Chocolate Wedding Favors

Who doesn't love chocolate?

If you are looking for a wedding favor that is almost guaranteed to be a hit, you need to look no further than chocolate.  Just about everyone loves a bit of melt-in-your-mouth chocolate which is why wedding chocolate favors are such a great choice.  To the right you can see images of just a few of the great chocolate options that are available online today.  In addition, you'll find even more ideas listed below.

Hershey Chocolate Bars:  Whether you choose to buy fully assembled chocolate bars or just buy the wrappers to wrap your own locally purchased candy bars, your guests will be impressed with the fully customized wrappers that include your names and wedding date along with a clever ingredients list on the back label.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups:  You can buy monogrammed or personalized themed circular labels that are just the right size to put on the bottom of Reese's peanut butter cups.  Nothing beats the taste of chocolate and peanut butter except the fact that these ones are personalized too!

Hershey's Kisses:  Just like the peanut butter cups, you can buy small round labels to adhere yourself or buy them already assembled with your initials, monogram or names along with a fun design.  Put a few inside a tulle circle or bag and you'll have the perfect wedding favor.

York Peppermint Patties:  Let your guests feel the sensation when they unwrap these silver foil covered peppermint patties that feature custom labels that are imprinted with your names, wedding date, and design of your choice.

Hershey Mini Chocolate Bars:  Your guests will enjoy popping a few of these mouth-watering delights in their mouths.  Buy the wrappers or the fully assembled bars that are customized with your wedding details.

Decorated Truffles: Truffles and petit fours are now available dusted with powdered sugar designs. You can get your initials or any design you like stenciled on top. A very upscale and mouthwatering treat.

Double-Dipped Chocolate-Covered Cherries: These little confections come dipped in white or dark chocolate, with or without sprinkles and are boxed.

One Fine Chocolate: Of course, one single piece of the finest chocolate money can buy is always a treat. High end stores and bakeries carry Godiva and Lindt chocolates that are so decadent you really only need to eat one. And they look festive on the tables when you place one at each setting.

Wedding Drink Favors

Personalized drinks they can enjoy at home!

The truly great thing about personalized wedding drink favors is that they are available in numerous "flavors" and they can be fully customized with the bride and groom's names, the wedding date, and the design of your choice.

As you can see below, you can get wedding drink packets filled with a variety of mix options such as gourmet coffee, cappuccino, hot chocolate, lemonade, gourmet tea, apple cider, or cocktails including margaritas or cosmopolitans.  So choose a drink mix that is suitable for your wedding season.  If you are having a summer wedding, go with lemonade or cocktail mixes, but if you are having a winter wedding, consider the coffee, hot chocolate, or tea packets.

In addition to choosing your mix, you can normally choose from hundreds of unique label designs that go on the packets.  There are seasonal label choices that cover fall, winter, and summer as well as theme options such as golf, beach, or garden designs.  The options are truly endless which is why drink favors are such a great choice no matter what your wedding theme or color scheme.

Jelly Beans:  Packets of jelly beans like the ones shown to the right or Jelly Belly Jelly Beans in a color that matches your wedding color scheme can be packaged inside clear candy jars for your guests.

Bubble Gum:  Many companies online sell cute personalized packets of bubble gum, traditional bubble gum dispensers, and even mini slot machines filled with gum like the ones shown in the photo to the right.  They are cute for a retro or Vegas wedding.

Lollipops: These treats on a stick are available in numerous flavors and you can buy round stickers that feature your names and wedding date along with a design that matches your color scheme and wedding theme perfectly.

Local Honey & Syrup Favors

Locally and seasonally inspired wedding favors are a great choice no matter what the season.  Here are just a few gourmet food favor ideas.

Olive Oils and Gourmet Foods: Upscale olive oils, olives, honey, biscotti and more are all being packaged and personalized for weddings. You can choose from an array of treats to match your wedding theme from hot sauce or gourmet ketchup for a backyard wedding to maple syrup for a New England event.

Native Goods: If there’s a specialty edible you can only get in your hometown, bring that in as a favor. Maple syrup candies from a small Vermont town or barbecue sauce from an award winning local restaurant add a personal touch. A local orchard’s apples or wine from a small vineyard are always appreciated.

Baked Good Wedding Favors

Give them some goodness in every bite!

Chocolate Covered Goodies with Your Photo: A picture of the happy couple plus a delectable treat, what could be better?  You can find several companies that sell chocolate dipped Oreos, rice krispie bars, and gourmet brownies that will print your photo on edible paper and adhere it to the chocolate on top your favorite goodie.

Custom Fortune Cookies:  How about some chocolate covered fortune cookies that are decorated with wedding themed royal icing decorations and feature a custom fortune that you create on the inside.  A fun and tasty treat.

Cut-Out Cookies:  Whether you decide to bake them yourself or buy them at a local or online bakery, iced cookies that are shaped like wedding cakes, gowns, or tuxes are a great edible favor choice.

Rice Crispy Picture Treats: Who knew your favorite breakfast cereal would show up at a wedding? Companies are offering Rice Crispy treats on a stick. And they’ll even scan your photo (or a photo of anything you like) right onto them in edible icing.

Baking Mixes: You can create your own baking mix from Grandma’s recipe or you can order pre-made mixes that can be personalized. Muffins, cakes, and breads are all nice treats and come with a small wire whisk to add to a country homey feel. It is nice when the guests get home and bake their goodies that they’ll be remembering your wedding day.

Couture Cupcakes: You can buy cupcakes online that are decorated with every kind of design under the sun. Frostings come in a rainbow of colors and you can get cupcake boxes that make travel easy (if the guests don’t eat them before they even leave the reception). You can even have your whole “cake” done in tiers of cupcakes. It makes cake serving time easier and guests love the surprise.

The edible favors are such a great idea!

I love the idea of edible wedding favors. They are so much better than worthless trinkets. I'll pin this to my favors board at Pinterest.

I love the idea of edible wedding favors, guest feel strangely obligated to keep other non edible favors and honestly they just clutter up a house. It's hard to come up with a great wedding favor and yet this idea is hands down my fave as people always remember a delicious and tasty wedding treat. Fond memories are priceless.

These are so cute! I wish I had these options when I got married. I guess I did but was just not aware of them. Thanks for sharing.
