I went to a wedding that had cute little photo frames with a pic of the couple in them.

Buy the boxes of mint chocolates at the dollar store. You get around 25 per box. They taste pretty good believe it or not. use 2 per favor.


There is also a section that has wedding stuff. Sometimes they have little boxes or little champaigne glasses that you can make favors out of. That is the cheapest way for candy favors.

One of the weddings in our family had 3 Hershey's kisses tied up in 4-6 inch square of netting tied with a thin satin ribbon. Another had little tulle bags with a few lavender flowers and a little packet of lavender seeds. The little seed packet (could be printed on nice paper from your computer) said to plant them and remember the bride and groom.

Both were nice and inexpensive.

We did custom candy bars for our wedding favors. You can buy them online but they run around $1.50 a piece. I liked the idea, but didn't want to spend that much, so I decided to make them myself.


I went to a wholesale club (Sam's or Costco) and bought candy bars in bulk -- both Hershey bars and Crunch bars (a 36 count was about $13).

Using a basic graphic program on my computer I made wrappers to replace the standard Hershey's wrapper -- on the front I wrote our names and our wedding date and had a clipart cake (although could have easily used a digital picture of us). On the back of the wrapper where the nutrition information/daily values% go I put LOVE 100%, KINDNESS 100%, etc... You can also put a poem or a message to your guests on the back. (For ideas check out http://www.cust and http://personal  om/weddings.html)

I put several on a page and printed them from my computer (I had a small wedding -- only 50 people). Then I recruited a a girlfriend and together it we removed the outer wrappers off of all the Hershey bars and using a gluestick, we attached the new wrappers.


The end result was a personalized wedding favor that everyone liked -- it was somewhat time consuming, but figuring the cost of candy bars, paper, printer ink and glue it only cost me about $0.45 per candy bar (as compared to the $1.50 online) -- so it was worth the work.

I purchased 2.5" clear plastic heart boxes at $2.99/dz online (balloons galore) along with favor tags from Oriental trading co at 144 for $1.29. Have mini wedding conversation hearts for fill at $5.95 for 280 hearts. Found ribbon for 99 cents a roll and made bows w/ mini silver metallic hearts glued on (actually confetti) How much easier could it be!

Back in the day, the usual wedding guest favor was a small net bag of rice, tied with a bow. You can make these up for pennies, tie pretty bows, and attach little notes.


I'm sure most guests would have the good sense to know that they're just favors, and they wouldn't untie them and scatter rice all over the place.

go to We ordered custom made crystal jewelry and it was CHEAP!!!! The gal who made the necklaces was so nice. My daughter gave each bridesmaid a necklace to match the dresses as well as earrings. I also ordered Christmas gifts from her to match outfits I bought. She does a great job. Her website is not updated (just checked) but call her at the number on her site and she does call you back if you get her answering machine. I see the gals from the wedding wearing the jewelry quite a bit since the wedding!

For my brothers wedding we bought plastic spoons tulle ribbon and bags of hershey's kisses. We wrapped three kisses on a spoon in tulle, and on the ribbon we printed out a small note that read a spoon full of kisses from the mister and misses. They were a big hit and very inexpensive.
