Our wedding is coming up soon (10.14.17) & we are scrambling to figure out what wedding favor to get for our guests. I have been researching to find that people love edible wedding favors. I would agree with that statement! Check out my poll for some favor ideas I came up with, HOWEVER I would love suggestions! 🙂
As a side note, we are having a sparkler send off, so each guest will get a sparkler. Also, we are doing a dessert table, where guests can help themselves to anything on the dessert table and take it home as well.
I understand some people have the dessert table as the favor, however I would like to have something at each seat as well.
*Note, for the liquor/champagne favors, we are having 10 guests under 21 years old. How would you work around that? I like to have everything at their seats already and I don’t know where everyone specifically will sit, I am only assigning them to a table.

It’s between the liquor (wine is probably better since pero are particular about their drinks) or cupcakes. My only concern with the cupcakes is that I’m usually done with sweets by the end of the night -after cake- and I end up skipping them.

Several of those sounded good! I could see myself getting the most pleasure out of sipping cider on the way home or next morning. I’d probably already be filled up with sweets and booze.

Yes: Mini Pasteurized Apple Cider Favors? –> from a local farm
No way: I dont really like Smores
Yes, alcohol is always good to me!: Mini Liquor/Champagne Bottles (below let me know which kind)
Eh, i’m nto crazy sweet tooth person, but I’d enjoy that. Cupcakes in a Mason Jar
Yuck: Chocolate Caramel Apples
Never: Krispy Kreme Donuts
Sure: Truffles in a Box

The mini Apple ciders sound awesome! If we do any favors at all it will probably be something similar.

I would happily take any of the above except Smores. I’m not a huge Smores fan, but the rest of those options sound awesome. I love cupcakes, but if you’re already serving cake is probably go for the donuts or caramel apples (assuming they’re wrapped to take home).

They all sound good. If I was a guest, I would be happy with any of the options above.

It all sounds fab. Smores seem very seasonal. I really like doughnuts too. I’d have drunk enough that alcohol wouldn’t be of interest but something to take away to nibble would be lovely.

I would honestly leave all of them but the local apple cider or truffles. Smores need to be hot, not a drinker, I wouldn’t want more cake after a dessert bar, Krispy Kreme is best fresh, and after sugary dessert, I wouldn’t want more sugar on Carmel apples.
I think the best favors mean something or have something to do with the couple or where the wedding is, so a fall wedding local cider seems awesome!

“Fun” fact: sparklers burn at 1800* to 3000*F. If you will have guests who are children, have been drinking, have cognitive or impulse control impairments, or are just plain idiots, this could be a really bad idea.
I voted for the apple cider. I would have chosen the caramel apple if I weren’t vegan though!

My initial fave was the truffle box though I guess it could be redundant if you have a candy bar at your wedding. The little bottles of cider or liquor sound adorable, but they are so adorable that I would probably take a long time to get around to using it.

I voted for truffles! Yum!
Cider would also be neat. And I admit I’m curious about the Shark Tank Cupcakes in a Jar. Either of these would be great choices, I think.
Donuts aren’t very special (and aren’t great leftover), caramel apples are messy, smores are messy (and need to be hot), and I’m not a big drinker, so that’s why I would leave the others on the table.

Apple cider would be great! We actually considered that since it’s a seasonal thing (date twins!), but went with smores because we’re having a bonfire as long as the weather cooperates. But most people don’t have a fire pit readily available at their wedding.

Thank you for your votes & responses! We have decided to go with quart-sized apple cider from a local farm. If anyone plans on doing this, it’s rather inexpensive compared to other options & I feel good supporting a local small business. They are only charging me $1.70 each and we are getting 80 of them.
