Centuries ago, European aristocrats, most notably those in France and Italy, would send their wedding guests home with a small gift called a bonbonniere, or as it’s called in Italian, a bomboniere. These weren’t exclusively a wedding staple since they were also given out at birthday parties and other celebratory occasions. A bonbonniere was actually a box made of porcelain, crystal, precious stones or metal. Inside one would find delicacies made of sugar. It was from these boxed and gift wrapped confections that today’s wedding favors are derived. Facts thanks to: http://weddings.lovetoknow.com/wiki/History_of_Wedding_Favors
