Recipe Wedding Favors, Cards and Coasters

March 2, 2008 | editorial team

Being a giant fan of food, I absolutely love wedding favors that include recipes for guests to take home. These letterpress coasters from Bella Figura Artisan Letterpress are made of thick, sturdy paper stock and the colors and designs are gorgeous. A fun, bright pink Raspberry Margarita recipe goes perfectly with a Cinco de Mayo wedding, and the classic recipes for Pimm’s Cup and Tennessee Tea are filled with southern charm. All of Bella Figura’s letterpress wedding designs are simply stunning, and their website is full of wedding inspiration! Check them out!


At a recent Eastern Washington wedding photographed by La Vie Photography, the bride’s Grandmother’s famous carrot cake cupcakes were served with sweetly designed recipe cards honoring the much beloved family member. Adorable!


Here are two great ideas from MarthaStewart.com. From a southern wedding that served traditional shrimp and grits during dinner, guests took home a bag of grits with a recipe wrapped around the outside. For a garden wedding or post-wedding brunch, give guests a bundle of fresh herbs with a favorite recipe attached that includes the herbs in the bunch.
