Many times, wedding favors reflect more of the feminine. Pretty colors, girly smells, and feminine aesthetic. And then we wonder why our guy doesn't pay much attention to this tradition, either on the giving or receiving end.
With the advent of the personalized wedding, however, comes an opportunity to appeal to the guys on the guestlist.
Playing cards, personalized with a capture of the couple, are perfect for a game of cards [poker for adult table, go fish for kids]. They can serve as both wedding favors and entertainment and can help your varied guest-list interact.
The image above was captured at a recent FRESH Photography wedding reception when an impromptu, multi-generation game of crib broke out. How much more fun - than even the logos shown below - to offer playing cards, personalized with professional engagement portraits on the back?
Here are some links and other chain-store names to research your personalized playing cards:
Another guy-friendly favor - and perfect for your naturally beautiful Kootenay reception - are tree favors. Ready-to-plant seedlings can be built into the wedding decor as table-centers for an eco-chic wedding and then offered as take-aways. They can be dressed up in clay pots or burlap and a coordinating ribbon with directions for planting. Trees offer a no-waste, eco-friendly, dual purpose solution for the green-minded. And you're sure to leave a lasting impression!
