Crowd-Pleasing Edible Wedding Favors: The Sauces & Spices Edition

Favors & Gifts

Giving guests a tasty wedding favor is always a good idea, especially if they're homemade meal accoutrements guests can enjoy at home the next day. Maybe you're known for your killer salsa recipe. Or perhaps you and your groom's first date took place at a local barbecue restaurant. Why not whip up batches of your famous salsa recipe or purchase mini bottles of the restaurant's barbecue sauce to give to guests? They'll appreciate all of the thought and effort into making your wedding send-off gift a delicious one.

Jam (above): Into making jam? Make some batches of your favorite flavor (apricot and habanero sounds amazing, doesn't it?) to give to guests.

Olive Oil: This couple passed out bottles of extra-virgin olive oil bearing a tag printed with the couple's favorite pasta recipe. Love this idea!
