I think that would be ok, but how far of a drive do your guests have?  Like, how long can they be “not-refrigerated”?  What about guests who are not going directly to a hotel or their house?  Hmm… If everyone’s local I think it would work out ok, but I’d worry about those who would be traveling.

I would also choose a different kind of favour that wouldn’t require refrigeration just to take off any extra possible stress!

@perpetual_student:  Do you have any out of town guests? That are flying? They likely wouldn’t be able to take that favor home with them, due to both refrigeration and airline rules.

Not to say you shouldn’t do it; apple cider sounds delicious. Just something to think about.

That sounds delcious! I’d have them stick the cider in a big bucket of ice after the cake cutting, when people start leaving!

I think any wedding favor that you plan to give out, you should be prepared to deal with if none of them are taken.  If you love the apple cider, and have other people you can give it to, I would go for it.   If apple cider is just cute for your fall wedding, I would likely leave it.

Does the apple cider have to be refrigerated?  I would think it’d be worse to chill it and bring it up to room temperature than buy and keep it at room temperature. I would actually prefer non-iced cider, because then you don’t have to deal with water from the ice dripping all over the place, especially on my way out the door. (I’m also a big fan of hot cider, for what it’s worth.)

Honestly, I would go in a different direction.  You are going to be asking people to track how long something goes unrefrigerated and whether or not it is still safe.  If someone is going back to their hotel and they don’t have a minifridge, what are they supposed to do with it?

I absolutely adore cider but I really encourage you to think in a different direction on this one.

Honestly if I was a guest, I wouldn’t think it was a favor, I would just think it was another (special!) beverage option that I had somehow missed before. If it was presented to me as a take-this-home-and-drink-it-later favor, I wouldn’t take one. I don’t think it’s the best favor idea.

You could serve them as a late night snack so people could enjoy them before they leave your reception.

However they are presented, you could have paper napkins that match your decor to grab and go.

I say go for it if its what you love.
