Throughout history wedding favors have become an important part of marriage celebrations around the world. The tradition of wedding favors dates back several centuries, or perhaps thousands of years. It is said that since the 16th century brides and grooms have presented wedding favors upon the wedding guests. Undoubtedly, favors have been an important part of wedding ceremonies around the world, symbolizing the appreciation of the newly united couple to their wedding guests for sharing with them such a significant occasion in their lives.
Wedding favors around the world are as diverse as the cultures surrounding them. The type of wedding favors that have been used in weddings of the past depended a great deal on the culture of the families of the bride and groom. Different cultures have various traditional wedding favors that they use. Without a doubt, there are some similarities among many of the traditions. For instance, it is quite common for many cultures to provide each guest with a wedding favor that contains five candies. Each piece represents one of the five common wedding wishes: health, wealth, happiness, fertility, and longevity.
Wedding favors are considered among the most important accessories of marriage celebrations. Couples use unique wedding favors to thank their wedding guests. Many favors are practical gifts such as silver plated bottle opener or favor bags. Picture frames, candles and candleholders are among some of the most popular wedding favors. Both personalized chocolate and foil wrapped chocolates are very popular wedding favors. Brides seek to make a statement with their favors. Personalized wedding favors provide an especially effective way to display a brief message to the reception guests.

When hosting a bridal shower it is best to set the budget first. This will allow you to allocate the bulk of the money to things that are more expensive and are necessary to be there. Getting creative and using the resources you have for decorating, etc. will help the host save a lot of money.
Here is a wedding custom about kissing that comes from the Swedish folk so everyone gets a shot at kissing the bride and groom. When the bride or groom happen to leave the room during the reception, eager guests line up for a kiss. Sounds like a pretty loving party!
