Favors - Tacky or no?

I saw something on Etsy that I thought was cute but I’m not sure if it’s tacky. It’s a decorated envelope with the words “For richer or poorer” on the outside, and inside we would put in anywhere from 1-3 $1 lottery scratch off tickets. Is that too tacky because guests then know exactly how much money you spent on them. Thoughts?

    As cute and punny as I think that is, I don't think I'd do that for wedding favors. Maybe cute for an engagement party or bridal shower!

    I wouldn't find that tacky. $1 is fine for a gift that isn't necessary in the first place!

    I think it's totally fine - cute, punny, and a chance to win some cash!

    I love this idea for favors. Its cooler than a little knick knack in my opinion. You're already feeding them and entertaining them so I think everyone will realize you spent more than 1 on them and won't think its tacky.

    Honestly if you think it is pat of your personality then I would do it. I have 2 different types of favors for my guests to take home. Only b/c we are more likely to have fun and want folks to remember us. But I think that yours is fun as well. You will always have that person that will not like what you did. But YOU have to be comfortable with it. I have not seen anything like it and think it's fun.

    I think it’s cute and (even though I’m not a big fan of favors), this idea crossed my mind because we’re having a DW in Vegas. So I thought it fitting. Still deciding!

    I actually think that's a super cute idea - it doesn't matter how much you spend on favors, they aren't necessary in the first place!

    I think it's cute and I love that it's something different. Besides, they wouldn't be upset if they win some decent cash.

    We are doing a s'more snack mix with "smore love" on the front. We are getting married in October

    I spent less than $30 on 100 of these on amazon and I’m buying little candies that say mr. and mrs. On the wrapper to put inside the box. I saw a pack of 300 candies for $12.

    I don't think that tacky at all and neither will your guests, especially if they win.

    I think it's fun and exciting as a wedding favor. We're doing either cupcakes or a candy table!!! I think it really depends. But if I went to a wedding with scratch off tickets, I'd be totally into it.

    If it fits your theme then it’s cute. But if a formal elegant wedding, I would just skip favors unless edible. Favors aren’t really required or missed anymore.
