Sweet Guest Favour Alternatives with Yummy Cupcakes & Cakes and The Five Almonds

Are little wedding trinkets or themed wedding favours just not cutting it for you? Do you want something your guests will enjoy rather than tossing it in the garbage or junk drawer when they get home? Well I have some "sweet" alternatives for you and your guests. At my wedding I opted for something my guests could enjoy either at the wedding or take home... cookies. My maid-of-honour made an assortment of cookies and we had goodie bags for our guests to choose their selection to eat during the reception or take home with them. People love food so you can't go wrong when giving your guests a tasty treat. I have come across a couple fabulous online shops to order the perfect wedding favours from and more, it makes my mouth water just looking at all of the different options brides-to-be have...

Yummy Cupcakes & Cakes is a Sydney, Australia based shop loved and owned by Patricia. I loved reading her story about how she got started and it makes her cakes and cupcakes that much more special rather than coming from a factory pumping out hundreds of the same item. Yummy Cupcakes & Cakes makes fabulous wedding cakes, and other special event cakes but what I love most is their cupcakes! This is where you can wow your guests and give them their own tasty treat to take home and enjoy even after the wedding is over.

Yummy Cupcakes & Cakes has sooo many fabulous cupcake designs in their gallery to choose from and you can create your own perfect cupcake by contacting Yummy Cupcakes & Cakes and sharing your wedding colours, theme, ideas, and most importantly the flavours you love! You can display your cupcake favours is a variety of ways including personalized boxes making your guests feel special opening their own little gift.

If you happened to check out the flavours you will have also noticed the awesome cake flavours offered by Yummy Cupcakes & Cakes including their gourmet range... can you say flavour overload! They not only make gorgeous cupcakes but also specialize in making wedding cakes so you know they will be fabulous too! Here are some of their wedding cake designs but as with any artisan, possibilities are endless :)

If you live in Australia or are planning a destination wedding in the area you should definitely check out  Yummy Cupcakes & Cakes!

The Five Almonds (Les Cinq Amandes) is another online shop based in New York, U.S.A worth checking out when thinking about your wedding favours; these are not your grandmother's candy coated almonds... they are absolutely decadent! The Five Almonds has a long history which began even before their shop was created; reading their unique story will truly give you an appreciation for their product. If your wedding is simple and chic or glamorous and over the top, The Five Almonds will have something for your wedding and anything in between. From their world renowned sugared almonds to hand painted artisan chocolate, The Five Almonds has endless options for your wedding favours.

You can chose to purchase your tasty treats and wrap them yourself or you can choose pre-wrapped options ready to give as favours to your guests, all you need to do is personalize them with a tag!

The Five Almonds has a great shipping service to ensure your treats arrive just as pretty as when they were packaged and they even offer free ground shipping on orders $79 and above (their rate for less than $79 is totally reasonable too!)
