A small bottle of Maple syrup, or a small sack filled with fresh coffee beans decorated with ribbon and some candy can be considered. Here is a list of just a few eatable wedding favors you could consider. Some of these ideas may seem great but, be sure to think of the cost between a basic wedding favor and the eatable favor you are considering if budget is your reason for researching these options.
Buying in bulk is always the best way to shop. Most of us dont shop in bulk on an everyday basis but when you want to economize this is the best way to go.
