Personalized gifts not only show your gratitude to your guests for coming to your wedding, but they also add a unique touch to your special day. Personalized wedding favors reflect your character and style, and your family and friends will remember them long after your wedding has passed. Giving away personalized items on your wedding day, however, does not have to be expensive. You just need proper planning in order to find that cheap but unique wedding gift for your guests.

Votive Candle Holders

Votive candle holders come in various colors, shapes and designs. Choose one that matches your wedding theme or motif. Have your names and the date of your wedding printed on them. If the store does not provide the candles, you can buy them cheap in bulk. If you have time, make the gift more personal by putting around the holders a string of inexpensive beads that you have crafted yourself.

Picture Frames

Put a photo of you and your spouse in a small picture frame. Have your names and the date of your wedding printed or engraved on the frame. You can opt to put your names and wedding date on the photos by using image-editing software; print them at home or at your local photo store, and insert them in a plain picture frame. Instead of using a photo, you can insert in the picture frame a printed thank-you card with the names of you and your spouse, or the printed name of your guest with his assigned table number.

Flower Seeds

Flower seeds are a great way for your guests to remember your wedding. They will think of your wedding while they are planting the seeds and when the flowers bloom. Choose flowers that bloom in colors that match your wedding motif. Put each packet of seeds in a box and tie around it a personalized ribbon with your names and the date of your wedding printed on it.

Shot Glasses

Shot glasses are both functional and decorative. Personalize your gift by having your names and the date of your wedding printed on them. Make the gift more interesting by throwing in candies wrapped in tulle or organza.
