Can you believe that the average amount spent on wedding favours is around £2001? It’s quite a sum to add to the amount couples are no doubt already spending on their big day. But it is a nice gesture to give something back to those who have come to support you – so how can you honour this tradition, without breaking the bank?
Traditionally, sugared almonds or a slice of cake were given to guests – and there’s no need to deviate from this budget friendly option. But it doesn’t take much to upgrade this option to something a little bit special. Pop a few sugared almonds in a beautiful organza gift bag and you can suddenly have colour co-ordinated table decorations and gifts for the guests for as little as 31p each*.
Budget friendly wedding favour ideas
The simple act of popping a gift, however cost conscious it needs to be, into a beautiful gift bag instantly increases its allure. We have known brides to fill either large or small organza gift bags with items as inexpensive and varied as:
– Love heart sweets – you can get these personalised if you do want to add a special touch
– Lottery tickets – or, and we love this idea – a raffle ticket for a prize that will be drawn during the speeches!
– A lapel pin bought in aid of a favourite charity
– A specially printed joke or puzzle – a great ice-breaker for the table, and of course with a little thought these can be personalised too for that extra special touch
– Packets of seeds for your favourite flowers
– Little home-made biscuit – easily personalisable, and a great ‘job’ to hand over to a family member
– Foil wrapped chocolates
– Shaped marshmallows
– Home-made truffles
– Beautifully fragranced soaps
– Even a hand-made bath bomb filled with confetti
All wrapped up
Of course, some of these favour ideas may need to be wrapped in a little tissue paper, but tissue paper can be equally inexpensive if you look to a wholesaler such as Morplan. In fact, we found that by avoiding traditional ready-made wedding favour suppliers, and instead buying favour items in bulk from ordinary retail wholesalers you could easily save 40% of the cost of each favour **.
Choices for wrapping up any occasion
The organza bags offered by Morplan are a great option whether you are looking for wedding favour bags, jewellery bags, and accessory bags or as stocking fillers. The Morplan sheer organza bags offer excellent value, come in 12 different colours ranging from traditional ivory to baby blue as well as red (great for Christmas stocking fillers) and black (for more formal events) and have beautiful matching satin drawstrings to secure the contents. There are two sizes to choose from and as Morplan hold these in stock you could have them delivered tomorrow…. So what are you waiting for? Better get baking!
*Based on 100 guests, Morplan small organza bags, each containing around 7-8 sugared almonds bought from a sweet wholesale supplier.
** Ready filled organza bag containing five sugared almonds have been found to cost around 50p each on wedding favour sites. According to research by wedding magazine You & Your Wedding an average of £200 is spent on wedding favours
