Cheap Wedding Favors!

By Johny Borubony

The budget for wedding favors often depends entirely on how much money you plan to spend on your wedding. Whatever you decide to do, if you are having a large number of guests, it may greatly impact the amount you can afford to spend on each favor. The answer to a big wedding with many guests but finite finances is to use cheap wedding favors.

Candles are one of the simplest ideas for cheap wedding favors and you can find simple candles available at very affordable prices. A way to make the candles look more exclusive is to tie a personalized ribbon around the candles. Arranging this is not as difficult or as expensive as you might think, and there are many companies that specialize in this type of work that could provide the ribbon on a reel with all the wedding details, so each piece can be cut to length. A simple taper candle tied with your personalized ribbon can be placed at each place setting to create a really inexpensive wedding favor.

Of course if nothing else springs to mind, why not just use the most popular; candy, as it is easy to arrange and won't break the bank. By purchasing the candy in bulk you will save money; then you can divide the candy out into small presentation boxes or tins. A final way to give candy as a wedding favor is to buy candy bars with personalized wrappers. You can easily expand upon this idea, without costing too much more, by adding special wrappers especially for the wedding. Usually things like details of the big day and an image of the bride and groom are all that is needed, but it is very effective. Because the wrappers are the same for every wedding guest, the cost will come down dramatically and proves to be a cheap but not gaudy wedding favor.

If you would prefer to give something a little more practical but still within your budget, then why not give the guests plant seeds in a box. Just to make this a little more exclusive, the seeds can easily be placed in a small container or pot that is just big enough to fit them in. As the pot is only a symbolic gesture, it can be very small; in fact just large enough to carry the seed. This is important because small pots can be purchased rather inexpensively while larger pots will be significantly more expensive.

Another great idea for a wedding favor which is also very affordable, is a pen with the names of the bride and groom as well as the wedding date inscribed on the pen. Pens purchased in bulk are not expensive and if you then add some stationery to go with the pens, you have a gift that is useful and remembers a special occasion as well. This wedding favor shows what you think of your guests because you are telling them you want to hear from them and to know what they thought of the wedding. By placing an addressed envelope for every guest on the table with the stationery, there is a greater chance that the bride and groom will actually receive thoughts on how the day went.
