Wedding Favors Under a Buck

You have scrimped, saved, and spent, now you need cheap favors, here are some ideas.

1. Scratch Tickets
Price: $1 each
How to use them: Place each scratch ticket in a clear sleeve with a brand new penny. Put a little note inside telling your guests you hope they are as lucky in love as you have been.
Where to get them: At your local grocery or convenience store

2. Mini Vellum Envelopes
Price: $8.75 for a pack of 25 (that's $.35 each!)
How to use them: Fill each individual envelope with a family recipe, verse, poem, fortune, or other meaningful words. Or go another route and just fill them with candy such as my least favorite: Jordan Almonds, a traditional candy for good luck.
Where to get them: Type pictured is available at

3. Embossed Favor Bags
Price: $.50 each
How to use them: We suggest going green with these adorable pouches. Place some seeds inside to grow herbs, flowers, or vegetables and include instructions for your guests on where and how to grow their new plant.

4. Tea For Two Teabags
Price: $.85
How to use them: Everything can be customized these days including these adorable teabags. Order personalized tea bags with sweet phrases like "Love is Brewing," "The Perfect Blend" and "Tearific Couple." And be sure to also print your names and wedding date on the bag.

5. Personalized Matchbooks
Price: $.26 each
How to use them: Show your guests that you and your new spouse are a "perfect match" with personalized matchbooks. These matchbooks come in several colors and motifs and can be combined with a small candle as a charming wedding favor.
