@Ilovejesus30:  You could make your own chocolates! Could be very time consuming depending how many people you are having, but if you have the patience (it sounds like you do!) go for it!

@Ilovejesus30:  This isn’t making the favor, just putting it together, but I sense frugality in you also (high five) and I’m totally proud of the deal I’m getting for my favors so I’ll let you know.  I bought the Italian 2pc boxes, over 100 little paper roses, and enough ribbon to tie it up at efavormart.  Total cost for 100 boxes to look like this was $49.29.  I did it with the ribbon only tied to the lid so I can make all the boxes now and put the favor in at the last minute without scrambling to tie ribbon around it.  It also used less ribon 😀

I looked around at a bunch of websites and found a place that sells 63 truffles for $23.99.  I’ll have to buy two trays so that’ll set me back $48.  I don’t know that I could make 100 truffles for $48, that much chocolate isn’t cheap.  So total cost for the whole shebang is slightly under a buck a piece 🙂  I know you can do it cheaper but I think they look pricey so I’m happy.  Be sure to post what you end of making, can’t wait to see it!

I prefer edible favors. You could do pumpkin or apple butter, caramels, cakepops, maple syrup, honey- all great for a fall wedding. One cute one I saw last fall was a bag of  pancake mix, along with the instructions (you just had to add milk), and a tiny bottle of maple syrup.

@Ilovejesus30:  is am doing apple butter In 1.5 ounce jars. 

cheaper… Make pumpkin or apple cookies. Get cut wrappers and a ribbon in your wedding color.

For my daughter’s wedding-we bought Lindt truffles and put them in tulle circles and tied them with raffia.  Simple, fairly inexpensive and yummy.  I also like the “Fall-type edible favors too!)
