we are struggling with ideas for our favours. my mom thought that lottery tickets would be a good idea. the majority of our guests will be coming accross to spain from the uk for the big day; so i was considering asking my Bridesmaid or Best Man to bring the numbers accross with her. then we could make a bit of a thing of it by asking the dj to maybe announce the numbers during the evening……what do you all think?
good or bad idea?
thanks for your input ladies x

I’ve never seen lottery tickets where the numbers are announced — but I did attend a wedding a few years ago where there was a scratch ticket at every place setting and everyone got their own scratch ticket. I hadn’t ever seen it done and thought it was cute – plus I won $30!

The idea of a scratchoff is sitting better with me than a lotto tickets. If you can find a scratchoff ticket that matches your theme it will definitely we easier to pull off.

I voted no, but I love the scratch off idea.

ok….so no announcing the numbers!! Thanks for the feedback on that!
I like the scratch card idea too…..tho we don’t have those here….maybe i could get them bought from england instead of the lotto numbers.
Thanks ladies xxxx

Yeah – I agree with the PPs. Scratch-offs would be fun if you can get them, but I wouldn’t announce lotto numbers.

Maybe check your local laws on redeeming lotto/scratch ticket winnings. I’d hate to be a guest who couldn’t claim the money due to citizenship/residency issues.

I voted yes before reading. I assumed you meant scratch-off tickets.

I voted yes also assuming you meant scratch off tickets.

We were going to do these for our wedding, but since many of the guests will be coming from overseas and wouldn’t be able to claim their prizes, we decided not to!
I love the phrase “lucky in love”, very cute!

@banana_anna: Aww, those scratch-offs make me wish Nevada had a lottery!

I voted yes, because I thought that you meant a scratch off, which would be a good idea…I don’t think the other idea would be so good.
