At our wedding this May, we asked our our guests to choose and customize their own LEGO minifigures to take home as wedding favors. On top of being very popular, it turned into a fun activity for our guests at the reception/party!
We bought over 100 LEGO minifigures from private sellers on Marktplaats (a Dutch version of eBay) and I also added some figures from my own collection that I could bear to part with.
We put them out on green LEGO base plates, and added some bowls with spare parts labeled “heads,” “hair and hats,” “legs,” and “accessories,” for easy customizing.
Since I'm a huge LEGO-nerd, I had built a LEGO City Hall with us and our guests in it, and photographed it to go with our save-the-dates which we sent out via email. We decided that this picture would work perfectly for the favors as well and turned it into thank-you-cards.
We got LEGO magnets, which are made to hold minifigures and can be used as fridge magnets.
We attached them to the cards, so that guests could pick up a card, place their minifigure on the magnet, and take it home.
It was really cool to see everyone play with LEGO at our wedding, especially when they excitedly came to show us their creations!
