Unique Wedding Favors

Updated on November 7, 2014

Unique Wedding Favors Don't Need to Cost a Fortune

So, you're reviewing all of the costs for your upcoming wedding... Some items are singular priced, like the music, the venue, the minister. Some items are priced per guest, like catering and favors, and even your cake may be priced by the slice. Well that means with 200 guests, at $30 /guest... Oh my.

I'll suggest some ways to be unique with your wedding favors and not break the bank. You want to save some $$ for the honeymoon, right? You can purchase inexpensive wedding favors at one of many online stores, personalized with your names and wedding date. Many unique favors may be re-used or re-purposed after the wedding to give lasting memories to your guests.

Give Unique Favors to Your Wedding Guests

There are so many ways to give your wedding guests unique favors at your wedding that they will still enjoy after the wedding. And this doesn't mean that you have to spring for Sworovski crystals for everyone either. (Maybe reserve the Sworovski for the bridal party?)

For example, give your guests jordan almonds (a traditional wedding favor) in taffeta bags that have been personalized with your names and the wedding date. After the almonds are eaten, they can be filled with potpourri and used as sachets.

So many favor items can be easily personalized and thus made unique for you and your wedding. This allows you to give favors that are unique to you without making them from scratch. Such items are hot sauces, water bottles, bookmarks, magnets and photo frames (with your favorite pic of course).
