The custom of giving wedding favors started hundreds of years ago in Europe when the nobility gave out gifts at their weddings. These wedding favors were typically small porcelain, metal or crystal boxes filled with candies, or treats made of sugar, called bonbonierres.
Because a wedding was considered to be good luck, this was a way for the noble couple to share their luck with their guests and to show their appreciation for their guests’ attendance. Remember, in those days, guests may have traveled many days to attend the wedding.
Today, the custom of giving favors occurs not only at weddings, but also at showers and bachelorette parties. Just as the custom has expanded, the array of favors has grown as well. Now, the favors are often personalized to commemorate the event. The one thing that hasn’t changed is that guests are always delighted to leave with a favor that is both a token of appreciation and that also marks the special occasion.
So if you just volunteered to host your niece’s bridal shower, or your friend’s bachelorette party, or if you’re a bride looking for a special wedding favor to commemorate your occasion, Wick-edly Sent can create a favor to fit your tastes and budget.
We are happy to work with you to create just the right favor. For example, in the shower favor above, guests at Kate’s bridal shower received lavendar olive oil soap, body wash, body lotion and lip butter customized with “Thanks for Showering with Kate.”
