If you are thinking about giving homemade wedding favors to your guests, there are some do’s and don’ts for you to consider. While you want to thank your guests for their love and support of your union, you do not want to break the bank and sacrifice in other areas of your wedding. Especially when there are affordable options! Here are some helpful suggestions when making your homemade wedding favors.
DO: Look into homemade wedding favors in lieu of ordering pre-made favors. Not only will they be more cost-effective, they will create a special memory when you sit down to make them.
DON’T: Sacrifice budget for time. There are a lot of details in planning your wedding so making a hundred or so favors can feel overwhelming. Your bridal party and family can sit down to help you make handmade wedding favors. There is no need to order them if you can find people to help.
DO: Consider all costs involved with do it yourself wedding favors. Items like CD wedding favors can seem inexpensive until you pay for the label printing, cd replication and jewel cases.
DON’T: Settle for your first quote. For example, CD or DVD wedding favors might seem expensive when you start pricing out everything you need, however you can find wholesale or bulk pricing for homemade wedding favors and scale down the cost.
DO: Think about wedding candy favors! They are a popular choice and very easy and affordable to make.
DON’T: Just go out and buy candy. If you are making your wedding favors from home, you can also make the candy. By making the candy, you are giving a personal touch not only to the candy holder, but also to the sugary treats yourself. And don’t forget to enlist the help of your bridal party. A night of making candy will be a “sweet” touch to your memories.
