I have long debated even having favors, but think I’m caving, and would like to have some type of sweet or chocolate to be placed on the table in a pretty box or bag (nothing clear/transparent). I’ve been looking for inexpensive favor boxes or pillow boxes, but am having a hard time finding a great deal. It seems silly to even pay $1/box when the box will be thrown away shortly after the wedding.
My venue will be decorated in champagne linens, and I’d like to use an ivory/champagne/or gold box to be tied with a pretty ribbon. Does anyone know of an inexpensive vendor?
As a heads up-I’m not really looking for other favor ideas. I’ve seen some really nice and creative ideas, but a: don’t have the money and b:feel like even the really creative favors get tossed or forgotten, which is why I just want something simple that people can eat before dinner.
Thanks in advance for all your suggestions!

Wow…this is good timing. I just did a bunch of research for a client and found these guys for aboug 35 cents a piece. The catch is that they’re only available in quantities of 100 and you have to fold them yourself. Still…it’s better than a dollar.
Here are the two colors I looked up for her:
She just received them yesterday and was pleased. Another WB reader (can’t remember her handle) ordered from these guys and had a good review. There are ones on there that fold from a single piece of material for even cheaper.
Hope this helps!

I found mine at Target. They marked down tons of favor boxes. 50 for $6.48. You might check there, or other store like that. I noticed Michael’s and Hobby Lobby mark them down frequently too!!

I agree about efavormart. I got these http://www.efavormart.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=1599 on sale about 34 cents each. Go to their "steals of the week" page. I got my boxes personalized (which I never thought I’d do, because I didn’t want to waste the money for the same reasons you said). I’m putting some local chocolates in them, so similar ideas. But I also struggled with the whole idea of having favors, but these are working out to be about 65 cents per guest. Not bad!! =)

You might try something other than a box… a cone, a treat bag, etc. I just googled favor boxes, and there are templates you can download to save on costs.
