@Mbrower08:  That’s a tough one because I LOVE the idea, it sounds really cute.  But personally, I wouldn’t be willing to spend that much.  We have a guest list of 150 and I’m only spending a couple hundred.

@Mbrower08:  we did one per couple (or single person if they were coming alone).   i think $700 is insane for favors b/c most people aren’t that excited about getting them. we just did those little dinner mint things but only b/c my mom felt like making the favors–i would’ve been fine with none.  also, most people will not remember if you don’t do anything at all.

We did one per person, and also made them into their table/escort cards. So, for about $6 per person, that covers both the favors and the escort cards. Maybe you can somehow do that with the BBQ sauce bottles?

Only getting proper favours for those directly involved in the wedding – for all others it will be some sort of mints/sweets/something else edible on the tables!

@Mbrower08:  i think it depends on the favor. I did coffee mugs, so it would be odd giving it out to 1 per couple because then you won’t have a matching mug, so i ordered 1 for everyone.

I would do one per family, if you are inviting kids (the under 18 varity) 

I would also be 10-20 short of the total count that you would need or REALLY like the BBQ sauce you are buying.  At most weddings I go to, my FI has taken the nickname “pockets plus one” because my ID and debit card go in his pockets.  I wouldn’t have anything to carry a bottle of BBQ sauce in all night.  I don’t know if the BBQ sauce would make it home as we may forget.

@Mbrower08: Personally, that is WAY more money than I’d be willing to pay for favors… but it IS a really cute idea – what about doing one per couple? Or family?

We did one for each guest, but ours ended up being way cheaper than we expected ($1.90 per person)… We did coffee in cute little burlap bags!

They were a huge hit, and we had like 3 leftovers, and guests afterward asking for any extras. 🙂

I’d suggest you use them as part of your escort cards, or place them on the table, with whatever you choose to give. The last wedding I went to had little bottles of wine and a candy bar. They were both cleaned-out before everyone left.
