Three Budget-Friendly Wedding Favor Ideas

Three $1 Candy Wedding Favor Ideas | The Evermine Blog |
We’ve written about $1 dollar wedding favors before, but this time we’re basing our inspiration on good old-fashioned candy. You know, the kind you used to sneak from your grandma’s candy dish when you were a child. The best thing about this type of candy is that even though it has a timeless, well-loved flavor, it won’t break the bank, which makes it the perfect filling for your wedding favors. Especially when paired with Evermine’s packaging and personalized tags and labels with cute sayings for your guests. Scroll down for three candy-themed wedding favors we’ve put together to help inspire you on your big day:

Josephine Guicciardi is the nom de plume of our creative Evermine blogger. With romantic connections to Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Immortal Beloved” love letters, it is in keeping with the blog’s themes of love and joy. The great composer writes the famous words “ever thine, ever mine, ever ours” to a woman who remains a mystery to this day. Two of the most likely objects of his adoration are Josephine Brunsvik and Guilietta Guicciardi, and it’s from these two women that Josephine Guicciardi draws her persona.


  1. The mint to be favors- do they come with the box, candy, and labels when ordering? Are is it just the labels? Please advise.

    • Hi Angela –
      You will need to purchase and assemble the boxes, mints and labels yourself. It’s a simple and easy DIY wedding favor that guests will love!
