A potted seedling, I think is going to cost about $0.70 per person.

Unfortunately, my Mother-In-Law ordered favors without discussing it with us – she got chocolate truffles from a specialty shop in town that cost $4.25… per guest!  I nearly died when I found out, but luckily she paid for them, or I would have told her to cancel the order.  I had orignally budgeted $1-2 dollars for the favors.

Our DIY "photobooth" will cost about $2 per guest.  However, that includes the cost of the printer, which we can use or sell afterward, and the photos for our guest book, as well as the photo favors we will give to guests.

About 60 cents/guest.  Dark chocolate covered almonds in a little bag meant for suckers and a card thanking our guests tied on with ribbon.

We are having a professional photo booth.  It will double as our guest book- but it is still expensive- almost $1,000.  Divided by our 200 guests- $5.00 a person.  But I really really wanted it so we cut in some other places to make it work!

Zero dollars. We’re not having any.

Before we decided on no favours, our budget was $200 for 80-ish people. So $2.50 per person.

Gee our photo booth is only costing us $400. But the pics will be black & white. Perhaps yours will be in color?
