Should You Skip the Wedding Favors?

Recently, at a bridal show, we heard once again the standard advice being uttered… “skip the wedding favors” to save money. This statement always shocks me. It’s not because we make favor packaging, but because favors can be one of the most affordable ways to add your theme or colors to your wedding reception tables. And, favors are an elegant and personal touch appreciated by guests when done right.

Favors Done Right on a Budget

So, how exactly do you do favors right? Well, favors can be a tricky part of your wedding planning. Brides often don’t have a large budget for wedding favors. The best first step to choosing the right wedding favors is to stop looking at them as something you have to buy. Favors can be handmade. They can be as simple as a relative making cookies to go into bags or boxes. Including a recipe card is a nice touch. And, the package is personalized with a tag marked “Baked with Love”. You don’t have to make your wedding favors to get something nice for little money. For a budget of $2.50 a person there’s a bunch of practical choices available. Whether you make your favors or purchase them, always choose something practical. Ask yourself, what on Earth will my guests do with this favor? Will they want it? Will they take it home or leave it on the table? Edible favors are always appreciated by guests. As a matter of fact, I often suggest just empty boxes for people to take home leftover wedding cake or items from the dessert bar. You have already paid for the dessert anyway. Why not give them a way to take it home. To help you get the ideas flowing – her’s our top picks for affordable wedding favors…
