Hey Bees! I need some ideas…For a while Mr ChampagneBling and I wanted to do CD’s for our wedding favors. The idea was to burn all the wedding songs onto the CD and hand it out as thank you gifts with a photo of the two of us holding a “thank you” board, in the front cover of the CD casing. However after shopping around and a little homework i have found that this project will turn into a bit of a costly one…more than i am willing to spend (we are working on a serious budget).
What cute favor ideas have you seen at weddings?

We stuck with an edible favor. I purchased green rock candy and wrapped them in cellophane and used ribbon that coordinated with the wedding colors (black) to tie them. We just put one at each place setting. The majority of people took them or ate them at the wedding.

We too went with edible favours. We went with love heart lollies – you know the ones that say things like “Kiss Me” and stuff. I got “LOVE” tags from etsy and some ribbon and hey presto cute favours!

OH thanks! I also think edible favors are the way to go…at least they won’t go to waste and the guests will eat them! THANKS!

We’ll have silver and purple dark chocolate hershey kisses with our wedding date sticker on the bottom of the kisses in little tulle bags…. we can’t afford to do much more than that though.

We did lip balm with custom labels (our names + date). They were nearly all gone at the end of the night so apparently people took them.

we are doing candy, caramel, and chocolate covered apples with a varitey of different toppings all wrapped in cello with a ribbon and a leaf tag on the stem which is going to be a birch branch.

Coffee and tea are our favors. We chose that because we are big tea fanatics (and by fanatics, I mean snobs LOL) and it’s easy to afford. We just got some small kraft paper bags, made some labels on the computer, and put enough for one pot in each favor. They are really cute! Our wedding has a ‘natural and local’ theme, so we went with a local organic roaster and tea blender, but you could also buy any whole bean coffee, grind it up, and package right before the wedding. A pound of beans ($12) made 30 favors.

I think we have decided on Candy Apples.
We also thought about do a packet of flower seeds for our guest to plant.

I myself am a super tight budget bride… simple and easy is what i am doing after i realized that coozie cups would be out of the question with my budget.
I bought colored tulle circles online (pre-cut) and am putting Hershey’s hugs and kisses in them and tying with a thin satin ribbon and putting a little tag on them that say “Hugs and Kisses, from the NEW Mr. and Mrs.!”
Cute, simple, and affordable! =) Hope this helps ya!

We did custom flavored fortune cookies! We were able to write custom fortunes in and pick the cookies that went with our colors (blue and orange).. so we ended up having fresh yummy favors for cheap (they bake it and ship it out a week before). You can get it around 65 cents to 1.10 per cookie depending on what you pick.
