A summer party was thrown for a special great grandmother’s 85th birthday. Four generations attended!

And because she is known both for her wise heart and enjoyment of tea, this was provided as a favor:


Heart-Shaped Tea Infuser

Four teabags were tucked alongside- one each from her favorite journeys: England, France, Hawai’i, and Portland, OR (where she was born.)

A box of tea bags, even if organic and artisanal, is relatively affordable and then, down right inexpensive when split amongst the guests. Pick those with the most beautiful packets!

Helping hands and love makes the prep enjoyable, faster, easier. Stumble

Tips for Choosing the Right Wedding Favors

Posted on October 15th, 2012 by kevindflynn in Wedding Favors

Wedding FavorsWedding favors are thank you gifts from the bride and groom to those who attended their nuptials. Historically, only wealthy families gave favors in the form of sugar cubes.

Today, the choices available for wedding favors are endless and often can be overwhelming for the happy couple-to-be. Criteria for choosing your favors can fall into many categories — theme, season, color, location, and personal memento — and all have their merits. By examining each, you will be able to choose a favor that is perfect for your event.

Theme: The favor you choose may be inspired by your wedding theme. The addition of a themed-favor will enhance the ambiance of your event. For example, if you’re sporting a beach theme, you could give personalized sandals or a picture frame with seashells on it. For a winter wonderland wedding, incorporate snowflakes or snowmen. For instance, you could give snow globes with your names and the date of the wedding on them.

You also can incorporate your wedding favors as a coordinating piece of your wedding décor. Wedding favors can be used as part of your table-setting decorations. For example, picture frames can be used as place cards, or plants can be part of the centerpiece.

Season: The time of year you hold your wedding can also spur some favor ideas and enhance the mood of the day. If your wedding is near Valentine’s Day, you could give heart shaped cookie cutters or measuring spoons. If you are getting married in the spring, wrap bulbs or seed packets in beautiful ribbon. An event in the fall could include harvest scented candles. In addition, for a holiday-time event, you could give out Christmas ornaments.

Color: Is there a signature color that already coordinates your flowers or bridesmaid dresses? If so, you could choose to work with the established colors. For a classic black-and-white color scheme, you could fill personalized champagne flutes with foil-wrapped candies to highlight the elegance.

On the other hand, you could offer a contrasting shade. If you are using a neutral palate for a beach wedding, you could provide a pop of turquoise or green with a small vase with a votive candle inside.

Location: The location of your wedding can provide ideas as well. If your reception is at a vineyard, you could hand out miniature bottles of wine with customized labels. If you are having a destination wedding, give your guests an elegant airplane luggage tag with a chrome finish.

Personal Memento: Favors could also reflect your own interests and personality. For instance, you can tell guests how “lucky” you feel to be marrying your best friend by giving lottery tickets. For couples who want to show their love of nature could give “green” favors made from recycled materials. Finally, the bride and groom can honor their guests by simply making a donation to a cause in which they believe strongly; simply announce this via an inexpensive table cards or an announcement during the reception.

There is no right or wrong way to choose your wedding favors, regardless of whichever criteria you choose to use. In the end, pick an item that will help you and your guests remember your special day. Stumble

Looking for top quality, but cheap wedding favors?

Posted on September 4th, 2012 by kevindflynn in cheap wedding favors

Double Heart KeychainMost consumers believe that they get what they pay for. When you pay a lot, you get a lot. When you only pay a little, expectations are much lower. We mention that we have cheap wedding favors for under $1.00 and new customer believes they’re going to get cheap trinkets. Ironically, our inbox is full each month with responses from those who were pleasantly surprised by what we can do for those on a short budget. Cheap does not mean poor quality. It means inexpensive and affordable. In these economic times, those words are a healing elixir to those who are struggling financially.

Mint tins, bottle openers, key chains, fans, and collectible place card holders can all be purchased from Truly Wedding Favors for under $1.00. Move up into the two or three-dollar range and you’ll find almost our entire collection of specialty wedding favors is available for the asking. It’s true. You don’t have to remortgage your house to afford the wedding favors you probably forgot about until the last minute. That’s another reason we keep our prices low. No one should have a wedding without wedding favors but so many folks often forget to order them till its almost too late.

Planning a wedding is a lot easier when you’re not restricted by theme and tradition. Many younger couples these days go with a small ceremony and limited guest lists. It’s not a lack of friends that leads them to this point, its economic hardship. Just think, for a group of forty guests you can provide wedding favors for under $50. All who attend will cherish these small reminders of your special day. It’s a nice touch and often a lost tradition in the younger generation. Be different and go with the time-honored custom of thanking your guests with a small token of gratitude.

Concepts like true love and loyal friendship don’t come with a price tag attached. There are some who believe that not having the ability to spend a lot means that you should not spend at all. Here at Truly Wedding Favors, we believe that the thought does count, regardless of the price. You can spend $5, $10, even $20 per guest if you want to when you purchase wedding favors, but there will always be someone who isn’t satisfied. Spend what you can afford. You’ll be surprised at what we can offer for that price. Stumble

How to Get Unique Wedding Favors That Won’t Break the Bank

Posted on April 17th, 2012 by Elsa in Wedding Favors

Unique Calla Lily Candle The date is set, the planning is underway, but now it is time to find those unique wedding favors for your guests. The tradition of handing out wedding favors is one that shows appreciation for not only your guests coming to the wedding, but coming to support you and your spouse uniting with a set of vows with them as the witness. Finding unique wedding favors that show your appreciation and are still considered cheap wedding favors isn’t always easy, but the good news is, it’s not impossible either.

Get an Accurate Guest Count

There is nothing more embarrassing than finding the perfect cheap wedding favors and finding out you fall short at the reception. Make sure to get an accurate guest count for your wedding and then bump it by at least twenty just to be safe. Sometimes, unfortunately, wedding guests do not always RSVP, which means you will need to create a buffer for those that show up unannounced. More » Stumble

Save Big Money On Your Wedding Entertainment

Posted on January 19th, 2011 by April Knobles in Wedding Reception, Weddings

imagesWhen I first started planning my wedding, I thought that having a live DJ was a must. The DJ is the one who gets the party started and guides the reception right? How can a wedding run without someone to play the music, announce the new couple, cue the music for the first dance, and tell everyone what is happening? However, when I started to do some research on getting a DJ, I came to the realization that having a live DJ is quite expensive. The average fees for having a live DJ for 4 hours was between $1,500 and $2,000. Since we were having a wedding on a tight budget, I realized that if I wanted to have a DJ at my wedding I would have to make major sacrifices to the decorations, wedding favors, and refreshments at my reception. Faced with having to make a decision between a live DJ and being able to afford a beautiful reception that I would be proud of, I decided to explore some other options.

A friend of mine told me about a very formal wedding that she atteneded recently where the couple gave store-bought cookies as wedding favors … and just two cookies to each guest.

White Open Heart Wedding BellsWhen selecting wedding bell favors, you have many options to choose from. These White Open Heart Wedding Bells are cheap and functional too.
