we are going to turkey and Italy for 3 weeks and since I still am in midst of planning wedding, I would love to see if can get a deal on wedding favors for our guests or even wedding invitations. Does anyone know any good places to check out that would perhaps save us some money? (our dollar is almost 2 turkish liras…so hoping to take advantage of that)
Your help is greatly appreciated

Hi, I know you wrote this over a month ago, but you can definitely check out Cağaloğlu or Tahtakale. I’m absolutely sure that you’d save a lot on wedding invitations if you were to go to Cağaloğlu, I don’t really know about wedding favors though because they’re not a thing in Turkey. We prefer to give out candy at weddings which are kinda like favors but I’ve never seen other stuff given. I hope I’m not too late with the answer 🙂

I actually was just in Istanbul a few weeks ago. I guess it depends on what kind of favors you want to give. I think Turkish Delight would be a great wedding favor. You could buy in bulk at the Grand Bazzar and you should get a discount – always try to haggle price at the Grand Bazzar. Then you could portion them out and indivudually wrap them for the wedding favors.
