I spent countless hours getting to know my fiance while sneaking out of work to the local starbucks, we travel all over an always snuggle up at coffee shops before heading out to meeting (mainly starbucks) and yes, he proposed in Starbucks. So for me I was smiling ear to ear when he told me that he wrote the bucks and they gave us a hundred of those mini sample cups and chocolate covered espresso beans for our wedding favors.
..But everyone I mention it to curls their nose up at idea of having a "company" logo on the cup. I think they are soo cute with the mini logo and drink selection on the back. Is it really that tacky?
Our plan is to wrap the beans with a mini biscotti popping out and a label that says "Richie and Colleen + date "love is brewing"

That is super cute!
Ignore everyone – Starbucks has meaning for you as a couple – it’s not about the brand, it’s about how your love came to be.
I say go with it!

I say go with it too!
1. it has special meaning for both you and your fiance (it is YOUR day)
2. I think it so adorable, and so will many of your guests when they SEE it. Remember many people don’t have good imaginations. make sure it is set up propery at a table with pictures of you and your FH at various Starbucks throughout the years.

I admit, I’m not one to go to Starbucks, but in your case, it’s really cute.
Plus, Starbucks treats their employees well, unlike lots of other places.

Aw, it’s not about peoples’ snobbery in this case- it’s about you as a couple! I think your story is incredibly sweet- you could maybe type it up and put it in a pretty frame next to the favors, then no one will turn their noses up.

I absolutely LOVE this idea for your favor. I think it’s so sweet how it ties in with the story of you and your FI. People who know you will understand what it means so ignore all those "nose curls" 😀

I agree with everyone–what an AWESOME idea for a favor! I am jealous we don’t have a tie to Starbucks because that is seriously such a cute idea. Go with it, especially since it has meaning for you and your groom. Show us some pics when its closer and they’re assembled!

Go for it! It’s not "just" a company logo, it’s a major story of how you guys got together! I think your close friends and family will really think it’s touching!

Actually, I’d be thrilled at getting something that is "name brand". I think it’s a cute idea.

Hey, I’d take any kind of free favor and run with it. Product placement is everywhere so I don’t see it as a negative. Plus, for you and him, it also has a piece in your story. Use them!

I think its sweet… I would def add the biscotti. And then maybe at the favor table you could have a little sign that tells the story of your relationship and engagement. It will help guests get to know you better as a couple!

Wow. That is SUPER cute. I can see that some guest would find it odd, but, it sounds like a great idea that fits you two. As soon as your guests realize that your story, no one will think its odd anymore. They’d wish that they had as a cute a story as you two have. =)
So do it. I almost want to say to just make your wedding a coffee themed wedding – with table names from coffeebean names, maybe a candy bar with the candy in burlap bags instead of jars – there’s so much potential!
"Love is Brewing"… uber cute! I hope you guys have some engagement pictures at this Starbucks. =)
