Simple and Elegant Fall Wedding Favors

May 22, 2008
As I've stated in previous articles, fall is one of my favorite times of the year. Only in fall will you see beautiful foliage, and the many other things that go along with the fall season. While most people choose the warmer spring and summer seasons for their weddings, some people still choose to have fall weddings, celebrating the fall colors and more temperate temperatures. Fall has some of the most beautiful colors, dark oranges, greens and browns.

If are planning a fall wedding, you may have everything you need from colors to foods and everything in between, but wedding favors are always another matter. Having some wonderful fall wedding favors to go along with your fall wedding theme will not only be a treat for your guests, but a celebration of Fall and of your wedding. Here are some great ideas of places to start.

The Smells of Fall

One of the great things about the fall season are are the many smells and scenes of fall. You can easily bring these smells into your wedding reception, as well as incorporate them into your wedding favors. Visit any candle shop and pick out your favorite fall scent. Mine happens to be pumpkin spice, to me, it just isn't fall without that scent. Pick up enough small candles for each guest, tie ribbons around each candle or place each one in an organza bag, and place one at each place setting. If you like, you can also buy small candle holders for each guest as well and forgo wrapping each candle individually, the choice is yours.

Another idea is to have some fall scented candles burning around the room during your wedding reception. It will be a treat for your guests, and they can take the scent home with them to remember your wedding.

Using Gourds

Another aspect of fall that makes the season stand out so much are pumpkins and other kinds of gourds. While many are great just as decorations, pumpkins can be used for both. Another great idea for an original wedding favor is to purchase miniature pumpkins and place one at each place setting so that each of your guests can decorate their homes with a little bit of fall as well.

Famous Fall Treats

A favorite treat in the fall season are candied apples, and it is also something that you can make easily in your home. Buy bags of apples and caramel, and make a party out of it. Invite some friends over to help, and be sure to bring plenty of other goodies to put on the apples, such as nuts or chocolate sauce. Then you can all make them together and decorate each one differently. Wrap them each individually and they will last for some time. Not only that, but they will be a feast for the eyes on your wedding tables as well.
