I am having a damask themed wedding in July, and I had originally planned on giving out personalized damask tins filled with mints as my favors. I recently found personalized damask print chapstick that I think is adorable. I am just not sure if chapstick is an appropriate wedding favor. What do you guys think? Had you rather have mints or chapstick?

Those are really cute! I voted for mints – I always like anything edible

I heard edible is usually the way to go ^_^

mints for the men, chapstick for the women. A lot of guys dont like to be seen with anything that looks like lipstick.
those are actually both really good favors, (and I’m generally oppposed to favors across the board).

yeah – I agree with Meowkers, most men dont like to be caught dead with that stuff!
I on the other hand am a chapstick-fiend! I have about 4 in my purse and am applying tons of times daily – its my ‘lipstick’
oh and I dont like mints…

Even though I’m a chapstick junkie, I’d rather have the mints.

Mints for sure!! I’d rather have something to eat and then reuse the tin for purse meds =D

I voted for the mints, but both are cute. Could you use the chapstick as maybe part of a gift for your bridesmaids?

Where did you find the damask chapstick?

Chapstick – It is great for both women and men. Mints are BORING and have been used a million times. Go with something different that your guest will remember.

The chapstick is really cute, but I think the mints are more universal. Plus the chapstick could melt and turn into a mess if it’s warm during your reception!

Mints. I read this post out loud to my FI and he just slowly turned his head with the most confused look on is face — ‘chapstick’?
I love chapsticks too but I’m kind of picky on my brand/type. And FI hates chapstick (he still doesn’t get that licking your lips doesn’t moisturize but actually aids in dry lips).
You could share the idea of chapstick with whomever is throwing you a shower, it could be a cute shower favor.
OR, I saw this ‘Choose Your Favor’; setup on Martha, you could do something like that!

Thanks, ladies! I think I have decided to go with the chapstick, but I am going to do a candy buffet as well. Maybe I can please everyone with two options. Thanks for your help!
