If I do favors, I plan on doing little cellophane bags of candy corn, which sounds like it would be perfect for your wedding. I also considered something homemade, like peanut brittle.

@hotchocolate: First thought was Candy corn put into leaf shaped container or brown satchels? Or chocolates inside an orange satchel? Or orange and brown M&Ms in tins/containers?

And off topic but I think it would be really cute for centerpieces for you to fill hollowed out pumpkins with flowers! that image popped in my head and just sounded so cute!

I like the pumpkin lollipop idea!! And candy corn is cool too!

We’re doing little jars of honey as favours. But our venue sells them so it’s easy. You guys could do cookies with orange icing?

I don’t know if they are inexpensive, but maple syrup hard candies are delicious and usually look cute.  I saw them in the shape of little acorn leaves.

I went to a fall wedding that had small bottles of cider with a personalized label. That was cute, too.

Or apple cider donuts?  You’d have to get them fresh on the wedding day, though.

The two most unique food-favors I’ve seen at a wedding were 

  • A box of 2 Krispy Kreme donuts, which had names on them to double as escort cards (at a summer wedding), and
  • Caramel apples (for a late-October wedding–they also had flower-filled pumpkin centerpieces).

For our wedding in July, we’re doing generic favor bags (but different colors on each table, to match the table numbers) and filling them with blue M&Ms (our main color) and Jelly Bellys.  This is because I am a chocolate kind of girl, and FI is a fruit candy kind of girl.  Thought it represented us both well.

I have contemplated using gummy bears for our wedding favors. I have candy factory a few hours from my house, and they sell every color of gummy bears imaginable. I plan to get 6 or 7 pounds in each of my wedding colors (pink and navy blue). And they’re only $2.50 per pound! You could find a candy store that sells stuff like that in different colors and get orange and yellow or green and orange or whatever you want!

What about carmel apples??

I’ve made carmel apples dipped in white and milk chocolate with sprinkles, nuts, rolled in crushed candy bars, and one’s drizzelled with chocolate and they were not only easy but everyboyd loved them!! Not sure if you want to do DIY but if you enlist the help of BM’s and family you could get them done 2 days before the wedding and all wrapped in wrappers. Mine stayed good for 4 days (and actually longer then that) because I kept them in the basement where it’s cold. It took me 1 day to make 2 dozen by myself. You can get matcing ribbon for your wedding color even. Google carmel apple wedding favors and tons of stuff will come up.
