The Budget BrideThis week on the Budget Bride series we’re talking about how DIY can help you save money on your wedding. We know that DIY can often mean trading your time for cash, but we feel the trade off is well worth it.

Guests will appreciate handmade favours from the bride and groom more than a personalized shot class or a photo frame with your wedding date engraved on it. You are essentially thanking your guests for attending and supporting you and your partner as you make the transition to husband and wife, and what better way to thank them than with something made with the care and attention only you can give?

There are many options to explore when making handmade favours. You will want to pick a project that you can complete well before the wedding for little cost. Some brides make jam, cookies or other edibles for a fraction of the cost of buying these items in stores. The benefit to these types of items is that they will be enjoyed well after your wedding and will not sit on a shelf collecting dust.

Another option is to create items that your guests will use either at your wedding celebration or past the date are functional items such as golf balls, magnets, or keychains. These type of items are best when they reflect your wedding theme and do not have your wedding date or name plastered all over them. There are many ways to DIY these items such as borrowing a button maker, looking up your local office supply store to buy some sheets of adhesive magnets, or hand-painting onto pre-exisiting items bought in bulk.

Many brides still wish to give traditional favours at a lower cost so we suggest giving small items like bags of confetti or vials of bubbles for the send-off as a favour which can be customized and personalized for your guests. The level of personalization all depends on how crafty you wish to be.
