Could these unique wedding favors be considered elegant? I think that would be a bit of a stretch. But are they fun? Oh, my gosh, they’re a hoot! Who wouldn’t want her face on a bobblehead doll? A Web site called will make a bobblehead with anyone’s likeness.

The Up Side of Custom Bobbleheads

Will your wedding favors generate some serious buzz? I think so! Some of it, from traditionalists and folks without a sense of humor, might be negative, but I think most of it will be positive. The concept is unique, out-of-the-box and, though it’s not a practical favor, I think your guests may find some clever uses for it—a paperweight comes to mind, as does a stress-reliever (bouncing the bobbleheads with a finger until your mind goes numb.)

What Else for Weddings?

Besides bobblehead wedding favors, the company also makes custom bobblehead cake toppers. You really have to be a fun-loving couple to plant one of these on top of your cake! Here are two of their many styles:

Creating your custom bobblehead starts with uploading three photos of you and three photos of your groom (front view, profile and 3/4 profile.) You then pick your hair color (including a “bald” option,) skin color and eye color for each. There are also a few options for an additional charge, like a voice recorder and your names on the base. That’s all there is to it.

The Down Side…

Not surprisingly, wild, wacky, ultra-personalized whimsy will put a bigger dent in your budget than garden-variety wedding favors. The minimum order is 100 favors for $1200 (not including any optional services,) and the cake toppers start at $189.

If you’ve ever had the desire to be a bobblehead doll (I sure have!) and want to thank your guests with a wedding favor unlike any other, your wedding is the perfect opportunity to debut your bobbling noggin!
