Hello — My fiance and I are looking for ideas for Xmas ornament wedding favors. We are getting married Dec., 6, 2014. Our wedding is very rustic / vintage themed and not very holiday themed. We thought it would be a nice touch to add an ornament on each plate as a thank you. We are hoping to stay clear of the cheap glittery xmas ornaments or bells, and are trying to find more of a rustic ornament but not ones that are going to cost us a fortune. Does any one have any advice, websites or even DIY ideas for the perfect ornament wedding favor? Thank you!!

I did this for my first wedding and it was a huge hit – I bought glass hearts that were adorable and reallllly inexpensive.
I used Oriental Trading Company….shhhhh….

I would just suggest avoiding anything that actually has your wedding/names on it. I wouldn’t hang an ornament specific to someone elses wedding on my tree…
Is your wedding somewhere unique? is it a Destination Wedding at all? Maybe try and find something by a local crafter?

What about something DIY like this? You could make them as big as whatever cookie cutter size you have, and pick any stamp/stamps you like, and even paint them your wedding colors if you want.

Hello — I totally agree I do not want anything with our name or the date on it. I actually wanted something super rustic with twine and to add a little thank you tag to it that our guests can remove if so be it. I hate the thought of spending a lot of money on favors that typically end up lost in your car or the trash! I have been searching etsy, but our guest list is almost 200 people! Crazy expensive!
I will check into Orientatal trading, we order a lot of stuff for work events through theme.
Thank you both!

As always, it’s extremely difficult to chose something that 200 people would like and use. I don’t put-up a Christmas tree any more, so unless my daughter’s would use them, they’d go in the charity box, if I would even bring them home with me. I’d suggest you put them on a table, with a sign, so when the guests leave, they have the option to take one, or not. Then you won’t need to purchase 200.
