I know favors are one of those things that aren’t absolutely necessary at a wedding, but we were really excited for another opportunity to design something fun for our guests. This was one of the first ideas we came up with during wedding planning, and one of the easiest decisions to make. Keeping in mind the fact that the majority of our guests were traveling to us, we decided to do a set of postcards. And being that music and New York are both hugely important to us, we came up with the theme of “The Songs of New York”.
There were five cards in all, each featuring a lyric from a song about New York. Some songs were no-brainers, but we found this awesome Wikipedia page to help us decide on the others.
The back of each card listed the song and artist, plus room for a message so that the cards could actually be mailed. What was really fun was that we came back from our honeymoon to find that some of our guests had filled them out and mailed them to us.
