Okay, now that I have your attention, have you thought about giving cookie wedding favors? They’re incredibly popular for good reason: guests love them, they taste amazing, you won’t have any leftovers, and couples love them because they’re cost-effective and easy to put together yourself.

Now that’s a whole lot of wins, I say!

Beau-coup Wedding Favors

Emma here and if there is one thing I love taking home from weddings it is… sweets! From donuts to bite-sized donut holes, macarons, stroopwafels, brownies, and cookies, taking home sweet wedding favors is always a good idea.

And they’re always well-received by guests as wedding favors that aren’t lame. :)

But there’s something extra-special about cookie favors. Cookies are one of those late-night snacks that you just can’t resist; they go together with milk, coffee, or hot cocoa — or honestly, all by themselves. :)

One thing that couples overlook about cookies as party favors are showing off your own baking skills — if you’d like to share a family recipe! — or picking out your favorite cookie and sharing it with your family and friends. I mean, if you stumble upon the world’s greatest chocolate chip cookie, is it really fair to keep it all to yourself?!

In addition, it doesn’t have to stop at only chocolate chip cookies. You can give sugar cookies, peanut butter cookies, oatmeal raisin, shortbread, white chocolate macadamia… there is a long list of possibilities. Make them yourself (here’s my favorite recipe for ooey-gooey-chocolate-chip-cookies) or outsource the baking to a local bakery or even online. We’re sharing some resources for where to buy bulk cookies for wedding favors at the end of this post.

First, let’s talk about how to turn any cookie into a wedding-worthy favor for guests to take home. Hint: it’s very easy.

But Emma, can’t I just put cookies on a tray? No, for a few reasons. Guests will think they’re more of a dessert bar or treat stand. They also won’t feel so inclined to take one (or two, depending on how many you purchase). And you really want to make them look pulled-together and planned for ahead of time.

So, what do you do? Package your delicious treats into wedding favor bags for cookies! There are a surprisingly large number of designs from which to choose from here, along with fun one-liners, color combinations, and even the ability to customize the design completely from scratch. :)

These are the CUTEST cookie favor bags for weddings we’ve seen yet. They’re also on sale for a limited time here.

Just add your cookie, then seal ’em up! Use these to add a sticker seal and that extra personalized touch. Done!
