How to Save Money by Purchasing Discount Wedding Favors


You shop at Costco for bulk groceries, so why wouldn’t you also want to save money with wholesale wedding favors? You don’t have to spend inordinate sums of money on expensive items in a local craft store or bridal bouquet. Instead, you can buy your favors wholesale and keep that money for other things like your photographer, DJ or flowers.

For hot wedding favor ideas that you can do with low cost products, read on.

Sugared Almonds

Tradition dictates that each wedding guest receive five sugared almonds encased in either a small box or wrapped in a pretty fabric. The almonds symbolize both the bitter sweetness nature of marriage, but also are a sign of health, happiness and fertility for the couple.

What’s great about this favor is that you can pick up wholesale sugared almonds at most bulk food stores. At $10 or $15 a pound, you will have enough almonds to provide classic favors for every wedding guest. Then, pick up a few yards of tulle and ribbon at a local fabric shop and you have your packaging and wrapping. Simply, wrap five almonds in a small circle of tulle and tie with a ribbon.

Wedding Candles

White candles make great wholesale wedding favors because they can be purchased very inexpensively and easily customized. You should be able to find a box of 50 white candles for as little as $5.00, with most brides spending no more than $10 to $15 to furnish their entire guest list with favors. You can also order votive or fancier candles from a wholesale supplier and still save money.

Of course, you can’t just hand each guest a plain candle, but you can easily customize them all. Start by writing your name and marriage date on a small piece of paper or ribbon and then wrapping each candle with your customized band. Alternatively, you can use ribbon to attach a small note that thanks your guests for attending your marriage ceremony.

Bottle Your Own

Bottling your own wedding favors is a great way to embrace a local product and saving money. A Georgia couple may want to hand out peach preserves while a Vermont couple might bottle their own maple syrup.

A simple online search for “wholesale bottles” will yield hundreds of results which can then be narrowed down to wholesalers in your area. Purchasing a hundred wholesale bottles at less than $0.50 per bottle and filling them yourself is much cheaper than paying for pre-made favors from a local bridal retailer.

In short, before you spend for pre-made wedding favors from any retailer, remember that you’ll be buying in bulk and could save hundreds of dollars by either purchasing wholesale wedding favors or wholesale products that could be easily converted into wedding favors.

Your wedding plans are already going to cost you plenty of money. So why not take the opportunity to preserve some of those funds by doing a little of the wedding preparation work yourself and use the savings for something more enjoyable – like your honeymoon.
