there. Not to mention, favors can be expensive. If you’re trying to save a few
dollars, a great place to start is with your favors. Here are a few simple
tips for you to consider when shopping for favors. **Tips:** Like I said,
favors can be expensive, especially when you’re buying for 150 guests. Here

* **Jars of Honey/Jam:** If you want to be super nifty, try getting small jars of local honey. Or, for a cheaper route, see if you can get large contains of regular honey and put it in several mini Mason jars. Same goes for the jam.
* **Be Practical: **Like I said, favors are expensive, so make sure you put your money to good use. For example, if you don’t want to do favors per se, you can:
* **Donate:** Donate to your favorite charity in your guest’s name. This will be practical, useful, and helpful for others. There’s no money wasted, and a good cause is supported.
By forgoing the traditional favors, you’d be surprised at how much money you
can save. Jars of cocoa mix or meaningful donations are perfect solutions for
wasted favors and money.
