jmarie23 :  personally, I prefer favors that are edible. I notice at most weddings I attend, the favors that are personalized and not food or drink favors get left behind.

We made and bottled out own mead in 375ml bottles for favors.

For a rustic theme I’m thinking a burlap bag or a mason jar filled with edible goodies like candy or something.

Some visuals:

My sister hoested a party and used these little mason jars and filled with hot cocoa mix and mini marshmallows with a bow on top and people loved it!

 

 

 Maybe even jam or honey if your area is kown for it:

Best way to keep from wasting money on favors is not to have any. Especially with 250 guests.

jmarie23 :  OK totally didn’t see the 250 people part… Maybe something like flower seed packets?

Or I went to a wedding where thre was a popcorn bar as you walked out. Little clear cone bags that you filled with different flavored popcorn. They ordered it from the hampton popcorn company and it was delicious. Just a bunch of large tubs with a scooper in each.

jmarie23 :  I don’t see how but then again I tend to throw up the middle finger to certain things etiquette appropriate. 😅 Personally, wedding favors seem like yet another way to waste money on a wedding.

plenty of people don’t do favors! you could also announce (or print in your programs) that in lieu of favors, you’ve contributed to x charity..

jmarie23 :  We are having a rustic wedding too! We are doing mason jar mugs (with a handle) with a chalkboard label on it. It will be their drink cup for the night and their favor.

A couple of the worst hosted weddings (in terms of quality and quantity of food), that my family has been invited to, managed to squeeze personalized favors, into their budget. They were either not taken or taken and thrown out afterwards. I’m sure more of the guests – not only my family – wished they had thrown the favor $$ into the hosting budget.

heavenlyflower :  I agree, we’re trying to cut costs everyehere possible which includes a lot of DIY. When we thought about favors, Fiance and I weren’t able to throw that out the window even though we’ve thrown a lot of tradition away… sorry mom I’m not wearing stark white and my ering is blue sapphire! lol We just feel it’s appropriate to give a favor as a thank you for attending which also has a strong influence from some close family.

So when deciding what we would do, we picked something that could be consumed. Our families and friends are all drinkers, so an alcoholic beverage works well for us. We made it ourselves at a brew your own place. Chances are some will be left behind or we’ll have too many which is fine because we picked something we will enjoy! So any extras are gladly coming home with us! Mead is similar to wine in that as long as it’s stored properly, it will last for years to come so no rush on drinknig it right away!

jmarie23 :  I’m sure it costed us more than you’re looking to spend. It came out to be just under $4 per bottle in the end including labels and all, so a reasonable cost.

We will have probably about 10 kids total, so we also made a batch of cream soda for them. Minimum batch is 48 bottles and that came to $60 for that batch. Again, we picked something that we would consume (actually Fiance and my dad cause I don’t drink soda) to make sure the extra wouldn’t be wasted. Also considering putting the extra soda bottles in our hotel bags as an option.
