I need help choosing a wedding favor idea!
I know most people out there hate wedding favours that are printed with the names of the bride and groom, BUT, I thought this would be super cute. We are both accountants and thought it would be neat to give out small calculators as our wedding favour. Maybe it’s just me, since I’m a dorky accountant to begin with, but I love having a small calculator handy around the house.
This is what we were thinking of:
Or, should we do edible favours? We were tossing around the idea of fortune cookies with custom messages inside. I never really liked edible favours at weddings. There’s so much food and eating/drinking to begin with, why would I want to eat some more? Also, after you eat it, you no longer have a keepsake! But, obviously I’m not with the masses here, which is why I wanted some input.
If both of these ideas suck, please let me know too!

I vote fortune cookies because I pretty much always use the calculator on my phone so I would probably just throw that one away. I love fortune cookies. 🙂

I’ll always vote for edible favors, but if you’re set on the calculator idea then I would suggest not personalizing the calculator itself, rather just the tag (so guests can keep it if they want, but those who dislike personalization can still use the calculator without someone else’s name & wedding date on it).

I love edible favors other something personalized with the bride & grooms name, I almost always toss that stuff. I also use the calculator on my phone so I know I wouldn’t use a calculator favor.

I voted calculator b/c it is representative of you as a couple. I agree w PP that maybe just customize the tag and not the actual calculator. I’d stick it in my purse or in the car even though I use my phone as a calculator, it doesn’t hurt to have an extra!

The calculator is super cute but TBH (sorry), I personally wouldn’t take one or keep mine. Whenever I use a calculator, I use my phone or the one on my computer.
I would do a calculator cookie to combine both ideas.

I voted calculator because its absolutely adorable!!!
plus, i don’t eat anything with out a nutritional label, so I’d probably leave the fortune cookie behind.

I voted for the calculator because all of your guests would know what it means to you. I also agree with maybe not personalizing the calculator itself. I LOVE the calculator cookies too (I showed Fiance and he preferred the calculator over the fortune cookie, but he eyes lit up at the calculator cookie)!

I think edible is safe- everyone loves edible favours:)

I’m an engineer, so I got all giddy at the idea of a calculator. But edible favors are always a good idea. Go with calculator cookies.
