OK well I really have this in mind:
The FI and I love the Ocean, Boats and everything nautical. Our wedding colors are mint, white and silver, we didn’t want to have a themed wedding like nautical. Is this making it a theme?
I wanted something practical for guests 🙂
But I want to see yours too for ideas!!! 😀

I think it’s great! Almost everyone can use another bottle opener. I would totally use it.
And having this as a favor does not make your wedding “nautical.”

We had a DW and had white chocolate sand dollars.
These are from the ETSY vendor…..not actually ours

I don’t have a picture but we are leaning toward doing Philly Pretzel Factory pretzels in a cute bag with a dipping sauce per person. It is like 60 bucks for 100 pretzels and 100 dipping sauces and I figure anyone who doesn’t want to eat theirs will get eaten by someone else! I say food that most people like is always a safe bet but those anchors are ADORABLE! I don’t think it would be too themey and would probably go with the color scheme you mentioned nicely!

We did a sweet n salty snack buffet, since 90% of my guests had to fly in for our wedding I thought it’d be nice for them to have snacks on the flight.

The food favors look great…but wanting something practical and lasting…
Sale on these guys ends tomorrow so trying to decide shortly.

@asianbarbie: I would go for the bottle openers if I were you. They are extremely practical and not only that, they are cute and a nice personalized touch to your wedding.
What is holding you back?

@asianbarbie: I went to a wedding over the weekend and my SIL said “if you do favors, make sure you can eat them.” It’s a pretty common theme, especially on the Bee. The wedding had favors, they were dumb/useless, and we all left them on the table. What a waste but I’m not toting crap home on a flight. I’d rather have munched on a midnight snack myself.

@LilRhodyGem I’ve also heard from my two wedding planner friends plus another one that food gets tossed out or you’re left with a ton, ie candy so I was always told non edible by the experts. Hence the praticality of such a favor. I’d rather have a ton of favors left over than food.
@MxH13 yes I’m leaning that way.

@MxH13: Thanks 🙂 I actually baked/made everything so the whole thing only cost me about $40-$50 (ingredients, signs, containers, etc), so less than $1 per guest. Definitely a viable alternative if you’re trying to stay under budget like I was.

We’re having a desitnation wedding in Vegas with only about 20 guest, so we are doing t-shirts for everyone, similar to these but with different wording. And then we are getting personalized Heinz Ketchup bottles and some sort of cookies.
