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.

$10 each for favors outta get you something nice. Are you have any type of theme?

I thought of a great idea for beach weddings to give out personalized water, umbrellas or flip flops.

You can get this stuff from promo product companies and since you are buying in bulk. I believe you can meet your price point. Good Luck.

Hi. I'm a stationer and I recommend you keep it simple but don't leave out a small thank you to your guests. In the end, the favor is for them. Having a favor that is edible is the best idea I think. You could do a CD with your favorite love songs. There are tons of cute favor boxes out there that are real inexpensive. You could do the engagement photo idea in a nice handmade thank you card as a gift. If you'd like, I'm willing to work with you to make your event all you dream of and more. Feel free to contact me.

Another idea to throw in:

My son and future daughter in law are having the reception in a barn. We ordered egg shakers at eggshakerworld.com for $1.50 each. We are going to do the printing on them ourself but they also can also do printing on them, even your own artwork. They would be great for any type of reception, not just a barn one. We thought they would be good for the people who don't or can't dance to shake along with the music so everyone can get involved. They are a musical insterment and have a great sound.

Look at dollar stores as well as oriental trading magazine. I am doing party favors for everyone. Our wedding is for the summer. And I have even found places on line that are cheaper as well.

hi mommyof morrisson

these are my fav picks on wedding favors. you will be delighted with the results no matter what you choose. i do recommend ordering 8 weeks before your wedding day to be sure you really like the favor, and you can always contact them and pay for just a few samples.

Keep in mind, you should incorporate a favor that would match your overall theme, i.e., if you are having, let's say, a "white diamond" wedding, then you should order something with crystal. If you are doing a "fall wedding" - then something more organic. For beach, perhaps a wine stopper or other goodie with sea shells. If you want to be very classic, I would go with crystal coasters, a heart shaped wine stopper, or a small bottle of liquor or champagne from your local liquor supplier. You can't miss with any of these. I would only use a candy favor if you are not offering a whole bunch of desserts (other than wedding cake) for your reception. But these are nice too, if you want something more practical. You may also want to think about organic type gifts, such as seeds/seedlings to plant flowers, small plants or cactus. You may instead want to donate money to your favorite charity, say World Wildlife Federation, in which case I'd get some cute, cheap animal figurine with a note card stating "in support of WWF to help save the animals on our planet, we are donating money in your name." You can log on to orientaltrading.com and do a search for "animals" and come up with a host of cute, cheap and nice items.

Good luck! For your designing or photography needs, do contact me.

All the best!

Hi, I'm a wedding videographer and have seen some beautiful tables without favors. Once you have the table settings, the flowers, table number sign and the guest themselves, you really don't notice there aren't any favors.
Congratulations and enjoy your special day!

I am a wedding planner and I suggest to all my brides to choose a favor that you can eat or use after the wedding. Chocolate wedding favors are great. My company hand make them stating at $1.35 each.

Candy Buffes are allthe rage now, I want one but they can be too expensve unless you know where to shop. We are on a 500 dollar budget so we are doing small favor boxes with dollar store candy, bubbles and some cool light up rings that were a hit at mt bridal shower,
