“This candy is so damn yummy!” exclaims one of your wedding guests on his way back from your wedding, while the candy is slowly melting in his mouth.
What a fabulous job you did, in the act of saying ‘Thanks’ to your guests, for marking their presence at your ceremony. After all, that’s what Wedding Favours are meant for!
Usually, presenting Wedding Favours to the guests is thought of as a formality. Couples know it deep inside that those Favours are eventually going to end up in the garbage. So, they choose something according to that perception.
But, wait a minute! Why would you want to do that, if you can get some really useful alternatives, that too at the same price? Yeah, that’s true. Don’t believe us?
Well, to provide some evidence, we have made a list of 11 Edible items (some of them are not actually edible, but somehow related) you could use as Wedding Favours. But, before that, we’ll answer a question that’s probably springing up in your mind – Why edible?! Umm, let us explain.
Why Edible Wedding Favours
Traditionally, the custom at weddings has been to hand over a little bag containing five sweet-flavoured almonds which symbolize the five blessings of Health, Wealth, Happiness, Long Life and Fertility.
So, you see, Edible Wedding Favours have been traditionally acceptable. Wouldn’t you love it if the favours offered by you actually add value and make life more pleasurable for your guests? Apart from the tradition’s point of view, Edible Wedding Favours promise that your guests would be glad they were present at your wedding ceremony, every time they use these items!
So now, let’s show you the list. Some of them will instantly make your mouth water, while the uniqueness of some others will take you by surprise! And, you’re not going to believe it, but all of them are actually handmade and mostly contain natural ingredients! So, let’s go!

1. McFaddy Sweet Toffee:
Want to show your guests you really care? Perfect! These candies are multipurpose i.e. they are tasty, while at the same time also take amazingly good care of your guests’ health. These are available in 5 different flavours.
Ever heard of Matcha Green Tea flavour candies?! Yes, that’s one of the five flavours. Some of the amazing health benefits of Matcha Green Tea include:
- It is high in antioxidants
- A great stress buster
- Boosts memory and concentration
- Burns calories
- Detoxifies the body

- Improves cholesterol
Amazing, isn’t it? And, what’s even better is that the entire range of health benefits comes with the taste of a candy! Keep in mind this is only one of the flavours we talked about. The other flavours have excellent qualities of their own.
2. The Chili Salt Gift Box:
Let us give you an idea that will ‘spice up’ your guests’ lives. The Chili Salt Gift Box by ‘The Chili Lab’ contains Chipotle, PiriPiri, and Pequin chili salts, which range from being mildly spicy to highly spicy.
Apart from appealing to guests who love spices, the scintillating flavour is also capable of turning those other guests into spice-lovers forever. Excellent bet!
3. Assorted Coconut Macaroons:
This one is a superb idea, especially if you’re going for a Beach Wedding Theme. Who doesn’t love Macaroons?
Add to that the Coconut flavour and you end up offering a wedding favour that your guests are going to love you for! Also, keep in mind that these are made using only natural ingredients without any added flavouring oils. So, it takes care of your guests’ health too! And oh, quite an affordable price tag.
4. Chocolate Honey Truffle Set:
Just try to imagine the flavour that you get from blending chocolate with honey. Couldn’t perfectly imagine? Well, not your fault, it literally is beyond imagination how they slowly melt in your mouth to make you feel like heaven! You’ve got to try it for yourself to actually understand the real experience.
An excellent wedding favour idea to pamper your guests’ taste buds! Mouth-watering already? See, we promised you in the beginning!
5. Decanter Set:
We would like to call it ‘The Perfect Luxury Wedding Favour’. Yes, it’s slightly on the higher side, as far as the price is concerned. But, the value it can deliver to your guests is mind-blowing!
Decanting wine serves a pretty specific purpose i.e. to remove sediment and encourage oxidation. The oxidation process, in turn, triggers the release of more aromatic compounds, which ultimately enhance the overall drinking experience. And not to forget, the striking aesthetic value that comes with using a decanter!
