Wedding favors are something that each bride and groom can use to express himself or herself. From striking bold designs to simple and clean cut, wedding favors are a great way to add that individualism to your special day. Far from being a modern addition to the world of weddings, favors began as a tradition in France. Named ‘bonbonniere’, these were little gifts representing good luck, which were given to the wedding guests of the French aristocracy.
Bonbonnieres were generally a little trinket box decorated with gemstones containing sweets. Sugar was an expensive commodity at the time and as such, wedding favors remained within the realm of the rich for a long time but as the price of sugar came down, the practice of giving wedding favors started to spread throughout Europe. The tradition also evolved into including sugar almonds, something which still holds strong today. Almonds are now given in sets of five to represent fertility, longevity, wealth, health and happiness.
