What’s a better post for Wedding Wednesdays than one of the most fun little details at the reception, the souvenirs and wedding favors!

These small gifts have been given as a gesture of appreciation to guests from the bride and groom for many years. Thought to have started in Europe and they were then called bonbonnieres (which they still are here in Montreal). Bonbonniere’s are a small trinket box made of crystals and or previous stones and the contents of the box were generally sugar cubes or confections – yum! As the years went on, as did the favors. Confections became almonds or hard candy, and couples opted for a more economical bonbonniere.

Today, gifts to guests are commonly known as wedding favors,wedding favors have become a part of wedding reception planning, especially Canada.

Customizing your favor to wedding theme is very common and couples are constantly looking to use for unique designs! Think outside the “box” and you’ll surely please your guests! Our suggestion is to stay with a little snack like candies, chocolates or the new hot treat…. marshmallows!!! <Photo 12>
