Favours With Flavour

By  | 

Macaroon Wedding Favours

Move over sugared almonds, there are a few new kids on the block!

Wedding favours are a way of thanking your guests for coming to your special day and making it a memorable occasion. The gift of giving wedding favours to your guests started way back with the French Aristocrats who gave ‘bonbonnieres’ of luxurious sugar cubes, which later moved on to sugared almonds, a choice that many couples still choose to this day.

If you want to break the mould with wedding favours but want to keep on the same ‘foodie’ path there are SO many other sweet treats to thank your guests with…

Cupcakes

Melt in your mouth cupcakes are a sight to behold and will surely put a smile on your guests’ faces. With a little cooking know-how and time on your hands before the big day there is no reason you can’t give these little beauties a whirl yourself! Sumptuous and € savvy. Instead of using paper cases why not try the unusual root of presenting them in mini jam jars?

Cookie Mix

Pretty, tasty and functional these jars of cookie mix are the gifts that keep on giving! You could be relaxing on a tropical beach on honeymoon when your guests are at home making your cookies, with your cookie mix, reminiscing about your amazing day! Of course, you don’t have to stick to a cookie recipe – you could go for hot chocolate, soda or wheaten bread or really test their cooking skills with a fresh pasta mix.

Good Old Favourites

There is nothing simpler or prettier than a little jar filled with jellybeans for both adults and kids at a wedding! Why not choose the bride’s favourite sweets for the female guests and the groom’s favourite for the male guests? Strawberry bon bon anyone?!

Chocolate

From bars of the delicious dark stuff to tempting truffles, you simply cannot go wrong with chocolate!

Coffee

Ok, so not exactly a sweet treat, but probably a welcome sight on the morning after your wedding! You could always choose to tie raffia around a dozen teabags if you think your guests are tea drinkers instead!

Macaroons

Decadent and chic macaroons are the new wedding want!! These little bundles of happiness come in several mouthwatering flavours including caramel with salted butter, pistachio and raspberry, and will add a classic touch of French romance to you big day!

    Hi Mags,

    Candy carts are really popular this year, and a great treat for your guests. There’s lots of chat on our forums about candy carts, so why don’t you search through the posts, or create a new thread yourself?
