Food Wedding Favours

I often get asked what makes for a good wedding favour.  I am a huge fan of something edible.  A favourite bakery like Billy's Bakery, candy store like Pappabubble, or chocolate shop like Burdick Chocolate make for a sweet treat for your guests to eat on the way home.  Incorporating something to do with the city you are getting married, or perhaps where you are from is also a great idea.  Maybe your family is from the south, and you could do grits with a tasty shrimp and grits recipe.wedding favor shrimp and grits-1

Popbar

Jaine from Brklyn View introduced me to Popbars, hot chocolate on a stick.  They come in white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate (my favourite).  Heat up some milk and stir your Popbar in the milk for 1-2 minutes until it melts.  Perfect thing to warm you up in these colder winter months.  These would make for a cozy wedding favour at a winter wedding.pop bar hot chocolate on a stick-3

A Warming Beverage

For their winter wedding in London, Marie and John put in a lot of work into creating their wedding favours which doubled as place settings.  They bought little clear glass bottles with cork stoppers and filled them with whisky for the gentlemen and sloe gin for the ladies.  Something nice and warming for a December wedding!  On each bottle they tied a luggage tag with guests names for the place cards.  On back of the tag they hand wrote a personal message to each and every guest.  It was a time consuming project for over a hundred guests, but definitely one that every guest appreciated. Such a sweet way to honour each of your loved ones at the wedding.
