No matter who you poll about wedding favors, the one thing you'll quickly learn is that everyone—and we mean everyone—wants something they can eat or drink. So while those matchboxes are adorable and the monogrammed koozies are practical for ice-cold beers, it’s time to start thinking about the edible item you want to gift your guests. To get you going: We love the idea of mini bottles of tequila or olive oil for your destination affair. Or mini cakes (in a cute to-go box!) if you’re a major sweet tooth. But the one idea that’s easy to personalize, budget friendly, and taking Instagram by storm? Cookies! And, no, we're not just talking about your grandma's famous chocolate chip. These on-trend sugar cookies are mini works of art in different shapes, colors, and sizes. Think pineapple shapes for a beachside bash, flowers for a garden party, and monograms for a country-club celebration.

So whether you're hosting a shower for girlfriends, attending a stock-the-bar party, or, you know, planning your own big day, think of these pretty cookies as the perfect snacks, hostess gifts, and wedding favors. Here are 10 extra-adorable ones we especially love. Tailor them to your wedding, add in your favorite colors or initials, and then Insta away! We’ll be stalking the #decoratedcookies hashtag on Instagram in the meantime.
