Local Jams & Jellies

Why not support a local business while also giving a great gift to your wedding guests? Having jams or jellies from a local Nashville company is the perfect way to share some delicious love with your friends and family. The Nashville Jam Co has homemade flavors like Apple Bourbon or Peach Brandy Jam. Bonus Tip! Custom labels or stickers are a great way to personalize this take-home treat.

Artisan Candles

Our collective love for candles reached new heights in 2020, and we’re totally OK with it. With so many local candle makers to choose from, a candle is an ideal wedding favor that your guests will be excited to take home and enjoy. Plus, there are even some shops that will let you customize the scents and containers so you can really make it your own. Some of our local favorites are Paddywax Candles, Nashville Wax Co., and Firefly Candle Co.

Jack Daniel’s Mini Bottles

Whiskey is a southern staple, and what’s a visit to Tennessee without a little bourbon? In case your guests have been too busy to experience the unofficial drink of the city, give them mini Jack Daniel’s to take home! These mini bottles travel well and are the perfect wedding favor for any Nashville event.

Christie Cookies

Founded in Nashville 1982, these beloved gourmet cookies make for perfectly sweet souvenirs. They’re always happy to do large and special orders, so take your pick and send your guests home with a fresh-baked cookie or two.

Loveless Biscuit Mix

The Loveless Cafe has been serving up delicious Southern favorites since 1951.

If you want to go the extra mile, you can also grab some jars of their perfectly sweet fruit preserves that will take those biscuits from wow to out of this world.
