Inexpensive Wedding Favors

I am looking for a cheap and original wedding favor to give to guests at my wedding reception. I do not want to use bubbles, rose petals, or rice. Our colors are black and white with red accents and there will be about 300 people in attendance. I have been thinking for months on this, and haven't come up with anything yet. Also, my fiancé and I are hispanic, so anything along that ethnic line would be fine as well. i only have 4 weeks until the wedding, the sooner the responses the better!


Thanks so much,

Melissa from Topeka, Kansas


Strawberry Tuxedos

How about some strawberry tuxedos. If you could get a group of your family and or friends to help you they would be done in no time. You could purchase small white boxes at a candy supply to put them in. They would have to made the day before.

I think fans might be an original idea (and they are a spanish item) - at least I haven't seen that at any weddings lately. You could perhaps get them cheaper by ordering them in bulk and then decorate them yourself maybe adding ribbons and little tags with your names and the date, etc. If regular size fans are too expensive you might look for miniature ones at a lesser price. Good luck and God bless!

Red Hots

You could use Red Hot's candies and they would go great with the wedding colors and aren't that expensive either. I'm having a wedding in November and using the same colors as yourself. GOOD LUCK! (04/28/2006)

Hugs and Kisses

I was looking through wedding favor ideas for my son and saw a cute one.
Buy Hershey's Hugs and Kisses. Wrap one hug and two kisses with red tulle circles and tie with black ribbon with the following note. " A hug and kisses from the new Mr. and Mrs."You could put "Thank you for sharing our special day!" followed by the bride and groom's new address. (04/30/2006)

Dyed Rice

I know you said that you didn't want rice but do you realize that rice can be dyed with food coloring? It is actually pretty appealing to look at. (05/11/2006)

Bird Seed

I have seen birdseed used as the churches don't want rice. It is wrapped in net and tie with ribbon. Good Luck. (06/07/2006)
