Thank You Cards
After reading about favors that can be eaten, here are some simpler favors which could also be customized by personal choice. Thank you notes are inexpensive that can be made hilarious by simply adding a funny caption, or joke to card cover and placed on the plates. Printing paper notes is one of the easiest idea for a personalized favor. Even though they are not very useful to the guests, they can be a refreshing piece of entertainment for them while dining. If you are on a tight wedding budget and want to have attractive favors, this would be an excellent option.
Personalized candles in attractive holders are one of the most popular choices for favors. They are easily available and make attractive showpieces, that can be used by guests. However, I would suggest not personalizing the candle holders with couple pictures, but some funny illustrations. These could be ceramic imitations of the funny bride and groom, lovebirds, kissing fish, funny one liners, etc. These candles and holders can be displayed on shelves or in bathrooms, because of their lovely designs.
Personalized Luggage Tags
Luggage tags are required by almost everyone while traveling and personalizing them with funny images or text could be a great idea. You would surely find a number of places around your city, where these luggage tags are customized as per your choice. You can have your names and wedding date printed on these tags with pictures like hearts, flowers, lovebirds, bride and groom cartoons, etc. in wedding colors. You could also have funny phrases such as (not to offend anyone's feelings)...
- Always get married early in the morning. That way, if it doesn't work out, you haven't wasted a whole day ~ Mickey Rooney
- Love is blind but marriage is an eye-opener.
- I don't worry about terrorism. I was married for two years. ~ Sam Kinison
Another very popularly used wedding favor idea is card holders, which are also the easiest to find and you get a variety of designs in them. You will find a variety of shapes in these card holders, such as; frog bride and groom, handbags, miniatures of perfume bottles, motor bikes, flip-flops, sailboats, etc., which look both colorful and funny. There are various shapes and designs of card holders, which have seasonal themes as well, in case you want to use the season colors for your wedding.
Along with these, there are a few more ideas where you could use creative designs to personalize them. These are;
- Bottle Stoppers
- "Run Away Groom and Bride" Fridge Magnets
- Bride and Groom Ceramic Salt and Pepper Shakers
- Mint Tins
