We’re featuring five amazing foodie wedding favors (with a few drink-ie favors) your guests will love to receive at your wedding. Instead of a favor they’ll throw away, these foodie wedding favors will be savored and enjoyed by your friends and family. So, if you’re planning a foodie wedding, need a foodie gift idea for a host or hostess, or you’re a foodie yourself, this is the post for you! Read on to find out more about this wonderful collection of foodie favors by Dell Cove Spice Co. and see what foodie wedding favors we’ve uncovered! Enjoy!

Foodie Wedding Favors

We’ve heard of plenty of foodie wedding favors before, but these are unlike any we’ve seen. Each of these favors are not only packed, wrapped, and shipped by hand, but the spices are made by hand, too! Dell Cove Spice Co. was founded by a husband and wife team, David and Patricia Beets, who specialize in handmade popcorn seasonings, BBQ rubs, gourmet cocktail rim sugars and unique food gifts for entertaining with style. And, not only do their products look insanely delicious, but they use only the best ingredients. (You can find out more about the team here.) Now… on to the foodie wedding favors!

1. Gourmet Popcorn Kernels + Popcorn Seasonings

I (Emma here!) looooove popcorn. Many people go to the movies to watch the movie… I go for the popcorn. (If there’s a decent movie, I consider that a bonus.) I also like to make popcorn at home, but I’ve never tried gourmet old-fashioned popping corn. You can gift your wedding guests with these tasty gourmet popcorn favors in a take-home size and/or include popcorn seasoning tins for them to try at home. Plus, they’re no GMO’s added, so you can be assured it’s a quality product.

2. BBQ Spice Rubs

Next up, we have the answer to groomsmen gifts and wedding favors alike: BBQ spice rubs! I don’t know a single person who wouldn’t love a gourmet spice packet to try at dinner in their very own kitchen or at their next outdoor barbecue.

3. Spices for Dips

If you love the idea of the BBQ spice rubs or seasoning packets but prefer it in a dip form, you’re in luck! These are available, too, so guests can be the star of the next tailgate or Superbowl party.

4. Cocktail Rimming Sugars + Salts

Give guests these foodie (or, drink-ie rather) wedding favors featuring colored rimming sugars or rimming salts in a take-home tin. And, if you’re serving a signature cocktail at your wedding, you can offer guests these sugars (or salts) at the bar so they can give them a try. Rimming sugars and salts really do make drinks a little tastier (and prettier, too).

Coffee Sugars

And, since I’m such a coffee lover (this is my latest obsession), I couldn’t help but share this equally appealing idea: coffee rimming sugars! These sugars, in vanilla coffee flavor or cinnamon, can be enjoyed by guests at home or at your coffee-themed wedding.

5. Cocktail Sugar Cubes

And, last but not least, these cocktail sugar cubes are a fun and original idea. Guests take home an individually-packed heart-shaped sugar cube packed with flavor. At home, they place the sugar cube to a glass and add liquor of choice (such as vodka, for instance) for an instant, sensational beverage. Cocktail sugar cubes include a drink recipe, too.

Escort Card Seed Packets

Posted March 15, 2012 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

If you are planning a garden-themed wedding or bridal shower, you’ll love this unique escort card idea: seed packets! These escort card seed packets – which can also be used as favors – encourages guests to plant fresh vegetables, fruit, or flowers after the event. For about $1 a pack plus twine, clothespins, and a couple of trees (or a sturdy board), you can beautifully display these seed packets with guests’ names written directly on them. We recommend surrounding your space with other thematic elements like fruit-inspired centerpieces (lemons or limes are beautiful in clear hurricanes), baby’s breath bouquets, and peach favors. What fun!

How to Make DIY Seed Favors

Posted January 10, 2012 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 3 Comments

If you’re planning a spring or summer wedding, now is a perfect time to get started on those DIY wedding favors you’ve been putting off through the holidays. Today, we’re sharing an amazing article on how to make DIY seed favors, an inexpensive and eco-friendly wedding favor guests can actually use. With just a few easy-to-find items you can craft these DIY seed favors for guests to plant their first blooms of spring. Read on to find out more…

This tutorial by MADE (spotted via Pinterest) requires only a few basic supplies like soil, pots, seeds, cookie cutters, paper, and a few additional items you most likely have around the house. What we love most about this project is the ability to customize the different shapes with cookie cutters… which means personalization is endless! We’re already imagining these fun seedlings made from alphabet cookie cutters to tie into your monogram, numbers to tie into the wedding date, or various shapes which can tie into your wedding theme. And, if you’re in love with this idea but your wedding is off-season, guests can still plant your beautiful seedlings indoors to bloom all year long. Besides, flowers are way more fun to have around the house than plastic store-bought favors.

Wedding Coaster Favors + Special Offer!

Posted December 27, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

A wedding favor that offers a function for your guests means he or she will hold on to it for years. A pretty (and expensive) wedding favor looks nice on your wedding tables, but will it outlast your first few anniversaries? Probably not. Unless a wedding favor can provide a useful function for its guests, it will likely be stored away in the attic to collect dust or placed in a box because the recipient feels guilty throwing it away. Save your guests the guilt trip and opt instead for something he or she can actually use… like these wedding coaster favors! Today we’re featuring these pretty wedding coaster favors by the lovely My Little Chickadee Creations who is happy to help design a set to tie into your wedding theme perfectly. Read on to see a few of our hand-picked wedding coaster favors and find out how you can receive a special discount offer. Enjoy!

First, let’s focus on two ideas for wedding themes. If you’re planning a nautical wedding theme, you’ll need to get your hands on these pretty nautical themed wedding coaster favors:
