Looking for inexpensive wedding favors? One thing that I’ve realized as a wedding planner is the fact that weddings involve a lot of little things that may cost a lot. One little thing on top of another and it can blow your wedding budget out of proportion. Want help? read on for some cheap wedding favor ideas and essential advice…

Wedding favors or giveaways, for instance, can be costly – because you have to give them to each of your wedding guests. Of course, the more guests you expect, the more wedding favors you have to prepare and you surely don’t want to settle with something not worthwhile nor presentable because it is something that expresses your gratitude to your guest. When the celebration and the merrymaking is over, wedding favors are those little things that guests take home with them and for sure, you don’t want to give them something that is not worth keeping.

However, you don’t have to spend a huge sum of money for wedding favors. There are inexpensive wedding favors that you can choose from. I personally admire couples who use their creativity to cut costs on their wedding.

DIY Wedding Favors for the Crafty and Creative Type

One DIY wedding favor that I also like is the idea of wooden planks etched with love quotes or a love poem. Personally, I have made favors myself using miniature cups and writing love quotes in them. I also use my fabric paints to make unique favors – These make great inexpensive, budget wedding favors.

Are you crafty and creative and looking for creative wedding favor ideas? I strongly suggest that you make your own favors and save a lot of money.

Beads make great favors as well and certainly one of the better DIY wedding favor ideas.

I advise creative brides thinking about inexpensive wedding favor ideas to plan early for their wedding and make their own favors.
