While they may be one of the simplest detail of a wedding event, wedding favors are often overlooked by many brides and grooms. This mistake has been very common among couples who are very focus on the major details of their wedding without noticing that they are missing the small ones, which in reality make a great sense during the entire occasion.
Though they are not mandatory, but let’s face it wedding favors have been a part of the wedding tradition. They play as token to show appreciation to the guests who arrive with gifts for the couple. Wedding favors are traditionally to let them know that they are thanked by the bride and groom.
Wedding favors these days come in endless choices to choose from. There are so many suppliers and manufacturers that specialize on such tokens that are meant for weddings only. It can be challenging to find the right wedding favors, especially if you are on a tight budget. But don’t worry because there are always easy and inexpensive favor ideas the you can find along the way, and they could definitely complete your wedding without spending too much.
Perhaps the easiest are flowers, and are very cheap in terms of using them as wedding favors. There is virtually no hard preparation when presenting flowers as your wedding souvenirs. Depending on how many guests will arrive, the your choice of flowers may vary. You may consider giving a single red rose for each guest, as it symbolizes ‘Love.’ Flower favors are very easy and you don’t have to buy packaging materials to wrap them. Perhaps what is only needed are nice ribbons to make a nice bow on every stem of the flowers. If you will use flowers as centerpieces, you can use the same kind of flowers as wedding favors for the guests. You can instruct your florist to place one flower at each place setting right after they arrange the centerpiece on each table.
Another easy and inexpensive idea would be candies. There are plenty of ways to give candies as favors of your wedding. You can use small favor boxes, organza bags, pillow-shaped plastic containers, mini baskets, tins and a lot more. Perhaps the easiest, yet elegant way of presenting candies is by having them placed in large bowls or glass jars, which can double as centerpieces to decorate the tables. Just provide favor containers on every place setting so that the guests can help themselves on hundreds of candies sit on the center of their table.
Last but not the least are candles. There are so many candle wedding favors to choose from. They come in various shapes, sizes, colors and scents. They can be floating candles, votive, or tea light candles that can beautifully sit on the tables of your reception. You can make your own candle favors or buy them in bulk at a discount price. These are just a few cheap wedding favors that are very easy to make or assemble. Other easy options for practical wedding favors can be found online.
