15 Unique DIY Wedding Favors

How do you spend less money on your wedding and more on your honeymoon? (and still make it the day from your dreams) Right now with a struggling economy, more couples are choosing to do as much of their wedding planning and preparations themselves. Do-it-yourself wedding invitations, decorations, and favors are very popular, and can be fun to design and make! DIY wedding favors also give you the opportunity to make the favors more personal and unique (like the personalized matchbooks above Source: Style me Pretty). They’re also more likely to be used instead of hidden away on a shelf or in a drawer.

    These are beautiful ideas for Wedding Favors. The only one I have seen was the Matches.i think my favorites are the CD’s,the Candles, and especially the Tea tins. You can then use the candle or tea tin over again.
