When it comes to the end of the wedding, you're faced with the decision of whether or not the wedding favor is worth even picking up to take home. Let's face it: Mints and almonds just don't make the cut anymore. With all the creative and tasty ideas available today, the bar has been raised for increasingly unique favors.
It's safe to say that with me as the bride, my guests will assume they should take home something edible, but what, exactly? So far, the best favors I've come across are miniature milk and cookies, but that can add up quickly.

Brides can basically customize anything they want these days. For example, Jones Soda allows for a personalized label to use as favors. Packaging options are no longer restricted to the cellophane bags with a pretty bow.
I do feel, however, that favors should be a reflection of the couple. So what do Jon and I enjoy? The only common item we came up with are Wilbur Buds. Wilbur Chocolate, located in Lititz, Penn., is a treasure that has been around since 1865. With a shape similar to the Hershey's Kiss, these buds are as rich and smooth as chocolate should be. We've also been juggling the thought of candy apples. The downfall of these options is that each would have to survive a three- to four-hour car ride in October, which at the same time last year was 85 degrees. It honestly makes me a little nervous.
I would love to hear your thoughts, ideas and suggestions. What did you send your guests off with? Tell me in the comments section.
