One of our favorite parts of Valentine’s Day is the abundance of those heart-shaped boxes filled with delicious chocolates. Whether you’re the type who examines the map inside the box and picks out your favorite fillings or just dives right in, chocolate truffles are a decadent treat. So why not include these Valentine’s Day favorites in your wedding celebration? Instead of setting up a traditional candy buffet, provide an all-chocolate-truffle spread for your guests. Place the chocolates on trays and plates of varying shapes, sizes, and heights, and identify the treats with little signs. Offer a wide variety of favorites – from classic chocolate-covered caramels to more adventurous flavors like Mexican chili chocolate. You can also provide heart-shaped boxes for your guests to fill with the sweets – for a real nod to Valentine’s Day. For more chocolate favor ideas, check out our photo gallery.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! You can’t help but choose favors that correspond with colder weather and the holiday season. Give your guests a shawl to keep warm, a sweet treat like hot cocoa, matches to light their fireplace or even a miniature Christmas tree to plant in their backyard. For more inspiration, check out our winter wedding favors photo gallery.

You can’t help but “fall in love” with our fall favor inspiration. Edible favors are the most popular among guests these days, so give them something sweet like s’mores kits, mini pies and caramel apples. Fall isn’t complete without pumpkins. Another idea is to let your guests pick out a mini pumpkin from your own patch. For more inspiration, check out our favorite fall wedding favors gallery.

With so many choices, it’s hard to make sure you have all the essentials on your registry checklist, but don’t forget to add some fun items too. If you have a sweet tooth like I do, you will want to add Cuisinart’s soft serve ice cream machine that automatically swirls the ice cream with any of your favorite mix-ins. Think: M&M’s, Reese’s peanut butter cups and Oreos. Or maybe Breville’s pie maker that can make up to four individual-sized pies or tarts with any of your favorite fillings. Think: strawberries, blueberries and apples. For more items to add to your registry–check out our registry checklist.
Last week, we spent a day scouring the aisles of the Fancy Food Show, searching for the best edible favor (and welcome basket addition) ideas we could get our hands (and taste buds!) on. While we already discussed the artisan caramel trend, there were many other sweet wedding favor ideas that we’d thought you’d like to know about. Check out some of our favorites:
Better Together Bake Shop brownies
Could these brownies have a more wedding-appropriate name? Lots of flavors to choose from (how amazing would pumpkin brownies be for a fall wedding?), and they’ll create custom labels for special orders.
