Cheap Wedding Favors

Looking for a relatively cheap and inexpensive wedding favor?  You want something that is low cost without sacrificing quality.  After all, who wants to look cheap at their own wedding?  I’ve got some wedding favors for you. There are a few really great places for cost conscious couples to find cheap wedding favors online.  The first is a place called Wrap with us.  This place has a lot of tastefully low priced favors that could fit just about any wedding theme.  You will notice that they like to add a lot of little ribbons to their gifts.  I recommend them.  You can even buy the ribbon there if you want to make the favors yourself.  They are the first place you should think about when shopping for favors whether it is for the reception or bridal shower. Another great place and the place that we chose to get our wedding favors from is a place called Discount dollar-signMugs.  They are by far the least expensive place to buy personalized glassware like shot glasses in bulk.  We ordered shot glasses for our wedding reception tables.  They handled everything perfectly and it cost a lot less than many of our alternative choices.  They even offer express shipping for you last minute shoppers. Quality favors do not cost a fortune.  In fact the vast majority of wedding favor choices cost under a dollar per gift.  Some are priced as low as 25 cents with a huge selection falling right around the $0.50 – $0.60 range.  Depending on how many people will attend your reception, the total amount of money you will need to spend on favors is going to be pretty small compared to the costs involved with the rest of the wedding.
