The most common mistake made when shopping for wedding favors is getting in a hurry. This is natural as you have so many details to deal with and it does not seem possible to get everything done in time. In this article we will look at shopping tips to help you slow down, get everything done, and enjoy doing it.

1. First of all do not try and do everything in one day. If you are working off a to do list you are trying to cross things off as you get them done. Shopping for wedding favors should be listed as several different things and not as one item. It is not realistic to think you can do it all in one day.

2. Do not wait until the last minute. You can not slow down if you are pressed for time. By allowing yourself more time to shop you can save yourself both time and money.

3. Establish a budget up front and stick to it as much as possible. As you budget for other wedding expenses such as food, entertainment, and where you will be holding the wedding and reception, you will want to include wedding favors into it.

This is not an incidental item and you do not want to be surprised by what you spend. Determine the number of guests you will be inviting and then budget per person to cover this cost.

4. Allow time for personalizing your wedding favors. If you are going to personalize your wedding favors in any way you have to give the company doing it time to get the order in, do your work, and then ship it to you. You can save extra rush order costs by giving everyone plenty of time to do it correctly without being in a hurry.

5. Who is going to do the wrapping. Depending on your time and budget this is an area you can save some money on if you want to do it. Because so many last minute wedding details will be popping up you do not want to feel rushed when it comes to getting your wedding favors done.

Having them wrapped for you is one detail you can make go away. If you do decide to do it yourself try and get it done several weeks before they big day.

6. Look at the total cost of wedding favors and then break out personalization and wrapping. If you decide to do any of this yourself consider the cost of buying tape, ribbons, paper, and anything else involved. Then compare it to the total cost of having it done for you to decide if the time you save is worth it to you.

These wedding favor shopping tips should help you be better organized and to stay within your budget. Just slow down, allow plenty of time, and enjoy yourself.
