Choosing a favor for your summer wedding can be difficult. Why? Because of rising temperatures. Chocolates, caramels, popsicles and ice cream will all melt, but there are a few that won’t. Here’s what can withstand the heat (as long as they’re properly packaged):

Rosemary-Infused Olive Oil - An Italian specialty that’s easy to make. Gather fresh rosemary, let the herbs sit out until they’re bone dry, add to empty bottles, pour olive oil in and seal with a cork.

Canned Strawberry Preserves - Say you love them “berry” much with a jar of strawberry jam.

Sunflower Seeds - If you’re having a seasonal summer bouquet, it’s only suitable to pass out salted sunflower seeds to match. Or in preparation for fall, give guests pumpkin seeds to plant and watch grow.

Saltwater Taffy - Perfect for a beach wedding, local saltwater taffy will add pops of color to your dessert display.

BBQ Sauce – Help add some grilling flavor to your guests’ backyard bites.
