We love wedding favours.
They’re a small detail, they’re often overlooked, and sometimes (despite you so carefully hand-tying each one with the perfectly-matched coral twine) they often get left behind by your guests.
But not these ones… Because these ones, are edible!
We love how wedding favours can be a detail of your wedding that allows you to play around, have some fun, and add a real personal touch.
From homemade baked goods to artisan eats, foodie favours are great conversation starters, can have many meanings behind them, are often budget friendly, and are also more useful than many other kinds of favours.
We love a monogrammed scented candle as much as the next wedding blogger, but give us a macaroon, and we’re yours forever!
Fresh fruit wedding favours have been really popular over the last year or two, but we love this idea of using edible gold spray paint on your produce for a really memorable touch.
Cookies by Nila Holden
If you want something every guest will love (and eat!) opt for a pretty cookie that looks as good as it tastes.
For a personal touch, go for some bespoke bites from an artisan baker like Nila Holden.
Pie Thank You
Pies are becoming a new wedding cake alternative, but if you want your to have your cake and still have room for pies, why not make them a favour?
We can’t get enough of cherry, pecan, apple or peach, or even go Aussie or British on it, and gift your guests with meat pies instead.
Truffles by ChocOnChoc
Truffle chocolates make very chic and elegant wedding favours, and you can add your own spin by opting for a favour flavour that’s personal to you. (Champagne is our fave!).
Or for a fun twist, we love this ice-cream cone idea from gifted chocolatiers, ChocOnChoc.

Everyone loves s’mores, right? So if you want a favour that’s guaranteed to please, why not make your own kit?
Chocolate, plain digestives, and marshmallow is all you need for a cost effective wedding favour, that will result in sticky fingers and happy guests!
Getting married in Ireland? Give the gift of Guinness, whiskey, or soda bread. England? Earl Grey teabags. New England? Maple Syrup. Greece? Olive Oil or Ouzo. You get the picture.
Whether it’s Limoncello or Tequila, Belgian chocolates or Cornish pasties, nodding to your local delicacies with your favours is a lovely way to welcome guests to your wedding.

Is there anything lovelier than a crisp on the outside, soft on the inside, delicious all-over macaroon? No, we really don’t think there is! Macaroons might be an old favourite, but we still love their pretty colours, versatile flavours, and endlessly elegant look.
Head to Anges De Sucre for inspiration, they’ve even got a Muffle (that’s macaroon truffle – yum!) hybrid.
Keep your guests partying to the wee hours, or bring them down gently with a midnight snack that’ll meet the mood.
Lavender tea and honey biscuits are a great before-bed bite, or fizzy sweets and cola will be the sugar rush they need to hit the dancefloor.
The Perfect Blend
Are you and your beau coffee fiends? Then why not create your very own wedding day blend?
Pumpkin spice, French vanilla, or a dark Jamaican blend, gift your guests with a roast that they can take home and toast to your marriage every morning!
Spread The Love
Pineapple jam, lavender honey, chilli chutney, mango relish, or hazelnut chocolate – whether you make it yourself, use a local producer, or your favourite big brand, we love the idea of sharing a little pot of something you love with your guests.
And if you’re a crafty couple, be sure to check out this post that’s…ahem…jam packed with DIY jam wedding favours!
