Wedding favors can be intimidating for couples because of their cost, but a small token of appreciation for your guest’s attendance does not have to cost an arm and a leg. Many couples choose to make their own favors but this can actually cost more if one is not careful. Here are some great frugal wedding favor ideas to suit all kinds of different wedding themes and locations.
Recipes and Ingredients
If you have a rustic theme to your wedding, recipes and ingredients is a thoughtful gift that your guests will appreciate. If you have a dish you consider your ‘specialty’ and aren’t afraid to tell everyone your secret, print up recipe cards and add an ingredient or two and package it up nicely.
For a beach wedding, consider filling small plastic pails with ‘beach-ish’ items, such as a small bottle of sunscreen, lip balm, themed soaps or bath fizzies and more. Your guests will certainly get some use out of them while they soak up the sun.
You can find many sellers online that craft their own tea, and many of them can print the bags of loose leaf tea with your wedding information. Choose different kinds to suit everyone’s different tastes, or go with a classic.
Coffee/Tea Cozy Sleeves
We live in a coffee nation and your guests likely enjoy having a beverage every so often from a take out place. Let them keep the wasteful cardboard sleeve because your guests will have a beautiful hand knit cozy sleeve that will not only beautifully decorate that boring take out cup, but will be something that they will use for a very long time. Even if you don’t knit, you can buy these online from a crafter and support and independent company.
As you can see, giving your guests an awesome wedding favor doesn’t need to be expensive. Just think about the things you’d enjoy in your own life and finding a frugal wedding favor for each guest can be a painless quest.
