Finding very cheap wedding favors that still impress your guests can be a tremendous challenge. However, gifts for your guests don’t have to cost a fortune to be elegant and beautiful. There is a wide variety of beautiful, inexpensive pre-made wedding favors to choose from. To save more money, you can even make them yourself. Brides on a budget know that weddings are expensive, so they look for creative ways to save. DIY favors are the perfect option to use creativity to save money.

These four inexpensive wedding favors are great ways to show guests your gratitude and love, without breaking the budget.

  • homemade coasters They are great for wedding favors on a budget, and your guests are sure to use them for years to come. Beautiful handmade coasters can be created using ceramic tiles found at your local hardware store, a flat brush, an image of the bride and groom or one that matches the wedding, ribbon, and decoupage medium. To make the coaster, apply a thin layer of decoupage medium to the tile, place the image you have chosen on the tile and smooth gently to remove bubbles. If you need a large number of coasters, it’s easier to apply the images to each tile before continuing to the next step. Once the decoupage medium has dried, apply another two coats of the decoupage medium to each tile, allowing the glue to dry between coats. Finish off the look of elegance by tying a matching ribbon around each coaster.
  • edible favors like candy or cookies, they are always cute and inexpensive gifts that all the guests will love. Choose packaging that fits your budget, such as small to-go boxes, decorative gift bags, or tulle purchased at a fabric store for a few dollars a yard. Candy options can be Hershey kisses, jelly beans, M&Ms, or any colorful candy. Place a handful of candy in each package, seal it, and tie a ribbon around the container for a personal touch. Cookies are also perfect for a tight budget. Cookies can be homemade or purchased from a local bakery. Place one or two cookies in the desired packaging and tie with ribbon or twine.
  • candles They are a great favor for any wedding theme because they are available in different colors, shapes, and sizes. When shopping for candles, choosing cheap votive candles will save you a great deal of money. They are usually available individually or can be purchased in bulk. To add color to guest seating, if budget allows, place candles in candle holders, tie with colored ribbon, and place one at each place setting. Votive candle holders can be easily personalized with the couple’s name and wedding date by printing computer information on address labels and affixing them to the glass candle holder.
  • plantable favors, for the eco-friendly groomsmen or for weddings taking place during the spring and fall seasons, they are easy to turn into cheap and fun wedding gifts. To make plantable flower seed favors, you will need a mix of wildflower seeds, small boxes or envelopes, and twine. In each packet, place about ΒΌ cup of wildflower seeds and tie a piece of twine around the box or make a small bow of twine for envelopes. If you wish, personalize by attaching a small poem or the wedding date. Favors can be placed at each place setting or placed in a decorative bowl for guests to take as they leave the reception.
