Well today… I had brain wave – or whatever you call it. I thought of something….
How bout a packet of playing cards as favors with their own wrapping- our symbol and names.
I sourced our local toy store. They have 150 in stock. just the number I need.. at $2.99 AUD a pack, so thats 448.50 AUD dollars.
Bad idea? tacky? Too expensive? too much out of left field?

I don’t think its tacky, but I think its a better match for the bachelor/ette parties (especially if they involve gambling/Vegas in some way)…
Other than that I really don’t see it fitting in at the actual wedding, unless your wedding theme is somewhat Alice in Wonderland -ish.

Im going to have to disagree with cybele – because I thought of packs of playing cards for a favor as well. The thing is that Fiance and I LOVE to play cards….we get together with friends to play cards and play cards just the two of us. Its a big part of our relationship. I think playing cards are unique and fun and people will be more likely to use them than other favors that are given!
Here is a website that I found for them
I think they might be a little cheaper than what you found them for.

I think that sounds like an awesome favour. Maybe look around for prices though, because I have definitely bought playing cards WAY cheaper before.

thanks :0) for the posts girls. and the website! fantastic!
I found packets today in town for 1.50 a packet. instead of the “2.99” so it is good to get cheaper.
. I start to second guess myself sometimes! and its good to have another opinion.
I might look around for a few other things. I had toffee apples but I did an experiment with them and well it turned to be a disaster, and they didnt look like toffee apples at the end. So im having to rethink!

I think that’s such a fun and unique favor idea, one you don’t see everyday. Who couldn’t use another deck of cards to keep handy at home, for friends and family gatherings?? You could put a belly band and monogram tag around them.
Let us know how they turn out!

I LOVE the idea of playing card favors. Everyone needs a set, for drinking games, or when the power goes out, or friends are over, or even for vacation!
I think you can get them cheaper though, if 2.99 australian is close to american dollars. I wouldn’t pay more than $1 (US) each.

dollar tree unfortunately do not ship to Australia.. only the US. So I cant get them cheaper unless I get one of my friends who live over there to collect and then send over but it would be a bit of hassle. I have found a supplier who can get them for $1.25each but there has got to be somewhere cheaper. *fingers crossed*
