Many things need to be done to complete a wedding. These can be wedding table crystals used as decorations, wedding guest books, and wedding favors. These items require careful planning before they can be chosen. The more options there are, the harder it is to narrow down the list and make the right choice.

Wedding favors are a very old tradition of distributing small gifts to wedding guests as a token of appreciation or gratitude from the bride and groom. Bombonieres are considered to be the first wedding gifts given by European nobility as a sign of wealth and royalty. It was a small trinket box containing a square of sugar or candy, usually made of porcelain, crystal, or precious stones. During this time, sugar was only provided by the wealthy, but as it became cheaper over the centuries, almonds took its place. By the 13th century, sugared almonds, called confetti by the Italians, became the trend. According to tradition, a candy box containing five Jordanian almonds symbolizes health, wealth, happiness, fertility, and longevity. Jordan almonds, sugared almonds, or confetti are a type of almond covered with a candy coating of various colors from Italy and make a great wedding gift for traditional weddings. The colors represent certain celebrations, with white Jordan almonds used for weddings, red for graduations, and yellow, pink, or blue for baby showers. You may be wondering why sugared almonds are used for wedding favors. This is because the bitterness of almonds combined with the sweetness of sugar symbolizes the bittersweetness of married life.

Nowadays, wedding favors can be anything that the bride and groom think is appropriate for their wedding, as long as it is within their budget. But always remember that the wedding gift you choose reflects your personality and style, and it is best to choose the wedding gift that best suits you.

There are a wide variety of wedding gifts to choose from, and choosing the right one can be an extremely complicated and lengthy process. To help you make your decision, here are some factors to consider when choosing the right wedding gift.

The first thing to consider is deciding whether your wedding gift will be edible or a keepsake. You can never go wrong with edible items; they will be consumed immediately afterward. These can be Jordan almonds, cakes, chocolate truffles, preserves, cookies, and other sweets. Souvenirs can be almost anything worthy of commemorating this special day.

The next thing to consider is the budget. Contrary to popular belief, a wedding gift does not need to be expensive. It only takes a little creativity to meet your expected budget. Some people will even handcraft keepsakes to make them more personal to their guests. If you find that these items are too expensive, you just need to contact the vendor if they can give you a discounted price. Most suppliers can adjust the price based on the number of items you will purchase, similar to a wholesale purchase.

Finally, consider whether the wedding gifts you want your guests to receive will be useful to them. Many couples don't give much thought to this, and in the end, their favors end up just being stored somewhere in the guest's home. If the item is useful to your guests, then there is a good chance that they will remember your wedding each time they use the item and they will be very grateful. These can be decorative candles, champagne glasses, key chains, decorative letter openers or cheese knives, and pretty containers or boxes that can be used to store small items.

It is important to remember that your wedding favors should match the overall theme of the wedding. This is similar to how you choose the colors of the wedding table crystals that decorate the table centerpieces and the colors you wish to use for your wedding guestbook. And never follow trends. Follow your instincts when choosing your wedding favors. It's a greater achievement if you choose personal choices rather than popular ones. After all, the gift you choose reflects your personality and style.
