    If I were a guest then I would want the coffee/tea favors because they are something I would for sure use.

    I voted for tea & coffee because I don’t think people would appreciate or find use in a 2″ pot. I think you might get a lot of those left behind & wasted, whereas people are more likely to take home something they know they can use (or eat).

    although the pottery is super unique, i think the tea and coffee would get used by most of the guests – plus its cheaper!

    i had champagne flutes filled with hershey kisses as favors and i ended up with a least 3 boxes that people forgot to take or didnt want.

    I vote for option two and agree with previous posters!

    While the pots look awesome, I think people will get much more use out of tea and coffee!

    @FallBride100111:

    Well then I would for sure go with the tea and coffee because it is not going to go to waste either way.

    @FallBride100111: Honestly, I love the fact that the little pots bring a part of your FI’s culture into the mix. I wasn’t able to bring my FI’s Cuban culture in through our favors but I am doing cigar boxes on the guest tables with Cuban postcards in each cigar box for our guests to sign rather than doing a guest book. We’ll also be introduced at the reception to the theme from I Love Lucy. I agree that the other favor will get used more but the little pots would mean more to me personally and will be sitting somewhere in someone’s house. We chose to use North Carolina honey as our favors because we met and live in NC but our families are from NY and CA and our wedding is in NY.

    I agree coffee/tea would probably be more useful for most guests. But the pots are cool, and a great price – can you use them in the decor? As centerpieces? On the cake table? Something to bring in his heritage (unless you’re already doing that otherwise).

    The pottery is so unique!  I’m really surprised at how many people would rather have tea or coffee.  Seriously!  You could buy tea and coffee anywhere–but a beautiful little pot from Nicaragua?  That’s not something you see everyday.  Definitely unique and I would love to have such a special and meaningful gift!

    When in doubt, go edible or else skip them (truthfully no one will miss them if they are not there). While the pots are cute and a nod to your fiance’s heritage, be prepared to take most of them home yourselves since many people do not care for or have room for trinkets.

    I am with Oribel013690! I think the pottery is really unique, and I know I would use it as a guest. It would make a really cute little bud vase! Coffee and Tea is a little boring to me, and it seems a little funny to just set it out on a table and have them choose. You can get tea and coffee anywhere. I would much rather have something that is special to you as a couple. While I agree edible is usually good, it is not like you are contemplating giving them a silly little cliche wedding favor.

    I would definitely go with the tea and coffee. Maybe you can incorporate the vases into your decor?

    Ok, ok, if everyone says tea and coffee, can you at least package them in a cute way? It just seems so weird…here, pick up some tea or coffee.
