Behind Spring, Fall is the second most popular season for weddings. The changing foliage and cooler temperatures are just a couple of reasons for the popularity of Autumn nuptials. Here’s a list of some unique, fall-related wedding favors that your guests will love.
1. Dipped Apples
Bring your guests a taste of fall with some delicious dipped apples! You can give chocolate, caramel, or candy apples, or a variety for guests to choose from. Decorate them with candy, coconut, nuts, or sugar in your wedding colors. Then wrap the apples in cellophane and tie off with pretty ribbon or twine. These are a tasty and easy DIY wedding favor that will leave a lasting impression on your guests.
2. Fall-Scented Favors
Fill your guests’ homes with the warm, inviting scents of fall long after your wedding day is over. Buy or make candles, soaps, or room spray in favorite fall scents like cinnamon, pumpkin, apple, or pear. You guests will appreciate a favor they can actually use!
3. Chocolate Coins
Everyone loves chocolate, especially after a long night of dancing! Have personalized chocolate coins made with your names or wedding images on the foils, then bundle them in burlap pouches, pumpkin-shaped boxes, or other autumnal favor packaging.
4. Maple Syrup
Remind your guests that love is sweet with tiny bottles of maple syrup! These oh-so-cute favors will get everyone into the fall spirit. Tie on a ribbon in your wedding color to add a touch of style.
5. Apple Butter
Apple butter is a country fall favorite. Treat guests to this tasty treat with small jars at their table settings. Cover the lids with cute fabric that fits the colors and theme of your wedding day to personalize them.
Jam is a delicious favor your guests will enjoy long after the big day. Make or buy jam from fresh autumn fruits like quince, figs, or huckleberries. Don’t forget to attach thank-you notes to the jars to show appreciation for your guests.
As the weather grows cool, guests will love putting fresh honey in their warm tea or cider or on toast. Give guests small jars of this sweet treat along with dippers and personalized labels so they remember your special day.
8. Pine Cone Fire Starters
Help guests get snuggly by giving them a DIY fire starter. Simply coat pine cones in soy wax (in your wedding colors of course!) for a fast, easy, and useful favor. You can even add autumn scents to the wax to give your guests a cozy fireplace experience.
9. Birdseed Ornaments
Create your own birdseed ornaments in the shape of a leaf, pumpkin, or heart. Guests can hang them on trees outside to attract birds in the fall and winter. This is a perfect favor for a rustic, nature-themed fall
10. Apple Cider
Mini jugs of apple cider are a great send-off for your guests. They are a favorite fall treat for all ages. Create custom labels for the jugs to add a personal touch!
