This past year a couple made CDs of the their music and they put custom labels on the CD jacket with information about their wedding. These were awesome favours and a real keepsake.

Hire a photo booth company. Not only will your guest stay entertained and have fun, the photo strip personalized with your wedding details makes a great memento and it's a wedding favor sure to please everyone! Best luck on your wedding day and may there be many happy anniversaries ahead!!

Congratulations! Perhaps you should consider having a Sweet Treat Table set up for your Wedding. The display adds an amazing touch of decor, since it will be coordinated with your theme/colors. Your guest will enjoy the display and are able to help them self to sweet treats to enjoy at the reception or take home. It's the perfect favor!

I would recommend a compilation DVD showing excerpts of funny moments and/or photos. The DVD should run no longer than 3 minutes in order to hold one's attention. I can add text, titles, music and special effects to enhance delivery. The DVD is attractively packaged, yet affordable. Contact me as I would love to provide this service for you. Each copy would only cost $10.00. The editing fee will vary based on the condition and length of the source footage- But still very much affordable!

I had a ribbon printed with our names and wedding date on them. I tied them around a single long stemmed rose and laid them in a basket. My groom and I walk around the room and thank each person for coming and gave every woman one of the roses. It was a huge hit and gave us the opportunity to speak to everyone and thank them personally for coming.




what a wonderful idea.

My son's wedding was a destination wedding and they figured that guests did not want to have to lug much back home. My son is a musician so we had custom guitar picks made. The Bride and Groom made a donation to a scholarship fund to a summer music camp and created cards that explained the gift and they attached the guitar pick to the cards with glue dots. It was a big hit. The picks were very cheap. The guests appreciated that talented child would get to go to summer camp (I think they sponsored one child), and that they had a small token to take home to remember the wedding.

You can give a tea bag and a small jar of honey. Print labels to customize. You can also paint wine glasses and fill them with customized m&ms. There are a bunch of ideas. Please let me know if you'd like more. Scaled~uP Apparel

Yes!! Plenty of ideas: tea bag and a jar of honey. Print labels to customize. Paint wine glasses and fills with custom m&ms then wear in clear cellophane. Want more let me know

Guest Mount Pearl May 5, 2017
A piece of Tupperware! Not kidding. It lasts forever and it will be used all the time - a lovely reminder of a special day! All sorts of practical and colored items and are reasonably priced!

Every 'favor' I ever got from someone's wedding ended up sitting on a shelf, collecting dust. So, on each person's plate, we had a giant cookie, decorated with our monogram. Guest's could eat them while they were waiting for dinner to be served. Definitely worth the money we paid, which was $2.50 per cookie!

Make a donation in your wedding guests' honor to a charity that means something special to you or your family! At each place seating, have a little card...the size of a menu card....explaining that a donation to the *charity of your choice* was done in honor of *something meaningful*. That's a cute way to hit two birds with one stone!!

I recommend adding a personal touch to your wedding by giving <a href="http://www.customtobacco.com">customized</a> cigars.

We do sweet buffets for events that are under $400 which usually includes an assortment of cupcakes, cake shooters and cake pops, candy, and other desserts. You can visit my pinterest page http://pinterest.com/pweweddings/ and see some pics. Something else that is popular with our clients are the bride and groom boxes of candy. We make candy in flavors and colors the bride likes and put two pieces in each box and decorate them with ribbon and small favor roses, even little beads and they look great on the table. For 100 people this can be less than $300. The guests love them.

My wedding was at Christmas and we made ornaments with our colors in the ribbons and wrote our names and wedding date on them. They were a hit. Also, for my sister's wedding a number of years ago, I ordered magnets from Ebay that were fairly inexpensive. Her theme was calla lillies, so the magnets had a calla lilly, their names and wedding date and a cute little saying they loved. I still have one on the fridge.

Like others have posted $10 per favor should yield you a lot of options. You should think about your favor based on preference and then narrow down to price range. There are so many options out there and this process can get overwhelming. DIY will always keep your price down. This can be as simple as a hand written card, to ordering a complete favor kit and putting it together. It can also be as time consuming as some of the DIY tips on my site such as making your own candles. Another way to keep the price down is not have favors that match. You can find great deals where there may only be a limited supply of the same color, print or shape. Try to stay consistent but not matchy matchy. A good example of this is to make teacup candles. You can go to thrift stores and garage sales while you are planning the wedding and get some exquisite finds for cheap. Donations to a charity are also good. You can donate what you would like and then let everyone know that a donation was made in their name. Check out some more ideas at:

I ordered small tins, made my own round stickers, bought small flower pots at the dollar store (3 for $1) and ordered seeds. We filled the tins with seeds used tulle in the pots and it was a beautiful favor! I could get the pricing for you and give you a quote to do it for you or I'd be happy to give you the info and you could do it yourself!

