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.
Care should be exercised when going with a chocolate wedding party favor since chocolate can melt when stored in the wrong way or place. Ants and other insects might also find their way to the chocolate which is why it is best to store these in an airtight container. Handling the chocolate wedding party favor frequently can also instigate melting. Putting these in containers can help to minimize the impact of melting.
How will you present your favor? Many couples will simply leave a note card on each place setting explaining the charitable donation & how much was given, although it is entirely up to you whether or not to disclose this. Those organizations above will give you some advice on how to word these cards. If you dont want to go down the route of note cards, you can arrange to have a sign or poster displayed somewhere within the reception so all your guests can see it. Another option is to announce it during the speeches or at some other appropriate moment.
