Cheap Candy Wedding Favors
Cheap candy wedding favors? Yes, that is what many brides want, and you may, too. You want your wedding reception to be memorable, but you are trying to be financially responsible. You want to give candy wedding favors to thank guests for helping you make your day special, but you don't want to spend as much on the candy wedding favors as guests spend on the gifts they will give. You want a cheap price, but you don't want to appear too cheap.
Traditional Candy Wedding Favors
Cheap candy wedding favors can be traditional, even though you get lower prices. Jordan Almonds are a traditional wedding candy. The almonds, hidden in a candy shell, are meant to represent the sweetness and bitterness every marriage experiences. The sweet candy coating is supposed to be stronger than the bitterness of the nut inside, reminding that there should be more sweetness than bitterness in marriage. You may use all white Jordan Almonds, white with a pastel that matches your wedding color scheme, or a pastel mix.
Buy Jordan Almonds in bulk, wrap them yourself, and you will have a candy wedding favor for cheap prices. The Jelly Belly store online sells 10 pounds, about 1,100 Jordan Almonds, for $72. Since most candy wedding favors offer just 6 Jordan Almonds, 10 pounds should be enough for 180 guests, making your candy price per guest about $0.40. Tulle and ribbon for wrapping the candy will add a few cents, but you should be able to keep the price of your candy wedding favor under $.50 each.
