We drink wine all the time – I’d love one of these.

I would definitely use it but you know your guests the best so would they.  I think no matter what favor (besides food) you pick not everyone would use it but if the majority would I would say go for it.

I don’t drink and Fiance rarely drinks wine so it wouldn’t be of use to *us* BUT I think they’re awesome and would definitely pass it on to someone who does drink wine! Yep, I’d re-gift it! LOL

I’d use it! I think edible favors are always best, but things that are actually useful (like a bottle-stopper) will probably go over well. Things that are not good favors have pictures of the couple/their names/wedding dates engraved on them! I mean, I know/love the couple (or I wouldn’t be there), but don’t thank me for coming by giving me your picture. 😉 I also find I get a lot of picture frames… thanks, but I really don’t need any more 2×3" picture frames!

Of course, anytime you give someone a favor that isn’t a consumable some people won’t take it home, but I think this one would be good for most people.

I was considering wine bottles as a favor for our wedding with a personalized label, etc. but the guest list has expanded quite a bit & the cost will be pretty high – so my second thought was wine stoppers. Honestly, it is something people will use. Even people who dont drink might have a bottle of wine in the house for guests. My cousin had wine charms as her favor & I use them all the time.

I think its a great idea. And to cut cost – maybe consider DIY-ing them to give them a more personal touch. Consider buying nice glass pieces & cork in whatever style you like & feel people would enjoy. However, i dont know the cost of that compared to buying them pre-made and boxed. WELCOME!!!!!!!

I’m actually not usually a fan of any favor that’s not edible (most of it is usually junk), but I’m really diggin’ this one! I love fall, and I’d definitely use something like this. Good find! I say go for it if they’re in your budget.

I probably wouldn’t use it (b/c we have quite a few we received as wedding gifts with our initals, etc)….however I do think it’s really cute and like grumpybear I’d pass it along to a friend or co-worker who might enjoy it.  I don’t think there is any one "100% usable" favor.  Even edible favors won’t appeal to everyone’s tastes so just make sure you go with something you really like and think the majority of your guests will as well….and don’t worry about the small percentage who won’t.  It’s truly one of those things where it’s the thought that counts….

If you choose those and have any left over….you could always repurpose them as hostess gifts for future parties you might attend.  They would be really cute along with a bottle of wine!  🙂

I don’t drink, but FH does, and I think that would be a really pretty and practical favor!

The favors are ADORABLE!!! If I was doing a fall wedding, I would definitely get that.
