an00n1:  just do a photobooth with unlimited pics your guests could print off. thats what we did. It cost us about 900$ but it was great as our guests loved it and had a memory of the day that they took home and it was of themselves and friends. One copy can go in your guestbook and another they take home. No one needs useless garbage favors. and I am a huge hockey fan but I agree … this is not the place for self promotion…. it would be tacky as hell

an00n1:  Maybe do pucks, but instead of autographing them print out stickers to put on the pucks with something like:

7825b94833184161477ea0b66dd92721

(shown with the rings for a photo op, not my photo!)

 

It still incorporates the hockey theme, free pucks, and you can DIY the stickers for cheap!

an00n1:  ehh, not totally sold on the autographed pucks (unless it was an autograph from a Montreal Canadiens player- then I would be all for it, hahaha!). As other posters have mentioned, since most of your guests I assume will already know him, perhaps having the wedding date on the pucks instead could work, or you can never go wrong with edible favors (everybody like treats!)

Dear OP  I just hope  you and your interests  are going to be fully represented  in your own wedding  that’s all. All I see is his stuff.

Course I’m not the best person to run  this by because sport  means nothing  to me , but just saying ….

Don’t do favours. Such a waste of money! The only ones I loved was a friend who’s mum stayed up baking shortbread hearts for everyone. Was sweet, tasty and not expensive.

we didn’t have any at ours and no-one said anything. I’d rather serve better food or nicer booze than give something that most people leave behind.

Does he play for the blackhawks?! Cuz I think that would be kool right after their Stanley Cup win to get get!

I do see how many guests wouldn’t like it tho. It kind of seems like, “oh here, I guess we will give you that since we had it lying around” 

I think if you were worried about it being boastful, don’t sign them. If people want them signed they could ask at the end of the night.

For our wedding we gave out homemade chocolates as wedding favours. It was inexpensive as we made it ourselves. But we had to spend some money to pack these chocolates so that it will look expensive. We got a pretty good deal from clearpak. They provide creative packaging solutions. We packed our chocolates in clear plastic boxes.Everyone was impressed.
