Are you and your S.O. huge foodies? You know, the types of people who dine out at trendy restaurants at least twice a week and can’t help but hit the newest hot spots as soon as they open? We think edible wedding favours are a great way to share your love of amazing eats and tasty treats with your wedding guests. From macarons to olive oil, there are plenty of sweet and savoury options worth looking into for your wedding favours.
Here are a few of our favourite edible wedding favour ideas.
Cookie wedding favours
Now’s the time to put your grandma’s (or Martha Stewart’s) kickass cookie recipe to use. Spend a few evenings with your bridesmaid squad cooking and packaging up homemade wedding favours from the comfort of your own kitchen for some squad bonding. Classic chocolate chip is a tried and true option, but don’t be afraid to experiment (just make a test batch before you make hundreds). If you’re not confident in your baking skills, you can always ask a seasoned pro t0 handle the job for you.
Chocolate wedding favours
Chocoholics will love being treated to a few truffles or a chocolate pop at the end of the evening. Sure, they’ll probably be stuffed after tucking into one or two pieces of your ganache-coated wedding cake, but these bite-sized treats make for a great late-night snack (or post-wedding weekend indulgence).
Your guests may need to spend a few days recovering from your wedding festivities by kicking back in their apartment and watching Netflix. And what does every movie marathon need? Popcorn, obviously. Give them bags of caramel or buttered popcorn or provide them with the kernels so they can make it themselves—this’ll save them from making a trip to the store, which they will love you for.
If you and your partner are huge hot sauce fanatics, this is the perfect favour for you. Buy itty bitty bottles of Sriracha, Frank’s and Tabasco or head to a local grocer or farmer's market to find some artisanal options. There’s a strong possibility that your guests will want to dig into these wedding favours during dinner, so we suggest leaving them on (or near) their plates.
Jams and jellies have been popular edible wedding favour ideas for a while now, especially for a rustic wedding. For something more foodie focused, how about gifting guests with savoury fig chutney or cilantro radish pickles?
Every kitchen needs a good bottle of olive oil, so gift some to your guests. Yes, the original flavour will do just fine, but if you want to do something a little different, give one infused with rosemary, garlic or chilli. Pair it with a flavoured Balsamic vinegar to put your wedding favours above and beyond.
Macaron wedding favours
No, you can’t give all your guests a trip to France, but you can take their tastebuds there by offering up macarons as your wedding favours. They can be crafted in just about every colour and flavour under the sun, so you can have them match your wedding theme and colour scheme.
Ah, yes, everyone’s favourite trendy treat. Instead of hitting Tim Horton’s and ordering hundreds of honey crullers and Timbits from the poor unassuming drive-thru attendant, turn to the experts. They’ll be able to whip up some magical favour-worthy pastries that’ll have your guests drooling.
Take your guests back to the days of summer camp bonfires by gifting them with DIY s’mores kits or s’mores trail mix. Everyone, no matter what their age, loves the tasty trifecta of marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers, so these are bound to be a hit.
Pick ‘n’ mix sweets
Not sure what to give your guests? Let them choose their own wedding favours. Fill a table with pick ‘n’ mix sweets like jelly beans, gummy bears, dew drops, mini eggs and more. Don’t forget to stock the bar with personalized wedding favour bags or boxes so they have something to carry their goodies home in.
Maple syrup wedding favours
For a Canadian-themed wedding favour idea, gift your guests with a mini-bottle of maple syrup. You can usually find them at a local farmer's market or order personalized bottles online from a local supplier or Etsy.
Mason jar dessert
Here’s a really sweet idea. Send your guests home with a mason jar filled with dessert. Fabulous Fresh Wedding Favors offers flavours like lemon and coconut cupcake, chocolate cake with mint cream and rhubarb-strawberry cheesecake. Yum!
