I saw a post earlier that was saying wedding favours are a waste and no one likes them anyways so I thought FI and I had a brilliant idea but now Im not so sure……because everyone said they dont like personalized favours and would rather have something edible (which we cant do because we are flying to Jamaica) soo since we travel a lot we (and some of your guests dont so they wouldnt think of it) we learned you should always bring a travel mug with you to keep your drinks cold since they get hot/melt so fast and of course you get lots more than in their small cups they give you at the bar so you dont have to make constant trips to the bar/pool bar etc…. We were going to have this written on these cups….
To have and to hold and to keep your drink cold!

Here is the cup we would get personalized, what do you guys think? Now I feel its kind of a bad idea but I loved it before…

I was thinking “cute” until I got to the personlized part. Personally, I wouldn’t keep/use anything with someone else’s name, monogram, or wedding date on it.

I don’t know I get mugs, travel mugs from just about everywhere- work, school, events, xmas parties the last thing I’d want is ANOTHER cup.

Personally… I got a ton of these from various places and events that are just sitting in the cabinet under the sink collecting dust….

I don’t like personalized favors. Maybe I would use it while In Jamaica for your wedding but I would probably never look at it again once I got home. Honestly, I’d probably skip them and save the money and hassle of transporting them. Have you thought about doing a simple OOT bag instead?

Can you put a favorite shared quote or something else meaningful on it? I probably wouldn’t use it if you had your name and date on it, but I would love it if it was semi-personalized :).

I think considering you are having a destination wedding having non-edible favors wouldn’t be a good idea. Think about it, you’re asking your guest to lug something back to the states or whereever they’re flying from. My friend had her wedding in hawaii, gave all the women those hawaiian parisolles as favors, no one took them home because it was burdensome to stuff it into the suitcase and bring it back home.
I think, if you can’t do edible favors, maybe instead do something smaller or an experience as a favor like a photobooth booth where you can get them to send the pictures to their email or something.

I’ll be blunt, I hate personalized favors. I wouldn’t carry around a mug with my own name on it, why do I want a mug with yours? I also get loads of promotional mugs and thermoses already…

I probably wouldn’t carry something around with someone’s wedding date on it. I probably would use it during the wedding weekend though.

I would actually really like this! I take coffee to work every day and I only have one or two of these travel mugs. And as far as personalization goes, I wouldn’t mind it on a mug. 🙂

Being honest I’d love something like that, coffee addict over here, it’d be perfect.

I would also probably not use it… And it looks kind of big. Won’t shipping a bunch of those from Canada to Jamaica be expensive?

I’ll be honest, since you asked. I would probably not take it if it was a favor.
1) I already have a ton of tumblers for both hot and cold in all varieties of materials – glass, plastic, stainless steel, etc.
2) The personalization part reminds me of corporate giveaways at tradeshows.
3) Sometimes the really inexpensive tumblers are not very good quality (e.g. leaks, tabs get stuck) and I’m assuming you don’t want to spend a ton of money on these.
We went to a DW with edible favors and the bride just had them assembled by a vendor there. Then the guests can just eat it while they are there and there’s nothing to pack.
