How many of you bought favours for your guests rather than DIYing, and how much did you budget per person? TIA x
Hi we are not doing favors :)
We are getting biscuits made with people's names on as they will be the place setting and favour in one and cost £1.50 each 😀
we had bubbles, sweets in little bags and packs of colouring/crafts for children
I'm doing a Ferraro Roche in a favour box and thinking about popping some nuts in the bottom too, I'm worried that it seems cheap though xxx
We made our own chocolate horse shoes
My favours are my name places so they’re only costing us £1.75 per person
We bought and wrapped small boxes of chocolates, heroes, roses etc that we got 4 for £5 from Morrison’s (the offer is on again at the moment I think) everyone ate them in the bit between dinner and the night time.
We did love hearts attached to their name tag
I bought love heart truffles from thourtons and put them in little voile bags which I had 100 for £3 off eBay. I had sweet cones made up for the children and had personalised wooden hearts attached everyone commented what a good idea xx

We are doing a cd of the major songs in our wedding with a photo on the front, a hangover survival kit and a scratchcard

My favours come with my place names
I am getting married in April bought gorgeous boxes from amazon to make at home and we are just going to order sweets from amazon and put them inside total cost about £30 and that's for 70 day guests xxx
We are doing sparklers as our wedding will be outside, this way they will use them for the photographs and not just leave them on the tables. (For children we'll do colouring books). I think 100 sparklers are around £36 so not even 50p for 100 people 😊
