As your wedding day gets closer, you’ll be busy making dozens of decisions to make sure that the big day goes off without a hitch.
One of these decisions will be finding wedding favors. Although it won’t make or break your wedding, finding wedding favors can be a challenge for many brides. They want to choose favors that their guests will enjoy, without breaking the bank.
To help you out, we’ve put together a wedding favor guide for our budget conscious brides! Here are 10 wedding favors under $5 that will have your guests smiling all night.
1. Personalized Coasters
These are great because they can be placed at the table beforehand. Your guests can use them for their drinks at your reception and then take them home when the night is over.
2. Treat Bags
This is perfect if you plan to have edible favors like chocolates or cookies. You can put them out during dessert, and guests can pack up some sweet treats to go. It’s quick, easy, and a great choice for all ages.
3. Personalized Glass Mugs
This gift is similar to the coasters in that they can be placed at guests’ tables at the start of the night. They can use these mugs to drink out of during dinnertime. Just make sure to let everyone know they can take them home. Or else you’ll be left with more mugs than you’ll know what to do with.
4. Candle Tins
You can customize a candle tin for your guests with a sticker of your name and date. You can make it extra special by choosing a scent that you both love. This is a great favor for winter & fall weddings when the candles come out in full force.
5. Bottle Openers
Bottle openers are cute, simple, and practical. You can opt for neutral colored openers for all your guests, or do different colors for men and women. Consider adding a key ring for an added convenience.
6. Plantable Seed Favors
Plantable seeds are a favor that your guests will reap the benefits of long after you’ve said: “I do.” For a special touch, you can add a small note or message about why you chose those seeds and if they have any significance to your relationship.
7. Mini Picnic Baskets
For a rustic themed wedding, mini picnic baskets will fit right in. If you have an additional favor, such as tea or candies, these can be packed inside ahead of time. Your guests will feel like they’ve all been given little gifts, adding to the magic of the day.
A wedding favor that can double as decor in your guest’s home is always a win. Mini succulents and planters will look chic on the table, and you can mix and match for unique gifts for everyone.
9. Jam or Jelly
We can’t stress this enough, guests love edible gifts. A jam or jelly that goes along with the theme of your wedding is even better. Getting married in the south? A sweet peach jam or orange marmalade is ideal for a Georgia or Florida wedding. If you’re getting hitched up north in the mountains of Vermont, miniature maple syrup is a great local choice.
10. Personalized Playing Cards
Who doesn’t love a good game of cards during a game night with friends? Every time your guests go to pull out this deck, they’ll remember you and your wedding day fondly.
