Anyone who knows me, knows I’m all about the party favors, or “my bags” as Emily [Burning River Bride] calls them. I think I even had my favors picked out before my venue, photographer and wedding coordinator. For some reason, finding and discovering fun favor ideas is so relaxing to me, almost therapeutic. Well, the further I get into wedding planning, the elaborate, expensive favors I once thought I couldn’t live without are proving to be way out of my financial grasp. So instead of scrapping the favor idea [and the hours and hours of time I spent searching them] I’m finding fun ways to make them more versatile, that way, getting a bit more bang for the buck. Check out a few of my favorite favors that “moonlight” as something else!
Favor boxes that can be decor on the gifts/sweets table and double as a place for take-home goodies
Personalized lolly pops that are perfect for a sweets/candy bar!
Edible and perfect for the buffet station or dinner table
Champagne Flutes [or wine glasses] that serve as guest’s stemware!
Photo frame that works as a place holder, and a nice little frame for guests to take home and use!
Little monogramed candles that work as cute table decor, especially for evening, outdoor weddings!

Flip flops [save money by not personalizing] that guests can wear on the dance floor!

A mini ceramic pot plus seeds can serve as a fun bundled place holder!
[DIY hint: Get labels with the guest names printed and place them around the pots. Place the seeds inside for a fun extra!]
