What is one of the most awful wedding favors you ever go? What is one of the best?
My fiance and I rock climb together and we thought to give the guests an option of a wine glass or a carabiner with engraved coordinates and the date. We figured people didn’t want to roam around with our names everywhere they went on the carabiner or wine glass but a lot of people think carabiners are a bad idea? I’m outdoorsy so I think they’re awesome and useful but understand not everyone may feel the same way. I want our gusts to have a great time and take something home that they actually want to take home and can use later. Open to suggestions!

I’m outdoorsy so I’d love to get another carabiner because somehow I never have enough!
But if you want a general crowd pleaser for favors, you can’t go wrong with something edible! We are doing M&Ms and mini chocolate bars.

I had to google what a carabiner was and wouldn’t choose this over the wine glass. Of these choices, I would just go with the wine glass if I were you, since I think you would have a shortage of wine glasses and a lot of carabiners left over if you had both.
JMO, but I would skip the favors altogether or have something edible if you really want to do them. Any favor that isn’t edible just turns into clutter and gets thrown out within a month. The best favors are awesome memories.

Sorry, I wouldn’t use either. Something edible, is your best bet.
P.S. We’re not outdoorsy, nor do we drink wine. Our daughter’s have complete sets of matching glassware, since they married within the last few years.

I wouldn’t use either. I have matching sets of wine glasses, so I don’t need one mismatched one with someone’s name on it, and I’d have no use for a carabiner. I’d much prefer either something to eat, or nothing.

I use a carabiner for my keys, thats about it. If you are outdoorsy maybe a little s’mores would be a nice favor

how about CARABINER or HONEY option?
I think men would opt for carabiner

I did wine glasses, but I didn’t do any engraving because they would probably never use a wine glass with our names and wedding date on it… We got a bunch of lindor chocolates in our wedding colors and filled each wine glass with a bunch of the chocolates then wrapped in cellophane, that way they got a sweet treat and a set of wine glasses they could actually use in the future

the s’mores idea is so cute! maybe some rock candy? (see what I did there?)
I’m a big fan of edible favors

we are outdoor people, but I still wouldn’t want a carabiner with someone else’s name/date/info on it.
I would prefer something edible.

The carabiner is a cool idea, and it suits you as a couple!

what about a carabiner with coordinates only? (We’re getting married in Yosemite )

I usually hate most of the favors couples have, but I LOVE the carabiner idea! Everyone can use it for something. But I’d probably skip your names and put the coordinates on (fun idea).
Even if you aren’t outdoorsy, you can use carabiners for so many things (as a key chain, we’ve used it to attached two dog leashes together while at the beach, keeping like items together such as bags/bag handles, etc.
The wine glass – I probably wouldn’t use it. Not that I don’t drink wine (I do), but I have plenty of wine glasses already (probably too many) and I don’t like mismatched sets. 🙂
