Last week, we spent a day scouring the aisles of the Fancy Food Show, searching for the best edible favor (and welcome basket addition) ideas we could get our hands (and taste buds!) on. While we already discussed the artisan caramel trend, there were many other sweet wedding favor ideas that we’d thought you’d like to know about. Check out some of our favorites:

Better Together Bake Shop brownies

Could these brownies have a more wedding-appropriate name? Lots of flavors to choose from (how amazing would pumpkin brownies be for a fall wedding?), and they’ll create custom labels for special orders.

This week, we visited the Fancy Food Show at the Washington Convention Center to search for the coolest new edible wedding favor ideas. Of course, we saw lots of chocolate – the most obvious choice for a sweet favor. But we were delighted to see many other options – in particular, artisan caramels. It’s a bit of a foodie-friendly twist on the candy favor, and there were lots of flavor and packaging options to choose from. Check out four of our favorite caramel companies. Even though these sweets are sold all over the country, for a local twist, hand out caramels that are made near your hometown or wedding location – they also make great welcome-basket additions!

Mouth Party Caramels, Baltimore, Maryland

A cool collection of flavors, like Cappuccino, Cinnamon, and OMG! (a chocolate caramel with fleur de sel), plus some pretty packaging options.

Double-Duty Favors

Posted by bridalbuds on Jan 21, 2009

I love candles, so it made sense to have candles as our favors as well. But, Calla Lily Dude and I both hated the idea of giving out pointless trinkets… And then we figured out the perfect favor to give our guests!

Early on in the planning process we decided we wanted to do a unity candle lighting during our ceremony, with all of our guests participating. So, the candles guests will use during the ceremony for the unity candle lighting will double as favors!
