    Hi!

    I am out of ideas... I am looking for something to make for our destination wedding in Vegas to give as favours to our guests.

    I've done some browsing and am going to do some forum searching here for unique ideas... but does anyone have any inspiration or suggestions? Lots of beach-themed things, but with it being Vegas, a beach isn't really as fitting. I'd like to make up little goodie bags for our guests, and I'm very crafty, so the making part isn't an issue!

    Whatever we end up doing, I plan to wrap up the goodie bags/items and make poker chip tags to attach that will have our names and wedding date plus "thank you." I just don't know what the actual favour items will be yet! haha :) This is a very laid back wedding, we are simply getting married in a Vegas chapel and doing an informal dinner afterwards somewhere, and we'd like to give the favours out then to thank everyone for coming.

    Anyway, if you've come across any unique DIY ideas that would be fitting for a Vegas theme or have inspiration for me, I'd love to hear it! Thanks so much for your help :)

      I went to a vegas style wedding a few years back and they used playing card decks that they had gotten printed up special...I just don't remember what was on the front but I bet you could come up with something cute! maybe the "Welcom to Las Vegas" sign..you know the famous one....

        You could put them in organza bags with a pair of dice or chocolate coin candy...that would be really cute!

          Oh yeah for centerpieces..they used huge martini glasses sitting on mirrors planted with real ivy and they stuck those plastic pink flamingo drink stirers in them and scattered coin candy on the mirrors with votives and poker chips....it was really cute!

            Thanks, sumrdream :)

            I am not sure we have time to get a deck of cards printed, but I like the idea! I also like the idea of little organza bags with chocolate coins and poker chips and such :)

              I know I'm way late on this but what about scratch off lottery cards with a penny in glassine envelopes and close it with a sticker with your names, wedding date and location and a little wording in the middle like : Lucky in Love or Lucked Up or something creative like that!

              that is a really cute idea! if you search on here, some of us have had round stickers made at Zazzle custom t-shirts and more, create or shop for unique designs shipped in 24 hours, with our logo's, and some have even made their own using avery templates.

                What an awesome idea, Monique! Thank you! We may just have to do this one -- I love it!

                And thanks for the site recommendation for stickers and such, DougsGirl! :)

                Appreciate it much <3
