The humble wedding favor
Given to guests as a gesture of gratitude for attending your wedding, the tradition is a very old one, first seen in and around Europe which started between the aristocrats it usually consisted of a small trinket box ,crystal and sometimes china containing sugar cubes or fine confectionery which symbolized wealth and royalty. At that time sugar was an expensive luxury, over the years as sugar became less expensive so eventually this was replaced by almonds as a sign of the bitter sweet journey of a marriage.
Today we see many different kinds from a simple chocolate heart to more expensive gestures for those who have something special in mind and more money in their budget. If you like the idea of Almonds here is a lovely favour you can make this has been a long standing traditional favour
If you are not the creative sort or feel you would rather buy some first decide on what sort you want, do you want it personalized, something you eat many confectioners will do chocolate favors, or perhaps you would like a novelty type favor. I came across this one from Amazon and thought it was very cut as well as a bit different.
