Handing wedding guests a wedding favor has almost become a tradition, although nobody really expects to receive anything when going to a wedding, most people will confess to being very happy with a little something to remember the weeding by, a wedding favor.

 

Not everyone can afford to produce a big flashy wedding and the price of wedding favors can really add up.  Everyone knows that the cost of a wedding alone (without the added frills) can become a very heavy toll on a young couple; a wedding favor does not need to be a very expensive or a rare thing to be appreciated by all.  Many people will tell you that receiving a wedding favor is, by itself, a nice gesture and that they would greatly appreciate anything, since it indicates that the bride and groom have thought of their guests.

 

So what would make a nice, inexpensive wedding favor?  Think of something that will surprise your guests and give them a sense that you truly thought of them and wanted to give them a little something as a token of your appreciation of them coming to your wedding.  Almost anything can be turned into a wedding favor.  A wedding favor is not limited, and it doesn’t even have to bare the sign of your wedding, although having some sort of indication of the event is always a good idea.

 

Many things that you can buy in wholesale will serve you as a wedding favor; your creativity and hard work will do the rest.  Think of something that is unique, it can be the date of your wedding, the season or anything both of you – or even one of you – is known to like, or to do.  Try to think of things that associate with passions of yours.  Some people like to bring up the way they met on their wedding favor, perhaps you met at a local karaoke bar or at a small café in Italy; you could purchase boxes of matches from that place or have them personalized with a picture of that location.

 

Here are a few ideas you can use right away that are not too pricy, and you can make them in a reasonable amount of time.  Fortune Cookies are always a nice treat.  Print out individual fortunes, or have your wedding date and names listed on the fortune, and you’ll have something sweet to put on every table.  This way everyone will know that this was specially made for the wedding.  A deck of cards is another fun, creative idea, with many possibilities of personalizing it to the wedding by printing, writing or sticking things on the cards or card box.  A word to the wise, better hand these out as late as possible or you may end up with a few guests starting a poker game at your wedding.

 

Gourmet Coffee Packs are also a great wedding favor, assign different coffee flavors to different tables so guests can trade-off.  Place the coffee in tulle and tie a beautiful ribbon (which matches your bridal party’s colors) around the favor.  This wedding favor will be well-received by the adults!

 

Wedding favors are a developing trend, not difficult to make, and really fun for your wedding guests to receive.  Start thinking of what wedding favor you will have at your wedding!
