Wedding Favors on a Budget

Updated on February 25, 2010

So you want to give your guests favors to remember your wedding by, but you don’t want to devote a lot of time and money to it. Here are some quick and inexpensive wedding favors that will add to the charm of your big day and delight your guests without breaking the bank.

Seed packets for a spring wedding

Seed packets can be a great favor for a spring wedding, particularly one that is outside or in a natural environment. You can go about this in several ways. You can order seed packet wedding favors online and have them printed for a personal touch. This is by far the least time-consuming method but may cost a little more than making them yourself. Alternatively, you can do it yourself by purchasing organza bags, filling them with wildflower seed, and attaching a printed card with your names or a poem on them. Or you can use a template to create a seed envelope. These are useful favors since guests can plant them and enjoy flowers from your wedding all spring long!

CDs as wedding favors

Creating CDs of some of the couple’s favorite songs can be a great favor for your guests, and one that they will be sure to use. Compile a disc of songs that are meaningful to you as a couple—your first dance, your favorite songs, and even that terrible song you made fun of all night long on your first date! Be creative. In the CD case, include a short summary of why each song is special to you. Your guests will enjoy having a soundtrack of your journey together! For a bit higher price, you could also hand out CDs of your reception band.

Personalized Bookmarks

If you’re the scrapbooking type, consider making personalized bookmarks for your guests. These are sure to be used, and you can decorate them in any way you want. Include your favorite poem, a note to your guests expressing thanks for joining you at your wedding, or even snatches of your vows. If you are really DIY-ambitious, put guests’ names on each bookmark. You can even use them as place settings at tables during your reception.


Candy is always a winner, and it is cheap and easy to make into wedding favors. Simply tie up small bags of your favorite treat for your guests. A little decorative ribbon to tie the bags off is inexpensive but very eye-catching. Several companies even allow you to order personalized candy and chocolate.
