When you are choosing wedding favors, you want to think ahead. Imagine your reception, and what your guests might like to receive as wedding favors. The wedding favor in question is one that can be eaten either at the reception or very soon after. I am referring to the dessert known as the cupcake. Now, some wedding planners may argue that is seems a bit redundant to give your guests a small cake when their will be a large one at the wedding. This is untrue because so much can be done with cupcake wedding favors.
Though wedding favor boxes are great reception favors ideas for candy and almonds, they can also make great containers for cupcakes. To enhance your wedding table’s detail, opt for boxes that are see-through on top so your guests can get a peek at what their favor is. The clear cutout on the box’s top flap is great for showcasing sprinkles, icing, or other wedding embellishment like a ribbon or bell.
Another way to use cupcakes as wedding favors is to place tea lights or rose-shaped candles on top. Place on decorative platters and surround the cupcakes with rose petals. Have the candles on the cupcakes lit right as your guests enter the reception hall or outdoor venue. This is an easy way to add dynamic elements to your wedding party. For other ideas on what to use on top of cupcake wedding favors try gumdrops, M&Ms, or Oreo pieces to create your own special favors.
Thinking about having a classic black and white event? Use chocolate and vanilla to formalize your cupcake wedding favors. Frost half of your cupcake favors with chocolate icing and the other half with vanilla or cream cheese frosting. This favors will be perfect for a black and white wedding, plus it gives your guests a choice between two flavors. Use chocolate sprinkles to keep the theme.
Since any box of cake mix can be converted into a batch of DIY wedding favors, feel free to experiment with red velvet, chocolate fudge, yellow, spice, or Swiss chocolate. For a spring wedding, use an array of pastel frosting to bring life to your reception tables. Some brides may even wish to have coconut used on the guests’ cupcake wedding favors. Depending on your wedding style, cupcakes can be great edible wedding favors that your guests will love.
