How To Choose Original Wedding Giveaways

Dec 06, 2013 | Posted by:  abi s

The tradition of wedding giveaways goes back about four centuries. The giving of wedding favors is taken for granted these days and not much thought is given to the reason for giving them. In  Europe the gifts started out as a statement of wealth and social standing. Sugar was very expensive and the gifting of such extravagant gifts made with sugar was a sure sign of nobility, wealth and power. The “bonbonniere” was a small box that was made from some precious metal and generally encrusted with beautiful gemstones. The boxes contained exactly five items made from sugar or sugar cubes.

The tradition did not start with the lower classes until the sugar became affordable for all. Once sugar lost its value the boxes began to reflect this and were known to include almonds, nuts and fruit. Sometimes the wedding giveaways took place as the guest arrived so that they could enjoy the treats during the days of celebration. Today we give wedding favors as a show of thanks to the guests for taking time out of their busy lives to share our most precious moments.


Although the gifts of nuts, fruit and confections still hold true, there are those who want to give mementoes that will last a lot longer. The couples look for small items that will be of use to the guests. Something that will be used often and a constant reminder of a happy time in their family or friends life. Choosing the perfect gift for your family and friends is never easy but here are a few tips along with a few ideas to get you started on your way.


  1. When choosing your wedding giveaway you should keep in mind the overall theme of your wedding. Choose a gift that coordinates well within the theme it should also be a gift that will not overrun your budget.

  1. If it is your intention to provide your guests with something useful why not consider personalized ink pens, stemware, picture frames or mugs.
