Cheap Wedding Favors That Do Not Look Cheap
By: Denise Sanger

Watching your money fly out the window as you are planning your wedding?  You are not alone.  Many couples are in the same boat you are as they struggle to have all the elements of their dream wedding while still adhering to a budget.  This is a difficult year for many people with the crazy economy, the high prices of gas and food, and the struggle many are having finding work.

If you are diligently sticking to your wedding budget - I have one word for you - congratulations!  You are one of the smart couples that will have an absolutely gorgeous wedding day and no one will know that you actually cut some corners to save your hard earned money for the future.

Wedding favors are an important part of any wedding as you really do want to give your guests a small token of your appreciation for attending your wedding.  But, do you have to spend a fortune for a nice wedding favor?  The answer is no.   There are some great wedding favors in the $1 to $2 range and some even under $1 that are beautiful and in no way will you be embarrassed to give the favor to your guests.

Let's start in the $1 to $2 range.  If you have chosen the Calla Lily as your wedding flower, there is a great Calla Lily candle that would make a wonderful wedding favor.  Other great candle wedding favors include the very cute Apple Of My Eye candle favor, the Perfect Pair matching pear candle favors, the adorable Whisked Away Heart whisk favor, and an assortment of coaster wedding favors for beach, fall, spring, summer, and winter weddings.   Your guests would absolutely love to receive any of these wedding favors as they are quite nice, very practical and all under $2 each.

If you need to stay in the under $1 per favor range, never fear as you have just as many fantastic favor options to choose from.  There are photo frames in every color imaginable from black to silver to gold with just as many designs to choose from such as scallop edge, smooth edge, beaded edge and even a Cinderella carriage photo frame.  These photo frames will do double duty for you as they first are used as place card holders at your tables.  You then tell your guests to pick them up and take them home with them and to place a special photo in it for their enjoyment.

If you do not want to use place cards at your weddings, you may want to consider book marks or key chains.  These party favors are available in an array of themes such as seashell for summer or beach weddings, poker shapes for Vegas themed which can also be used as wedding favors for the male guests of your wedding or seasonal bookmarks such as fall leaf or winter snowflakes.

Looking for a more eco-friendly party favor?  Choose wildflower seed packets.  These adorable favors are also great for bridal showers too.

Choose a wedding favor that you love from the first time you found it.  This way, you know your guests will love it too.


Denise Sanger is the owner of several wedding websites including  Buy Wedding Favors Online features a large selection of wedding party favors including cheap wedding favors and decorations.



Clearly there are a number of options to choose from when choosing your wedding favors, and those mentioned above should keep the budget for this particular expense to a minimum. Remember that a sentimental gift is likely to be cherished more than one that is impressive because of its price tag.
