I am getting married in England where the tradition, and the size of the venue, dictate that we eat all of the courses of the sit down meal first, followed by dancing (rather than dancing between courses). So unless they get up to smoke (or use the bathroom) my guests will be at the table, and with their table-mates, for approximately 2 hours (2.5 hours with speeches).<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
So, in addition to an edible favor (cutely packaged chocolates, to double as escort cards), I want to place a second sort-of-favour at their seats in the form of a “Chinese take out” shaped box filled with fun things to use/play with between courses. It’s a sort-of-favor because it is not truly intended to be brought home as a memento.
So far I’m planning to include a fortune cookie, temporary tattoos and a trivial pursuit card in each box-o-fun. I’d like to include maybe two more things in the box. Any suggestions?
PS I should mention while the meal is a sit down dinner, our wedding style is not formal. The sort-of-favors will not be sharing space with fine china settings!
