An interesting thing that we’ve observed is that we didn’t succeed in mentioning things about wedding favors and when we say “things”, we refer to the history and similar such details, which are essential for a bride to know before her organizing such an important event.
The wedding favors are those small tokens of appreciation that the bride and groom place on the table to their guests, of course these can be considered gifts and they’re offered at the wedding reception or the wedding ceremony.
You may think that this habitude of offering wedding favors is quite new, well it isn’t in fact…. We seem to have traced its roots back in history, when the European aristocrats offered among them small boxes in which they placed sugar cubes or confections. These containers were called bonbonnieres and they were made with precious stones (or not) and of porcelain or crystal. This was a symbol of royalty and wealth – due to the fact that sugar was considered a luxury product in that period.

Throughout the time one can observe how these sugar cubes were replaced with almonds, almonds covered with sugar and these were offered to the guests as to indicate the wishes that the groom had concerning his new life. Even in our days you can observe how the wedding favors consist of coated almonds and this takes us back to the history of the wedding favors. Of course, you may think that almonds are bitter and not that appreciated by many. The coated almonds have two main symbols: the fact that the marriage is not that perfect, it has sweet moments, as well as bitter ones – it’s normal to be in this way.
