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!

Hello, hello! Today we’re talking about wedding favors: have you selected what you’ll offer to guests? A wedding favor is an excellent way to say thank you and show guests your appreciation. A wedding favor is not necessarily extravagant; it is meant to be a small token of your appreciation and a take-home gift for guests. I (Emma here!) think the best wedding favors are those that fall into two categories: edible or functional. An edible favor, like a take-home bag of candy from a candy buffet, is enjoyed on the ride home or the next day. A functional favor, like soap wedding favors (which we’ll discuss today), is enjoyed at home until it’s gone. Today, we’re focusing on functional wedding favors, using soap wedding favors as one such suggestion. We’ll also be showcasing an organic line of fabulous soaps, body scrubs, and more from the fabulous team of JenSan. Read on to be inspired…
