Cheap Wedding Favors - Ideas to spice up your Reception

Cheap Wedding Favors First, let's start off by saying that we don't think that you're cheap! We know how much you've already shelled out for the big day. So let's figure out a way to cut some corners and save you a few extra bucks. Have you ever considered buying your wedding favors in bulk? Believe it or not, there are a lot of wholesale companies that cater to the needs of the bride and groom. With a few clicks of your mouse you can locate several wholesale wedding supply companies on the internet. If for any reason you're not happy with your search results, you'll have to do some creative thinking. Here's an idea: bulk Chinese food cartons. Purchase the cardboard cartons and decorate the metal handles with curling ribbon. You can place a photograph of yourself and your significant other on the side of the carton. You can wrap some mints or other flavored candies in fabric mesh and insert them into the carton. This not only will offer a fabulous presentation, but it will make for a very unique wedding favor. If you're on a small budget and you've decided not to hire a photographer, than disposable cameras also make excellent wedding favors. Give every table a disposable cameras to take photographs with. At the end of the night you can collect the cameras and develop the pictures. Send everyone a "thank you" favor of a photo album containing the prints. While that may sound expensive, many shopping centers offer great deals on reprints. It's much cheaper than hiring an actual photographer; and your guests will cherish the pictures. Here's another inexpensive unique idea for favors: personalized sodas. Hire a printer to create labels that will contain your names and wedding date. On average 100 labels should run you about 0. It's a very interesting idea that won't cost you a whole lot of money. If you have different flavors of soda, you can always change the color of the label. For instance: pink labels for cola, white labels for ginger ale, etc.. If you prefer not to use soda you can always use personalized water bottles as your favors. Since we're on the topic of personalized wedding favors, you can always print your own labels and glue them around candles too! Place your name and date of your wedding on every label and tie or glue silver curling-ribbon to each candle. You can place the candle into a sachet or find inexpensive candle holders. As you can see--there are a lot of inexpensive gifts to give as wedding favors. Nevertheless, we advise you to shop around before you commit to one idea. You may already have a specific wedding favor in mind, but it doesn't hurt to weigh all of your options before you make a selection.
