5 Unique Wedding Favors That Your Guests Will Love

Wedding favors are all about putting your heart and soul into a gift that shows appreciation to your guests for sharing in your special day.

Making that gift a run-of-the-mill item may seem like you haven’t given much thought to it. And that’s exactly what you want to avoid.

You want something thoughtful to mark your momentous event.

Unique edible wedding favors are a wise choice—and it’s not just because they taste good.

Sweets are an integral part of wedding ceremonies around the world. 

  • Traditional ancient Rome weddings would have a wheat or barley cake broken over the bride’s head. The newlyweds would taste from the crumbs that fell as a symbol of good fortune. 
  • Arab traditional ceremonies include cutting the cake with a sword passed down through generations.
  • Other wedding cakes are not meant to be eaten at all. In Southern U.K. they’re shared among unmarried females for merry match-making.

Wedding sweets are heavily present in our conscious and unconscious minds.

Matter of fact, the first-ever wedding favors recorded by history were no other than sweets. They were a box of 5 sugared almonds that were believed to bring the five blessings. Namely, health, wealth, happiness, fertility, and longevity.

Want something not easy to forget? Delicious sweets wrapped in handsome little boxes will do.

Layla’s Delicacies present you with authentic handmade treats. What you’re about to uncover are unique wedding favors with an unconventional twist that marries the healthy, the delicious, and the presentable in our Tunisian treats.

Tunisian treats are ideal wedding favors for those who have the Mediterranean running in their veins.

Our unique wedding favors selection is made with gift-giving in mind. It’s what they've been imbued with through the passing centuries as our recipes have taken shape.

Our Mediterranean pastries are shaped by Spanish, African, Italian, and French culinary influences. This is why the distinctive yet familiar taste of our treats will appeal to various tastes.

Our artisan pastries are created with a great deal of craft and careful attention to detail.

An Assortment of Tunisian Sweets for Your Wedding Favors

1 — Baklava

Authentic Tunisian baklava treats featuring crunchy pistachio

Baklava is a great way for the bride and groom to express gratitude to their guests for joining in their big day. It’s the ultimate gift that conveys appreciation and is a staple being served at weddings across cultures.

The way we do baklava at Layla’s Delicacies is by using only hand-picked natural ingredients. We go easy on the sugar so that the natural tastes take the lead. And we're careful to wrap them into elegant presentation boxes.

In many countries around the world, you can’t really have a wedding without baklava. This mixture of syrup, nuts, and filo dough is deep-rooted in the traditions of different homelands across the continents.

In Tunisia, baklava is not only served to guests, it’s also a common gift given to newlyweds. Choosing it for your wedding favors is only a natural extension.

Our handmade Baklava Pistachio treats are not only unequivocally unique. They’re also sure to delight your wedding guests, and here’s why. Our fresh tasting baklava:  

  • Features only natural ingredients. It’s made of the finest Turkish pistachios layered with ground almonds and coated with a honeyed layer of filo dough
  • Contains a healthy balance of sugar (30%) and nuts (70%) 
  • Being steeped in history, our baklava features a host of culinary influences which makes it superbly unique

We love hearing feedback from our growing base of customers.

“Beautifully made, clearly made with love. It felt too artistic to be eaten. But I did it anyway and it’s like drops of heaven. Would recommend it to anyone.”

2 — Samsa Pistachio

Samsa Pistachio is a great option for those who want to treat their guests to authentic favors.

This triangle-shaped filo treat originated in North Africa. Its heavily guarded recipe would be shared only with a deserving special someone.

So, with our Samsa Pistachio, you’re not only sharing a piece of history with your wedding attendees, but you’re also setting them up for a memorable taste.

Shoutout to almond and hazelnut lovers, as these scrumptious nuts are the essence of the crunchy filling in our Samsa.

But it’s only a taste of things to come.

Samsa is further wrapped in thin filo sheets. It's sprinkled with orange blossom water and finished off with pistachio for a lovely colorful garnish.

“Heavenly delicious, want more and more forever.”
— Shailesh Patel, The Bronx, US

3 — Kaak Warka

Kaak Warka is a soft flavorful treat that melts in the mouth. It’s a perfect little something to help exceed your guests’ expectations.

Traditionally served at Tunisian weddings and other significant large events, it blends two powerful ingredients—almond paste and rosewater.

The combination gives the donut-shaped pastries a creamy consistency and a subtle overtone of flavor and sweetness.

Our signature rosewater is collected in the mountains a short distance from Tunis. It is craftily distilled and used in our artisan pastries, just like it was used centuries ago in Greek and Roman wedding rites.

“Try not to eat your fingers in the process! I have been eating Tunisian Kaak since I was a kid, quality factory-made and handmade. I can vouch for these absolutely exquisite and authentic Kaak from Layla’s and I’m thrilled that I no longer have to wait for the rare overseas shipments that have been getting me by all these years!”
— Fatima H., Vienna, US
