Many couples are torn on whether to spend the money for wedding favours at their wedding. Your guests love you, but do they really want a silver picture frame with your initials and wedding date on it? Probably only your grandparents and parents would really get excited about that (and you can get them one as a post-wedding gift).
One thing is for sure: Edible favours are popular with guests. If you give them something delicious to munch on, chances are, it won’t go to waste.
Edible wedding favours also are on-trend right now because couples can get a lot of value at a relatively low cost—unless your chosen treats are mini crème brulées catered by a top chef, of course! If you’re a DIY bride and on a super-tight budget, you can even bake favours yourself, or get your wedding party to pitch in in the kitchen.
What’s more, the little nibbles are easy to personalise (with your wedding colours, date or theme), if you want to.
Here are a few top U.K. bakers to inspire your own "good-night" goodies:
Baroness Bakery crafts edible works of art with their hand-iced cookies. Whether your wedding has a rustic-outdoor or a vintage theme, they can whip up cookies shaped like everything from whimsical butterflies to sweet 1950s wedding dresses.
We can get behind a bakery that supports National Doughnut Week every year (with proceeds going to The Children’s Trust)! Dunn’s Bakery opened up shop in 1820 and has been crafting mouth-watering treats ever since, including their Fancy Doughnuts with innovative toppings like caramel and custard, iced sprinkle rings and chocolate chips. Why didn’t we think of that?
Pop it like it’s hot
From lolly pops to cake pops to push pops (we’re getting hungry writing this post), Gardner’s Bakery knows how to make your wedding favours POP in all sorts of scrumptious flavours.
Tempting Cake tempts brides and grooms with their precious attention to detail on their beautiful cupcakes. They can craft literally anything under the sun. We especially love their summer garden-party themes, complete with colourful iced fondant adorned with small sugar flowers, leaves and even ladybugs and bees!
