In the heat of summer not everyone wants to have a ton of sugar for a favor. Below you will find some fresh fruit wedding favor ideas that will give your family and friends a memorable gift with a healthy touch.
Bags of fruit
You can have white small bags or boxes personalized with your wedding date, and names on them. Then you can fill each of them with fresh fruit like strawberries, or grapes which will keep well in warm weather. The bags will look great laid out on the table and arranged neatly for your guests to take one. Or you can have each seat have a party favor in front of it.
Jars of fruit
Small antique jars with labels glued to them, and filled with fresh fruit will look really nice. You can use fruit that keeps well but also matches the color of your wedding theme if possible. For example if you are going with a blue theme, why not add blueberries to a jar. This will help to make the table look great and really stand out.
Fruit candles really make for a great wedding favor. It stands out, and you can have them personalized to your preference. You can also wrap the candles to add a little special touch of decoration to it. Place them on the tables for each of your guests and it will truly be a great addition. They can be fruit shaped candles, or just candles that smell like fruit.
Fruit basket centerpieces
A centerpiece made completely out of fruit, will really look great on each table. Just make sure that the fruit you choose matches with your theme. For example one bride had yellow and cream as their wedding colors. So on each table they had clear bowls filled with lemons and flowers stuffed in the middle. It makes for a great looking centerpiece. You can personally make one for each table yourself and this will help you to save money. You can also use baskets for the centerpieces, or a vase, which will also look nice. Each piece of fruit can be personally wrapped in a personalized bag. Then as each of your guests leave they can take a piece of fruit out of your centerpiece.
Fruit Jam Party Favors
Jam actually makes great party favors. If you get fruit filled jams, that are smaller than the normal size, and change the label it will look great. You can also wrap ribbon around the jars and place them on the table for your guests.
