Your guests may leave your wedding with a full stomach, but they certainly won’t turn down a tasty treat to take home. These edible wedding favors are an easy and mostly cheap way to show your guests you appreciate their attendance - and they’ll love them just as much as you do! However, don’t settle for traditional store-bought wedding sweets and treats: make gifts for your guests from the comfort of home! Making yummy favors at home is a great way to explore your creative side and bond with your fiancé before the ceremony. Here is our list of wedding favors ideas to get you started:
Top 21 Edible Wedding Favors
1. Chocolate Anything
Everyone loves chocolate, right? Dip your favorite treats - pretzels, strawberries, dried fruit, nuts, cookies - into chocolate at home, wrap them individually, and give them to guests as take-home treats. Make it more personal by picking his and her favorite: say you like chocolate pretzels, and he likes chocolate strawberries. Include both, and label them accordingly - your guests will get to know you just a little bit more.
Wedding Favors, Bridal Shower, Birthday Gift, Handmade Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, Personalized Favors, Charcuterie Board, Dried Fruit

Be the talk of the Party and bring these perfectly sharable handmade chocolates with the perfect toppings such as Oranges, Apples, Strawberries, Oreo Cookies, Pumpkin Seeds, Pretzels and Almonds. Take the stress out of entertaining. These are the perfect appetizer for any party! You will receive the Following: 2 barks in each flavor, Milk, Dark and White Chocolate. Toppings will include the following: Pretzels, Pumpkin seeds, Almonds, Dried Oranges, Dried Strawberries, Dried Apples. Special Requests are welcome.
2. Fortune Cookies
Celebrate your good fortune by providing fortune cookies for your guests. This works especially well if your wedding cuisine is Asian-inspired. You can order personalized fortune cookies online with fortunes inside, or (even better) you could make your own! Plenty of recipes exist online, and you can print out personalized fortunes at home. Buy miniature Chinese takeout-style to-go containers from a craft store, stuff them with crinkled paper, and place the fortune cookie inside. Your guests will love this edible wedding favor.
3. Caramel Apples
For a sweet and crisp treat, put apples on sticks and dip them in homemade caramel to make caramel apples! Use different varieties of apples for unique flavor combinations.
4. Delicious Donuts
Homemade donuts in a box are unforgettable indulgences for your guests to munch on the next morning. You can find donut-making machines online or at local department stores for at-home donut-making. However, if you're feeling creative, you could also make the donuts from scratch and fry the dough yourself using household kitchen supplies, an online recipe, and the power of love. Wrap your creations in little boxes of joy and voila - wedding, breakfast goodness.
5. Oh, Fudge
Yes, fudge. Make some from scratch and give it out as favors to your guests! You can even mold the fudge into heart shapes using ice trays. Personalize tiny bottles or jars according to your wedding theme, and fill them with chocolatey, gooey goodness. Desserts are always going to be a win.
6. S’more Fun
Another homemade favor option is to create a DIY s’mores kit. Stack graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows in a box or decorated plastic wrap with a ribbon. A summer classic that everyone will love.
