Wedding favor bags are small gifts graciously handed to guests of the wedding during their reception. Seen as gestures of gratitude, the practice dates back to the European aristocrats. Today, weddings that distribute favor bags stand out from those that do not.
Depending on the family, it was then filled with delicate confections or sugar cubes. Sugar was an expensive commodity in Europe at that time, with popular sugar candies consisting of sweet confetti or sugared almonds. Today mints and candies are a major part of the wedding favor gift bags or party favor bags, a throwback to these early days.
