Edible Wedding Favours

A Wedding favour is one of those things that is an important gesture of gratitude that you shower upon your guests to say ‘Thank You for supporting us on our big day!’ But let’s be real, once your big day is over, most wedding favours end up sitting on some shelf in a dingy room at the far end of the basement collecting dust.

OR, your guests simply don’t even bother leaving with one, so you end with 100 of them in your own basement collecting dust.

OR, they toss the damn thing in the trash!

Instead of sending your guests home with trinkets that they will never use or simply throw in the garbage, how about you give them something edible?

Most people will appreciate an edible wedding favour that they can devour on their way home from your festive celebration, or once they gather themselves the following morning from their hang-over!
Check out these 35 edible wedding favours for some inspiration!

1. Gourmet Popcorn: Get things poppin’ with a delicious popcorn blend. Popcorn can be an inexpensive edible wedding favour that your guests can enjoy once they get home. It keeps well over time and you can get imaginative with flavour options.

2. Cookies: You can never, ever, ever go wrong with some decadent cookies!

3. Donuts: If there is one food trend that is still going strong it is definitely donut mania.

4. Mason jar dessert: A few years ago I thought that the Mason Jar hysteria that was going on was fading away, but people are still raving about them. You can get creative with what you fill them with, from cakes to cheesecakes or even ingredients from your favourite recipe so that your guests can make their own desserts at home.

5. Cookie mix: Whatever you can do to simplify people’s lives is always a plus.
