the smaller chocolates are usually cardboard boxes. These boxes can be shaped as hearts or squares depending on the preferences of the bride and groom. Other containers for the chocolate wedding party favor can be a wedding party favor bag, pouches, plastic wrap, small glass canisters or paper origami.
The history of distributing wedding favors dates back to the sixteenth century. Many upper class Europeans would distribute parting gifts to their guests to demonstrate their wealth and stature in society. The gifts these wealthy families provided were elaborate and thoughtful signs of appreciation to all their guests. The first wedding favor that was given contained chocolates inside an elaborate jewel studded box, known by the French as a bonbonniere. Sugar was seen as a luxury to everyone in the sixteenth century. So, it was only appropriate that each gift contained some of the most expensive sugar made candy there was around. The bride and groom of the wedding were seen to be blessed and lucky, therefore by distributing gifts to all who attended their joyful day they could spread their blessings.
