A wedding is one of the most exciting days of your life, but it can also be pretty expensive. After buying your dress, booking a reception hall, ordering food and sending out invitations, your bank account can look pretty bleak. However, you still want to get your guests nice wedding favors to show your appreciation. Luckily, they do not have to cost a fortune. In fact, they can be quite affordable. Here are six wedding favors that will not break your budget.
Who doesn’t enjoy a nice bag of candy? A bag of candy is a tasty treat you can give your guests that won’t break your budget. For example, you can choose to give your guests some nice dark chocolate with a personalized note from you and your spouse. If your guests are not chocolate people, think about another sweet treat you can give them like a bag of jelly beans.
Personalized Wedding CD
A personalized wedding CD makes another nice wedding favor. Include all of the songs that were played at your wedding, so your guests can have their own piece of your wedding to take home and remember. Every time they play the CD, they will be reminded about how much fun they had at your wedding.
Candles are inexpensive wedding favors that really show your guests how much they mean to you. Don’t be afraid to get creative when buying your guests candles. For example, if you are having your wedding in the fall, you can give away pumpkin scented candles. If you had a beach wedding next to the ocean, give your guests sea breeze candles. Tea and Honey Nothing says soothing like tea and honey. Consider giving your guests a bag of loose tea with a honey stirrer stick at the end of the wedding. After a long night of celebrating and dancing, they can appreciate an enjoyable cup of tea with sweet honey.
If you are the crafty type, think about sending your guests home with some handmade soap. Just put the soaps in pretty drawstring bags and hand them to everyone after the wedding. Also, handmade soap is inexpensive to make and is useful for everyone. This craft can be a lot of fun for you, and incredibly personalized for your guests.
Most of your guests will really appreciate a framed photo of you and your spouse. After you get your photos made at a photo center, go to the store and buy frames. The frames don’t have to be anything expensive or fancy. When your guests see you and your spouse in a framed photo, they will have smiles on their faces and be reminded of your wonderful wedding day.
These are just several wedding favors you can provide for your guests. Remember that a wedding favor does not have to cost hundreds of dollars to mean something. Whether you buy your guests candles, personalized CDs or tea and honey, they will appreciate the fact that you thought of them on your special day.
