Favours – Edible favour ideas

Favours aren’t a necessity at a wedding, and I have been to a fair few where the standard bags of sugared almonds have been left on the tables. However I think that if you provide your guests with something they would actually like to eat (does anyone even like sugared almonds?) then your chances of them being taken home increase tenfold. I would love to be a guest at a wedding where we were given any of these:

Oh wow bloody wow! Mini gumball machines – these are such a cute idea!

Brown paper bags filled with fruit – would make a lovely decorative feature on the tables too – double duty at a rustic wedding 🙂

Candy apples! These remind me of bonfire nights, cold winter evenings and being a kid wearing stripy scarves and tights!

Lots of people have sweety buffets – these double up as perfect favours if you put out some paper candy bags.


My personal favourite: Jam! I love jam – on toast, with scones, sometimes sneakily by itself with a little dip of the finger *shush gross habit* and would probably steal other peoples little pots of jam if I were a guest at this do 🙂
