There are many reasons why couples give out wedding favors.

How about an edible wedding favor making gift both tasty and meaningful?
You can also personalize it in a way that represents you, your fiancé and the amazing location you have chosen for your destination wedding.
Your family and friends will travel from near and far to celebrate together one of the best days of your life. From colored soaps to customized bottle opener with particular shapes or special inscriptions, there is a wide selection of creative and practical wedding favors to express your appreciation and gratitude.
If you hold your wedding in Italy, how about giving locally sourced goods that can’t be found anywhere else?
The options are endless when it comes to picking an edible wedding favor: each Italian region offers gastronomic specialties, typical wines and liqueurs rich in flavor and tradition.
Here are the best edible wedding favors that your guests will be excited to take home:
- Mini bottles to drink
To keep the celebration going after your wedding ends, give guests a mini personalized bottle with something to drink. From the craft beer to red or white wine or prosecco. We love also the idea of adding your monogram for a personalized touch.
- Tin cans with leaf tea
You can choose from a variety of flavors, such as chamomile, jasmine, mallow or your favorite tea leaves.
Add an infuser or a tea strainer suitable for your wedding style and theme.
- Olive oil or balsamic vinegar in glass bottles
Treat your guests to bottles of extra virgin olive oil or balsamic vinegar that they can use when cooking at home. You can even include a card with your favorite recipe or tips on how to use the dressing.
- Honey jars
Opt for locally produced honey, from wildflower to chestnut or acacia one. It’s literally a sweet idea for your end of the night gift. Add a colored honey dipper to complete the gift.
- Jam jars
Surprise your guests with homemade jam jars. Pick your favorite flavors or unleash your imagination choosing the perfect taste for every guest. Think about customizing the jars with touches of color and cute labels.
- Glass flask with local spirts
Choose your favorite Italian liquor and give it to your guests to enjoy at home. The classic limoncello could be the right choice for you, but the choice is wide, including grappa, meloncello, nocino and the “bitter” digestifs called amari. Add a special touch with hand-calligraphed tags.
- Cookie mix
Assemble your favorite cookie mix with local products and put it in personalized jars. Add a fun label or tag with clear instructions for friends and family on how to bake the treat at home.
Take a cue from these ideas for your wedding favors. You can customize them even more with a few simple upgrades, like fun decorations or by adding personalized labels and thank-you notes.
This way you’ll make your destination wedding truly unique and unforgettable.
These yummy gifts are an opportunity for you to share something personal about you and your future groom and they are often more appreciated than objects that will simply take up space in the guests’ luggage.
