Coffee is one of the most widely consumed products in the world. For many countries it's the major export. For your wedding you can import some coffee and export happiness when you give coffee wedding favors to your guests.
As with wines, that leaves open a whole array of options, including some that are wholly unexpected.
Check out some coffee cup candle wedding favors! These clever little items resemble miniature coffee cups, filled with your favorite dark or light brew. But, in fact, they're tiny candle holders and candles that will light up your guests' eyes.
Don't overlook the tiny coffee pot that looks just like the one grandmother used to use. These silver wedding favors make for a delightful decorative item that will be remembered long after your big day. Many come in the form of placecard holders that serve a dual purpose: letting the guests know where to sit, and gracing their own tables long afterward.
Real coffee cups are an option, and one that will bring delight to all your guests. Demitasse cups provide the best choice here. Their small size makes them the perfect wedding favor, yet they provide a useful role long after the wedding is over. Delicate porcelain designs guarantee they'll grace your guests' kitchens when you come to visit after your honeymoon vacation.
Spoons and measuring cups make for an equally wonderful coffee wedding favor. At first thought, that might bring to mind the mundane, the merely practical. Au contraire! These silver or brass gifts are lovely and will be cherished as a keepsake to hand down for generations.
Glass cones that contain coffee, candies or silk flowers make for another wonderful wedding favor. They can be etched with a logo, or embossed with the names of the bride and groom. They will be proudly displayed on the mantles of your guests where they'll never forget your special day.
Of course, why not give coffee itself? That opens up a whole new vista of choices.
Coffee comes in small packets that contain a blend you can devise yourself. Beans or grounds, the special coffee they contain will be a huge temptation, since guests will want to sample some right away. Just as with the coffee exchanges around the world, you'll find your guests swapping packets as they swap stories about how they met you.
You can combine themes. A fall wedding introduces the colors of leaves. Decorate your coffee wedding favors with the designs of the season and send them home with a harvest of good feelings. Decorate the packets with a snowflake to go with your winter wedding. Emboss flowers on the package that remind your guests of your spring wedding day. Display the sun and palm tree that you'll soon see on your summer honeymoon.
No matter which coffee wedding favors tingle your senses, you can't go wrong. Everyone loves coffee and you'll be more popular than Starbucks.
