These 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.+ Wedding favours and photography by Corinna vanGerwen
