Planning a wedding can be a very stressful process, but it is also an opportunity for the couple to show off their individual taste and personality. One of the most fun ways for the couple to convey something about themselves or how they met is with the favors they give away to their guests. Listed here are some ideas for weird wedding favors that skip the usual candles and candies.

Trading Cards

Just like old-fashioned baseball cards, you can print up packs of trading cards devoted to participants in the wedding: the couple, the members of the party, family members, and anyone else who might merit inclusion. Of course, it works best if some of the cards are especially rare. For example, each groomsman might get several cards, showing up in nearly every pack. But a grandma card might be a rare find.

It’s possible to print these up yourself, and fasten them together on your own. To make things easier, you can scope out a local or online printer.

Playing cards

Honeymooning in Las Vegas? Consider printing personalized playing cards to commemorate your special day. Or, consider having the face cards be printed to represent the bride, groom, and wedding party members.

Personalized Wedding Coasters

With the popularity of shows like “Mad Men”, personalized coasters can be a retro-cool way to mark the occasion of your wedding. If you are serving a signature drink, you could include the recipe on the coaster.

Packages of crayons or colored pencils are a playful favor idea, especially for a couple who loves art. Personalize the sets with ribbons and be sure to include your wedding colors.

Locally Sourced Favors

Go Local

Give locally sourced goods as wedding favors. These can reflect the place where the wedding is held, the place where the couple met, or any other place that is significant to the wedding. Consider giving away a food or souvenir unique to the area. Don’t forget to include a tag explaining the significance to the wedding guests.

No matter what item you choose to give your guests on your wedding day, make sure it is a reflection of yourself and your partner. Be creative in your choices and bear in mind that nearly anything can be personalized.

      When I lived in New Mexico someone gave us jelly made from Hatch green chili as a housewarming gift. I certainly hope the homeless enjoyed that.
