Hudson Valley Weddings – 7 Amazing Fall Wedding Favor Ideas

Hudson Valley Weddings – 7 Amazing Fall Wedding Favor Ideas

The changing seasons add another layer to planning weddings and they truly make weddings a bit more exciting. The colder air and the colorful fall nature can truly inspire you with your fall wedding décor and themes. Today, we wanted to look at some amazing fall wedding favor ideas and have gathered a list of seven of our favorite ideas for you to use as inspiration.

1. Pumpkin Jam

First, you can’t plan your fall wedding without adding a small pumpkin twist. If you don’t want to add pumpkin decorations or foods to your big day, then a pumpkin wedding favor can do the trick.

One of our favorite fall ideas is to provide your guests with a jar of pumpkin jam. You can either go with your own, handmade jam or you can purchase it from one of the local Hudson Valley farms. You can add a personal touch by creating your own labels for the jars.

2. Seasonal Teas or Coffee

Fall is also the season of cold air and there is no a better way to keep warm than with a cup of tea or coffee. Therefore, you can provide your guests with a great favor by giving small pouches of seasonal teas or coffee beans. For instance, flavors such as cinnamon, pumpkin and apple are perfect for the occasion.
 3. Handcrafted Apple Cider

Naturally, you can also go with another drink favor gift and use the season’s harvest to create amazing drinks. Apple cider isn’t that difficult to make and you can truly surprise your guests by bottling your own handcrafted cider as a gift.
Of course, if you aren’t ready to start brewing yourself, you can find Hudson Valley farms that can do it for you. Again, just like with the jam, you can then just add personalized labels to your drinks.

4. Handmade fire starters

Keeping warm is crucial during the season and DIY fire starters are a beautiful wedding favor idea. You could use pinecones or wooden branches for crafting a small bag of handmade fire starters. All you need to do is to coat your pinecones or branches with hot white beeswax. This guarantees the pinecone will light up easily. 
5. Scarves or Wraps to Keep Warm

If your Hudson Valley wedding will be an intimate and a relatively small occasion, you could surprise your guests with lovely woolly scarves or soft pashminas. You can either make the scarves yourself or purchase them on sale before the summer. If you purchase the scarves, you can add a small personal touch by adding the wedding date to the scarves.

6. Toffee coated apples

As apples are one of the best produce of the fall season, you can use them for your wedding favors. Toffee coated apples are a simple and affordable wedding favor that will generally be something everyone loves. You can also make them well before the big day.
 7. Scented candles

Finally, we love the idea of giving your guests scented candles as a wedding favor. You should pick scents that are associated with the season. For example, cinnamon and pumpkin scented candles are a perfect idea.
