Do the Bride a Favor Discusses Prospect of Vintage Vending Machines for Weddings

Share Article

Do the Bride a Favor examines the possibilities of vintage vending machines being used at weddings to dispense favors, in the same way that modern art is now being dispensed through these same machines.

Following an article that appeared on the Intimate Weddings website, Do the Bride a Favor reached a conclusion on the viability of vintage vending machines dispensing custom wedding favors, especially artistic gifts such as mini photo books, macramé pieces, greeting cards and more. Of particular interest to Do the Bride a Favor is a line of vintage vending machine called Art-o-Mat®, former cigarette dispensers now converted to stock and sell limited edition artwork. There are 82 active Art-o-Mat® vending machines currently in use in the US, with over 400 artists contributing work worldwide. Do the Bride a favor was aided in its conclusion by the author of the Intimate Weddings article, who poses a simple question: What if the Art-o-Mat® (or a similar vending machine line) were implemented for a network of wedding planners tasked with dispensing artistic DIY wedding favors? Do the Bride a Favor envisions an area set aside at receptions where machines similar to the Art-o-Mat® could be put proudly on display to dispense items such as vending stickers with custom slogans, keepsake costume jewelry or any other number of unique vending machine refills for wedding memorabilia.

Do the Bride a Favor concludes that half the fun of vending machines for wedding guests is the simple interaction with the display itself: The favors encased behind decorative glass, the pondering of one's selection, the physicality of pulling a lever or pushing a button which instantly releases a gift. Additionally, with vending machines valuable reception time is saved as wedding planners do not have to set aside a part of the proceedings dedicated to a “grab bag” style of gift-giving. Further, guests would be able to make their own choices as to what they'll receive in the way of an Art-o-Mat® style wedding favor.

Do the Bride a Favor sees the use of classic vending machines to dispense wedding favors as an emerging trend as evidenced by the popularity of the Art-o-Mat®, a line of retired cigarette vending machines currently converted to dispense modern artwork.
