Have you decided what kinds of wedding favors to pass out to your wedding guests at your reception? Lots of brides will tend to pass on the wedding favors or pass out a mediocre favor when they find their budgets a little too tight for comfort in lieu of some other special detail that they’d like to have in their weddings. But if I were you, I wouldn’t skimp on the wedding favors for your guests. There are too many other places in your wedding where you can save a ton of money that it isn’t worth cheating your guests out of a nice thank you gift for their attendance. And that’s what wedding favors are really all about, a nice little thank you favor for the people who’ve taken time out of their busy lives to travel for your wedding, bring you a gift and be there to support you. So basically, great wedding favors are an excellent way to say thank you to all your friends and family. Here are some great ideas for wedding favors you can use if you’ve found yourself with a creativity block.
Personalized Wedding Favors
One of my favorite things about weddings is that they are a great time to show off your own individualism in decorating and style. From the print on your wedding invitations to color combinations and yes, even wedding favors, your wedding should be completely you. One of the best ways to make your wedding favors all you is to give something that personifies who you are, so look at some of the things that you love. If your favorite dessert in the whole world is a Wendy’s Frostie – then serve those as your wedding favor. If you love bottled Dr. Pepper, then why not give out a bottle to each guest with a special tag? It can work with anything you like, from your favorite chocolate chip cookies to songs and flowers and even candies – it can be a cinch to pick out the perfect personalized wedding favors for your wedding.
Homemade Wedding Favors
One of the best ways to save money on your wedding favors is to make as much as it as you can by yourself, and you’d be surprised at just how much you can do on your own! If you love to bake or cook – then make a small decorative bag of cookies for each guest, or chocolate lollipops. If sewing is more your action, some decorative bags filled with scented beads or potpourri can be an excellent wedding favor. Check online for a lot of great ideas on how to make your own homemade wedding favors.
Cheap Wedding Favors
With all of the planning that you have to do for your wedding, many brides will simply purchase their favorite wedding favors from a website offering a special sale, and there is nothing wrong with that. You can find some excellent sales and specials on wedding favors online, and your guests are sure to appreciate them as well. Just be sure that you price them out to make sure that you’re really getting a good deal. If it’s cheaper to make it yourself but you just don’t have the time – then why not ask some friends or family members looking for ways to help to assist you in making them all?
