From a fun photo booth to a cool fast food truck, you have made sure that everything about your wedding is not basic. Then why are those dabbas of mithai and pista badam still making it to your wedding favours? When it comes to distributing gifts to those who made it to your wedding, think a lil hatke. This doesn’t mean that to make your guests happy, you have to break the bank. You can gift your guests the most memorable stuff that also doesn’t cost you a fortune if you know the right spot to hit and nothing can beat the pleasure of devouring good food.
So ditch the good ol’ mithais and gift these edible wedding favours to your guests and spoil them for good.
Baked goods are one of the most drool-worthy wedding favour options that you just can’t go wrong with. Here’s everything baked that can go on your list:
Because weddings and cakes go hand-in-hand. Organise them in cute boxes so that your guests can take them home. If you want you can also get these customised around a theme.
Do you know anybody out there who doesn’t like cookies? Definitely not! Ditch the regular ones and experiment with offbeat flavours like red velvet, cinnamon and peanut butter to treat the taste buds of your guests. You can also add a personal touch to the gift by customising the cookies- get the names of the guests iced on top of the cookies!
The sweetest favours for the sweetest bunch of people out there. We aren’t talking about the usual box of burfi and laddoo you get in every shaadi. To make your wedding memorable for your guests, gift them some new age mithai as wedding favours for your guests. What’s better than delicious doughnuts?! Probably glazed doughnuts!
Chocolate is love and giving your guests some love on your big day makes so much sense. Consider these chocolate favour options and let your guests rejoice.
Take cuteness to the next level with customised candies. Fun and colourful, candies are great edible wedding favours not just for kids but anyone with a sweet tooth. Monogram the candies for a personalised touch!
Delight your guests with some healthy chocolates. After all that sinful food they've gorged on at your wedding, these healthy chocolates will be very appreciated! There are brands out there selling vegan, soy and gluten free options too.
Want to stick to conventional wedding favours? How about a box of chocolate coated dry fruits? It's the perfect modern-day twist on those good ol' dry fruit hampers. Get them coated with chocolate or gur! Almonds coated with jaggery and pistachios covered with cinnamon will be a total favourite.
Delicious chocolate or cheese fondue stored in a jar will send your guests on a trip to France. Cute to look at and great to taste, doesn’t this sound so much better than that mithai ka dabba?
With everyone getting health conscious these days, it wouldn’t hurt if you consider a few healthy options for your wedding favours. Here are a few things that everyone will totally appreciate!
Such a sweet treat to end a day full of love, laughter and celebrations. A glass jar full of organic honey packed with a beautiful fabric and a cute thank you note hanging on the neck, is there anything that sounds better?
Bring a touch of healthy eating into the lives of your wedding guests. Customised bottles of olive oil are both, fancy and healthy! Place some bone-dry herbs at the bottom of the bottle, put the oil in and then seal it with a note!
Dry fruits and exotic fruits like berries and kiwis make a super luxe gift not only for the health enthusiasts but for everybody. Plus, they stay fresh for long so you don’t have to worry about these getting spoilt!
This new age, healthy food is going to become an instant hit with all the wedding guests. Flavoured makhanas give you the feeling of eating a bag of chips but they're super-healthy! From cheese to salt and pepper and garlic to mint, you will never fall short of options when it comes to the delicious makhanas. Brownie points for the health benefits.
Think local and seasonal. How about wrapping mangoes and oranges in colourful papers, tying them with cute ribbons and giving them away as favours to your wedding guests? Did you know that pickled fruits are also a buzz these days?
POPxo Recommends: Get any local fruit vendor to pack the fruits in a fun way.
Make a hamper of the yummiest granola bars for all the fitness enthusiasts on your guest list. They are going to love you for putting in so much thought and think of you every time they munch on one!
A dash of caffeine can give anyone a much-needed dose of energy. With these caffeine-infused products there are rare chances that you will go wrong:
With everyone talking about it (mind you, not just the health freaks!), green tea makes the perfect wedding favour, especially if you throw in a good amount of creativity in its packing. For that matter, you can try different assorted flavours matching the different tastes of your guests.
Choose a custom roasted product that is locally sourced, tastes great and stays fresh for months! You can also get a cute note along with the names of you and your partner added along with each pack.
Though green tea and coffee are great options, nothing on earth can match a cup of cutting chai, right? Ask the tea lovers and they will agree. Every time your guests take the first sip of their morning tea, they are going to remember you and your wedding.
A desi Indian wedding deserves a desi wedding favour. The olive oil, imported chocolates and exotic teas are great but there are few things that will make your guests happy as these super-Indian favours:
Paan is readily available everywhere no matter where you are in India. But for a more sophisticated version, go for dried paan. With an exotic packing and an unforgettable taste, these will become a wedding favour to remember forever.
Pickles are not basic, at least not when made from exotic ingredients and packed fancily. Cucumbers, onions and tomatoes are great vegetarian options. For the non-vegetarians, prawn and mutton pickles make delicious alternatives.
This can be a pretty offbeat idea but will be absolutely loved by the guests. After all, conventional wedding favours are so basic and who wants basic? A beautifully packed container along with your wedding invite is gonna impress everybody!
Love that spicy killer sauce your naani makes every time you visit her? Your guests will love it too! Pack the chutneys and preserves in cute bottles and distribute among your wedding guests or send along with your wedding invites. Don’t worry they will stay fresh longer than your usual mithais and chocolates!
These customised packs of handmade jams will tell your guests that you actually put some effort and time in choosing the perfect wedding favour for them. There are countless options available made from natural and organic ingredients that will just hit the right spots.
From California citrus rub, cinnamon sugar, Jamaican sprinkle to pizza and pasta seasoning, assorted spices in cute mason jars are the coolest wedding favours you can give your guests. They will love these gifts that they can actually use in their everyday life. It’s all about utility after all
Anything placed in a cute mason jar looks stunning. And when it is one of these delectable products, it’s like the icing on the cake:
Loved by both kids and adults alike, popcorn is a great choice for favours, especially flavoured popcorn. It's delicious, crunchy and light! Don’t worry about these options because there’s one flavour to match every taste- cheese, garlic, caramel, mocha and herbs!
Another great healthy option for edible wedding favours that come in a jar are seeds. Try a hamper of roasted pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia and flax seeds and make a delicious combination that is equally healthy.
It’s fudge in a glass jar and it’s every bit awesome. All your guests have to do is dig in the jar with a spoon and eat away this yummilicious favour on their way back home. Yum, yum yum!
You can never go wrong with this idea of take-home dessert packed oh-so-cutely in a jar! Think dark chocolate and cocoa fudge or chocolate and vanilla fudge! This pretty and delicious dessert, when packed in a travel-friendly container, makes the perfect wedding favour for all those who mean so much to you.
What is a wedding without a decent amount of daru to it? Here are some awesome favours with a dose of alcohol in them for all those guests who just can’t get enough!
Alcohol as a wedding favour is great, and when it is mixed with chocolate it can’t get any better! Champagne gummy bears or wine candies, anyone?
Find wine bottles too cliche? How about gifting your guests an alcohol kit that not only helps them experience a new drink but also learn the art of mixing? Keep it classic by putting together all the items for a perfect margarita shot or let them discover a totally new concoction. Don’t forget to add a recipe book and an instruction booklet to help them create the perfect cocktail.
Make your D-day as special to your guests as it is to you by gifting them these delectable and edible wedding favours. We are sure that with these creative ideas you will take the art of gifting to a whole new level!
