I was just curious how much is an adequate amount to spend on party favors? We are getting married on a golf course, we both love to golf, so what better way to say thank you than with monogramed golf balls?! I checked for just a white ball to have our names and wedding date put on and it was $1.35 per ball. Gettin 280 balls would cost almost $500! I almost fell out of my chair. Is this unreasonable?
How much did you spend on your wedding favors?

$1.35 isn’t bad per person. That’s pretty darn good — most favours run upwards of $3. If you’re looking to get favours for 280 people, it’s going to cost you a lot, sorry; that’s just the way it is.

Mine are going to be about $1/person for 200. I’m making chocolates and putting them in purple organza bags with a tag with our names and wedding date.

i still am undecided on mine, but hopefully keeping them under 2 dollars a person

I’m DIY favors, so looking at about $1 per guest. But from what I’ve seen anything under $2 each for a customized favor is a good deal!

We gave a little 3 oz jar of Savannah Bee honey to each guest, as we had a Destination Wedding in Savannah. They typically retail for $5 each but I went to the manufacture and purchased direct for $3.50 each. We only had 60 guests though. We definitely couldn’t have spent that much pp if we had more guests. As one bee said earlier today, my motto is “edible favors are my favorite favors.” 🙂

$1.35 isn’t bad per guest (think about how much they’re probably spending on your wedding gift- especially for a golf course wedding :-). We’re getting married at a golf course as well, and one of my favors (i’m having three total) is personalized golf tees… it was about $60 without shipping for a 1000 tees!! I’m bundling them in groups of 3 or 5 tees and tying with ribbon. These will be in a basket on guestbook table (along with personalized lip balms), so guests can each take a bundle or two. Then on table setting there will be boxes with jelly beans in my wedding colors. All of this ran me about $3.60 per guest. I would highly suggest the golf tees though if you want to spend a little less. The company is called ParGolf. Good luck!!

Mine are going to be about $1.00 per person but I’m DIYing a mixed cd. I bought bulk blank cds, found a free “cd sleeve” template online and created a graphic to go on each one. I just cut them out, assemble and whalaaa, a personalized cd for each guest.

I tried to stick to $1/guest. (It was a little challenging, but I didn’t want to do more.)
