Edible Wedding Favors Your Guests Will Savor

Edible Wedding Favors Your Guests Will Savor

Author: Karen Zabel

You know that saying, "The best way to a man's heart is through his stomach?" Well, that goes for wedding guests, too - male or female. If you have a scrumptious spread at your reception, they will stay happy and festive throughout the event. Now imagine if there were a way to keep them in that celebratory state of mind even after your wedding day ends. Perhaps there is a way to do just that - with edible wedding favors! Here are some ideas:


You knew this confectionery favorite would be tops on the list. See if you can picture Hershey's Miniatures Chocolate Wedding Favors wrapped in packaging with a design of your choice. These tiny candy bars are available in milk chocolate, special dark, Krackel, and Mr. Goodbar varieties. This idea also works well with Hershey's Chocolate Bar Wedding Favors in 1.55-ounce or five-ounce sizes for the chocoholics on your wedding guest list. For a romantic touch, choose Hershey's Kisses Wedding Favors which can also be monogrammed or personalized on the bottoms of the wrappers.

Hot beverages

Let your guests think about the warmth of your love on the next cold morning. Personalized coffee wedding favors are 1.75-ounce packets of fresh roasted coffee emblazoned with whatever theme or message you desire. These are available in classic, floral, beach, fall, winter, golf, or monogram themed varieties. Your more discerning friends and family members can enjoy cappuccino wedding favors of 1.25-ounce cappuccino packets. If your guests prefer tea, you may wish to select tea wedding favors. These consist of individual tea bags, each filled with a rich blend of black tea, which can bear a design or message of your choosing. But if you or your guests are not big on caffeine, try the 1.25-ounce cocoa wedding favors instead. Cappuccino, tea, and cocoa favors are all available in standard or monogram themes.

Drink mixes

Make sure the party never ends when the reception closes down. Give your guests some margarita or cosmopolitan wedding favors to take home with them afterwards. These single-serving drink mix packets can produce a tasty cocktail when ice and alcohol are added. For the non-alcoholic and younger crowd, send them home with lemonade wedding favors which need only water and ice. All of these beverage mix packages come in traditional and monogram themed selections.


Ah, the sweet bliss of romance! It may not surprise you to learn that honey symbolized love, beauty, and fertility in early Greece and Rome. In addition, legend has it that Cupid dipped his arrows in honey so they would fill the hearts of his targets with sweetness. So honey wedding favors would make an appropriate favor for those who attended your wedding celebration. Only premium U.S. grade A clover honey is poured into each 1.5-ounce jar, and your personalized design is emblazoned on the outside of each container. Again, traditional and monogram designs are available.

Mints and Nuts

If you choose to have something instead of (or in addition to) chocolate for your guests, there are other options. The 'Mint to Be' Bride and Groom Slide Mint Tins with Heart Mints by Kate Aspen is a stylish yet practical wedding favor. These beautifully-decorated slide mint tins come in both bride and groom designs and contain dozens of delicious heart-shaped mints. A slightly more sophisticated choice is the Bride and Groom Almonds, which are packaged three at a time in pleated candy cups within an acetate box. The candies themselves are hand decorated with confectioner's icing, with multicolored bride and groom designs and the message "Just Married" portrayed on the sides.

Lip balm

Okay, so it isn't edible per se, but it is something that will keep the images of your wedding in your guests' minds for as long as it is used. Each tube of All-Natural Lip Balm is petroleum free and contains vitamin E, nourishing organic oils, and SPF 15. You can also opt for fancier designs in product offerings like the Bride and Groom Lip Balm and the monogrammed lip balm in either damask or polka dots designs.

Most of these items can be personalized with the bride and groom's names as well as the date of the wedding.

With all the pictures, photo albums, and videos, you will always remember your wedding day. But since your guests won't have those things, you should provide them with some wedding favors to help them recall the day you walked down the aisle. In addition, personalized wedding favors are a relatively inexpensive way to thank everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to buy a wedding gift, get dressed up, and make the journey to witness your joyous nuptials. You can rest assured that they will remember not only your special wedding day, but also what generous and kind hosts you were to your guests. This memory will help them remain an integral part of your lives long after the day you said, "I do."

10 Great Birthday Party Places for Kids in the Washington DC Area

So it happens to me every year, actually twice a year since I have two boys.  I wait until the last minute to start planning because I have no idea where to hold their birthday parties.  If you are like me, you prefer to keep people out of the house.  For someone like me it is easier to pay someone to set-up, host, entertain and clean-up.  That way, everyone can pack up and go home without a hassle. While searching online I found a host of unique places that just never come to mind when I'm trying to figure what to do for the kids.  These are in no particular order but I went ahead and compiled a list of my top 10 favorites within the DC, MD and VA (DMV) area.  Feel free to add your own in the comments section below: Backyard Parties:  If you don't want to spend the cash to rent a venue and you have the space in your backyard, I recommend GigMasters .  With GigMasters you can book the services of a clown or magician, rent chairs, tables or even a bounce house.  You t

Bride's or Groom's Name First on Party Favors

When you are planning a wedding there is a lot more to worry about than just ordering your supplies and decorations.  Just like every step of the wedding, there are rules of etiquette on wording for the bride and groom's name. So you may be wondering what name format to use on your  party favors , wedding d├ęcor, invitations, etc.  Is it the Groom's name or the Bride's name first?  First and foremost, I must mention, it is your wedding and your day, so you can do whatever you want to.  However, tradition or custom states a particular order as to whose name goes first. American custom or tradition states the name of the bride precedes the groom's name on any printed items.  So if you are known as "Brian and Sarah", your napkins in this case will be "Sarah and Brian", with Sarah obviously being the bride.  The same applies if you are using  initials or a monogram . So again, you are S&B.  When adding names to party favors, supplies and  deco

My Microblading Experience: Will I do it again?

So I decided to try microblading on my eyebrows. As a side note, if you plan on having it done for your wedding  or other event , I recommend getting the procedure done no less than 3 months before your event.  After scouring the internet and watching countless Youtube videos and checking out Instagram photos, I became obsessed with this new beauty craze. For those of you who aren't familar with microblading, it is a type of permanent makeup for your eyebrows.  Your eyebrows are tattooed with permanent ink.  The ink is deposited under the skin, just like a regular tattoo.  Instead of a tattoo blade, microblading uses several needles formoing a blade to cut the skin.  The result is hairlike brush strokes cuts on the skin which are then filled with your choice of colored ink.  While this is a form of permanent make-up, just like any tattoo, touch ups are needed so it's not a one time permenent thing. If you are like me, before I got the procedure, the main thing you proba
