If you've been to many weddings, you may have noticed that often times many of the favors are left behind after guests leave. It's rare that anyone can resist a sweet treat though, so giving away edible wedding favors is an excellent way to make sure no favor is left over at the end of the wedding reception!
Once you've decided on what type of tasty treat to give away, you'll need to figure out an impressive way to package or present those favors. WhereBridesGo.com has a few fun ideas on how to do this.
The Candy Buffet
Anyone with a sweet tooth loves walking into a wedding reception and seeing a table full of delicious candies laid out for the taking! This can be bowls and jars filled with either wrapped candies or unwrapped candies with scoops for serving. It's your choice whether those candies are color-coded to match the wedding or there is a rainbow of choices displayed.
Place adorable wedding favor boxes or bags near the candies for guests to package their preferred treats in. You may want to make labels telling everyone what type of candy is in each container. You could also display a sign labeling the table itself, like our Love is Sweet Canvas Wedding Sign.
Table Decor You Can Eat
A pretty container filled with edible favors at each place setting on the reception tables can do double duty as wedding decorations too. Some of the containers in our online wedding store can be labeled with each guest's name, meaning you've given them yet another function as place cards.
Don't expect most of your guests to wait until dessert to dig into these adorable favors. They'll very likely be gobbled up before the first dinner plate is served!
Tasty Thank Yous
You can also incorporate edible wedding favors as an end of the celebration "Thank You" to all of the friends and family that joined you for this special day. They should be displayed near the reception exit to make sure that everyone sees them and has a chance to pick one up on their way out.
The display can consist of tiered trays or large bowls or baskets placed on a table. If most of your guests will be leaving at the same time, you could even ask your flower girl or other members of the wedding party to stand at the exit and pass the favors out.
These are just a few wedding planning ideas that will both make your reception look more beautiful and add another memorable quality for your guests.
