The wedding favors were one of my hardest decisions to make as a bride. With a small budget, it’s quite hard to purchase a quality gift for every guest at your wedding. However, with a little creativity and hard work, you can make your own wedding favors. Here are 10 great DIY wedding favors.

1. Music to Their Ears

Send each of your guests home with a CD filled with music from your special moments and even your wedding. There are several companies that will label the CDs for you such as beau-coup, 48 hour print, and My Own Labels. My Own Labels has templates you can use to create your own unforgettable custom-designed wedding CD label.

If you are handy with Photoshop or other design programs, you can create your own labels and print them at home with Avery Labels sold at any Staples store.

2. Local Twist

Consider where you are getting married and incorporate something from the region into your wedding favors. For instance, Martha Stewart suggests Caramel Apples from New York, Maple Sugar Candies from Vermont, Lobster Lollipops from Maine, Buckeyes from Ohio, Peach Preserves from Georgia, Roasted Peanuts from Virginia, Rock Trail Mix from Colorado and more. Checkout her Regional Wedding Favors post for more favors and DIY packaging ideas.

5. Convenient Coasters

Everyone can use coasters. When we have guests over the house, we always run out. Why not design your own coaster sets for your wedding guests? Style Me Pretty has a great DIY coaster tutorial. You could use colors and designs that match your wedding decor. They'd look great on the tables and in your guest's home!
