Delicious Edible Wedding Favors


Edible wedding favors have been around for a long time, and even decades ago, some classic favors such as almonds and chocolates were already very popular. Generally, because weddings are sweet celebrations, most edible favors that are being given are sweet food items. While there are some that are food condiments or those that are spicy, traditional edible wedding favors are sweet food items. Edible favors are quite a hit because guests can munch on them even on their way home. And because some of these yummy treats are homemade, guests get to appreciate the favors even more.

Here are some of the best loved wedding favors:

– Brownies and other pastries – While most families have their own ‘secret’ brownie recipe that they are proud of, you can use yours as well so your guests can have that special homemade taste. If you do not have the baking know-how or if you are pressed for time, you can order them from your local bakery instead.

– Cookies are everyone’s favorite. And if homemade, you can create your own cookie mold, design them and use different colors on them as well. For orders, you can simply go online and there are lots of flavors and designs available – from heart-shaped cookies to cowboy hat shaped ones.

– Coffee beans – This yummy favor can be packed in smaller quantities. You can package them personally or you can order them in small packets. Add a color personalized label for presentation.

– Tea favors – For a slightly traditional and elegant touch, you give tea favors to your guests. You can have a variety or flavors or you can stick to one flavor for all guests.

– After-coffee mints – Best for evening weddings, the mint tins are also very elegant when personalized and printed with your wedding details. Asides from mints, they can also be filled with nuts or other candies if desired.

– Candied fruits – For a truly sweet favor, candied fruits may be ordered in advance from your favorite candy store. You can have them colored in a special color as well, whether it’s the same as your color motif, or a complimenting shade.

– Chocolates – A fool-proof favor that is sure to please, you can give full chocolate bars or mini chocolate bars. You can have chocolate covered almonds or apples as well.

While most of these wedding favors are preserved and can be stored for weeks, some are fresh food items and you should know how to keep their freshness in tact, otherwise, your dream wedding might turn into a nightmare not just for you but for everyone. On your wedding day, ensure that the room temperature will not damage the item. Your chocolate favors may melt especially if you are in an outside location (such as the beach), or your brownies may lose their soft texture if the room temperature is too low. With adequate preparation and a little thought, you can have great wedding favors that your guests will love.
