    Dani, my friend has just set up as a photographer and got a load of usb sticks as promotional things. They didn't have much memory I don't think, so it would depend what size you wanted, but I think she got hers in bulk from amazon for pretty cheap. Worth a look x

    I'll be sorting my temp tattoos at some point this week. You can get tattoo transfer paper where you print it all out yourself, so we'll be having our wedding designs as tattoos for our guests... i dont expect people to take it seriously, its just a bit of fun and very "us"

    okay so the usb hunt is not going so well, the cheapest we can find is £5 per stick min order of 50, we only need 30max and £5 per usb sounds a bit silly.

    Dani - you will poss have already come across this one, and it seems that 50 is the min quantity every where but they have tons of usb's to choose from and you can get an instant quote sent to you.

    My link

    Hope it helps xx

    hahahahahaha we'll see if this lasts. I will be so impressed if it does! I know I cannot resist favours purely as I am a marketing managers dream sucker - if it looks cute and matches my imagination I HAVE to have it at all costs. I was determined not to have favours and so got sucked into it all. Good luck, may your resolve stay strong (then can you pass it on to me)

    Fair point. I can't believe hopw expensive they are when they are so easy to bake. They do taste divine though. Our local Waitrose deliver and if you don't order from them for a while then they email you a £10 off a £50 spend. Makes it too good to ignore...

    We're not doing favours, we're going to give a charity donation instead

    My h2b's brother has spinabiffida and goes to vaious groups for young people with disabilities so we're going to give them some money for a day out and add a note to explain on the placecards :(

    That's a lovely idea - even more so because it's so personal :)

    Thanks Becky :) we came up with the idea becuase they only favours I can remember from any wedding I've been to were Cancer Research pins which my friend did as her mum's in recovery, and I thought it'd be nice to do something along those lines

    Lovely idea, I really like some of the charity ideas on here. Oxfam do a charity favour now where they give you the little cards and envelopes to give out. I think BHF do them too.
