4 Local Wedding Favour Ideas

Send your guests home with a potted succulent, a mini bag of cotton candy or some macarons.


Thank your guests for taking the time to come out and celebrate your big day with you by sending them off with a lovely wedding favour at the end of the night. Here are four ideas for wedding favours you can get in Calgary.

Cotton candy bags from The Sugar Cube

End the night on a sweet note by giving your guests a mini bag of cotton candy on a stick from The Sugar Cube. The local candy company makes the fluffy treat themselves in flavours like watermelon, grape, blue raspberry, butter rum, strawberry, pina colada and lemon. Choose one flavour for your whole order, or opt for at least 20 bags of a few different flavours.

Macarons from Ollia

Add a French touch to your wedding favours with delicate macarons from Ollia Macarons & Tea in Mount Royal Village. Ollia offers mini clear bags that can fit up to three macarons or small clear boxes that can fit up to two macarons. The shop’s sweet and savoury flavours can vary depending on the time of year, but can include cotton candy, earl grey, pistachio, rose, salted caramel and more.

Mini pies from Pie Junkie

What could be sweeter than finding an individual, mini pie beside your place setting when you sit down for dinner at a wedding reception. These mini pies from Pie Junkie can pull double duty since guests can have them as a late night snack at the wedding or save them for home. Pie Junkie offers a few different options that would be perfect as wedding favours, such as single serving hand pies, single serving galettes and mini hand pies that can be gobbled up in three bites. Spring and summer flavours include sour cherry, strawberry rhubarb and banana cream, while fall and winter flavours include wild blueberry, maple pecan and apple with salted caramel.

Potted succulents from Plant

Attention: Succulents! #plantsforthepeople #succulents #allthecolours

A post shared by Plant (@plantshopyyc) on

Add a rustic, earthy touch to your wedding with a little potted succulent for each guest. Plant in Inglewood receives new batches of succulents regularly, so you’ll have tons of plant and potting options to choose from there. Stick a place card in the pot and this favour can also act as a place setting at the wedding dinner tables.
