- 9 Cheap Wedding Favor Ideas to DIY For
- by Angela
There are many types of wedding
favors you can easily purchase for your guests. But some couples
prefer preparing for their own wedding favors for a more personalised
touch as it also signifies gratitude to their guests for attending
one of the biggest events of their life.
I have compiled some DIY wedding
favor ideas you can use if you are on a tight budget!
1) Bake cookies and personalise
your message on your cookie. You can even make it a fortune cookie
(with words of wisdom or a set of numbers for the lottery fanatic)
2) Buy sweets or candy in bigger
lots and repackage them into smaller sachets or boxes. You can
customise your box with your own message by using sticker labels.
3) Get bags of potpourri and
make smaller scented bags out of them. You can get ready made
sachets or buy nice fabric to make your own. Tie the sachets
up with lovely ribbons or lace.
4) Make creative coasters by
cutting fancy shapes out of corkboard or buying die-cut ones
and customising them with your own message stickers.
5) For an oriental twist, you
can buy wholesale lots of wooden chopsticks (real ones, not disposable
ones!) and repackage them nicely in pairs. These are quite practical
and it symbolises well for the wedding as chopsticks always comes
in pairs, just like every couple!
6) For summer weddings, hand-held
fans are a pretty favor to give. You can personalise them with
your own message and the guests can take them home after the
7) Gardening lovers will like
the idea of receiving little sachets of seeds that they can try
growing. I think my mum will be one of them. Haha.
8) If you have a Polaroid camera,
you can take instant pictures with your guests on the actual
day, punch a hole immediately and tie a ribbon on top to make
a really unique bookmark!
9) Personalised fridge magnets
are also a practical favor idea. You can print them yourself
or get a professional printer to do it for you. You can choose
lovely scenic pictures or cute pet images or even your own wedding
portrait and put your own message on it.
These DIY wedding favor ideas
could probably save you a bit of money. But if you are a really
lazy bride, or you absolutely have no time to DIY your own wedding
favour, its best to leave it to the professionals. A wedding
favor does not need to be really expensive, it's most often the
thought that counts. In my opinion, the best favor is something
that will leave your guests sweet memories of the wedding and
is practical enough to be used even after the wedding itself.
