My husband and I didn't want to give out traditional favors. We also wanted something active for our guests to do during the downtime of the reception. We initially considered a photo booth, but they're much too pricey. I remembered how fun getting a caricature was at carnivals and amusement parks. Luckily, The Fine Tooners employs a number of artists, so we were able to book one artist for 2 hours for our wedding of 50 people. The price was fair considering how expensive individual caricatures normally are, but we ended up not needing the caricature artist for the entire time, but still had to pay the entire cost. Our artist was very flexible and began early as we were ahead of "schedule." All of our guests had a lot of fun! Even some of our vendors got their drawing done!
Our only complaint was that the owner told us we would receive protective sleeves for our drawings, but we did not. They would have been useful as guests were worried about ruining their drawings.
