Honestly, I’m a little confused by it.. is being lucky part of your wedding? (like the lucky in love themes) 

I feel like as a guest I wouldn’t really understand it. sorry Embarassed

Im kinda with jillieb You might have to add a tag to make your guests understand it or you can write “LUCKY IN LOVE” on the scrapbooking paper before you glue it on?

I think it is a cute concept, but have you tried to burn one? My worry would be that the penny would get too hot and catch the paper on fire.

@star_shine: Glad i can help! I only got the idea from jillieb post but it would be very easy to do and could be really cute!

maybe you could use the votives that come in a glass holder (you can get them at michael for $7 for 16, maybe cheaper online) instead?  Most people burn tea lights in a larger holder and will not be able to see your hard work.  I suggest the votives so people can see the paper/penny while they are burning the candle, plus it burns longer.

I agree that its cute but people may not be able to actually use it, unless its for decorative purposes only

I think it is a good idea—I think the “Lucky Penny” part is cute but maybe find another way to offer it to your guests? I also agree a little note with it explaining the lucky or the favor.

Good luck and keep working on it!

You don’t have to do favors. If you want to do something that you already have on hand, you could make cookies. We added two different types of cookies to our candy bar and they were a hit. I made chocolate chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter cookies. I made twice as many as we needed and they were all gone by the end of the night. I was also able to make them a couple of months in advance and freeze them. They were still soft and chewy for the wedding.

If you don’t have money for favors, don’t do them and don’t worry about them! They’re are totally not necessary and most guests won’t mind. I think you had a good idea in using things you already had on hand to create favors and might stilll be able to work with that, but this idea itself is probably not the best way to go.
