Wedding favours are small gifts given as a gesture of appreciation or gratitude to guests from the bride and groom during a wedding ceremony or a wedding reception. Usually the favours are placed at each guests table seated place.
The tradition of giving wedding favours is one that is very old, started when sugar was seen as a luxury commodity and treasured amongst the wealthy. The first wedding favours were known as a “bonbonniere”. This was a small trinket box often made of porcelain with crystals and precious stones. Usually the bonbonniere was filled with sugar cubes or sweet confectionery – a symbol of wealth. When the price of sugar decreased throughout the centuries, the tradition of giving gifts to guests at a wedding became common place amongst the populace.
Today, gifts to guests are commonly known as wedding favours and are shared in cultures worldwide.
