A wedding favor that offers a function for your guests means he or she will hold on to it for years. A pretty (and expensive) wedding favor looks nice on your wedding tables, but will it outlast your first few anniversaries? Probably not. Unless a wedding favor can provide a useful function for its guests, it will likely be stored away in the attic to collect dust or placed in a box because the recipient feels guilty throwing it away. Save your guests the guilt trip and opt instead for something he or she can actually use… like these wedding coaster favors! Today we’re featuring these pretty wedding coaster favors by the lovely My Little Chickadee Creations who is happy to help design a set to tie into your wedding theme perfectly. Read on to see a few of our hand-picked wedding coaster favors and find out how you can receive a special discount offer. Enjoy!

Wrapping gifts – whether it be for the holidays, birthdays, or wedding favors and gifts – is more than just patterned paper and a roll of Scotch tape.

Cigar aficionados: we have the place card idea for you! This cigar place card is one of our favorite little details from Maria & Nick’s drop-dead gorgeous wedding day (captured by Tyler Branch Photo). While it isn’t exactly a place “card” per se, the idea is to incorporate a quality hand-selected cigar at each gentleman’s place setting. If your budget is limited, include only the groomsmen, fathers of the bride and groom, and grandfathers. It is a nice gesture the leading men in your fiancee’s life can enjoy over a bonding moment or two. We also love the stripes, the ‘master’ and ‘lady’ signage, and the sprig of lavender. Delightful!

We love, love, LOVE (did we mention that we love) these typography invitations by Clever Hands Press which offer a clever way to share your love story with your guests. For example, ‘She said Yes on the Spanish steps…’, ‘First date January 18, 2008′, and ‘Pets: 2 woofs + 1 meow!” are a few interesting facts your guests would never know from ordinary invites. This example in particular was done as a bridal shower invitation but are also available as wedding invitations, save the dates, or engagement announcements. Take a peek…
