Reader Jackie had a question about food favors that aren’t necesarily the standard chocolates or sweets.
My question now has to do with wedding favors. My fiance and I are big foodies and would like to incorporate something with food that is reasonably priced. We were going to do chocolates but now we are thinking that we don’t eat sweets that much and it may not represent us well. We like these salts from Pear and Peony but we are hoping to get a couple other ideas to compare it to. Do you have anything in mind?
One idea that I thought could be clever is making mini recipe books with your favorite recipes to give everyone. That way you’re including your love of food and passing along to your friends and family for them to love as well! I imagine them looking sort of like this:
Does anyone else have any other ideas?
