Old-School Favors

Vintagey gifts from a bygone era tie-in perfectly with traditional wedding decor. At weddings, heirloom gifts are a popular choice for the wedding couple. But, you could also hand out some charming antique gifts as wedding favors for your guests. These don’t have to be expensive items. Things like vintage postcards, cocktail stirrers and china dessert plates can all serve a dual purpose as a gift/table decoration your guests will love.
