Simple Edible Wedding Favor Ideas Your Guests Will Definitely Love
Edible wedding favors are a cost-effective and delicious gift for your guests. Check out some of our favorite ideas.
The tradition of wedding favors dates all the way back to the 16th century. Couples would give guests a tiny edible wedding favor to thank them for traveling far and wide to attend their wedding. The wedding favors ranged from tiny pastries to sugared almonds (think the classic Jordan almond). Over time the favor themselves have evolved but the concept is still the same: thanking your guests for taking the time to celebrate with you and your new spouse.
Wedding favors, especially edible ones, don’t have to be elaborate gifts. You can give a simple and meaningful delicacy that still packs a punch. Some brides and grooms like to gift a cookie or goodie from their favorite restaurant. Others opt to bottle up their favorite condiment, coffee grounds, or drink mix. Offering an edible wedding favor is a great time to roll up your sleeves for a little DIY moment. But if you are short on time you can always shop local and find a yummy item from your favorite hometown vendor or wedding destination. Not only will your guests appreciate the tasty treat but gifting an item that can be enjoyed is much more sustainable than a trinket that they may toss in the trash.
