Wedding Budget Tip #22:

Make simple, edible wedding favors.

Something that constantly comes up in conversations on items to cut from your wedding budget is wedding favors.

To some, they might seem unnecessary — an extra added expense. There are so many wedding favors that are silly little trinkets with couples' names and wedding dates…. let's be honest, most of those little tchotchkes end up in the trash, and are therefore a waste of money.

That's why we *love* edible wedding favors as an option for affordable favors for your wedding.

Anything from candy to homemade baked goods to freezer jam can make delightful wedding favors that don't have to cost a ton of money, and give your guests an extra something special as thanks for celebrating your big day with you!
