The history of distributing wedding favors dates back to the sixteenth century. Many upper class Europeans would distribute parting gifts to their guests to demonstrate their wealth and stature in society. The gifts these wealthy families provided were elaborate and thoughtful signs of appreciation to all their guests. The first wedding favor that was given contained chocolates inside an elaborate jewel studded box, known by the French as a bonbonniere. Sugar was seen as a luxury to everyone in the sixteenth century. So, it was only appropriate that each gift contained some of the most expensive sugar made candy there was around. The bride and groom of the wedding were seen to be blessed and lucky, therefore by distributing gifts to all who attended their joyful day they could spread their blessings.
Choosing wedding favors for the rest of the male wedding guests can be a bit more difficult as you have different ages, tastes, and lifestyles. A guest at 20 isnt thinking about things the same way a guest at 50 would be. So what would be practical to give to a 20 year old such as a tux bottle koozie may not be the right choice to give to older male guests. The best place to start again is by thinking practical. It may not be so easy to choose a one size fits all type of favor so think about selecting three or four different styles of wedding favors for the male guests at your wedding.
