I’m sure they could pass as favors but in my experience, something edible is normally preferred over anything else. Have you considered a candy or dessert/cookie buffet? I know they seem overdone in the wedding world but I think guests genuinely enjoy them.

I don’t think  the starfish  would be considered a favor. The fan certainly could be as long as you don’t have your program printed on it. I am sure your guests will appreciate the fan if it is warm.

Your guests will not be holding too many things at the same time. They will only have the fan at the ceremony. They may carry it to the reception. There they will pick up their starfish and likely place it on the table at their seat.

Having said that, I am not a big believer in favors. You certainly don’t have to have a favor at all, or anything in addition to the fan. You can if you wish.

@browneyedgrl76:  As the PP’s said, most guests prefer something that is edible or nothing at all.  I probably wouldn’t add anything else (unless it’s food).

I wrote this post 3x and for whatever reason it kept disappearing.

Anyways, I think something edible would be great as well.

What about cookies or mini pales/buckets with something edible in them?
