Cheap & Inexpensive Wedding Favor Ideas

By Erica Tevis

Beautiful wedding favors don't have to cost a small fortune or be expensive! In fact, there are many inexpensive wedding favors to choose from on the wedding market today. Cheap wedding favors are great for the budget minded bride and are also great for weddings where you need to purchase wedding favors in large quantities and don't want to break the bank! Here is a list of some of the most reasonably priced, inexpensive, high quality wedding favors that you can get the most bang for your buck.

10) Candles - candle wedding favors come in all shapes and sizes, all themes and colors. There is definitely a candle within your budget which will work with your wedding theme. Be wary of scented candles though, if you place them on tables before the reception has started, the scent may be too overpowering for some guests. If they are scented, instruct your caterer to hand them out at dessert time. Some candles are priced higher than others, but many sites have at least some candle favors which are relatively low priced.

9) Guest Soaps & Sachets - available in many different shapes and scents, these scrumptious little goodies make wonderful additions to welcome baskets or guest bathrooms in your guests’ homes.

8) Key Chain Favors - a useful and practical favor, key chains make great gifts. Key chain favors emerged late 2005 wedding season and have continued to grow in popularity. Now available in many different themes, styles and colors - there is a key chain to suit almost everyone’s taste. Both men and women, young and old, will get use out of key chains. Affordably priced, most are under a dollar.

7) Bookmarks - Bookmarks, like key chains, are useful, practical and will not dent your budget. Again, this is a great unisex wedding favor - even children can use bookmarks.

6) Cookie Cutters - these may appeal to the women in the audience more than the men, but they are practical and inexpensive wedding favors. Print up your favorite recipe for cookies and attach for a personalized inexpensive favor.

5) Tea Favors - available in numerous designs, tea wedding favors are an inexpensive personalized favor option. For under a dollar each, your names and date can be printed on the glossy sealed pouch at no additional charge. A great favor for brunch, lunch, garden or tea themed events.

4) Personalized Poker Chips - a wonderful idea for a poker or Las Vegas theme wedding or for the poker enthusiast. Personalized poker chips are and inexpensive way to memorialize your day. These are so cute, your guests will be sure to keep them.

3) Eco-friendly plantable favors - seed packets, plantable fun shapes, and plantable bookmarks can be as low as a dollar on many websites. For a DIY idea, purchase a large bag of wildflower mix, some vellum envelopes or boxes, print up a small message that you can place inside and seal with ribbon, a bow or a sticker seal.

2) Place Card & Photo Frames - Let's face it; you need to display place cards (or seating assignment cards) so that your guests will know where to sit. Many place card frames include a place card inside, so you do not have the additional expense of purchasing a separate place card, and almost every household displays photographs. Place card frames are typically 2" x 3" – which is a perfect fit for your wallet sized thank you photo that you will send out. A double duty wedding favor which is practical and very affordable.

1)Candy and Edible Favors If you want something not only practical, but something everyone will enjoy, then consider candy and edible favors. Think Hershey kisses in a small bag or box, Hersehy miniatures on each table setting, Jordan almonds in tulle, colored M&Ms or jellybeans in a small mint tin, fortune cookies in take out boxes. First purchase your packaging – boxes, bags, mint containers all work well. Then find bulk candy, fill and enjoy! A simple favor that’s easy to make and affordable too!
