Favors of Fun!

Personally I think favors are a huge part of a wedding and should definitely be thought about. These people are spending their money to give you a gift that you registered and asked for, the least you could do is give them a great wedding favor.

Here are my dos and don'ts of wedding favors... and some ideas as well!

DO give your guests something they will use.
Example: candy they can eat while listening to speeches at your wedding...
  Monogram suckers from Oriental Trading

DO give all of your favors a personal touch.

DO tell your guests thank you.

DO think outside the box.

DON'T give your guests something they'll never use again.
DON'T waste a big chunk of your budget on wedding favors. 
In my opinion this is how much you should spend:
  $10,000 or less budget- $1.00 per person on favors
$15,000 budget- $1.50 per person on favors
$20,000 or more budget- up to $2.75 per person on favors

DON'T give your guests gender biased gifts.
Example: how many men will use a chap stick? or a candle?

DON'T skip favors all together... like I said these people are giving you a gift and celebrating with you, they deserve something too.
