How To Save Big On Your Wedding Favors:

By Andrea Winter

In an attempt to cut down the expenses for their wedding, some brides decide to forego the wedding favors, thinking that these are just small details anyway. While you agree that skipping this will not ruin your big day, a part of you still wishes that your guests would have something that they can remember your memorable wedding by.

Well, if you are creative enough, you do not have to give up entirely the concept of giving small tokens of appreciation to the people who joined you in the celebration of your big day. With these simple but practical suggestions, you will surely be able to come up with fantastic wedding favors that won’t leave a major dent on your savings.

Be crafty

You do not need to have a degree in Fine Arts or be a Martha Stuart or Rachel Ray to be able to come up with fabulous wedding favors. Homemade soaps, scented candles, handcrafted accessories, small boxes filled with chocolates, and bath salts—these are only a few of the many things you can make at home and that you can give away as souvenirs for your wedding day. Check procedures online if you have doubts on your handcrafting abilities.

Hit two purposes with one souvenir

Two-for-one souvenirs are practical and cost-effective. One example is a mini photo frame souvenirs that can double as table cardholders. Another option is a platter of small votive candles, each tied with raffia ribbon that can serve as table centerpiece. After the reception, each guest can take one home.

Go for edible sweet treats

Do you have a knack for baking sweet treats? If so, you can round up your bridesmaids for an afternoon session of baking cookies, cupcakes, or whatever sweet treat that can be a good memento for your wedding day. Wrap them in nice and colorful food paper and tie with a satin ribbon to complete the look.

Trim down the list

Even if you have a very inexpensive favor – let’s say each favor only costs $1, but if you have about 500 to 600 guests – then the expenses will still blow out of proportion. The best way to solve this is to invite fewer people.

Make some music

Personalized music CDs are becoming a popular choice for many couples today who want to give out inexpensive souvenirs that have a personal touch. Make a list of all the songs that you and your loved one hold close to your hearts, and make CDs. Do not forget to have a nice cover for the case, preferably a photo of you and your spouse-to-be.

Think green

A small-potted plant, a bracelet made from recycled magazines, or flower seeds placed in a little mason jar wrapped with handmade paper – these are just few of the many eco- and budget-friendly take-home mementos that you can provide to your guests.

Whoever says that you need to spend a lot for wedding favors is either extremely rich or has no creative juice in her body. If you want to give wonderful wedding favors without having to chase your money away, be sure to consider practical and helpful tips mentioned in this article.
