Fall Wedding Favors
by Nicole Brewer
The soft pastels of spring and bright colors of summer may not work after September, but autumn weddings have a gorgeous color palette as well! Fall weddings often incorporate yellow, orange, red and brown shades, creating sophisticated bridal style, warm and inviting wedding décor and unforgettable wedding favors. Here are my favorite wedding favor ideas that embody the warm comforts of fall and can be easily customized for your celebration.
Few edible delights can put your wedding guests in the festive spirit quite like candy apples! So, why not treat them to fall’s quintessential indulgence, elegantly packaged with ribbons to match your wedding colors. Place them in metal pails for that “just-picked” effect that guests can grab as they go.
Capture the ambience of autumn with scented table candles or sets of long taper candles in cozy shades of burnt orange, mustard or sage. Label and use them as place cards for seating assignments, wrap them with twine or put them in pretty boxes.
Delights in a Jar
Fruit preserves, mini maple syrups and apple butter offer another sweet way to say, “thank you.” Package the sweet spread into mini jars and tie them with ribbon and a small hang tag for the thank you.
Pastries and pies that have been reduced to individual serving size are, for some reason, absolutely irresistible! Show off your favorite mini fall deserts in portable monogrammed bags or neat, personalized boxes for a more polished look.
You don’t have to spend a bundle on your favors to make them look special or unique. It’s all about creative packaging. Buy small, inexpensive corked bottles and fill them up with bulk chocolate.
