My sea shell Christmas ornaments: favors or just gifts???

Recommended Posts

So I ordered these little shell 'charms' from Oriental Trading Company, hoping to use them as our Christmas ornament favours...

I was planning on threading a ribbon in one of our colours in the ring on the shell and attaching a monogrammed tag to it (that would be removed probably b/c it'll be too big). OR I could get the ribbon that it dangles from printed with our name and date or thank you, for example...

I know some others girls on the forum have ornament favours.

 

My questions are:1) Are these too small? (I thought they'd be bigger)

 

2) I only bought enough for each 'family', not per person and my hope was to make our favours in boxes that doubled as place cards, like this:

So should I go get more of the shells or is it weird to give every person a Christmas ornament because then there may be some families who have like 4 ornaments... am I overthinking this? LOL! Someone slap me!

 

3) Or should I just add them to the OOT bags as a 'bonus' and get some different favor to go in our little boxes on the tables?

I think those are really cute! I don't think they are too small, the size shouldn't matter too much. I would use them as favors/placecards and give them to everyone. I don't think it's weird that a family will get a bunch of them. I would add a tag with your monogram on it. I think those are a great idea, especially since you are getting married on the beach around Christmas, they kind of tie the two together.

i would probally just add the to the OOT bags, but that may be because we are not doing both favors and OOT bags. i feel like the bags are full of more usefull things than an favor of almonds ect. But if you want to do the favor thing those would be fine. Everyone is going to love your bags so much that they will think that you went way above a silly favor that most people dont ever really use. Try not to over think it and just have fun.

LOVE these! I am now thinking that since it will be close to Christmas before we get our Thank Yous done, this would be a great thing to include in our Thank You cards as well, with a charm and little hang tag that has the location and wedding date for those who were able to travel to our DW with us.

I think I feel the same... still waiting on FI to help me decide.

I think what I'll do is make one up fully as though it was going in the box (and do the box up) and then when I see the mock-up I'll probably feel better.

You know how it is when you have it in your head this great picture, but it looks kind of dinky beforehand? LOL! smile116.gif

They are so cute, I love them so much. I would put a few in your favour box- we are giving out wine charms to our guests, and they are getting four in our box.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
