Sure, maybe you don't have to give your guests favors at your wedding reception, considering that you're already inviting them to an awesome party. But if your guests have traveled an especially long distance or have otherwise gone out of their way to celebrate the start of your marriage, maybe you're looking for a way to give them a little extra "thank you." Or maybe you really want to share a small piece of your personality with your favorite people in the world. Favors are a great way to do both of those things.
It's difficult to choose favors that both showcase your personality and will be universally enjoyed by all of your wedding guests, from your elderly great-aunt to your hyperactive kindergarten-aged nephew. To address the question of how to showcase your personality, consider that people are often shaped by the places we inhabit. You probably have memories of the town where you grew up or the city where you went to college, and many of those memories probably involve food. Whether it's a Philadelphia cheesesteak, Chicago deep-dish pizza, or Texas barbecue, there are undoubtedly a few signature foods from a place you've inhabited in the past — foods that hold a special place in your heart.
And food is something that everybody enjoys! So, if you're looking for wedding favors that are both personal and crowd-pleasing, why not share some of your favorite regional snacks from a place that's close to your heart? We've compiled a list of great snacks from around the country, all of which can be easily packaged as wedding favors. Thank your guests by letting them take home a little piece of your home!
