Wondering what to give as favors at your wedding? Go with edible wedding favors and thank me later! The thing is, trinkets and things that aren’t useful to guests don’t end up lasting.

If you choose a delicious treat as your favor, guests will enjoy them and won’t leave any behind.
Whether you give tasty bags of candy or homemade cookies, donuts, or cupcakes, this list will provide you with the best edible wedding favor ideas 2023 has to offer. We have the unique favor trends that guests won’t stop talking about so yours are memorable — and most enjoyed.
Let’s get started!
Edible Wedding Favor Ideas + Trends
Before we get started, here’s a quick word of advice on edible wedding favors that won’t melt, since you may be dealing with hot summer heat and chocolate, not the best combination.
Edible Wedding Favors That Won’t Melt
Most of the wedding favors on this list, given they’re not sitting in the blazing sun and hot humidity, are edible options that won’t melt. However, the chocolate finds below are best kept indoors, as outside they’ll become sticky, ooey, gooey messes. ;) Keep all chocolate favors indoors until it’s time to place them on a table for guests. Or if your wedding is completely indoors, you don’t need to worry about your wedding favors melting at all.
Okay, on to the list!
