That sounds SO cute! If you wanted an inexpensive, DIY way to do the stickers, you could buy those printable return address labels and simply use the corresponding template in a word processing program to put "Lucky in Love" and then maybe your names and the year underneath it or something like that in a cute font.

I literally JUST saw this in a magazine I picked up today and bookmarked it because I thought it was a cute/inexpensive idea! I just looked it up online but couldn’t find it anymore, but on the page I’m looking at this is the source: "Lucky Lotto Envelopes, 1.70 (pounds), Libra Designs. It’s in the Conde Nast Brides (Briitish version), and I’ll try to scan a photo of it later tonight for you!

Just be sure you’re at a venue that allows "gambling" — ours specifically prohibits it and lotto tickets might fall into that category. Otherwise, sounds very cute and fun!

I am doing these as well! The dollar scratchers are the perfect favor, who doesnt love them?? We aren’t packaging ours, we are just having servers carry them around on silver trays for the guests to pick one… Its one of the things I’m most excited about!!

Two of my friends did this for their weddings, and I have to say I loved it as a favor. They also included a chocolate (gheradeli or lindt) and a penny with the ticket.

I was going to have lottery tickets as my favors as well, but am now going in a completely different direction 🙂 Here was my inspiration pic though.

We are doing lotto txs as well, since our wedding has an overall "lucky in love" and gaming theme! In my opinion, guests either win something (awesome) or have the fun and hope of winning when scratching the ticket (also awesome)….either way it is way more fun than a throw-away favor, which are most favors! You either go fun or go edible on favors!

 We are going to have "lucky in love" with our names on the sticker for the closure on the back and we are also thinking about using the front of the glassine envelopes as the placecards! Double your money 🙂

We are also doing lotto tix with a 2010 penny. I love the idea because it’s cheap, fun, and people can win something! We are doing glassine envelopes and labels, just like the photo. I found some cute labels on myweddinglabels.com.

@Bean — Do they still make pennies? lol, that sounds really stupid but I’m just curious, I thought they were going to stop making them to "phase" them out. It’s a cute idea!

I reallly like this idea, and I’m thinking of doing it too, but I wouldn’t include a penny, I don’t really think that would be so cool … it might make it look cheaper …

Awwww see I think that that adding a penny would make it more special. You know, a ‘lucky penny’.

I just looked it up and the govt minted four new versions of pennies to commemorate Abe Lincoln. I guess they are going to continue to mint them then! If you can get 2010 pennies then they probably will be all shiny because they havent been in circulation. I think it’s a nice idea.
