Don't Break the Budget - Cheap and Cheerful Bomboniere Ideas
If you're on the lookout for cheap wedding favours to buy for your wedding, there are some amazing options available to you. If you're a DIY-er, you can achieve marvels with very little cash, but for those who aren't so crafty, there still are some great options available that won't break the budget. Here are some great examples of ready-to-give cheap wedding bomboniere that won't break the bank.
Make it Work Overtime: Bomboniere that Doubles as a Decoration or Placecard
Glass photo coasters that double as place card holders, place card holders that can also be sent home with guests as miniature photo holders, miniature photo frames that double as seating cards, paper fans that cool guests and double as a ceremony decoration, and miniature vases that become a table decoration as well as a beautiful bomboniere, are all great examples of how to make your wedding favors work harder for you. Some effective and super-cheap options include the Capture My Heart Photo Coasters in a set of two (split them to make these even more cost effective), Memories by the Dozen set of 12 miniature photo frames that double as place card holders, the simply stunning Shells by the Sea authentic shell placecard holders for a set of 6.
DIY that Isn't Really DIY
If you can't craft like Martha, you can still play in the same ballpark if you buy a semi-customisable favour, like a set of CD covers which you can then personalise with a sticker and ribbon, or one of the amazing easy-to-assemble bomboniere boxes in so many shapes, styles and colours it might hurt to make a decision! You can then fill these beauties with jelly beans, bomboniere almonds, your favourite lollies or other treats and make it your own without breaking the budget or a nail! The black and ivory flourish bomboniere boxes with ribbon are a great price and very fashionable; or the enchanted carriage favour boxes are a fun way to say thank you and each once filled with a budget-conscious candy.
Relive Your Youth for Budget Busting Brilliance
One of the cheapest but most effective ways to say thanks to guests is with a young-at-heart inspired favour. Try the very popular candy buffet (or lolly table) filled with delicious sweets for guests to help themselves to with cheap-as-chips asian takeaway boxes as the containers; or give popcorn to your guests in fun popcorn containers for a popping great treat that won't break the budget; and a few cheap lollypops from the $2 shop look really fun in a galvanised tin pail to give to guests. Takeaway boxes in a set of 6 ; you can't beat the authentic popcorn boxes in a set of eight and the tin pails in so many fun colours pack a great punch as a favour on the cheap.
