Our wedding is going to be very simple and casual. At a bridal fair i won $50 off koozies with a minimum purchase of 400 pieces.Awesome right? Well i think i will barely have 250-300 people at our reception. Not so great with 100+ extra koozies! Is it worth it to buy koozies? They would be our favors for our guests. We will only be serving cans of beer for alcohol besides our specialty drink. (There will also be water and punch available) We have a tight budget and because of a recent job loss, our budget is even tighter.
I would love to hear some opinions…

Could you split the personalization on the order? Or get it without names and just the date and split the cost with a same day bride on here?

I only like edible favors, so no. Plus, who needs 400 koozies?

We already have a desgin picked out that we would like to use. I never thought of that. Seems tricky!

Are you actually saving money if you are required to buy 400 and you only need $250? I’m going to guess probably not.
I also hate these things and don’t think they’re a great favor, myself.

We had budgeted for getting 200 or so. We both come from families that are big drinkers, so it is only natural for these to be our favors.

@xoxo_712: What’s the cost of buying 200 vs. buying 400 and getting $50 off? I’m guessing you’ll still be paying more than you originally budgeted for.

I wouldn’t do koozies. Honestly, I wouldn’t take them home to begin with, and past polls have shown that many people agree. I don’t need or want koozies, so I’d leave it on the table, which just equates to wasted money for you.
I would find a cheaper alternative for favors, and try to make it edible. Those ones actually get used!

My MOH did koozies for her wedding, personally I think mine ended up in garbage.. I rather not have a koozie with someone elses wedding date on it

As a guest, I would not want to receive a koozie. I would never use it, and probably would just leave it there. It also seems very wasteful to order way more favours than the number of guests you have.

Do people still use those things?

Koozies are very regional….tons of people in my area do them – and I’m talking about formal, black tie weddings. So if they’re common in your area, go for it if you want them and it won’t cost you more to do the 400.

@xoxo_712: If you were going to use them as favors anyway, and the cost of 400 of them minus the $50 is cheaper than the cost of however many you actually need without a discount, then go for it. I wouldn’t use one, and I don’t know anyone who would, but I’m under the impression that they’re a regional thing and it sounds like you live in a region where they are commonly used!
