Brilliant leaves, crisp cool air, cozy fabrics, and warm, spicy treats—it’s all part of the appeal of autumn. If you’re having your wedding in the fall, you don’t necessarily need to have an autumn theme, but it could be nice to leave your guests with a little hint of the season. Check out our list of fall wedding favors for every wedding theme.
Apple Cider Doughnuts
Do you like going apple-picking during the fall? For some couples and families, it’s a treasured tradition that would be incomplete without the purchase of fresh, warm cider doughnuts.
Maybe you can’t offer them straight from the fryer, but you can provide your guests with a bit of that delightful experience by offering cider doughnuts in cute bags or boxes. These wedding favors are so delicious, they will likely be eaten before your guests reach home!
Hot Cocoa Packets
What could be more fall-ish than packets of delicious hot cocoa? You can enclose the packets in a simple white envelope sealed with a personalized label that includes your wedding information and a word of thanks to your guests for attending the event.
As an alternative to cocoa, you could supply your guests with chai tea mix or some other kind of delicious tea. Chai tea mix is fairly easy to DIY if you have the time. Recruit some helpers, make a large batch, and put the mix into small adorable jars with a ribbon and tag.
Maple Syrup or Maple Candy
Fall is the season when maple syrup and maple candy get an extra boost of popularity too. Treat your guests to a tiny box of maple candy, or provide small bottles of delicious maple syrup from a local orchard. If you go this route, you may want to offer a sugar-free option for guests who can’t have sweets.
Seed packets are gifts that will keep on giving. Include pumpkin or squash seeds in brown paper packets customized with your wedding logo or monogram and possibly a special message. Your guests can plant the seeds and enjoy the literal fruit of their labors next fall.
If your guests don’t have a garden or a green thumb, no worries! They can always re-gift the packet to someone who will enjoy it.
Pumpkin or Fall-Scented Candles
Who doesn’t love a nice pumpkin scent? Look for tiny candles in the shape of pumpkins to use as favors, or select another candle with a fall-ish aroma like spiced cider, autumn breeze, crisp leaves, maple sugar, wood smoke, or apple pie.
Give the gift of a peaceful night’s sleep when you give your guests tiny dream catchers as wedding favors! Usually crafted with leather, string, and feathers, these traditional Native American charms have a rustic look and are said to capture and dispel nightmares.
