Favors are a way to say thank you to your guests, and to give them a gift that will remind them of the special day they shared with you. We understand that you don’t want to give the same old thing that just gets thrown into the junk drawer. We also know that you don’t want to go broke either. So, we’ve searched for new and different wedding favors, even updated a few for you. Here you are.
Candied or chocolate covered apples:
Who can turn these sweet treats down? There are a million different ways to have these decorated. Totally decadent ones are covered in caramel rolled in nuts or candy pieces and then drizzled with chocolate! Or try just candied apples for a fall wedding like the ones you’d purchase at your local orchard. We’ve also seen these decorated and designed to look like they are wearing little wedding gowns and tuxedos.
Custom Fortune Cookies:
These can be designed to be so cute especially when covered in a sweet chocolate glaze possibly with a few heart sprinkles on top. Wrap them up in cellophane and tie a ribbon on the end. Insert messages that say something like: Thank You from the bride and groom, or: Here’s to a life of good fortune!
Personalized bottles of soda:
Send your guest’s home completely refreshed by personalizing bottles of your favorite drink. You can custom make labels to cover bottles or you can order personalized ones from different companies like Jones soda. Jones, offers a lot of different concoctions that taste really great and come in very vivid colors!
Jars of apple butter and honey:
These are a really affordable idea. They are also pretty easy to do yourself if you would like. Our advice would be to invite all of your friends over and have them help you whip up several batches. Then dish them out into glass mason jars. Attach a small tag and some super cute labels finally line the lids with a square of fabric.
Jelly beans or M &M’s:
Place a good size scoop of them in each of your wedding colors in a clear bag and tie off with some raffia or ribbon. Place a sticker on the bags with your names and date. These are an especially great idea if you have a significant amount of children attending. This way you won’t need to have more than one favor, it’s a great one size fits all!
