Edible Wedding Favours – Inspiration

Stumped on an idea for wedding favours?  Are you looking for a favour that guests won’t just throw away or leave on the table at the end of the night?  The answer is very easy my friends… edible favours!  On their way home from your reception, guests will appreciate a little something yummy to nibble on.  Maybe you will want to personalize readymade snacks from your favourite local store or for a homemade touch, give guests seasonal jams or freshly baked goods.  Here are our top picks for our favourite edible favours.

I’ve got two words for you…. Superior Bakery!  Trust me, I would most definitely not leave this favour on the table at the end of the night.

Homemade Mini Pies
Making these delicious favours might be a big task, but totally worth the effort.  Leave one at each place setting or have a pie bar so guests can take home their favourite flavour of pie in their very own personalized box.
