Here in Maryland, brides and grooms enamored with the Chesapeake Bay lifestyle have a sentimental wedding favor at their fingertips—the personalized crab mallet—something we've been making for over 10 years. Southern-minded couples are learning about an equally nostalgic and culturally-specific favor they can call their own—custom oyster shuckers. The days of settling for run-of-the-mill, ubiquitous wedding favors that get tossed in the junk drawer, or worse, left on the dinner table after a reception, are over. We know how important budgets are when it comes to wedding planning and we've made our custom shuckers with that in mind.
Custom oyster knives come in three styles but the decoration is infinite. Our two styles of wood-handled shuckers, the Frenchman and New Haven, feature an engraved handle that is traditional and harkens back to a simpler era. Both of these classic knives, with their wood and stainless steel construction, will compliment any place setting, color palette, and theme. Tastefully muted tones of raffia ribbon look great tied around our wooden knives. Little bottles of Tabasco Sauce paired with our knives is a fun and memorable presentation. Couples that have a raw bar at their wedding use our knives to tie their whole reception together.
I ordered these oyster knives as a favor for an oyster roast bridal shower. I was very impressed with the service, design, and responsiveness of Bay Imprint. They knives turned out absolutely fantastic. The quality is great and held up to lots of oyster shucking at the party (and will for years to come)! Lots of guests commented and wanted to know where I got them from. Highly recommend! Imogen
Parents of brides and grooms choose to use our customized knives as rehearsal oyster roast favors which we commonly customize with an individual name or role (think: Best Man, Father of the Bride, Father of the Groom). Our knives also make for a clever save-the-date which will surely entice any guest.
The engraved oyster knives for the engaged couple was the perfect hostess gift at our oyster roast wedding party. Beth
In addition to our engraved knives, our third and newest knife is our PearlPro Professional style knife that we decorate in full-color. With full color decoration, wedding planners and couples are putting their wedding logo on each knife handle. By using full-color, your invitations can match your table setting which can now match the imprint on the handle of these knives. When color plays a big part in your wedding, we'll make sure your favor does not fall short. We'd love to see your wedding logo and see how we can help outfit your guests with a new utensil they'll be sure to keep around until your Pearl Anniversary (that's 30 years in case you were wondering)!
