First off think about the theme you will use. If you are using an edible favor it can like over reception presents come in shapes or colors that match various themes. Chocolate is especially good as it can be made and used in several ways. One idea is baked goods. They keep well are normally popular and can be easily made in shapes matching virtually any theme a bride can think of. Brownies and cookies are especially good choices for this. Another choice if you can find it is pure chocolate or chocolate based candies. You can find them in virtually any shape and they will be a favorite with a large portion of your guests. The same goes into choosing tea gifts try matching flavor or personalizing the teabags to match whatever them you are basing your wedding off of.
Another great idea is to have a buffet with chocolates and teas. You might not know what certain guest might want. Some might like milk chocolate better than dark chocolate or earl grey to orange black cut pekoe. So why bother worrying? Set up a buffet that guests can choose from. This way you can distribute your edible gifts more efficiently and guarantee that people will get the choice they want. It also gives the added pleasure of variety. Rather than buying kind of chocolate or tea you can make a statement providing different flavors and types.
Another great idea is to find favors that can be personalized with your initials or pictures or even a short and "sweet" message. This can elevate your edible gifts to the next level. Rather than being just desert, you give your guests at the end of a meal. You can use personalization to say thank you to your guests. Also as I said before tea bags are ridiculously easy to personalize. You can match tastes with people preference or add an image or short message on the bag itself.
Recently I came across another unique idea. Say you want to do something significant that will be more lasting than favors. A great idea is to also give a certain amount on behalf of guests to a favorite charity. You can then use your chocolate and tea favors in order to promote the charity and encourage further giving from your guests.
Edible favors are great because they have almost limitless possibilities. Use these suggestions just as starting points and use your imagination to find even more fantastic ways to use and present them.
