Yes, we are a little biased for starting our list of inexpensive wedding party favors with our own retailer—but these bottle openers are simply too good to miss.

And if you don't see one amongst the dozens of pages, you can create your own. This elegant option reads "the perfect match" in a cursive font with your names and wedding date underneath. They're sold in packs of 50, making each matchbox under one dollar.

3. Heart-Shaped Coasters

PSA: Three pounds of chocolate is probably not enough to satisfy all your wedding guests. Luckily, at about 13 cents a pop, it won't cost an arm and a leg to get a few extra bags in. These milk chocolate Hershey's Kisses are outfitted with "I do" wrappers and custom stickers with your wedding details and cute clip art. Just note: Assembly is required, so you'll need to set aside time to put the stickers on.
