I think you can definitely have enough koozies. We have like 10+ just sitting in a cabinet that have never been used. I have my alumi’s koozie I’ve used at a tailgate but besides that, when do you even use koozies? I personally think they are overdone and not very practical.

I don’t know any drinkers who carry koozies around with them… just saying.

I like the idea, and I’m always whining about how my hand is cold and I need a koozie!

Honestly, I never was one for koozies, so I would say go for something else.  It seems like most people prefer edible favors at weddings over something that will sit on a shelf and never be used.

texaslemon:  Please do something edible. I find most “useful” things from wedding are’t that useful and just end up being junk.

I don’t mind koozies, and I’ve never gotten them as a wedding favor.  But, and I know this may not be the answer you’re looking for, but I really don’t think favors are necessary at all.  I see them go to waste ALL the time.  If you must do a favor, I’m with your FI – edible is the way to go.  Then even if people leave them behind, someone can always grab extras and put them to good use!

I like koozies and appreciate the ones we have gotten at weddings.  But we also car camp and BBQ and lake day a lot in the summer so we’re the koozie type of people! : )

I’m kinda over it. But I wouldn’t be mad at receiving one as a favor either. Do what makes you happy.

You’d probably have a bunch that people don’t take home with them. Another favor may be more popular.

We use them all the time for tailgating, BBQs, lake days, bonfires, camping,etc. I probably have 10-15 and it’s nice so when people come over we have plenty to go around.

I don’t own any koozies and that is just the right number for me. I am ALL about edible favors. I do not want anything (at all) that will exist in my home from anyone’s wedding. I am not trying to be cold hearted – I hate clutter and I am married to someone who seems to manufacture the stuff. I don’t want a shot glass, a candle, a cookie cutter, a wine stopper, a wine glass or coffee cup with your names and dates on them. I have received all of those things and complimented the happy couple on what great favors they chose. Then….I threw them away. I have eaten every edible favor and complimented THOSE couples for choosing edible!  I am tickled freaking pink with a few Hershey Kisses over anything tangible.

I dont even know what a koozie is but I honestly cant think of a “practical” favor because it’s most likely not what a couple wants to spend enough on (per guest) for it to be useful for me. I agree with your FI and would get edible favors or nothing at all.

Edible, edible, edible!! All the way. It’s funny, because you said “FI likes edible, and I like practical” but I actually think edible IS more practical! No waste, people either eat or give to someone else to eat, and then whatever is left behind can be consumed by the bridal party and/or family. It would suck to be left with a bunch of cheap trinkets. But food/candy/desserts/etc? Um, yes, I’ll take all the leftovers, please!
