    Hmm… It’s a good idea, but I think I’d leave it behind. When I go to a wedding I am usually not looking to leave with 50+ feet of rope. 

     

    What about giving a more traditional favor (like your cookie idea) and just using a tiny bit of rope to tie the bag–assuming they can make thin rope?

    Ya with the others, don’t like this gift as a favor.

    Here is my 2 cents, can you use the rope to make these for the table card holders.

    What???  This is the best idea ever!!!  It’s super practical, and no one is going to be like, “Ugh not more jordan almonds!”  Who cares if it’s not girly and frilly?

    I chose 100ft long because it seemed more practical.

    @Kandiss16:  Why would a guy want a bracelet?  Just being stereotypical, but seriously…favors are supposed to represent the couple, and to be for all the guests.

    I really like the braclets. Some people might find the rope thing odd, but hey it is your wedding, if you like it , go with it. It just depends on your crowd I guess. Depends if you have alot people who really are into and expect really ‘traditional’ wedding stuff.

    @peachacid:  Keychains maybe? lol it kind of does if he works at the rope company. Although i have no idea if he does.. i voted for scrap it but i still think the bracelettes are cute, maybe androgenous (sp)..

    I like the bracelet idea , and you can make paracord bracelets for the guys, this is esp. useful for camping. maybe you can get the ones buckles with the emergency whistle.

    Maybe just be, but what does a person do with rope?  At no point have I ever been trying to do something and thought “if only I had 100 feet of rope right now”.

    I am a fan of edible favours, I do like that this rope company represents your FI and his family so could you use a small piece as decoration?  Have a bag of cookies, or chocolates, etc tied with the rope?

    Mmmm. If I needed rope I would go and buy it from the hardware.  Then I would have the rope and would not need any more.  If I didnt need rope, then I wouldn’t need rope. So… Your favour doesnt make a lot of sense to me, as it’s more of a ‘need’ thing than a ‘want’ thing…

     

    I think you would be better off incorporating it into decor… I imagine you could do some pretty stunning things with it!

    I think it would work if the rope was woven together to make it smaller.  For example, like the way paracord is woven (see image below).  I have a bracelet that’s got 12 feet of rope in it, but it’s the size of a normal bracelet.  My husband has a couple necklaces that have like 50 ft or some obnoxiously large number woven into a normal looking necklace.  It’s cool and useful at the same time.

    Every man invited to the wedding will be hauling that rope out of there.  My husband would also take anyone’s that was left.  LOL 

    I, on the other hand, would have no need or it or any other wedding favor but I would take mine home for him.  🙂

    You can use rope to…get down a cliff if you’re on your way to Mordor…string up a clothesline to dry off your cloak later…tie up Gollum in case he runs off…secure things to the top of your GIANT EAGLE/car…play games…use one end around you and the other around your significant other to explore caves and other places…use it to get up a tree or down from in a tree…man rope is USEFUL.

     

    But since no one is practical-minded at weddings, apparently, you could have those bracelets made.  Without fancy trinkety clasps.  Even my husband wears one of those sometimes.
