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.
Chocolate Wedding Favors - Many brides and grooms take it upon themselves to distribute chocolate wedding favors to their guests as a token of appreciation. But why should the bride and groom be responsible for showering their guests with gifts? A wedding is meant to be a special day for the happy couple getting married not a day to distribute gifts to friends and family. The guests that attend your wedding should be happy for you, and not expect anything in return.
