There are various elements that create a vintage look, one of which are peals. Whilst, giving each guest a string of pearls is not a good idea. Rather, you can just use the pearl as an inspiration to create a vintage-styled wedding favor. You might want to consider the color of pearls to your wedding favors. They come in different shades from pink, cream, to champagne and ivory. If you would like to use small favor boxes, there are available boxes made from a pearl finish card, with an elegant luster like pearls.
