– Not something that people will throw away
– not edible (we have soooo much food at our wedding or I would totally do chocolate or something)
I just saw a thread for doing the photobooth pictures as the souvenir. We’re having a photobooth, so is that my solution??
Any other ideas aside from the pictures?

I did luggage tags. People snatched the extra ones and used them immediately. I was surprised at how many people told me how much they liked them. They were round stainless with a leather tag. I had them fabricated (kinda took a risk overseas), but they turned out fantastic! They were presented in these nice black boxes and my ring bearer’s mom said we had to decorate them, so I bought ribbon and she and my mom tied bows on all of them. I’ve even seen my friends actually use them too!

@iswimibikeirun: Thank you! That sounds like a great idea! Do you have any pictures? Where did you get them made?

We are also doing a photobooth – – but then decided to add a donation as part of our “favor” – my SO is a type 1 diabetic and my grandfather has alzheimers – so we decided to do a donation in lieu of favors to both of those organizations and print up a card to put on everyone’s place setting!
I’m like you – people leave their favors behind and money goes to waste – so the photobooth will be their “take home” item.

@Stammie16: Here’s a photo. How many do you need? If you pm me, I can give you more details. We liked the fact that they were useful for our guests–most of whom were out of town or travel regularly.

I just went to a wedding where we got salt and pepper shakers like these:
We each just got one, and then we filled it with candy from the candy buffet. I thought it was cute and I definitely took mine home, ate my candy, and put salt in it! You wouldn’t have to do candy, though. It was just a nice addition, but they would stand alone.

I’m doing wine glasses… We figured they could use the glasses at the wedding and then take them home. It really helped we cut the cost of renting wineglasses too, and the glasses we bought were under $2.00 from IKEA- and they have a pretty curve to the tops. We are getting married at a vineyard so it went with the theme too but yeah… i also just loved the idea.
