Over the years after their special wedding day, many married couples celebrate their wedding anniversary privately. They may go out to a nice dinner, see a show at the theater, or take a romantic trip together. On certain anniversary years, however, the couple’s family or friends may decide to throw the special couple a wedding anniversary party so that the couple’s loved ones can take part in celebrating their many years of happiness together.

You can have a wedding anniversary party to celebrate any year of marriage, but most commonly they may take place during the 10th year, 25th year, 35th year, or if they’re lucky enough – the 50th year of marriage.
Just like at on the original wedding day, many anniversary celebrations will include wedding anniversary favors – so the family and friends will have a small token to remember the event by when they leave. They’re not the most important ingredient of the celebration (only the married couple can take that honor!) but it just wouldn’t seem right to celebrate a wedding anniversary without wedding anniversary favors on the table or in the guests’ goody bags.
Wedding Favors Throughout History
Wedding favors themselves have been around since weddings during the 16th century, and are customary in wedding celebrations around the world. Wedding favors give guests something to remember the special day with, and are given to symbolize the married couple’s appreciation for the guests for sharing in such a special time of their lives together.
The actual type of favor given during a wedding or wedding anniversary party varies with the culture of the bride and groom. Around the world and across many cultures, it is common for a wedding favor to contain 5 items or candies to symbolize the five wishes everyone holds in common for their marriage: health, wealthy, fertility, happiness, and longevity.
Types of Wedding Anniversary Favor
In modern weddings and wedding anniversary celebrations, personalized candy wrappers are ideal favors for your guests. You can get your candy wrapper wedding anniversary favors custom printed with all of the anniversary facts, such as the name of the couple, date married, and year of celebration – and you can even add some fun with “now” and “then” photographs of the wedding couple. It’s always fun to see a photo of the couple on their original wedding day side by side with a more recent photo of the couple – why not have them printed directly on your wedding anniversary favors for your friends and family to keep?
Your wedding anniversary favors can be printed to match your party theme or colors. There is a choice of Hershey bar wrappers, Miniature Hershey bar wrappers, and bottle wrappers for wedding anniversary favors. You can also customize any of the other party favor options to meet your wedding anniversary favor needs from gum wrappers to life saver wrappers; photo wrappers for lollypops, and even bubbles in champagne-shaped bottles which would be perfect for the 50th anniversary celebration!
