    Skipping them is the most budget friendly option.

    I'd skip them and save the money. I doubt we'll do them.

    You can totally skip. Not really necessary anymore. Only if you want, get something edible. Cookie, cake pop, macaroons, etc.

    Yeah something edible is the best option. Pepe just don't take stuff home from the wedding I've seen so it's a waste. But food/drink they'd have there probably

    Here鈥檚 something fun, but probably not super cheap, that a bride just did at Rustic Grace Estate! They created a blend of spices

    I agree with PPs on skipping the favors. If you really want favors, maybe consider edible ones like cookies!

    We are skipping the favors as well, most cost effective option. They were on the very bottom of our list, hence very easy to cut it off.

    Skip the favors! Guests usually forget them and so it really is a waste of time and money on your part.

    You can get personalized bottle opener keychains on ebay 50 for $20. Candy bar. Matchbooks. Koozies. These are just a few of the inexpensive options ive came across.

    We're not doing favors. They are a waste of money in my opinion. Guests dont look forward to them and they get left behind anyway.

    I really don't want to do them either; they're too expensive. I saw a cute idea on Zazzle that had a card saying, "In lieu of favors, we've made a donation to such-and-such charity." Then again, the cards might be just as expensive as favors would've been...

    We are doing a candy bar/table. That way it doubles as favors and decor AND we are saving money on a cake because if we already will have something sweet on hand 馃し鈥嶁檧锔

    Its T鈥檚 all about priorities though, we don鈥檛 care for cake or sweet much in general so we could care less if a cake is present or not.

    Our wedding is at a popular brewery. They鈥檙e adding their logo pint glass at $2/pp so that seemed fun and budget friendly.

    We are skipping favors altogether. It just seems like an unnecessary cost. We decided to divert that money toward our food. As a guest, I always appreciate really good food, a good liquor selection and killer music. Add those 3 together and you鈥檝e got yourself a great wedding!

    I made cute little favors for my guests that are relatively inexpensive. I spent about $1.50--$1.60 for each one. They're votive candles with ribbon and a cute little flower on each. I hot glued the ribbon and flower, then filled the box with a cut piece of white tissue wrap, then put 4 chocolate kisses on each corner of the box and a wooden message heart in the middle! I bought most of the stuff on sale! You don't have to give your guests anything I suppose, but I just like to give from my heart. Hope the pictures help explain my idea. Please don't mind the two votive candles in front of the stacked boxes---they didn't turn out as well as I had expected. I was trying to go along with my "country" theme, but the heavy burlap ribbon didn't attach very well to the glass, so I went with the skinny "leaf" look and a white ribbon flower! Hope you can come up with a great plan! God bless y'all!

    My fiance wants to do something too. He's not really asking for anything so since this is one thing he's mentioned he's wanted, I said ok. So we're on a budget too. The most popular would be like little candies or anything small and edible, chapsticks, bubbles, bottle openers, bookmarks, etc. So we'll be looking into something like that. Not necessarily ALL of them but just options. And I had made these cute little baggies online and now I'm excited to put something in them lol

    On a budget, I recommend skipping favors altogether. We were going to, but decided last minute to put some inexpensive edibles on the table and call them favors, just because we wanted some sort of little snacks on the table for the 15 or so minutes they'll be waiting around for us to enter. (We're doing all photos before the ceremony.)

    I really feel that these days, favors are something you only do at a wedding if you have a deal on something amazing that's too good to pass up, or if you have money to burn.
