Crafty Wedding Favors Within a Budget

Things have gotten very creative when it comes to the popular wedding favors of today. No longer are they fine polished silver bells that you have to worry about cleaning every few months so they don’t tarnish. With many bride and groom’s having to worry about everything else that comes with a wedding, especially the major expenses of a venue and caterers, it’s nice to spend a little less on favors while still giving it a unique touch. Here are some examples of wedding favors that can add a whimsical and personal appeal to your wedding.

Holographic glasses

Sure, these glasses are a little silly. But they are also fun and can only cause giggles for your wedding guests. When peering through these one-of-a-kind glasses, all points of light (candles, street lamps, headlights) turn into hearts. Plus, what’s so great about these is you can either keep them or throw them away. They are just there to entertain the guests and show them that you are thinking of them.
