What are some websites for cheap wedding favors?

by DIY wedding planner on December 8, 2011

We are getting married at a japanese garden next august and for our wedding favors we are going to give out koi food to feed the tons of koi fish they have in the pond, what are some some good sites for empty boxes we could put the food in? Thanks!

orientaltrading.com Has awesome CHEAP stuff for all occasions, I use them for EVERYTHING!!!

Check these out too, you can put a little fish imprint on the box. They don’t have to be used for cake!! and it would be enough you could line it with pretty paper to match your wedding colors!!!
Those are cute too!

i make personalised lip balm tins, but i can do the tins without lip balm in. it means these could be re-used by your guests. i can have a nice japanese theme or a koi art picture? they can you and your husbands name or the guests names individually. i do them for £1.20 each lip balm in but i could do them cheaper for you empty. My email is mrsmeow@rocketmail.com if you wanna talk about what kind of picture to have on them.

the first gal on here took the words right out of my mouth! go online to Oriental Trading Co!! also, have you tried Ebay? You can often get a bulk of items at wholesale prices. simply type in the word “lot” before the item you are searching for. Good luck, and congrats!

The tons of koi have been living in the pond without any help from you. Please try to come up with another favor. I know you don’t want to kill them! There is a good chance you will.

Oriental Trading has a lot of cheap little things. Be sure to look in sections other than the “wedding” section – you never know what you will find.
Another good site is WrapWithUs, but be careful, because the shipping can be costly.
You can try looking at TheKnot, but if you have some time, wait for a sale (they have sales pretty frequently).
Finally, check out eFavormart. I got my personalized ribbon from them and it is great!

If you have a craft store like Michael’s or AC Moore, you might want to check them out too, at least just to look. Both often have coupons in their weekly papers, and each accepts competitors coupons. You can print out coupons online as well.

Good luck! Sounds like a fun wedding!

We’re getting married in a japanese garden in 3 weeks!! :-)

I don’t know how they compare to other sites, but I got my favor boxes from http://www.beau-coup.com

Also, http://www.etsy.com has lots of great had made wedding things. You can search for what you are looking for or go to the buy section and there is a wedding category.

How about using glassine envelopes instead? I pasted a link to a website that sells them. A pack of 50 – 1 3/4 x 2 3/4 envelopes is only $4.25 (that’s a little bit bigger than a business card). You could use a hole punch to cut a couple holes in the top and tie a ribbon in your wedding colors, or add a sticker or seal as shown in the picture.
