Whether you're a big spender or penny pincher, everyone has some sort of budget when planning their wedding. We are always looking for new and innovative ways to save you a few extra bucks along the way.
Wedding favors are a great way to give your guests something at the end of the evening or to look back on and remember your big day. But here's the catch, providing 50-250 people a little gift can get a kinda pricey. On average, couples spend about $250-$1000 on wedding favors. So we've collected 5 budget friendly wedding favors a few of our brides have used in the past that will save you some extra honeymoon cash.
1. A Small Plant or Succulent
You absolutely can't go wrong with these teeny-tiny succulents! They are adorable and your guests will love them. Plus, they are affordable! You can get a pack of 72 succulents for only $130.00 on Amazon.com ... Totally worth it!

2. Homemade Baked Goods or Sweet Treats
Although baked goods can be a little time consuming, if you have some helping hands, this wedding favor can be a delicious and personable treat
for your guests. If you already have everything in your pantry or only need a few items from the store, this can be a super budget friendly favor! If you decide to go the sweet treat goodie bag route, just grab a few things of your fav candy and some brown bags with twist ties at the grocery store!
3. Support a Local Small Business
If you aren't careful, this can be a little on the pricier side. But in times like this, it's very important to support our local small businesses. Most of the time, small business owners are willing to work with you when placing large orders like you would for your wedding favors. These brides worked with locals who provide fresh jams, jelly's, and honey! Such a unique and tasty favor! We highly recommend reaching out to your favorite local shop to see if they can offer you any sweet treats like this.
4. Unique to You + Your Boo
Maybe you and your Bride/Groom have a "thing" that everyone knows is yours. This couple clearly has a love for hot sauce, so they decided to incorporate their spicy obsession into their wedding day! Giving away favors like this are a great way to provide your guests with an unforgettable gift. Just make sure it fits your budget!
5. Common Personalized Favors
Personalized items like koozies, hand sanitizer, cups, mugs etc. are great memorabilia for your guests to have and to hold, forever. These items can usually be found at lower prices and are one of the most budget friendly items you can get.
