When it comes to wedding favors, offer your nearest and dearest an edible (or sippable!) treat for a crowd-pleasing and thoughtful thank you.
If you have the time (and are looking for a manageable DIY project for your wedding), creating an edible wedding favor is the perfect place to add your personalized stamp on the big day. Homemade jam, sauces, or cookies are common go-tos, but if you're nervous about timing or pulling it off like a pro, don't feel compelled to do it on your own. Store-bought edible favors can feel just as special with a few simple upgrades — just adorn a custom tag, recipe card, or thank-you note.
From mini bottles of champagne or the accoutrements for your favorite cocktail to gourmet olive oil or jars of pickles, the options are endless when it comes to picking an edible wedding favor. And while these yummy gifts are an opportunity for you to share something about you and your groom (like mini jars of BBQ sauce from the restaurant where you had your first date), they also offer you the chance to highlight your wedding location. If your destination is known for its abundant sweet honey or is practically synonymous with a traditional dish (like grits in the south or pretzels in Philly), consider giving friends and family those locally-sources treats.
No matter what kind of edible favor you go for, you can be sure that your guests will appreciate the tasty tokens. Plus, they're often more cost-effective than trinket gifts, like picture frames or ornaments (that no one really wants anyway). So you — and your budget — can feel good about picking a sweet, savory, sippable, or spicy favor for your wedding.
Krispy Kreme Donuts
Everyone loves a donut, and your guests will be particularly thankful to have a ready-made breakfast the morning after your nuptials. A mini box of tasty Krispy Kreme donuts is a tasty option, but you could also have your caterer make and package their own confections at the party.
These personalized heart-shaped cookies are from Cake Creamery, a Southern California bakery. But they would be easy to bake and DIY yourself, or with the help of a few bridesmaids!
