My friend is having a wedding with 500 people and wants party favors…She’s getting married in 4 weeks and expenses have gotten out of hand so she needs to be VERY MINDFUL of the budget. Any ideas?
Candles?bubbles?…something nice but inexpensive
Thanks a ton in advance:)

I just posted DIY bird seed hearts. I made 4inch hearts and estimated my cost to about 20 cents per heart (before tags and packaging). You could make 2inch hearts and even keep the cost lower. (you could use any cookie cutter shape) It’s super easy!

We are doing CD’s with all of the songs that we will be playing at the cocktail hour. Our guest list about half of what you are talking about. I wanted something a bit different. I ordered silver paper CD sleeves and I have purple ribbon that I am wrapping around them and I will seal them with our “B” monogram sticker. It is a bit time consuming, but I am hoping it will be a big hit with our guests!

Candy. Pick one kind of candy, get cellophane bags, and fill. Everyone likes it and it tends to be cheap.

I’ll probably be doing these cute little boxes filled with candy (you could use m&m’s) they’re $1 per unit (10 boxes) and the minimum purchase is 48 units, so you’ll be paying $48 for 480 little bride and groom boxes. You can probably get the candy for really cheap as well, you wont have to spend more than $70 from what I’m estimating 🙂

The vineyard I’m having my wedding at has lavender fields and other wildflowers so I think I’m going to do one of those papers where the seeds are embedded into them and then you plant the entire thing. Urghh! i can’t remember what it’s called! Hopefully you know what I’m talking about though. haha. They’re cheap and I think they’re cute.
I’ve also heard of a lot of people sending pieces of the groom’s cake home with guests as a favor in one of those cute little chinese takeout looking boxes.

@MsPanda: This is very cute and meaningful. Love!
I’m doing mason jars for my wedding but they’re at least .75 cents each used so $375 seems like a lot for a 500 person wedding. The thing about the mason jar favors is that they have triple uses so I’m saving money that way. They will be used first as seating cards. Guests will walk in and grab their mason jar and it will have their table number on it. Inside there will be a note with something along the lines of “drink out of me or fill me up with sweets. Either way I’m yours to keep!”. So three uses: seating card, drink cup, favor.

Also forgot to mention, I dont know if your friend can book a photobooth, but I booked one for $475 for 3 hours, so she might be able to find a good deal on that, and the photostrips can serve as a favor…

Hey date twin. 🙂
I LOVE this idea, I’ve never seen it before! We are doing Oxfam favors (individual cards for each guest with a selection of donations for specific items) but I love these and may think about doing these as well.
