I haven’t, and honestly want to caution you against this.  I wear very nice (expensive) sunglasses, and would not take a pair of sunglasses as a favor.  You may end up with quite a few left over.

I am also planning on doing this, especially since about 80% of our 400 guests are in their 20s and wear those kind of glasses alll the time, and its a June wedding. I would also like to know where a good place to get them is. If you can’t find cheap ones maybe get them only for the wedding party, that’s my alternative.

I too would caution you against this idea.  I have an impossible time finding sunglasses that fit my small head and look halfway decent on me so I’m extremely picky about my shades.  In all likelihood, I would not use such a favor and I’d hate to see you waste your money.

I would caution against this because generally speaking, the cheap pairs of sunglasses are nothing more than tinted plastic that don’t protect your eyes against the harmful things.

So I think they would be cute as a prop for your wedding party for photos, but I don’t think they would be good favors.

I think that is a neat idea! I came across it yesterday and I work as an optician and I am thinking of doing it! Most of the time people doesn’t really keep or use the favors, I mean it’s only a keepsake but maybe later down the road when they come across your sunglasses wedding favor (because they were looking for something else) they’ll remember how cool the wedding was because it’ll remind them when they wore it and not some candy in a bag or mini chairs or something like that!

I have recently bought some sunglasses for my up coming wedding from http://www.sunglassville.com, I did shop around a lot. I ended up going with this company. They sent me a sample within days and they had the best price, product and customer service. Best part I like about them that,  I didn’t have to put my credit card up front with this company. Payment was only required after I saw the digital proof, which they sent me within hours. Ask for Kristine, great person to deal with.
