    You can’t miss something you never had. Your guests wont know about the other options you considered, and will likely think the homemade cookies are very sweet and will be touched that you went through the effort to make them all.

    $6+ a person is WAY too much to spend on favors, IMO.  Save the money and go with the cookies.  I LOVE homemade cookies.

    Honestly, I’d forgo the favors entirely.  I totally agree with PPs that the wine bottles are way too expensive, and I don’t think the cookies will be cheap, but even cheaper is not having favors 🙂

    Cookies definitely!  We did cookies at ours and it was a huge hit.  However, my cousin did the wine bottles, and the wine was NASTY.  I would have rather had a cookie! (Not that yours would have been gross, but you know what I mean!)

    I don’t think a favor is necessary at all. If I were cutting a budget that would be the first thing to go IMO!

    COOOOOOKIES!!!!!!

     

    Yeah, if you’re already having unlimited wine, no need for extra mini-bottles.  Maybe you can cut and decorate the cookies to look like wine bottles or grapes?

    @Beckster329:  Agreed.

    If you’re trying to cut costs, skip the favors all together. Nobody will miss them because a lot of people don’t care about favors.  I think homemade cookies would be a nice touch, but do you really want to bake that many cookies right before your wedding?

    Save yourself time and money and skip the whole favor thing!

    People will be happy with whatever favor you give them, whether it’s cookies or a mini wine bottle!  Mypinkshoes that’s a cute idea too!

    i would not break yourself for a favor. but what do you think about wine glasses with candies in them or just empty for something if you want to keep with the theme.

    I would be very happy with a cookie as I think most people would lol. I wouldn’t think it was cheap looking or anything like that.
