What does cheap mean to you?
People usually get scared when they hear this word, because they associate it with low quality. And it can be like that in many cases, but it does not have to be a rule. Then comes another aspect into discussion – cheap prices have something to do with the buyer’s incomes. When talking about cheap wedding favors, it does not have to mean you are buying junks. You should rather think of ways to reduce the expenses when getting to this chapter. Because if 50 dollars do not seem too much for you, imagine how would it be to multiply the sum with the number of guests you are having. Things suddenly get a different direction.

It sure matters what you are offering. Nevertheless, no one will notice if you buy the candies, the spices, the candles or anything else you choose in bulk. This way is more affordable. And if you find something more expensive but the seller is willing to offer you discounts, it is even better. Anyway, the rule is to go for larger quantities than for individual pieces. Once again, this should not reduce the quality, especially if you find a reliable provider.If you stick for candies or cookies, you could even make the bold attempt of offering homemade sweets. Friends will not ask you to pay them for their help and the ingredients should not cost that much either.

Believe it or not, sometimes boxes and special wrapping papers could cost you more than the favor itself. What you need to do is to initiate a proper research and mainly to look for wholesalers. You can find little special boxes, tins, bags or jars to look wonderful. Ebay is a wellspring from this point of view, and you should definitely check it out. In addition, it would not hurt for you to buy them in advance, since you can find some real bargains after holidays, in what is called off-season.

Something for a lifetime
Something that can last for a lifetime, be inexpensive and also be useful… What can it be? Have you ever thought about a book? Not a novel or a poetry one, but a book with important lessons.

Simple and still impressive if you come up with tasteful dishes. A basket with cheese and wine, all sorts of chocolates, some exotic fruits or anything else you think the couple will enjoy.

Cheapest Way To Do Wedding Decoration from eddingflowers.blogliterature.org

Under such circumstances, it is easy to understand why many brides are looking for tips, tricks and ideas on how to have the cheapest decorations possible for their wedding day. What is there to be done?

Plan it carefully
Everything you do in rush has high chances to go wrong. This is why it is better to plan everything in advance. You have all the time to establish each aspect, you can even make some savings and, more important, you can do a proper research of the market. You are looking for discounts and the best time for that is right after the major holidays, when specific products were left unsold and chances are you can buy them for incredibly low prices. You do not need to have your wedding right on the lovers’ day to use some special decors with lots of red or pink, heart shaped or with angel motives and so far. Just like that, you could have an autumn wedding and take advantage of this year’s Halloween to bargain some nice decors. Use your imagination and be an active searcher through shops and stores.

Chose the location
This is the best advice you could be getting – have a backyard wedding. In this way, you have your own location for both the ceremony and the reception, so there will be no rent to pay and no transportation required for the guests. If the weather plays you tricks, you can bring everyone inside and start laughing of your odds. In addition, a backyard wedding includes plenty of flowers, trees and greeneries that will represent a natural, beautiful and free décor.

Get into action
Getting into action means to start doing by yourself the decorations you need instead of paying wedding planners to do them for you. Since you have started the preparations much sooner, you have the time to ask the help of some friends. Just buy the necessary items in bulk, preferably from wholesalers, and make your own decorations. Folds of fabrics, balloons in various shapes and colors, candles that you can work on by yourself and so far. Start cultivating the flowers you want to have, even the potted ones, dry flower petals, arrange your garden up to the tinniest corners. And use your imagination.11

Some might say that candles are not a smart choice, probably because they are a common wedding favor. Nevertheless, if you want your guests to have something that really reminds them of your beach wedding, it might be the best option. You can find them with various flavors and scents, not to mention the models and patterns. There are wax candles with different motives printed, like palm trees, ships or even the ocean’s waves and there are gel candles that can have seashells, starfishes or corals inside them, looking simply gorgeous. Imagine you can buy them for less than three dollars and they are still a pleasant favor to offer.

Here is another traditional wedding favor that you can personalize a little to give it a beach touch. You know those little pails that children carry with them all the time when they go to the beach? You can buy miniature beach pails from specialized stores and fill them with any type of candy you want. However, if you are really having a beach wedding, try to avoid chocolate candies because chances are for them to turn into hot chocolate by the end of the reception. If you want to make them even more elegant, you could wrap the candies in some white tulle or even add a bow on the handle of the pail. Shop around and you might find them at less than a dollar.
