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.
