Cookie Favor Ideas?

Hello!

A few questions regarding favors...

The number 8 is a bit of a theme for our wedding so I was thinking of doing 8 shaped cookies for favors.  I'd like to do this as cheap as possible since everything is so darn expensive!

Does anyone know a bakery that will do this for a reasonable price?

If not 8 shaped, anyone think that just buying a large amount of cookies from Costco and bagging them myself would be a more economical way to go?

TIA!

    I don't know any cookie places, but saw on 190 North that Bittersweet makes them and they are $2-$4 each, which seems high. What if you got an 8 cookie cutter and made them a few days before? I don't really know if you would want to, but could be a good economical way to go? Do you have any Aunts/Grandmas that might want to help? haha:)

    If you are looking for a cheap alternative to "8" shaped cookie, how about an 8 ball. You could buy some round sugar cookies from Costco as you suggested and paint them with frosting to look like "8 balls". 

    Otherwise, where are you looking for a bakery at? I'm not sure about pricing, but maybe try "Hearts and Flour" which is run by Misericordia. You get great cookies and your purchase supports Misericordia/people with disabilities

    We had cookie favors at our wedding.  Each of our tables was named after a Blackhawk's player.  The favors were cookies shaped like a hockey jersey of the player whose table the guest sat at. 

    I ordered them from Lovin' Oven Cakery in Round Lake.  They were the most reasonably priced and were absolutely delicious.  I got a lot of compliments on them!

    They also bagged them and tied the ribbon on.

    I can second that Lovin' Oven cookes are fantastic!

    If you really want to save money, you could DIY with a cookie cutter such as this: http://www.coppergifts.com/ProductCart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=906&welcome=315
    Sugar cookie dough can be made in advance and frozen.
    **edit** Didn't realize someone already suggested DIY

    We did cookie favors too. My aunt is a pastry chef and owns her own chocolate company, so she made them for me. Her contact info is in my wedding bio.
    Good luck!
