List Of Affordable Wedding Favors

Find the cheap wedding ideas you are looking for:

Choosing affordable wedding favors is a great way to keep your budget in check but there is no need for them to look cheap.

You want a favor that your guests will enjoy and the best way to do that is have a look at favors that are either edible or something that you can use. Keepsakes will also be treasured, especially if it is very personal to you both.

However, one word of advice is to keep an eye on the overall cost of all your favors because $4 sounds cheap until you times it by the number of guests you want to buy a favor for. 50 guests and you are then looking at $200.
