When in doubt, go edible. We did Mexican Wedding Cookies that were right around $1 per person & each person got 2 for that price.

Or you could just forgo favors all together!

we are doing popcorn (grown locally) and getting brown paper bags stamped with our logo for cheap! Also, I made napkin rings for every guest that was super cheap and can be turned into Christmas ornaments… we are doing koozies too (that is all my fiance though)

I think the seed favors are a cute idea. You can easily have the DJ remind everyone to take them home.

Honestly, my honey favors were soooooooooo cheap, about $1.25 a person. I went to Michael’s and bought their little favor jars which were $12 for 20 jars (with a 40% off coupon, if you can get them when there’s a 50% off coupon even better). I bought 5 of them I think but I’ll get to return one box. So that’s $48 for the 4 boxes of jars, and then I went to the farmer’s market and bought 4 quarts of wildflower honey. This is more expensive than clover honey so you could possibly do this for even cheaper. The 4 quarts of honey were $44 so it came to $92 total for 70 people. The jars are small, they’re only 1 1/4 or 1 1/2 ounces but since a lot of people there will be couples they’ll be taking home 2 of them. No need to do a big jar. Since we’re getting married in my hometown this was our way of incorporating NC into the wedding since that’s where we met and where we live. It was NC honey.

@kermie: At the door would work. You can place them in a basket with a nice little sign

yeah, you don’t have to do favors. People won’t even notice that they’re not there, and won’t take something that “looks” cheap or that they don’t want.

I’m giving out boxes of almonds and also DIYed fans.. I think there are lots of options for favors at around $1 each such as keyrings, magnets, bookmarkers, fans, candles…

you can also buy small boxes from oriental trading about $20 and buy M & M or kisses or any other chocolates in bulk and put some in them. many ppl do jordan almonds too, but they are expense if you buy them per lb.

 

good luck!

I am also doing seed packages placed in glassine envelops with a seal.  I liked the idea of people planting flowers that would grow and be enjoyed long after the wedding. The flowers I chose all match the colors of the wedding.

Another thought is to make a contribution to a favorite charity on behalf of the guests. 

 

Good luck.

My going to use edible favors. I’m having a candy bar, but I’m also going to be baking. I love the melted chocolate into molds and wrapping them up. Very pretty.
