    @MKWeddingBee:  we spent around $3 per favor, and we got rave reviews – which is funny, because it is something i questioned. the Bee said never use a favor that isn’t edible – we used these cute little pewter buddha statuettes for our escort cards and asked people to keep them as a gift from us. there wasn’t a single one left behind and several people even told us they loved them! i’ve been to a few friends’ houses since and they all have them on display, made me so happy!

    We’re doing a popcorn bar.  It works out to about $1.10 per person, which is a little higher than I would have hoped but not awful.

    Ours are going to be about $6 per person, custom chocolate covered goodies from a local chocolate shop. But we’re only having 60 people. Plus I ordered an extra 10 to eat myself haha.

    We spent about $2 / guest – on lotto tickets +  packaging + custom shot glasses… we’re actually having a fairly traditional wedding – just the favors are a bit sinful… 

    Shot glasses came out to $.76/per person (that’s WITH SHIPPING).  Great pricing at www.logobarproducts.com!

    We have a rather large wedding (inviting 240 – so spending $20/pp would have added a SIGNIFICANT cost to the budget).  On the other hand – if we were inviting <30 people to an intimate ceremony… I could see spluring for a $20 gift per guest… although it’s almost harder to think of what gift you could get everyone for $20.

    @MKWeddingBee:  If you only count our official favors, we’re spending probably $3.00 a person.  But we’re also doing a photo booth and have some fun silly things for guests to take home.  If you factor all of them together it works out to about $5.50 a person.

    I didn’t vote because I haven’t had my wedding yet but my cousin is a chef just starting out and I’m hoping we can get her to do giant cakepops with pearlized sugar crystals (they sparkle in the light!) for us and hoping she’ll do 200 for $300. If she says no I don’t know what I’m going to do because I don’t want to spend more than 300.

    Something like this is what I have in mind, the blue ones have the sugar crystals on them and I really like how the white ones are presented:

    I paid approx. 60 cents per guest for my favors and had tons of leftovers.

    I made vanilla bean sugar in plastic bottles and they were a big hit. I use the leftover sugar in baking and tastes great in coffee!

    For our s’mores favor I’m pretty sure ours came out to under $2 a person.  Which included the custom tags, ribbon, celophane (sp?), graham crackers, chocolates and marshmellows.  We included instructions on how to make them at home in the microwave too, which was a hit.

    we’re having 5 sugared almonds p/p… including their tulle circle packaging, and tags it works out to be probably around $1 each. 🙂
