    @praline13:  LOL I think it’s an adorable idea…. but I’m imagining few of the men would take their favors and I don’t know how much it costs, but that seems like a waste. Maybe CocaCola in glass bottles?

    Honestly, the nail polish isn’t bad but I don’t know about the pomade. It’s a cute idea, but for a wedding favour? I mean, you know your crowd so if you think it is something they’ll like then why not.

    I would LOVE to get red nail polish as a favor! I would actually take it home!

    @praline13:  I would like that but I might be jealous of my FI getting booze while I got nail polish haha. I think that it would pricey but a good favour.

    What about inexpensive beach blankets? 1 per couple would suffice.

    I think you are going to get a lot of guys looking at the pomade and going “WTF?”  And it would be absolutly no good to my bald FI. 

    I think you could look for something a bit more approchable for the guys.

    While it fits your theme I don’t know how much use people will get out of them.  I hate getting favors I just throw away or stash in a drawer because I feel bad the couple wasted money on them.

    Edible favors always seem to please a crowd.  What about something like this…

     

    Glass soda bottles, double as favors and escort cards.

     

     Or you could do little bags of or a buffet of vintage candies….

    @praline13:  What about just an old-school plastic comb? Or some candy cigarettes? Hmm… I’m still thinking. There’s gotta be something amazing…

    @praline13:  Ha! Well don’t I look stupid. I think that those are great favours and match your theme perfectly.

    Nail polish, hell yes! Pomade…meh… might not appeal to all male guests. Another poster suggested vintage bottle openers. Love that idea!
