Have extra wedding favors and don’t know what to do with them? Are you thinking about buying favors in bulk but are worried you’ll have too many left over? Here are some ideas for what to do with the extras.
Many brides worry about what they’ll do with those extra wedding favors, especially when they are considering buying in bulk. Wedding favors can be pricey when you are buying a large quantity, so it makes sense that you’d want to make sure you’re getting the most out of your investment and that your money is going to good use.
Even if you’re spending more on a large quantity of wedding favors, though, an advantage to that is the option to buy in bulk. Buying wedding favors in bulk allows you to pay less per item than you would if you bought a few small, individual items.
Whether you’re about to buy a large quantity or you’ve already been married and have a box full of leftover favors sitting in your closet, we have a few ideas for how to get rid of them and still make sure your money wasn’t wasted.
Send the leftovers to those who didn’t attend the wedding—Whether you send them to relatives across the globe who couldn’t attend the wedding or to guests you couldn’t invite, using your leftover wedding favours to include those who weren’t at the event is a great way to show everyone you were thinking of them. You can also do this with coworkers at your place of employment. Chances are you’ve invited at least one coworker to your wedding, but it’s nearly impossible to invite them all, so giving them the extras is a nice way to include them.
Use the leftovers to create keepsakes or for decoration—Another easy way to put your extra wedding favor to good use is to turn them into keepsakes for yourself and your family or for decor for the home. For example, you can use leftover candles for the guest bedroom or around the tub, or you can create a wedding keepsake box and use them to accent or fill it to make it even more memorable.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way. You can always find uses for your leftover wedding favors.
