Apple Favors for Fall
Apples are beloved symbols of autumn. So homebaked apple wedding favors are always a hit, whether flavored with caramel or maple syrup, made into cookies, mini pies, cupcakes, or candy apples.
Apple Cider-inspired Favors
Whether you opt for homemade or ready to buy, favors infused with or incorporating apple cider are another autumn treat to consider. The choices are so creative, from apple cider mix in bottles, to lollipops, donuts, jam, organic vinegar, and jello shots.
Bottled Honey Favors
Take commercially-available bottled honey—”bear in a bottle” is one cute choice—and turn it into an elegantly packaged fall wedding favor. Just bundle each one up in a colored fabric wrap and it’s ready to give!
Mason Jars with Edible Autumn Fillings
There’s just something so heartwarming about goodies presented in mason jars. So pop in your favorite fall fillings, from nuts to popcorn, and you’ve got wedding favors your guests will love.
Maple Syrup Wedding Favors
Take advantage of the ready-to-give packaging of bottled maple syrup—ranging from leaf shapes to miniature jugs. Then turn them into giftable favors by simply adding personalized tags tied on with raffia twine or ribbon.
If we had suggested bottled maple syrup above, here we’re pitching maple syrup-infused goodies that capture the nostalgic air of fall for your favors. Think maple-flavored biscotti, pecans, cookies, and candied apples.
Caramel Apples as Favors
Bring back childhood memories with a caramel apple bar at your reception (the recipe options are amazing!). Then, have prettily wrapped candy apples ready for guests to each take one as a wedding favor.
Caramel Flavored Goodies
The sticky-sweet goodness of caramel is another well-loved autumn flavor. So why not make some old-fashioned caramel chews, caramel jam, or fancy caramel-dipped pears to give as favors?
Nutty Wedding Favors
With creative packaging ideas, even the simplest of snacks can be made special. Check out these nutty (and super easy) ideas for fall wedding favors!
Fall Nut Mixes from Sweet to Savory
One of the yummiest ways to create fancy fall-time treats is to combine basic nuts with spices, herbs, flavorings and other munchies to make nut mix autumn wedding favors.

Fresh-baked Bread as Favors
How charming are these ideas for bread wedding favors? Just bake your favorite bread (pumpkin loaves are perfect for fall), rolls, or bread sticks—or order them from your caterer or nearby bakery. Then, add simple home-style packaging.
Delightful Packs of Pretzels
With snack stations being so popular for today’s weddings, a pretzel bar is a delightfully doable choice. Since the fillings themselves are ready-made, choose your packaging style from rustic to fun!
Trail Mix Favors
Packs of trail mix are another appealing choice for autumn wedding favors. Select interesting recipes that you can offer in a trail mix bar at the reception. Then, plan the packaging, using jars, kraft bags, sinamay pouches, cello packs and personalized favor tags.
