With artisan and homemade foods at the height of popularity, many foodie brides and grooms opt to inject this culinary craze into their wedding day by showering guests with fabulous edible favours. We’ve put together a mix of both sweet and savoury edible autumn wedding favours your guests will love. Follow our easy tutorial for a DIY project that will keep both your guests’ tummies and your bank account full.
You don’t have to be Jamie Oliver to wow your friends with delicious treats. Think about the theme of your wedding and decide which favours best reflect it. We’ll get you started with five of our favourites.
Rustic Salsa Pots
¡Viva la Mexico! If you and Mr Right love a good samba beat and luxe Latin nights, serve up fresh homemade salsa pots for a favour your guests will love. Don your pinny and head to the kitchen armed with a classic Mexican salsa recipe. For authentic vibrancy of colour and to echo natural autumnal hues, opt for ripe organic tomatoes and chillies. If you don’t fancy whipping up your own salsa, repackage your favourite shop-bought salsa; we won’t tell!
Twee clipseal jars filled with homemade spicy salsa, wrapped in twine & topped with your & your love’s initials make for a wedding favour that’s muy caliente!

Relaxing Cup of Tea
After they’ve boogied all night on the dancefloor, your guests might very well need a caffeinated pick-me-up the following morning. Send them home with a sachet of loose leaf tea and instructions to rest their weary feet and indulge in a relaxing cuppa. Of course, English Breakfast is the nation’s favourite, but there’s no reason to stick with tradition! Seal the sachet with a bow and tuck in a gratitude card for a sweet, British treat.

We admit, there’s nothing artisan or homemade about our next autumn wedding favour suggestion, but we don’t think you’ll hold it against us–who doesn’t love an indulgent doughnut every now and then?! This is one of those favours your guests will probably tuck into on the drive home and for those imbibing (& not driving afterwards!) the sugary carbs will help to absorb some of that alcohol!

Toffee Coated Popcorn
Popcorn’s not just for the cinema! Invite your guests to indulge with a handful of toffee coated popcorn compliments of you and your new spouse. They’ll feel like a kid when they lift the lid on the little jewellery box and discover the goods hidden inside. Artisan popcorn is gaining popularity amongst foodies, so feel free to swap the toffee for more exotically flavoured options.
Package a handful of gourmet popcorn inside a pretty jewellery box for an instant foodie favour.
Cut the cellophane bag to the size of the woven basket and tuck into the basket.

Rotund pumpkins with their short stumpy stalks are quintessentially autumnal. If you don’t have time to whip up a favour from scratch, simply purchase a big bag of ready-to-eat pumpkin seeds. Your guests will appreciate the seasonality of the favour and you’ll appreciate the ease of putting it together!
