Delight your guests with delicious sweet treats to eat on your sweetest day, your wedding day. Small desserts make perfect pairings with wedding receptions featuring morning brunches to late afternoon tea buffets. Treats are the perfect sweet reminder to giveaway in your favor bags or please a dancing crowd at your reception. Read on for delicious ideas for wedding treats to eat.

Small Delights

Good things come in small packages, give all of your guests a dainty bagful of delectable delights to take home as favors. Fill colorful gift bags with special-ordered personalized candy M&Ms featuring your names and a photo, wrap it up with a bow in the colors of your wedding. Give gift boxes with a decorative recipe card attached and filled to the brim with family favorites such as fudge, chocolate truffles, peanut brittle, peppermint patties, caramel popcorn or chocolate-covered pretzels. Have wedding cake favor boxes available for guests to take home a slice of the good life.

Tis the Season

Holidays are extra special when there is a wedding involved and so are the treats. For a Valentine’s Day wedding offer your guests favor bags filled with kisses, the Hershey’s kind or hand out heart-shaped mini boxes of decadent chocolates. Easter wedding treat ideas include decorated mini Easter baskets holding an assortment of popular sweets such as chocolate bunnies and plastic eggs filled with flavorful jelly beans. Give out trick-or-treat bags at a Halloween wedding and fill them up with delicious spooky favorites such as deep-fried candy corn or frosted Jack-o-Lantern sugar cookies. Warm every one’s heart at a winter wedding with cute ceramic mugs featuring the mugs of the newly married couple and stuff them with packets of instant gourmet hot chocolate and striped candy canes for stirrers. Give your guess mini stockings filled with almond biscotti and chocolate-dipped coconut macaroons.

Au Natural

Go au natural at your nuptials, showcase edible arrangements as centerpieces on tables at your wedding reception in lieu of traditional flowers. Edible arrangements resemble floral bouquets created from fruits such as strawberries, pineapples, honeydews, cantaloupes and grapes. Offer fruits that inspire love such as passion fruit or white chocolate-dipped strawberries. Serve up slices of fresh watermelon at a summer ceremony or roasted chestnuts at a winter wedding. Caramel apples make great favors for a fall wedding. Have a green thumb? If so consider sending everyone home with large bags brimming with your favorite homegrown organic fruits or local honey, a sign of health and prosperity.

Candy Bar

Bring out the kid in your wedding guest by offering an elaborate candy bar filled with an endless array of delicious retro and modern candy favorites. Ask everyone in your wedding party what their favorite candy was when they were a child and fill small tubs with the chosen treats alongside a placard identifying the candy-lover source. Give guest clear cellophane gift bags to fill to their heart’s content. Have an ultimate movie theater theme candy bar and offer popcorn counter choices such as Junior mints, Mike and Ikes, Milk Duds, Whoppers, Skittles, Starburst, Lemonheads, Twizzlers, Reeses Pieces, Jordan almonds, Goobers and Raisinets. Be sure to buy in bulk.
