Making Wedding Scroll FavorsI found this idea for a wedding favor in my Dad's mementos, and think it is a nice touch.
Matri-moneyHere is a way to have inexpensive but fun wedding favors, by purchasing $1 scratch-off lottery tickets. Get pennies with the year you are getting married. Place them in personalized envelopes and have someone pass them out at your party entrance!
Wedding Favor Potted PlantsOne way of giving away plants as favors is to use small potted plants on the tables as all or part of the table decorations. Tiny potted plants can also be used as place card holders.
Make CDs for Wedding FavorsCDs featuring songs from your wedding make great favors. Your guests will enjoy receiving a gift that is thoughtful and not just a store bought favor that will sit in a drawer and collect dust.
M&M's for our Wedding ReceptionMy daughter wants M&M's served at her wedding reception, but they are about $4 for one large bag! Fortunately, while I was standing there about to despair, I saw a large bag that had 18 'Fun Size' packages in them.
Picture Frame Wedding FavorsA great idea for baby or wedding shower favors. Buy small metal picture frames from your local dollar store and print out a label with a special saying for the occasion.
Give Wedding Centerpieces as FavorsHave your centerpieces double as favors. My centerpieces were little votive holders with pebbles and a piece of lucky bamboo. Just lined them up down the middle and made little tags for them that said thanks for coming and how to take care of the plant.
Wedding Cootie Catchers!Some of you may remember these from elementary school, but I used them to keep people at my reception busy! I made the template and then came up with the "fortunes". Plus they looked pretty cool scattered on the tables!
Etched Flower Vase Wedding FavorsFor the favors we are getting small vases, without a ruffle around the rim, etching each with "Love is Always in Bloom", and then putting two red roses in each. Then as a finishing touch we are adding a couple drops of blue food coloring, to make the water super bright blue.
