Choosing your wedding favours is no easy feat. You want to select gifts that aren’t too expensive but will leave your guests with an awesome trinket (or snack) when your wedding wraps. If you can’t decide on a theme, why not go with some Canadian wedding favours and pay homage to the great white north? We’ve narrowed down some fun, not-so-cheesy options that your guests are guaranteed to love.
Here are a few ultra Canadian wedding favours that your guests will love.
Sure, Canadians loving maple everything may be a stereotype, but it’s pretty darn accurate. If you’re into the idea of edible wedding favours and want to give your guests something to remind them of the true north strong and free, go with maple syrup, maple candies (Squish sells some adorably packaged ones) or maple baked goods.
Saskatoon berry jam
Have you opted for a shabby chic wedding theme in a barn or forest venue? Well, you’re going to want some rustic wedding favours to match. A fan favourite in this category is jams and preserves, and while any seasonal fruit will do the trick, we suggest going with Saskatoon berry jam to pay homage to your Canadian roots.
No company is more Canadian than Hudson’s Bay, so if you want some really patriotic favours, opt for something with white, green, red, yellow and blue stripes. The brand sells everything from luggage tags to Moleskine notebooks, so you’re bound to find something that fits your celebration perfectly.
Fact: Canadian winters can be harsh. If you’re hosting a fall or winter wedding, help your guests prep for the sleet, snow and bitter winds by giving them some cozy accessories. Hats, mittens, gloves and scarves are all awesome options. Pro tip: if you really want them to fit with your wedding, purchase them in colours that complement (or match) your wedding colour scheme.
OK, so craft beer isn’t only available in Canada, but most canucks enjoy themselves a hoppy beverage every now and again. So long as your guests are of or over the legal drinking age, send ‘em off a tall can from your favourite local spot. This to-go beverage could come in handy at your after party (or at a follow-up event the next day). P.S. if you’re not a beer fan, you could always go with bottles of vino from a nearby winery.
