You shop at Costco for bulk groceries, so why wouldn't you also want to save money with wholesale wedding favors? You don't have to spend inordinate sums of money on expensive items in a local craft store or bridal bouquet. Instead, you can buy your favors wholesale and keep that money for other things like your photographer, DJ or flowers.

For some great wedding favor ideas that you can buy wholesale, keep reading.

Traditional Almonds

Tradition dictates that each wedding guest receive five sugared almonds encased in either a small box or wrapped in a pretty fabric. The almonds symbolize both the bitter sweetness nature of marriage, but also are a sign of health, happiness and fertility for the couple.

What's great about this favor is that you can pick up wholesale sugared almonds at most bulk food stores. At $10 or $15 a pound, you will have enough almonds to provide classic favors for every wedding guest. Then, pick up a few yards of tulle and ribbon at a local fabric shop and you have your packaging and wrapping. Simply, wrap five almonds in a small circle of tulle and tie with a ribbon.

Wedding Candles

Candles can be a great way to symbolize your love, inviting guests to think of the happy couple each time they light it. The great thing about candles as wholesale wedding favors is they're easily available in bulk from many retailers and are available for as low as $0.10 a candle. For a little extra, you can splurge on votive or decorative candles too.

To customize each candle, buy some pretty paper or ribbon to wrap around them. You can print your names and wedding date on each, or attach a tag with a short thank you note, expressing your appreciation to each guest for joining you on your special day.

Bottle Your Own

Bottling your own wedding favors is a great way to embrace a local product and saving money. A Georgia couple may want to hand out peach preserves while a Vermont couple might bottle their own maple syrup.

You can either purchase wholesale bottles, direct from the manufacturer, online or look for preserve products and jars at your local bulk store. For less than $0.50 a container, you get a personalized favor that reflects both you and your home.

In short, before you spend for pre-made wedding favors from any retailer, remember that you'll be buying in bulk and could save hundreds of dollars by either purchasing wholesale wedding favors or wholesale products that could be easily converted into wedding favors.
