as they seem to be the trend these days...( didnt bother myself in the last century)

the worst most self indulgent one we ever saw was a seed bag to plant to think of the couple...bridezilla?!

Oh and a parchment scroll to thank you for coming.

Did you come to my wedding Frivol?

hohoba Wed 13-May-09 17:29:45

no it was abroad years ago.

hohoba Wed 13-May-09 17:32:39

god you didnt give out seeds did you

MyDingaling Wed 13-May-09 17:36:24

Yes and most of the guests planted them. I don't think it was self indulgent at all

A bag of random sweets - my wedding wink Didn't give it any thought, couldn't care less about such things.

HairyMuff Wed 13-May-09 17:41:16

I don't think I've ever had a bridal favour at a wedding. What is one anyway? Is it like a party bag without the plastic shite?

Greensneeze Wed 13-May-09 17:42:18

Are you SURE they planted them and didn't flick 'em out of the train window on the way home? grin

A magnet with a pic of the couple on holiday. To put on our fridge. <boak>

Went to a posh wedding once, Brides Dad was loaded. We were given beautiful glass candle holder things, very modern and classy.
I got so drunk I left it in the marquee.

hohoba Wed 13-May-09 17:47:24

lol at greeny

i like jelly beans tbh

before the wedding we were asked our 3 favorite songs.. thinking it was for the dj's playlist we (me and dh) put

The time warp
Especially for you (kylie and jason)
Jake the Peg

We got a special cd with a heart on it with our special songs so we could remember the day

MmeLindt Wed 13-May-09 17:51:25

Yum to the jelly beans.

shock at the fridge magnet. That surely wins the prize.

We have had the usual, sugared almonds etc. My cousin gave everyone glass paperweights.

Ours were kitsch. We gave out gingerbread hearts with our names and the date iced on them. bkuchenherz-XXL-flower-im.jpg&imgrefurl= henherz-Lebkuchenherzen-flowers-mit-Wunschtext.php&h=300&w=350&sz=32&tbnid=0lUDoBeUq9tsuM::&tbnh=103 &tbnw=120&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dlebkuchen%2Bherzen&usg=__EzIVWGrW9MMo2TYWT1L4X8MkgQg=&ei=Y_oKSvzpJs2X_A bR5OGdCw&sa=X&oi=image_result&resnum=1&ct=image this

MmeLindt Wed 13-May-09 17:51:51

Buggered that up

HairyMuff Wed 13-May-09 17:53:08

Yes but what is a bloody party favour though you lot??

I've obviously been going to the wrong sort of weddings.....

sherby Wed 13-May-09 17:53:17

no naff wedding favours

but just got an invite to a baby shower that was full of glitter and scan pics of the baby and instructions of things to bring for fun baby themed party games

my people don't do that

Hassled Wed 13-May-09 17:54:01

We gave out sod all. The guests were expected to consider themselves lucky to get all that Sangria. The children did get giant bags of plastic tat from Hawkins, though.

Frivol / hohoba - had the bride written the corny poem on the parchment scrool herself??? Because if she had, I think you know my SIL . . .
