With summer now upon us, those of you who are getting married in the fall will be turning your attentions to your wedding favors. Fall is a lovely time of year for a wedding and one which can offer much inspiration not only for wedding favors but for many other details of your wedding too.
If you are looking for some perfect fall wedding favors then here are a few ideas to help inspire you.
Edibles: I have to include the ever popular cookies here! Choose leaf shapes, pumpkins and other seasonal symbols. Also make your cookies in interesting ‘seasonal’ flavors like ginger, cinnamon and honey.
Choose some leaf shaped chocolates and /or candies which could be presented in a pretty box with a leaf shaped tag.
Toffee apples are also synonymous with fall and very easy to create yourself at home. Simply wrap them with some clear cellophane and attach your thank you tag with ribbon. Or make some bonfire toffee or mini parkin cakes.
Throughout the wedding favor stores you will find leaf shaped bottles of maple syrup, bottles of cider punch and pumpkin shaped brownie pops.
Candles: Aside from leaf shaped candles, look for votive or pillar candles with skeleton leaves wrapped around or embedded in them. Choose candles with seasonal scents to create a fall atmosphere. Present them in coordinating voile bags.
Leaf Shaped Items: The favor stores are full of fall inspired favors most of which feature leaves as the mainstay of the design. Choose from items such as bottle stoppers, bookmarks and coasters. All of these will usually come with coordinating packaging.
DIY: Aside from making your own cookies, you could make other fall inspired wedding favors such as mini recipe books featuring some seasonal favorites like pumpkin soup, blackberry pie and spiced apple sauce. Alternatively write out recipes on single sheets of parchment style paper and roll them up like scrolls. Choose several different recipes and make sure couples each receive a different recipe.
If you are the poetic type then why not write a fall inspired love poem and present it in much the same way as the recipes – scroll fashion.
Take some photographs of the changing colors of the trees and have them made into fridge magnets. One idea is to spell out the words ‘Thank You’ with fallen leaves and take your photograph, alternatively use a little creative photo editing to add the words to your photograph before having them made into magnets. You can have these made through printers and online sites or buy the magnet kits and put them together yourself.
Give your guests some seeds for seasonal plants or flowers. These look lovely presented in small tins or inside pretty paper packets which you can easily make yourself. Another idea is seasonal flower bulbs which you could give inside a nice box along with the growing instructions.
Fall is a visually stunning season which is full of vibrant colors as summer ends and winter looms near. Reflect all the colors of fall in your wedding favors to ensure the beauty of the season is not lost on your guests.
