We are having a destination wedding in Lake Tahoe, and I would like the wedding favors to have a connection with the area. What have you done (or are planning to do) for wedding favors? I would like something useful, and no food. I was thinking Lake Tahoe photo printed playing cards, but would love some more ideas. TY!

Congrats on your enagement! I live and was married at Lake Tahoe and we did a few things as favors. I made bubble magnets with various images of lake tahoe that pinned placecards on to a vintage refridgerator door. We had a photobooth as well, which tied in with the magnets, so guests took those pictures with them as well. Reno Photobooth ompany is great for that. I made extra magnets so people could take a few and they varied from vintage to modern to We see the magnet/photobooth strip ensemble on our guests fridge's still to this day. I love it! You can see our wedding here with the favors pictured and a link to how to make the magnets:

We did Lake Tahoe Koozies on water bottles for people as they left. We love having all the leftover ones and seeing them at our friends' houses. Good luck!

I did a small box with Jordan Almonds. Not very tahoe specific.

Congrats! At our wedding we did we did CA wildflowers and Missouri wildflowers mixed in a seed packet (my husband is from Missouri, I'm from CA). The packet we had printed with a saying but you can put a picture of Tahoe if you want on it.

We had a lot of people from out of town so we did out of town bags with CA cheese/crackers and a bottle of wine. We did a piece of Sees candy (from CA) and everyone got a Keep Tahoe Blue sticker. If you go the a visitors center in Tahoe they have all kinds of stuff, the stickers were free :) The seeds were my favorite because people keep telling me their flowers are blooming and they will always think of us!
