History Of Wedding Favors

Wedding favors are popular at wedding receptions or parties almost everywhere. Their historical origin is unknown but there’s evidence that they have been popular around the world for a very long time.

There are many theories about what generated the tradition of giving wedding guests a favor for attending the service. Some say the tradition originated with the Romans in the 8th century. Another states that the Romans, during 400 B.C. started the practice of throwing rice and giving wedding favors to guests.

Almonds have been a traditional symbol of good luck and assurances for successful marriages for centuries. Originally, only the titled families followed this practice and their favors were often made of silver or gold. When the custom filtered down to the other social classes, by the end of the 19th century, almonds were distributed in golden paper boxes.

Obviously the “something new” would be the bride’s dress.

You also want a destination that has activities you two like to do, whether it be scuba diving, bargain hunting, beach walking, or museum visiting. The decision has to be made whether to go somewhere near or far and usually the amount of time you can take away from work plays into this.

One other big factor is the cost of the honeymoon. If you have your heart set on going somewhere that’s farther away than the other side of town, then consider the “high season”, “low season”, and “shoulder season” of your possible destinations.

How to Make Your Own Wedding Fan Programs

from djwhelan

Your wedding is meant to be a reflection of you and your fiance’s love for each other, but it is also a time to draw on your creativity to make your wedding special and absolutely like no one else’s. One of the things that lends itself really nicely to your creativity is with your wedding programs.

Wedding programs are certainly not a necessity, but they are wonderful for the guests to have before the wedding begins so they can follow along with what’s going on in the wedding. Fan programs take it a step further by also being useful in a hot church or hot outdoor wedding.

You can ask a friend or relative to do it, or have a little get-together with your bridesmaids and get it done quicker while in a fun and relaxing environment.
