    wow at first when I read it I thought it said homemade “soup” and I thought…wow that is really odd, why would I want scented or unscented soup??  I’m an idiot.  I would like some soap as a favor, you could make them to match your wedding colors.  I think it’s a good idea as long as it’s not too expensive, time consuming, or will drive you crazy!

    Edit: to answer you scent question, I like lemon, so clean!

    I’d rather not have any favor, and we don’t use bar soap in my house. But if you put a cute tag on it that said it was “Handmade with love,” then I’d think that was really thoughtful and “Oh, isn’t she talented?”

    I also like lemon scent. I’d be okay with scented or unscented though.

    As someone with ridiculous allergies to bath products, I’m always leery of gifted bath products. Unscented castille soap would be ok, but it would probably be best if it was undyed as well.

    I would like it.  I prefer homemade bath products anyway!  Much better than things loaded with chemicals.  As long as you know what you’re doing, I’d enjoy it.  If you want to do scented, can you just wait to do it a month before the wedding?

    My immediate reaction was ‘no way’ – I have horrible sensitivities to bath products and have to be really careful. But if it’s unscented and undyed Castile soap, it would be alright, but you’ll probably want to say so on the label for any guests who are like me. On the other hand, I think a lot of people don’t really like unscented soap.

    Maybe you could do two different kinds, like one scented and one unscented?

    Generally I would say no, but since that is something you actually do regularly, I love the personal touch, and I would happily take it!

    I wouldn’t mind, but I actually prefer unscented.

    I love homemade soaps.  Even if some of your guests didn’t end up using them themselves, they would still love that you made the soaps yourself.

    @Minnow:  The people who don’t use them might set them out as guest soaps in their bathrooms.  I like getting special soaps for that kind of thing, and your homemade soaps would definitely fit the bill.

    I received home made soap as a wedding favor before. Love the idea and I was excited for it BUT the soap did not smell so pleasant :-/ 

    I would make a test batch first =)
