It's no secret that weddings can cost a bomb. One way to save some pennies is by having cheap but chic wedding favours – if you know where to look. To help you keep your wedding budget in check, we picked out 10 wedding favours – ranging from edible yummies to daily must-haves – under $10 that are certain to wow your guests.
Honey, jam or kaya jars
Confession: When miniature jars first appeared on the wedding scene, we fell for them hook, line, and sinker. Honey and jam jars are a popular choices for rustic 'dos, but if you're looking to incorporate local flavour to your wedding, A Love Knot offers pandan kaya ones too. All jars can be customised with stickers and paired with delicate burlap bags. Prices start at $1.50 for each small hexagon or round jar, with a minimum of 100 orders. Available from A Love Knot.
