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.
Another DIY wedding favor idea that is both fun and cost effective is to bake your own goodies. Throw a little cooking get-together the week before the wedding and invite a group of friends and family-members who love baking. Typically you will be surrounded with people willing to help, so dont be afraid to accept it. The only other thing you will need, other than the baking goods, is several packs of wedding favor containers. End the baking party with an assembly line for packing and sealing the favors, followed by decorating the favor containers to match the rest of your wedding accessories.
You may even want to personalize your wedding accessories and favors with the couples monogram and wedding date. This is a very easy DIY project that can be conquered in little time. Simply choose the personalized stickers, tags, or satin ribbon that matches your wedding theme, and add them to your wedding favors for a special and stylish touch! Always remember that there is no right or wrong way to personalize your wedding. There are literally thousands of DIY wedding accessories and favors to choose from, and with the many ways to personalize them the possibilities for a unique wedding are truly endless.
