Two Keys to Getting Wedding Favors for Less: Design Them Yourself and Buy in Bulk

Whether you have a limited wedding reception budget, you are looking to save money on the reception, or you simply have invited a lot of people to your wedding, if you are looking for wedding favors for cheap, you might feel limited in what you can do. The good news is that you do not need to feel limited in your wedding favor options. There are two great ways you can save money on wedding favors, design them yourself or buy in bulk.
Design Them Yourself
If you are a creative person, you may enjoy designing your wedding favors yourself. They can be special and unique, created to fit you and your fiancé perfectly. They can be designed and created at home. Of course, if you are planning on handling the whole design process on your own or with limited help from a few friends or family members, it is important to realize that this could be a large time commitment. If there are other details of the wedding that need handled, you may want to consider designing the favors and allowing someone else to handle the actual creation of your favors.
Buy in Bulk
Buying in bulk is generally going to save you money, no matter what you are buying. When purchasing wedding favors, you likely need to purchase the items in large quantities. Purchasing a few of the items in one place and a few more in another place is likely going to cost you more money than it would cost to purchase the items in bulk. Of course, when buying in bulk, it is important to decide exactly how much you need to buy. Purchasing too many wedding favors may leave you with a bag full of extras.

At Sweet Wrappings, we combine the best of both options. You get the fun of designing the candy wrappers yourself. Then you send your design to us, where we will make your wedding favor dream into a reality, allowing you to avoid the stress of wondering if you can complete your wedding favors on your own in time. At Sweet Wrappings, you buy your wedding favors in bulk, specifying exactly how many you need, so you will not end up with a bunch of extras. The more you buy, the less they cost per item. We offer Hershey's, Belgian chocolates, and Hershey's miniatures. Contact us to pick the option that fits you best.

Three Tips for Picking Unique Bridal Shower Favors

Whether she is your best friend, a relative, a coworker, or someone else who has trusted you to plan her bridal shower, you likely want the experience to be special for her. Part of making sure the event is special and memorable might be creating unique bridal shower favors. Our candy bar wrappers allow you to provide that unique touch to your bridal shower favors. There are at least three questions you can ask yourself to create the perfect unique wrapper design.
How Well Do the Guests Know the Bride?
The bride-to-be's closest friends and relatives will likely be invited to the event. While these people know her well, if there are other guests, such as the groom's sisters, who do not know the bride well, it could be fun to provide shower favors that allow the guests to get to know the bride better. With our personalized candy bar wrappers, you could include information about the bride's favorite movie, sports, hobbies, or other things.
What is Special to the Couple?
Every couple has at least one or two things that are special to them. Maybe they both love the same sports team. Perhaps the place they met is special to them, or they both love a specific singer. For our personalized chocolate bar wrappers, you could include a short blurb about what makes this couple unique or what the is important to the couple. You could also include a picture. Maybe the couple is standing in the field where the proposal happened, or the couple is surfing on the beach where they first met.
Does She Want to Help?
Some brides just want to trust the details of the bridal shower to someone else while others want to be part of the planning process. Unless the shower is a surprise, you may want to ask her if she wants to help or at least ask if there is something she wants or really does not want on the favors..

If you think personalized candy bar wrappers are the perfect unique bridal shower favors for your friend, contact us. We offer personalized Hershey bars, Belgian Bars, and Hershey miniatures. All three are offered with the chocolate bars included, or you can order just the wrappers for either the Hershey bars or miniatures.

Planning a Big Birthday Celebration? Personalized Candy is the Perfect Touch

When someone you love has a special birthday coming up, your thoughts turn to celebrations. Whether you're planning a surprise party for your best friend's 30th or a family gathering to commemorate your grandmother turning 80, one way to be sure guests remember the occasion is to give out personalized candy.
Imagine your guest of honor's smile when she sees her picture with a birthday greeting printed beautifully on a candy bar. This perfect favor is easy to create and really shows that you care enough to truly celebrate the person that you love. It's a one of a kind party favor that is as special and unique as the person you are celebrating.
Parties are expensive, and one way to cut down costs is to use party supplies that can do double duty. Use your candy wrappers as a sweet party decoration by placing one at each setting to dress up your tables, by scattering them throughout a buffet or by placing them in pretty, clear containers around the party location.
After the party, your personalized candy favors have one more job to do. When guests leave the celebration and enjoy the candy, they can keep the wrapper as a memory of the special birthday party they attended. Guests may put the wrapper on the refrigerator or cork board, or they may put it away in a memory book to be enjoyed years later.
Consider framing one of the wrappers as a unique gift for the guest of honor.

Birthdays are a celebration of someone who makes the world a sweeter place. We can help you make that day extra special with personalized favors. Contact us at Sweet Wrappings to get started.
