I havent had my shower yet. But my sister gave small candles with ribbons tied around them – very cute. Also did little tins with pearl mints inside (everyone lived those) andd white or milk chocolate lollipops that the bridesmaids made. you could get a shell and starfish mold maybe. hope this helps 🙂

OH! I just went to a wedding, but it still could work!
They took a starfish, and put a little tag around it with a quote I think or maybe their names! It was cute! You could do this with seashells inside a little votive or vase with a tealight or something! DOLLAR TREE/STORE!!
Or maybe you could give them a pair of flip flops from Old Navy! Those are pretty cheap! And maybe a a flower or cute tag!?!? Depending on your guest list of course!
Endless opportunities! Have fun and dont overwork yourself!

thanks for the ideas. i was getting stressed cuz my Maid/Matron of Honor only mentioned we should give favors yesterday and i agree. we both just hadnt thought of it sooner!
i like the idea of chocolate or flip flops, something they will eat or use, lol. although don’t know everyone’s shoe size, so i might stay away from that. wish i could afford beach towels for everyone!
wait! if i did find cheap beach towels – what do you think?? weird or good?

@ItWasntMe: i like that too! so maybe if i could find them in a store this week. basically a lot of things i found online i can’t order because they won;t get here on time, so i have to find something good and cheap in person. bamboo coasters, another good idea – thanks!

so yesterday i went shopping for boxing day and finally decided to just pay for leather luggage tags as favors. i originally wanted to do this for my wedding, but could never find nice ones that were affordable. so i decided i would just do it for the bridal shower cuz i had thought it was such a good idea….AND i finally found really nice ones that were $4 and $6 each (more than i wanted to pay for favors, but i was getting desperate)….so i get to the cash and didn’t even realize that the boxing day sale stated that the whole store was 50% off!!! score!! i bought even more after that and will return the extras! just wanted to share my awesome deal!

I’ve thrown 3 bridal showers in the last 2 years. This is what we gave to the shower guests…
Shower #1: Small clear boxes with hershey kisses (I paid for 100% of the almost $1000 shower so favors were small and CHEAP).
Shower #2: Potted plants. I dont know the lingo but we gave each guest a plant that could be planted in the fall and would fully bloom the following Spring. They were very pretty.
Shower #3: Jars of gourmet hot fudge. Guests got to choose from regular chocolate, mint chocolate, hazelnut or raspberry chocolate. I think these we’re the biggest hit of all of the favors I’ve given.
We’re going to be doing a perfume bar for my bridal shower. Each guest will get a perfume bottle (my family use to own a perfume bottling company so we still have tons of bottles in storage) and they’ll be able to create their own scent from a bunch of different options.
