The iconic honey bear in a bottle has been around since the 1950s, so it is no wonder that this cute packaging design would make its way into the wedding arena as an adorably sweet wedding favor idea. Guess you could say that it was “meant to bee!” Let’s explore how the honey bear can be your inspiration as a lovely memento of your special day.
Why Give Honey as a Wedding Favor?
Who doesn’t love something sweet? Honey has many uses primarily as a sugar substitute. It can be used in summer beverages to make lemonade, iced tea, or even fruity cocktails. In the fall, honey goes great on waffles, oatmeal, or warm apple cider. With such a practical purpose, honey remains a popular option for many summer and fall brides. Convinced? Let’s move on to the ideas and inspiration.
