If you’re on a tight budget, skip favors. Every time a question like this is asked, most people say they either don’t care about favors, or only want edible favors. Even if guests are travelling, no $10 favour will make up for it – nor do guests expect it to. They are travelling because they love you and want to see your wedding, not for the favors.

Yeah I know favors are rarely $10. I was just making the point that even at $10 you’ll struggle to find something useful for everyone. I do like the cookies idea; it’s a pity if many don’t like sweets.

I suggest skipping the favors too.  Guests really don’t expect them or want them.  🙂

Skipping is a-ok, but here are 2 ideas I liked:

Chapstick – buy in bulk online, buy your own labels to design and print. many people will use it, very useful for travellers who are on planes. if a guest doesn’t want it, they certainly know someone who does and your joy is shared!

Tea Spoons – my friend gave a single tea spoon with a single tea bag.  not expensive to customize the order with their names and dates, and who can’t make use of a spoon!

How many guests are traveling from OOT? You could consider doing “welcome bags” for Out of Town guests, then skipping the favors at the wedding. There are lots of cheap things you could add to an Out of Town bag. (ETA: This also saves a bit of money, because you can do one per family/couple, rather than one per person)
