Not a crafty person but seriously considering purchasing a Label maker or cricut maker to label favors. Planning a destination wedding and the welcome bag is getting pricy having to purchase personalized labeled beach gifts. Favors like sun glasses and koozies, and we can expand the labels to additional items in the bag. I have seen so many cute sayings on sun screen, chap stick, nip tags and bags. Has anyone else experienced this or purchased something?

    I would not purchase a Cricut or similar unless you plan to open an Etsy shop to make your money back. Most people will leave favors behind, even if they are edible.

    I agree with Michelle. I've never seen favors as necessary

    I agree with the others about purchasing it. All the items you’ve listed are something I would have packed anyway if I was going to the beach. How about picking up the tab for a dinner? Or an excursion?

    I agree with Michelle - it may be cheaper to just buy the personalized favors rather than buy a Cricut to personalize them yourself. Check out Oriental Trading Company - they offer a lot of the items your mentioned, and you can buy them in bulk for fairly cheap!

    I wouldn't buy a Cricut unless you plan on using it a lot in the future. Like Michelle said, most of your guests will already pack those items in preparation for the trip! If you really want those items in the welcome bag, then that's fine, but I think it would be best to skip the personalized labels for every item.

    I made my favors myself. Cost me about $1.68 each. I bought candles from the dollar tree, and made the labels myself and printed them myself.

    They came out gorgeous. Where did you purchase the labels to print on?

    Thank you. I bought the template in Etsy for $4 and changed the sizing on Canva.

    My sister has a cricut, and like the others are saying, I wouldn’t recommend buying it. It works very well, but it’s super expensive. She’s had it for a year and still domestic use it that often. Party favors just aren’t that necessary, maybe if you’re having a small intimate wedding you could include them. Here’s my advice, if you absolutely have to have favors, chose one item that reflects your wedding as a whole and give that as a favor, rather than a whole bag of things. For example, I had a friend get married in September near a sunflower field. And her party favors were sunflower seeds.
