Finding Affordable Packaging for your Wedding Favors

Finding Affordable Packaging for your Wedding Favors

With all the costs associated with a wedding, it is no surprise that when it comes to wedding favors, many brides often forget that the packaging needs to be included in the favors budget.

Now more than ever couples are looking to cut costs and pull money from wherever possible. This applies to your wedding favors too. Whilst you may find the right favors at the right price, finding the right packaging at the right price can be a different matter entirely!

Take a look at some of the packaging choices available to you:

Plain card boxes Specialist favor boxes Tins Bottles and jars Bags Cellophane wrappers Plastic boxes Tulle nets Novelty containers – miniature pails, bird nests, plant pots etc.

There are probably a few more that I haven’t added to the list, but you get the general idea! Wedding favor stores will often carry a good range of packaging for the favors you buy from them. If possible try to buy your packaging from the same store as your favors as you may qualify for a discount on the total cost.

The internet has opened a world of choice for wedding favors and packaging.  Specialist wedding favor boxes are probably the most expensive choice. They come in a wide variety of designs and styles, but are mostly only suited to confectionary favors and very small items. However, if you research the market well you will probably be able to buy them in large quantities for rock bottom prices. If you need a lot, then try to pick them up wholesale, failing that, check out sites like Ebay for cheap favor boxes.

For a modern look to your favor packaging, consider tins or bottle or jars. These are available on the internet in bulk quantities and you will probably be able to purchase them wholesale too.

Florists stores will often have a range of novelty items that would suit wedding favors.  Items like miniature metal pails, woven birds nests, clear plastic boxes and miniature terracotta plant pots can all be found at online florist stores & again look for wholesalers for the best prices.

It is always a good idea to have bought your favors before the packaging, to avoid any size issues! The best advice is to shop around, look for discounts for quantity & seek out wholesalers for the best prices Also make sure your packaging is suitable for your choice of favor, it matches your wedding style or theme and that if needed it can be easily customized to suit your wedding.

A lot of brides will consider purchasing a new gown for the wedding. Every bride would like to be the most beautiful bride in the word on the wedding day.
