If you are short on budget, how about using your favours as a decorative detail?
You could easily ask your venue (or planner, me!) to set up a table for you in the lobby of your venue.
The favours are assembled in a nice way and your guests help themselves, it creates a talking point too.
This will also make set up in the dinning room easier, as you won't have to individually drop off each gift to each place setting.
Just a small way your bridal godmother is helping you out!
Much love and happy planning,
