Your guests may have traveled, or not, but regardless, they spent their time coming to support YOU on your wedding day!  Giving your guests a little memento to say ‘thank you’ is a fantastic idea.  But do you have to break the bank doing so?  Not at all!  Below we’ve got some suggestions for fun guest trinkets, but also a brilliant ways to entertain your guests…

 

BUTTONS!

OK, so if you’re a science geek like my hubby and I, you might want this button at your wedding — but chances are you’ll want something a little more guest-oriented — but you get the idea. 🙂  Creating simple, title-only buttons can spark some great conversations…such as ‘Mom’ or even ‘MOB’ or ‘MOG’ (for Mother of the Bride/Groom), ‘Grandma’, ‘MOH” (for Maid of Honor)…for your guests, simply ‘Guest’ might turn into a funny conversation piece, or if you feel up to the challenge (or for a small wedding), come up with personalized buttons with a trait of each of your guests.  ‘Party Animal,’ ‘Jokes told here’ or ‘Needs Tissues’ for someone who cries at everything…you get the idea…make it fun!  For a plated meal with place cards, add the buttons to each place for instant conversation when the guests arrive at your reception!

 

GIVE YOUR GUESTS AN ASSIGNMENT!

What on earth, you say?!  Give them something to do while they wait for you at the reception — and they’ll love it! I read this idea in Utterly Engaged Magazine, the couple that used this are so brilliant:  wrap a few inexpensive notebooks purchased from the discount store in a cover, or buy some inexpensive journals from a bookstore. Designate a different question on each book, asking the guests to give their best wedding advice, share a special memory of you both, or answer questions such as ‘Where do you see us in 10 years?’  Place a different notebook at each table, and have your DJ encourage guests to pass them around and/or visit each table to write in them all!  Instant memorabilia!

 

OUTDOOR WEDDING? GIVE THEM SOMETHING TO WRAP UP IN!

These pictures come from Molly & Bo’s Teton Valley wedding, by the fabulous Katy Gray of Jackson.  Molly and Bo had an intimate destination wedding, and provided these little warming gifts to their guests.  While this certainly could get expensive quickly, be smart! Shop specials, or if someone is a crafter in your family, see if they might help you by making some gifts for you!

 

(I also have to add that I adore these handwritten tags — absolutely fantastic!)

Here is another fun idea from Molly & Bo’s wedding — what a fun idea!  Bells to ring when you kiss — and notice another darling handwriten tag! Love this!

 

LUCKY GUESTS!

As I’ve blogged a few times, my friend Elena’s wedding this past summer included an incredibly fun, unique guest favor — lottery tickets!  (And we won $37! Woo hoo!) 🙂 This is a super fun, relatively inexpensive idea!
