Wedding favors are gifts that the bride and groom decide on to distribute to their wedding guests as a token of gratitude for attending their important day. The possibilities are endless as to what gifts you can give to your guests. Chocolate wedding favors have been a favorite for guests for decades. The wedding favors are something that the bride takes upon herself to choose for her many guests. The bride normally chooses something that she enjoys as a token of her appreciation to her family and friends.
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.
