Honestly, I know the consensus of favors here is basically food or nothing, but I am soo happy I ordered these matchbooks. If guests don't take them, I know I can use them myself eventually lol. They were super affordable and I love the way they came out. If you're interested in the shop, (they also have other personalized items like napkins) it's called PicturePerfectPapier on etsy.

Did you guys do favors, or are you planning on it? Share them!

    We are having a garden wedding so our favors are seed packets. I know a lot of people probably won't take them but they were relatively cheap and I loved how they fit the theme so I don't really care. They are doubling as our escort cards and we have a sign that says "please be seeded."

    Cute! I don't want to give favors simply because I don't want to do one more gd thing! But those turned out great and I wouldn't mind getting matches as a guest.

    FH's aunt does traditional Ukrainian Psyanky! This is the sketch of the eggs. I don't have a photo of the completed ones, but we thought these were such a fun unique favor!

    Wow! I've never heard of these. Will she hand draw/paint each one? That's amazing.

    Those are adorable and practical! I think they'll go over great. My thought is if you're not going food, make sure it's unique and practical.

    My favors were also different, and everyone one of them (except for those that couldn't make it) went home. Kidding, the venue wanted one of the leftovers too! So we went home with 1 favor; 2 keys for ourselves.

    They were skeleton key bottle openers with everyone's table numbers on the tag. $20 on Amazon for 50. It was also useful for people who just got beer bottles ;-)

    Thank you! I agree. If it's something people can use then I think they work. These are adorable and double use because of the table number!

    Thanks! That was my thought too. My only cavot is I'm not a fan of stuff that seems 'branded too much.' I never pull out those wine glasses, coasters, ornaments or koozies - so wouldn't spend money on giving that to other people, They're cute and great for some people. Just not my thing.

    The matches idea is great though! It's one of the few times I've seen something monogrammed and thought "I'd bring that home and use it."

    Uh-oh now I’m browsing that Etsy shop 😆 they have so many cute things & some perfectly match our theme! I was planning on doing custom bookmarks for ours. If I run out of time & inspiration to make them lol, these matches look adorable & everybody can use them.

    Makes complete sense. Thank you so much! I figured the personalization wasn't too crazy and it's not like people will display them lol.

    Lol. Sorry! I was really tempted to buy their personalized bar napkins that say drunk in love haha, but my fh told me no, because that is totally an extra item that's not needed. The matches also came super quick! I really recommend the store.

    inspoMy favors arrived! 5

    Yep! She made us 45 of them. This is what they'll all look like finished. Guests won't get the fancy stands though. Those are super pricey!