Hi there - Eleanor Leinen here! I am a mixed - media artist/ designer and owner of UNIQUELY GIFTED ART. I frequently appear on national and regional TV and in magazines to give advise about creating party related items. In addition, I developed curiculum for professonal and aspiring event planners about creating party favors and goodie bags. In my opinion, creative and memorable hand-crafted party favors, if executed well, are always cherished and kept! I have reviewed many of the comments here and I see that a few suggest edibles. Respectfully,I disagree. I believe that wedding favors should be savored by your guests for a s long as possible and stand as a reminder of a special "shared experience." In saying that, I believe that great favors are usually ones that have functional benefits, and are designed to reflect the esthetics of the bride & groom, color scheme and theme of your nuptials. In addition, if you can provide a singular item with a variety of patterns you will also satisfy the varying styles of your guests. Lastly, be careful of inexpensive items that look great but are poorly made. I recently recieved a wine stopper favor that feel apart the first time I used it. All I thought of was "Wow, what a waste of the couples hard earned money!"

Your budget of $10.00 seems to me more than adequate and will provide you with lots of options. If you should still remain undecieded about your favors I invite you to visit the UNIQUELY GIFTED ART listing on EVENTECTIVE. I think that you will be pleasantly surprised at the sampling of our offerings. Also - feel free to visit my website's press, bio and services pages at -- WWW.UNIQUELYGIFTEDART.COM

In any event, enjoy the planning of your wedding and I wish you both - love and many, many blessings!

Hello, I am also a wedding planner, I have used this in the past, with small peat moss containers wich are very inexpensive plant a bulb or a perenial flower, that matches your theme,( colors) attach a scroll you can make yourself, tie it with a ribbon that also matches your theme, & you'll have a favor that will grow from year to year, and your quests will think of you every year when it blooms. Best of Luck with your Wedding.

Check out www.photoboothframes.com for some inexpensive favors. I bought some frames for Table placements and used them to invite guest to use the photo booth we rented. Worked out well.

Why do you think you need them? You've invited your guests to a great dinner, with music, flowers and maybe some champagne. That is plenty. The next best is to donate to a great charity. Step away from the coasters, frames and candles....

We have a glass coaster that you can put your picture and a thank you in it. The guests can change the picture or keep yours in it as a nice little memory. Put them under their water glasses on the table so when they pick up their glass it will be a nice little suprise. We customize them for you...you just email us a jpeg and wedding info and we do all the work. They are $2.00 plus shipping. mkjpoll@aol.com www.thecandleexperience.net

I do many beach weddings and have seen the couple buy seashells and write the names and date on them.. hot glue ribbon in your colors and it is a ornament... Beautiful, simple, inexpensive and special.

I have seen very beautiful book markers done.. you can put the verse you choose, your names and the date then tie the top with a ribbon of your colors.. they can actually use it as a book mark or keep it someplace special.

If you have some time on your hands then this is a great favor. Go to thift stores or garage sales and pick up tea cups with saucers, take them home and wash them, pack them away until closer to the day, go to a local nursery and purchase small plants or fresh flowers and place them into the cups, lay them out onto the entrance table or place by each seating. You can pick up the tea cups for little as 5 cents each at garage sales and the flowers can easily even picked from wild flowers costing you nothing.
Good Luck and Congrates

Is the $10 each wedding favor include the shipping cost too? You would have a problem finding your perfect wedding favors.

For some ideas you may feel free to view my portfolio for edible and non-edible wedding favors.

Good Luck & BEST WISHES!

We can provide great table favors in the form of Photo Booth strips in acrylic frames as part of our Wedding Model pack

Guest July 30, 2010
Hello there. I am an event planner out of Indianapolis, Indiana. I have made relationships with many - many - many favor companies (local and abroad). One of my favorites is very affordable (starting at under $3.00 each plus shipping). And, ironically, it happens to be one of the favors the guests seem to like the best - they ALWAYS get taken and people call me for "where can I get another one?"
I have access to a private, specialty/custom, candle maker who will make 100% soy (with cotton wick). She will match any color (just send me a swatch) and she has about a hundred scents (including wedding cake scented candles). They are 1 oz each up to 16 oz each. The smallest ones come in an octagon glass candle with a gold lid and a -old label. She will put your names and wedding date on the label. I take these and wrap them in tool tulle - with a little bow. You could do the same if you wanted or you could get organza bags if you wish it to be easier. You could even place them without being wrapped as they are pretty....just simple.
If you want me to make the connection for you, call my mobile at 317-490-7894 (Suz). Or you can visit my website at www.studiobrides.com and email me. Either way, if this idea does not strike your fancy, let me know and I will share with you some other product vendors we have used in the past. Maybe we can find you something perfect. Atrocious
As always, I will not charge you for this assistance as it is my agreement with the website to not charge for advice. The only fee you would have is for the favors/shipping you select. Hope to hear from you soon.

I had a ribbon printed with our names and wedding date on them. I tied them around a single long stemmed rose and laid them in a basket. My groom and I walk around the room and thank each person for coming and gave every woman one of the roses. It was a huge hit and gave us the opportunity to speak to everyone and thank them personally for coming.

My absolute favorite wedding favor is when the bride and groom put the place seating cards in a small picture frame I can take with me. I then print a picture of the couple with me at their wedding to put in it. I have a small collection around my desk. Every time I see a picture, I remember the special day. Small picture frames like this are lovely without breaking the bank. And there are so many kinds to choose from it is easy to incorporate them into a theme.

Best Wishes,
