Posted on Sun, 02/28/2021 - 4:41pm

Looking to save some money on those extra details for your wedding? These DIY wedding favors and affordable bridesmaids gifts will bring joy to all your guests (and your wallet).

1. Custom Bottles or Glasses

DIY Affordable Wedding Favors & Bridesmaids Gifts - Custom Etched Glasses

Handmade sodas in a custom bottle retain that personal, homemade feel - and handmade sodas can be much more affordable and healthy than store-bought.

If you don't have the time to concoct some soda, you can craft a design to have etched onto glasses. Try mixing quotes ranging from the inspiring to the silly and let guests pick their favorite glass.

2. Handmade snacks

DIY Affordable Wedding Favors & Bridesmaids Gifts - Make your own Snacks

Build your own snack mix and seal them in custom jars, or decorate your own cake pops.

3. Custom bookmarks

Press and laminate the flowers from your wedding day (plan ahead for this one so you can order more flowers ahead of time) on patterned stock paper. 

4. Succulents in a jar - or homemade cocoa mix in a jar 

DIY Affordable Wedding Favors & Bridesmaids Gifts - Mini planters

If most of your guests live in the area and don’t have to take a plane home, you can order affordable miniature jars and succulents from the internet and assemble them yourself.

This wouldn’t be an easy gift for anyone who has to board a plane, though. In that case, fill the jars with a homemade cocoa or mocha mix.

2. Instant film camera for your Bridesmaids
