Adopt a Lobster Wedding Favours

It’s the year of the Adopt a Lobster Wedding Favours.  Last year we launched our Adopt a Lobster scheme as ethical and fun wedding favours, particularly for those that are taking a more eco-friendly approach to their special day.  We have had a really good uptake and in recent months we have had 2 lobster themed weddings believe it or not!  Check out these beautiful cake decorations that sat on Phil & Ally Whitehead’s cake.

The idea is that you can adopt a lobster for each of your guests and you get to name a lobster after each guest, which can be quite amusing if there are some old nick names.  We had one wedding party with some very amusing lobster names; Thirty & Flirty, Pontypandy, Baby Machine, Marathon Man and Half Marathon Man, Denis the Menace, Pasty Crimper, Desperate Dan (just to name a few).  You can imagine the noises when the wedding party sat down to eat and opened up their certificate!

I had a call this morning from a couple that are coming back to Cornwall to get married next year.  They are both working in the Caribbean on dive boats.  Their table decorations are going to be lobster pots with flowers sticking out of them!  I think our Adopt a Lobster wedding favours will be the perfect finishing touch!
