A wedding favor is a small gift given to wedding guests as a token of appreciation from the newlyweds. Guests at your wedding have traveled from near and far to share your special day and an important moment in your history as a couple. Thank them for their presence and well wishes at your party with a meaningful keepsake they are sure to love. With so many options out there, it can be a challenge to narrow down the perfect goody to take home, so we’ve curated a list of seasonal favorites that will reflect your wedding day and your guests will enjoy!
Sparkling apple cider is a fun fall wedding favor for those young and old alike, because they offer the fizz and sparkle of champagne without the alcohol. This drink is also the perfect way to show your fancy side without excluding your guests who may not drink. Personalized bottle labels like this one from Etsy add a memorable and witty touch.
If you don’t want to give out bottles of apple cider, consider cute sachet bags filled with mulling spices. Guests can use this to make homemade cider, mulled wine, or even leave in their car as an autumn car-freshener! With multiple uses to suit each guest, mulling spices are unique and affordable for a fall themed wedding.
Maple syrup presented in charming leaf-shaped glass bottles are one of the trendiest options for fall wedding favors.
