Wedding favors have been around for some time. During the 16th century in France, nobility and royalty often gave porcelain as wedding favors. Few brides today can afford such extravagant favors, but you can give a little something that will serve as both a memento of your wedding and a token of your appreciation to guests for attending your wedding. .

Traditional wedding favors once consisted of small bags of rice that guests could throw at the bride and groom. When experts discovered that rice harmed birds, birdseed was used instead. If you’re having a traditional wedding, you may want to go with birdseed favors. To make them, simply wrap a couple of tablespoons of wild birdseed into some tulle and tie with ribbon.

Another traditional wedding favor is almonds. During the 17th century, couples gave guests three sugarcoated almonds wrapped in tulle. One almond stood for the groom, one for the bride and one for the baby they would have, thus making the favors a symbol of fertility. To make almond favors, all you need to do is wrap some almonds in tulle and tie with ribbon.

If birdseed or almonds do not suit you, you could try making some sachets. During Victorian times, couples gave guests sachets filled with rosemary, which symbolized that they would not forget their friends and family even though they were starting a life together. To make these favors, cut some silk fabric into small squares, insert a sprig of rosemary into each square and tie with ribbon.
