My sister is getting married, and I am helping to plan her wedding, she is getting married next fall. We were thinking about wedding favors, and one of the things her and her fiancee love to do together is carve pumpkins, they are REALLY good at it. So I suggested that for her guests her and her fiancee carve those styrofoam fake pumpkins for each of their guests that they can use to decorate their houses with. I actually just did one and it looks pretty cool. They are having a pretty small wedding, and since they are getting married next year, they will have a lot of time to do them and they won’t go bad, because they are styrofoam! What do you think? Would you like that as a favor?
Heres the one I did, it obviously wouldn’t be a scary design:(sorry, I don’t know how to flip it)

I think that looks cool. Is the wedding before or after Halloween? Either way i’ve never seen something like that at a wedding.

I am torn.. I voted no at first, however it is a fun idea and if all of your guests are local and they can take them home, it is a fun and original idea! And it could be a fun display if you stick LED candles in them towards the end of the night as people are leaving…

I think it’s cool, as long as no one will get offended by them! (Might be biased — ILs [but not DH] are witnesses, so they are SUPER AGAINST anything halloween)
I agree with the LEDs, that would be so freakin cool. I’d love it (as long as it was a non-scary carving )

I’m on a fence about this…I’m voting “no” but could totally see how this could be a fun thing!

I’d love it! Plus if they make them it’ll mean more to the guests – Maybe they could do different designs to match the guest personalities.

Very cute and different, but I’m voting no because I never like favors that people have to “do” something with, i.e., find a place for in their home. Picture frames, measuring cups, statues, etc. I like food favors so we’re doing caramel apples for fall!

I think it’s cute because it’s something they do together. But honestly I’ll likely just throw it out because it’ll be a big dust collector.

I LOVE The idea- every wedding I go to has similar favors and I absolutely love when couples go outside the box and do something that really shows off their personalities!

@sorrycharlie: My family are witnesses too and we’re getting married on October 29!! It’s super hard to not get very halloweenie, but I would have LOVED to give our pumpkins as favors.
I actually think it would be better if you just gave out uncarved pumpkins. Then people can do what they like with them – carve them, make pumpkin seeds, paint them, etc.

I love Halloween, but I vote no. One fun idea they could maybe do is homemade candles in Autumn colors and scents? I know people are on the fence about candles, but I make them every fall for friends and family and they are always a huge hit, especially when I put things like candy corn and leaves in them. People use them too, and ask for more!
