I think it just depends on your overall budget and how much you want to spend on people. 🙂 I’m hoping to spend $1 or less per person/favor. If you found something you’re in love with that’s perfect, though, I don’t think $200 for 140 people is unreasonable, especially considering some of the more expensive favors I’ve seen.

Thats putting you under $1.40/guest!
I think there are plenty of little things on WeddingChannel Store or Exclusively Weddings Website that you could get great deals on! I suggest signing up for their email notifications and waiting til you find some good promos/offers!

Best of luck!

We did a candy buffet and it cost $4 per person. Stay away from that! I thought it would be much cheaper but boy was I wrong!

I spend $1.2 per guest. I think there is no reasonable or not, it’s just depending on your budget and your comfort zeon

I’m spending 3-5 per guest, but I’m buying the favor, ribbon, tags, and boxes.

Fiance wants to do personalized pint glasses so I have a feeling its going to get somewhat expensive after you factor in the bags that I want to put them in and the personalized ribbon I want to tie them up with.

We’re estimating about $150 for 100 guests. We’re doing small bottles of taco sauce from a local restaurant, so it’s about $.99 for each bottle and the sauce itself is $4 a bottle, but they’ll go a long way :).

When its all said and done, our favors will probably cost about $5 each. We are giving each guest an orchard mini apple pie (about 6” in diameter) to go along with our fall theme. The pies will come boxed in individual white boxes and we will finish them off with burnt orange and brown taffeta ribbon and matching favor tags. We have approximately 80 guests so our favors will run us about $400 (pies are $4 a piece and the rest will go towards tags and ribbon). 

They will be similar to these except obviously they will be apple and not whatever fruit that is and they will be wrapped with coordinating ribbon. Honestly, our favors are one of my favorite parts of our wedding.

ours will be under $100. We are doing $1 lotto scratch offs. I got mini envelopes to put them in for $7.00 and we are having around 75 guests, they will double as the escort cards as well. I thought it was a fun idea. I am the person that throws away the favors or doesn’t take them at all. So this idea was great for us. (just enough of the cheesy factor for us too..lol)
