Wedding Aces Bridal Buds

Finding a wedding favor that feels personal isn’t always the easiest task. To start brainstorming, think about your hometown or the location of your wedding. Are there any edible local specialties that your guests might enjoy? Presto! That’s a favor idea!

While checking out the Fancy Food Show this week, we saw food companies from nearly every state – and lots of really neat favor ideas! Check out a few of our favorites:

If you’re from New Jersey…First Field ketchup

Okay, so ketchup might not be a conventional wedding favor – but it sure is useful and something your guests can keep for a while. If you’re from the Garden State, you’re probably aware that New Jersey is known for its tomatoes, so if you’re a proud Jersey Girl (or guy), a small jar of locally-made ketchup from First Field could be a fun (and yes, quirky!) favor idea.

This week, we visited the Fancy Food Show at the Washington Convention Center to search for the coolest new edible wedding favor ideas. Of course, we saw lots of chocolate – the most obvious choice for a sweet favor. But we were delighted to see many other options – in particular, artisan caramels. It’s a bit of a foodie-friendly twist on the candy favor, and there were lots of flavor and packaging options to choose from. Check out four of our favorite caramel companies. Even though these sweets are sold all over the country, for a local twist, hand out caramels that are made near your hometown or wedding location – they also make great welcome-basket additions!
