Our Favorite Favors
Your favors don't need to cost a fortune. “Some of the most memorable favors I have seen given away at weddings were less expensive and more creative,” says wedding planner David Tutera. “For example, slip a penny into a fancy miniature envelope and hand-write a note on the front that says, ‘We got our wish, here’s one for you.’ Or consider asking your mother or grandmother to bake one of the treats you grew up enjoying as a child. Box them individually with a gorgeous bow and give one to each guest.”
