    I think those are pretty cute, but honestly I wouldn’t worry too much about it. Favors usually aren’t missed if they’re cut from the budget.

    i think it’s a cute idea! edible favors are always good. i would probably try give more than just one per person, but do whatever you can afford ๐Ÿ™‚

    you could even do without favors altogether if you wanted to. a lot of guests care one way or the other, so if you’re on a tight budget, getting rid of favors is an easy way to cut costs ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don’t think it’s too cheap, but it is a little generic. If it’s edible, I’d much rather have something home made which could be even cheaper for you! What about chocolate chip cookies? A few pieces of wrapped fudge? Lollipops? 

    Here’s some ideas – some of them are clearly out of your budget, but I think a lot of them would fit. http://pinterest.com/greenbrideguide/edible-wedding-favors/

    If you have the time what if you make something? Personally I really like edible favors. I went to a wedding before that had nicely done chocolate suckers wrapped in cellophane and tied with ribbon at each seat. I’m not sure if it would be cheaper than the mini chocolate bars but I thought I would mention it. Do what you can afford there is no reason to spend a ridiculous amount on a wedding or on favors… the guests might not even notice if there weren’t any ๐Ÿ˜›

    In my opinion, those favors do not scream “cheap.” They look cute and you could personalize them however you please. BUT I would suggest, if it’s feasible, to maybe give at least two per person rather than one.

    I’m partially biased, because I don’t like hersheys at all.

    I feel that a wrapped piece of mini chocolate is more suited for a brithday party or baby shower, not a wedding.

    You could get mini boxes of truffles or chocolates [they run about $1 each], or purchased large boxes of chocolates & find your own little boxes. You could also do homemade fudge [peanut butter fudge is NOM].

    I think they’re cute, but if your budget is tight, I would scrap favors. Nobody will look back and think you really spoiled them with a mini candy bar, or really cheaped out bc you didn’t give a favor, you know?

    They’re cute and one per person is fine. You can scrap favors altogether, though… they aren’t necessary. Or you can put them out on the table with the cake for people to take.

    @babylo0n:  

    I understand wanting to make your guest feel appreciated so if you can’t quite afford favors, I would scrap them and instead make it a priority to actually see and thank each of your guests on your wedding day instead. 

    I’d rather be acknowledged, thanked by the couple and maybe have a photo taken with them instead of a chocolate bar that you could get anywhere ๐Ÿ™‚

    @babylo0n:  I want to spend up to a $1 pp. TheKnot is having a deal for $20 for 100 personalized bars. 


    You could give 2 or 3 per person, and it would only be 40-60 cents per person.
