To be completely honest, FI were struggling with the idea of wedding favors and whether or not to have any. We've gotten many wedding favors over the years, from koozies we never used to shot glasses ingraved with very "interesting" sayings. No judgement on whatever favors people choose - just the fact that the bride and groom want to buy their guests something is sweet enough; however, I wanted to make sure that if my guests are getting a favor, a) it serves a purpose and b) it does not have our names plastered all over it.
We are having a winter wedding with a few Christmas touches to it. A little tree on the card/gift table, hot chocolate at the bar. However, I didn't feel that this was "Christmassy" enough for me and my FI's taste
So today I was suddenly hit with the idea for ornaments in our wedding colors as favors! Nothing crazy, just cute little ball ornaments at every place setting with a "thank you" tag attached.
I purchased 200 ornaments for $30 and used a $15 coupon on them, yay! Then, I bought small white gift tags in bulk. Those were $17. Then for my last touch, I bought a custom thank you stamp with our names and our wedding date on it, to stamp the tags with. That was the most important part of this little project, at $30.
I spent $62 for all of this and only $0.31 per favor! I personally feel that I saved a lot doing this, while still adding to the whole Christmas look of my wedding as well as it being a cute ornament my loved ones can put on their trees! (All of my guests do celebrate Christmas, so this favor works for everyone).
Any other December brides have cool favor ideas?
