6 Reasons to Use Macarons as Wedding Favors

Hello, brides! Have you decided on your wedding favors yet? Today we’re sharing some macaron wedding favor inspiration thanks to the folks at Le Bonbon. But first… what is a macaron? A macaron is a sweet meringue-based confection made of eggs, sugar (icing sugar and granulated sugar), ground almond or almond powder, and food coloring. Macarons have become all the rage in the wedding industry over the past few years, and we don’t see these sweet confections going anywhere soon. Read on for six reasons to use macarons as wedding favors PLUS find out where to buy ’em. Enjoy!

Reason #4: Macarons are anything but boring!

A macaron is a unique treat and, at Le BonBon, a macaron is never just a macaron. In fact, you can order custom macaron creations like donuts…

Reason #5: Easy favor-box assembly.

Need ’em boxed? It’s easy! You can purchase macarons with complementing boxes, tags, and ribbon from Le Bonbon. To protect macarons in shipping, macarons do not arrive assembled (but assembly is a breeze). Oh, and make sure you order an extra (or five), you know, for taste testing. ;)
