Absolutely not!  I hand made ornaments for our early September wedding.  The reasoning behind it was that I wanted something that fit these requirements:

  1. captured the essence of our wedding
  2. was not a random tschoske that would just collect dust
  3. would inspire guests to actually keep it

Many people collect ornaments from trips they go on, or from events they attend.  having an ornament at your wedding as your favor means that for the people who DO keep your favor, they will always remember your wedding as they hang the ornament on the tree.

Here’s a small picture…since i can’t seem to post a bigger one 🙂  It is hard to see in this picture, but at the bottom, underneath our monogram, is our wedding date.  In addition to that tag, the ornament is filled part way with sand and mini shells.

Totally love the idea– and agree that ornaments are something that when purchased with purpose are momentos that people enjoy– and it sounds like yours could actually be hung from a knob (on perhaps a china cabinet or desk) to be enjoyed year round.

i dont see anything wrong with this idea.

It fits into your theme and the way you describe it makes them sound very elegant.

i like it…i say go for it.  You could even put a tag on each one that explains that it is an ornament so that guests can remember this day every year.  that way people don’t think you just got them a random gift embellishment 🙂

I love Mrs. Corn’s idea! If it fits your wedding and your personality, I say go for it!:)

Nope, not at all. We had a very very very subtle theme of "Christmas in July" since our first date and the day he proposed were both in December. He used a silver ornament box to propose with, so we purchased that for our favors. We swapped out the cheap string it came with and added ribbon that matched our colors and a favor tag and voila (names on one side and Irish poem on the other). You should have heard the "awwww"s when the Love Story explained their significance. We still see them at people’s houses, and on their Christmas trees.
