Gifts for Wedding guests

Its is very common for wedding couples when hosting their wedding provide a thank you gift to those guests attending

In European culture the thank you gift is called a Bomboniere.   The concept of the gift  of koufeta or sugar almonds, originated in France, around 300 years ago, when a small box of sweets were given away to guests on happy occasions. Over time the idea spread to other parts of Europe, and in particular to Italy and Greece. Bomboniere consisted of an uneven number (typically 5) of sugar-coated almonds, representing the bittersweet life of a married couple.

In America, the Bonboniere is commonly called a Wedding Favour. Wedding favors have become a part of wedding reception planning, Wedding favors usually complement the theme or season of the event. Some great ideas for favors are personalised individual chocolates, candles and scented soaps,  silver picture frames with a photo of the couple. Gifts may also be personalized with the couple’s names, initials or wedding date.
