A Literary Wedding Favour for Writers

pen wedding favors and escort cards

Wedding Month on the Corinna Wraps blogThese wedding favours are something I put together for a good friend last summer. Both she and her now-husband are writers, so pens made for very appropriate thank you gifts — plus, hey!, a wedding favour you’ll actually use instead of just throwing out. On the other side of the cardstock sleeves holding the pens are each guest’s name and table number, so these favours also double as escort cards.

I’m sorry I don’t have a photo of the pens themselves — they were printed with the couple’s names and wedding date. The best part was that we had a chance to use the pens as soon as we sat down for dinner: at each place setting was a crossword with trivia about the bride and groom making up the clues and answers.

    The pens are a great ideas for wedding favors. I also love the cardstock sleeves you used for the pens. A friend of mine is getting married in March and she’s also giving pens for her wedding favors. Where will we be able to find those carstock sleeves for the pens? Her colors are purple and silver. Thanks for the help in advance.
