The history of wedding favors
Wedding favors have been a custom for some centuries now. It has always been used as a token of appreciation for guests at a wedding.
Affluent European families, particularly from Italy and France would give out wedding favors to every guest. This wedding favor was often a sweet treat. These were places in a beautiful trinket box. Sugar, at the time, was a symbol of wealth because of how expensive it was.
As the years went on, sugar became a more affordable commodity and therefore the tradition of giving wedding favors passed on to other social classes.
