Recently, one of my brides asked if I had some ideas for some budget friendly favors. Many of you have likely found out that buying favors for 150+ people can be expensive! Thankfully, there are a lot of options out there these days that won’t put a big dent in your wallet. This can be especially true, if you’re willing to do a little DIY. Here are some of my favorite favors at the moment!
Seed Favor Packets

1. Check out this printable wedding seed favor! For $28 you can get a customized template and print out as many seed favor packets you need! Along with the template all you’ll need is card-stock, seeds, scissors and glue! Maybe, a few helpful bridesmaid too

2. Package up some candy or even better, some yummy baked goods (just look at those doughnuts)! Check out this blog post that walks you through a cute packaging idea! Find similar favor bags here or on Etsy! I recommend looking for candy in bulk online, or at Costco or Sam’s. You can find bulk cookie dough there as well! Make it an event with your closest friends and family, and have a baking/favor assembly party! P.S. Find a cute stamp at Etsy (such as this one) or try Micheals and Hobby Lobby for a cheaper option!

3. Find some rock candy in your wedding colors and tie on a cute thank you tag with some twine or ribbon! I like this “Love is Sweet” stamp found here. Simply stamp some card-stock squares, punch a hole and tie around the candy!
