20 Edible Wedding Favors That Are Impossible to Leave Behind

Why are edible wedding favors always the best wedding favor idea? Um, you can eat them. No wedding guest forgets an edible favor on their chair or on the table by the exit. It’s just a fact. Monogrammed shot glasses, maybe. A box of matches, probably. But chocolate chip cookies, herb-infused olive oil, or hot cider doughnuts? Those kinds of treats rarely get left behind. Since they’ll be so popular, plan to make or order extras, just in case. (And don’t forget to double-check the groups’ allergy situation.)The best part about sending guests home with something edible (or drinkable) is how personal you can make it. If you spent half your relationship on the hunt for the best hot sauce, your top-choice bottle is basically a built-in favor idea. Did you meet over tacos and tequila? Hand out nips of your favorite tequila. If you're getting married in the town where you grew up, pass out fudge from the family-owned neighborhood sweet shop, jars of local honey, or your go-to coffee shop's award-winning French roast.You could also offer up DIY treats—DIY for the guests, that is. Individually packaged s'mores kits, hot chocolate fixings or brownie mix are a fun way to keep the party going after the night’s over. But delicious favors don’t need to be perfectly wrapped and eaten later. Surprise everyone with late-night bites from a food truck or dessert bar (anything from an old-fashioned cotton candy stand to a pizza truck will do).If you’re looking for the perfect party favor for your guests, check out these creative and crowd-pleasing eats no one will leave without.
