Traditionally a bonbonniere was a small gift of sugared cubes or sweets and later sugared almonds. Each guest would receive five sugar coated almonds to symbolise health, wealth, long life, fertility and happiness. Today, wedding favors have become a booming business and come in all shapes and sizes, from the simple to the extreme.

Wedding favors can account for a large portion of your wedding budget, if you have a hundred guests and you spend $5 each could that $500 be better spent somewhere else? So before you rush out and spend hundreds of dollars ask yourself if you really need wedding favors at all? For a number of brides this is still considered a non-essential item. If it is not a priority for you then the biggest saving would be to avoid it altogether.
