Help! Are you doing wedding favours??

I’m totally on the fence about wedding favours. I can’t even begin to think of any ideas, nor is there anything that has caught my attention.

    I think we are going to make a donation on behalf of our families instead. My dad had a very bad car accident Oct 2016 and there were and are so many who helped and continue to help him on the days that I can't , so I wanted to honour that some how. For our engagement party we have out bottle stoppers and they were well received by everyone. Not sure what your theme is and if something like that would work. They cost us about $2.50 each. Check out KateAspen.com, lots of great ideas there!!! Good luck!

    We chose 3 charities/organizations that have helped our friends and family in some way. Guests will write their name on a plastic coin and place the coin in the jar they wish to donate to. When we send out our thank you cards we will thank them for their donation to "MS society of Canada". I have felt a lot of guilt during wedding planning, thinking of all the money we are spending on details, so this has really helped me.

    Apple shape containers from recycled plastic bottlesHelp! Are you doing wedding favours?? 1

    So many great ideas. Thank you all. My wedding is another 1.5 years away. So I have plenty of time to prepare. I don't want to spend too much on wedding favours and I don't want to pay for things which will be thrown away by the guess once they were home. I am thinking of giving Organic bath bombs and soaps cause I know how to make them. As for container, I am thinking of making cute containers from plastic bottles which I learned from youtube. My fiance only drinks Pepsi on daily basis and we have plenty of plastic bottles to recycle every week .

    We gave this crystal tealight votive holder to guests per household. If we had done per guest, it would have cost more.

    We are doing stemless wine glasses that have our names and wedding date on them. One website that is really affordable is https://www.weddingstar.ca/. We wanted something that we enjoy and that won't get thrown away, but our guests will actually get some use from.

    We're still making the final decision but leaning towards just having a cute bowl with personalized matchbooks with our names and wedding date.

    They are fairly cheap and I think people will pick them up whether it be smokers or for candles at home. It used to be an old school thing and my mom still has a bag of them from weddings she has been to.

    If people don't take them I'll sure use them at home for candles and won't be stuck with a bunch of one item I won't have a need for.
