If budget allows, a wedding favor placed at each place setting is like a little Thank You gift to your Guests. They can be homemade or purchased, elegant or funky and a great way to, again, show off your style.

While it may seem like a great idea to give everyone a CD of your favorite songs, a monogrammed wine glass or bud vase or whatever else you have seen on Pinterest or Martha Stewart, consider honestly if they would truly be able to use it or would it get tossed out or stuck in the closet. It would be better to have NO favors, than something that no one will use.

Things to consider:

  • Budget first – at $3.00 to $5.00 each, it sounds affordable but multiply this by 150 guests and you could be spending $750.00 – enough to have paid for something else you really wanted.
  • Edible favors are the most likely to be appreciated.
  • A donation made to your favorite charity, with a note at the table is always a fabulous idea.
