Edible and Unique Wedding Favors

Updated on February 9, 2015

Wedding favors are not the main part of a wedding party and not the most important thing too, but wedding favor could be a reminder for the guests of the couple. Sending our guests home with a little something is a pleasure to do. The wedding favor does not have to be expensive. We could make them by ourselves or ask our family and friends to help. Edible wedding favors could be a great thing to consider. A really great way to stay within your wedding budget, practice your baking skills and send guests home with a delicious personalized memento of the day is to use edible wedding favors. Cookies are a time honored classic. With cookie cutter shapes ranging from the classic hearts and flowers to stars, moon, shells, and leaves, you'll have an array of designs to choose from.

What to consider in choosing edible wedding favor

First, choose the unique and memorable box favor packaging. It's important because edible wedding favor could be eaten in a second and you don't want your guests loss memory of the wedding. So, the packaging will be important thing. You could make homemade packaging, not expensive and unique. Give your personal touch in the packaging. Or you could buy the packaging

Second, you have to prepare more time to make the favor if you'd like to make it yourself. Try to make the favor first before like chocolate pralines, cookies, etc. If you choose to buy them, arrange the design with the chef first, so they could prepare the favors well.

Some Edible and Unique Wedding Favors

1. Chocolate Praline
Chocolate pralines are common edible wedding favors. Use your imagination and taste to make the delicious chocolate praline. You can fill it with any filling or fill it with liquor. For instance, make a heart-shaped box from chocolate and decorate it with ribbon. place it in a single favor box, give the thank you tag.

2. Cupcakes
Make a unique cupcakes with pretty edible pearls for instance. If your wedding near with seasonal holiday like Halloween, Thanksgiving, Easter, or Christmas you may make the design according to the holiday.

3. Cookies
I love cookies and you may choose various of cute and pretty cookie cutter.

4. Mini Coffee or Tea bags

Add some mini chocolate powder bags to take away with the cup.

      Edible makes so much sense! I've had the best chocolates from my son's wedding. I like the idea of teas too. And so much less waste.

      Good ideas. Thank you!
