It doesn’t matter how big the guest list is when you’re making your own favors. You’ll still want to start really early with the planning and processing.

And it’s a good idea to enlist the help of your family and bridesmaids to pitch in too, especially at the assembly stage.

The idea is to really cheap wedding favors that don’t cheap. And since there’s no price tag on the time, effort and love you put into making them, they’ll actually be worth more than any type of favors you’d buy at an online boutique or the most expensive department store.

I’ve seen some really pretty ideas over the years that guests just loved. For instance, I helped my cousin design and make homemade matchbooks that she folded and stapled a large cellophane-wrapped mint inside of. The outside had the couple’s names and the wedding date and it was designed to match the wedding color theme.
