It’s wedding season once again, and edible giveaways and treats are all the rage. Instead of giving ceramic trinkets that eventually end up as junk, soon-to-be-married couples are opting for something more sensible and edible. After all, aside from photos, giveaways are the only thing that people will be taking home after the festivities. So, for richer or poorer, for better or worse, here are some ideas that are sure to be candy for your eyes and taste buds.
TAKE-AWAY BARS with PERSONALIZED WRAPPERS
Excellent “thank you for coming” goodies for all the wonderful friends and family who made it to your wedding. Simple, classy and very delicious.

BOX OF MINI COOKIES GIVEAWAY
Perfect for your “ninongs” and “ninangs” as an alternative to those small, round cakes that look delicious, but are impossible to eat during the drive home. Good luck with these cookies getting past the church gate.

Providing something to nibble on while guests are waiting at the reception, is also very thoughtful and necessary. Many weddings have guests suffer hunger pangs while the bride and groom take another 30-minute extension for their pictorial.
EDIBLE TOPIARY / CENTERPIECE – How sweet would it be if this magnificent topiary was the centerpiece of your table? Let the newlyweds take all the time they need. It’s their day anyway. Have another Butterscotch Square.
