With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, we wanted to share this Love Is Sweet wedding favor inspiration to get your creativity going! While this theme is especially perfect this month, it honestly works any time of year and in any season. After all, candies and cookies and chocolate are all welcome anytime, right? ;) So break out the conversation hearts and get ready to be inspired with some seriously sweet ideas…
Love Is Sweet Wedding Favors
A theme focused on Love Is Sweet is most fitting for your reception, where you’ll have either a candy bar / dessert bar or treats in an individual favor bag at each guest’s seat. Here’s how each of these scenarios will work:
1. A Candy Buffet or Dessert Bar
For a candy buffet or dessert bar, guests can package their favors by choosing from a variety of favorite candies offered on a table. The table should be in a central part of your reception so guests do not miss it and it should be clearly labeled. To do this, you can use a sign or banner to draw attention to the table. Here’s an example of a wood sign (from ZCreateDesign):
Or a paper garland, spotted at Petite Flowers Studio:
And this sign, which looks great in your home after the big day, too! By Signs By Diane:
For a candy buffet, you will need apothecary jars or large mason jars for filling up your favorite candies. Here’s an example of a small candy buffet setup with a banner (from Wedding Home Decor):
We recommend choosing at least five varieties — and picking candies in your wedding colors will look best. (We recommend Old Time Candy as one resource.) You can get apothecary jars here, along with candy tongs (a necessity).
You’ll need cute candy bags for guests to fill with their favorite candies. Here are some adorable ones from Mavora Art and Design:
2. Individual favor bags
You can alternatively choose one sweet or candy (like a cookie, cupcake, or favorite candies) in a small bag, add a stamp or tag, and place at each guest’s seat.
Here’s an example of a love is sweet stamp we spotted at Tickled Pink Paper and Ink:
Here’s how cute it looks stamped onto a muslin favor bag! Just add a few candies and you’re all set!
You can fill candy bags with treats like cookies…
