What about putting the coasters on the guest book table and the cookies on the plate or napkin at the place setting?

are you getting married @ a church or in the hall?  since it was a 40-minute drive, we gave bottled water and wrapped cookies to every guest after the service. i think it was one of the things they loved most – and it was one of the only things i didnd’t DIY (cookies were costco, we just wrapped them)!! 

or, can you put the cookie on the coaster and just wrap them in one bag?  you could have the backs to each other so you can see the monogram on one side and the love coaster on the other side.  then when it’s on the table you could have them alternate the side facing up.

Could you wrap the coaster and the cookie together and place them on the plate?

If you have a guest book attendant, then they can also hand out favors in person (either the cookie or the coaster).

I’d do the cookie and coaster together. Maybe with a cute little note- about here’s a cookie for you and a coaster for your milk…..(ok so that wording isn’t so cute- but most people have a tall cold glass of milk with their cookies, so you do have some continuity in your favor package)

What we need is Miss Lovebug to break out a cute, quirky saying about "coasters" and "cookies" to tie it all in.

I love the cookies and milk angle – what good thinking!  I also think that if you put the coasters in a big basket by the guest book (near the door?) people would know to take one on their way out.  I have also been to plenty of weddings where the bubbles, birdseed, or wrapped pieces of grooms’ cake are placed in baskets and passed near the end of the reception by the attendants or young guests (great job for kids, occupies them and makes them feel important).

i like the idea of putting the cookies out right after your ceremony (if it’s in a church or something).  i actually handed out chinese take out boxes filled with creampuffs after my ceremony.

it’s also cute to just stack the cookies and the coasters together as one favor "package".

how about using the coasters as place cards on an escort table and then having the cookies on the tables at each place setting? you could put the names and table numbers on the coasters to guide each guest to their seat.

You’re right, the coaster just doesn’t "go" with the theme anymore.  I would try your luck on Ebay, the Bee classifieds, or the Knot.  Even if you don’t get every penny back for what you paid, it’s something.  I really love the cookie and milk idea.  I got those coasters at wedding I attended last year and they are sitting in my cabinet unused.  They don’t really go with my decor or table setting, so I imagine I will give them away.

how about wrapping the 2 together and giving them out after the ceremony with a note "A little thank you for joining in our celebration as you coast to the reception"  or if you give them away at the end of the night – "Love Dont Coast a Thing" (the song by J.Lo)

i know im terrible at this kind of stuff – but i do like the idea of them together…

i like the idea of using them as place cards too!

but if you want some money back and if you dont really like the coasters anymore -sell them on ebay – im sure another bride-to-be would love to take them off your hands!
