Why You Should Give an Edible Favor

At Your Wedding, Give an Edible Favor

Editor's note: The following is a guest post written by Colin Cowie, wedding planner and lifestyle guru. This week Colin suggests a favor that's edible.

I've always been a big believer that the money you spend on your wedding should go towards making the best experience possible for you and your guests. Spend your money on upgrading the chicken stuffed-a-la-something to your favorite chicken dish or offer a premium bar or get that DJ you've always loved.

And, if there's money left over, don't forget the party favor. Not the terrible tchotchke you've been given that went right in the trash. Instead, make it edible. I love the idea of ending the night with a bag of homemade cookies for your guests.


Getting married amongst olive groves? Give your guests bottles of olive oil and red wine vinegar. Thinking about something timely? How about a December 31 wedding? Bagels with some delicious cream cheese will soothe the hangover.
