Personalize sweet wedding favors to wow your guests
If you ask your wedding guests ahead of the wedding, they’ll probably tell you that edible favors are the best favors. If you’ve been to many weddings, you probably know that sometimes, you get pretty hungry between the ceremony and the reception, especially if you can’t manage to flag down the waiter to grab some hors d’oeuvres from his tray before everyone else gets to them.
If you know what I mean, consider treating your guests to an edible favor when they arrive at your wedding to satisfy their cravings before dinner is served. You can either have the favor waiting at guests’ table settings when they arrive or create a pretty favor table if you aren’t planning on assigned seating. Whatever works for you! Here are some of the most creative (and delicious) ideas for reception favors for your guests:
Chocolate-covered coffee beans
We like chocolate-covered anything, but give your guests a pre-dance party boost by serving up some fabulously crunchy and caffeinated chocolate-covered coffee beans. Nestle these into pillow favor boxes, which you can completely personalize using either plain or patterned papers and the text and design you want in a multitude of colors to match your party. And don’t forget custom gift tags to thank your guests for celebrating with you.
These are probably the cutest things ever invented. Make them extra-personal by choosing a fruit that’s known to your region (like cherry pie for Washington or apple pie for Michigan). Don’t forget to add a mini disposable fork so guests can enjoy them now or later. Put the pies in cellophane favor bags and tie with a custom ribbon that matches your color palette and even has a personalized message.
If your celebration has a vintage vibe, consider giving guests an old-fashioned soda in a glass bottle. This is a great idea too if your reception is outdoors. Attach a cute striped straw tag with ribbon if it matches your theme.
Give your guests a fun DIY task at your wedding by letting them fill their own favor bags with different flavors of mini cookies. Fill large glass containers with five to seven different flavors of cookies – like classic chocolate chip and oatmeal butterscotch, as well as fancier varieties like lemon ricotta and watermelon sugar cookies – and provide scoops and personalized goodie bags for guests to fill.
