    Oops, yes I should probably add that this website does not condone that kind of behaviour...!! :unsure:

    Edible may be the way forward - that way everyone is happy :D

    Ohhh. This is a challenge!
    CDs would have been an obvoius choice, but would have been ALOT of work.
    How about giving each guest a raffle ticket, and having a few music related prizes? (Not sure if that's a bit tacky)

    I love your table number idea :D

    Favours I really don't know what to suggest, I like the cookie or vodka ideas, not sure how to make vodka musical though! I think whatever you choose you won't please everyone so I wouldn't worry about that too much.

    Along the cookie line I can offer this suggestion which you could alter to your colour scheme

    Yeah found plectrums online and I love that idea but Richard doesn't!! To be honest I might just buy a load of personalised ones and scatter them on the tables with the vintage music hearts too!! People can either take them or leave them!

    Love the cookie idea - although I'm not the best at baking!

    Also - I'm trying to source a load of vintage music so we can use it as the background of our table plan so we could end up covering the guest book with it too!!

    And yes, CDs would be far too much work! Especially as I'd want to personalise them with labels!!

    I think scattering them on the tables with the vintage music hearts would look fab ;)

    And lo and behold I've gone and ordered 100 plectrums for only £45 including delivery from a wonderful litte place in Norway! Woo hoo!! Thanks girls for encouraging me to follow my dream of plectrums on the tables!! Richard also knows this and is now in agreement!

    Here is what they will look like!!

    I confess I've spent a lot of time trying to find favour ideas for you Salma, but everything I come up with is quite expensive.
    I won't be beaten though!

    Oooh thank you I really appreciate it!! I'm leaning more towards the easy option of NOTHING at present - especially as I've just bought the guitar picks!! But any suggestions - greatly appreciated!!

    Loving the plectrums, very clever and individual.

    Wanted to put up pics of our favours but they're on hubbys phone and he's working tonight! Will try and do it tomorrow.

    I can't remember off of the top of my head, I thought confetti but just looked and they are not there! Someone else on the site had ordered them for their wedding too.....my memory is rubbish....it was a teacher and the whole theme was teaching related...........aaarrgh, stupid medication! I'll look through my online receipts and try and let you know. xxx

    I was hoping to avoid doing these but everyone keeps asking. As most people on here know that the OH and i are big on tattoos and my 1/2 sleeves and back piece will be clearly visable so we might get some temporary tattoos printed out with the design of out tattoo style invite
