I personally don’t like any favours with the bride and grooms names on them! I am not actually going to drink out of a mug or use a shot glass that has someone else name on them!

I might use the bottle opener but that’s because it stays in a drawer and only comes out for a short period of time!

So I am going to vote for option B!

Nothing personalized with your names and date, unless it is edible. Out of the choices you are giving, I would go with Option A, but not personalized, unless it is just an attached tag that is personalized.

I vote for option B.

Everyone can use coffee mugs, even if they don’t like coffee (like me!) but I’m not a fan of putting names/dates on it.

I vote for D. Only because I am not a coffee lover. I like the idea of the mug with something in it though.

I would go with option A. It’s practical and includes an edible favor. If these are remotely expensive, it is ok to skip them. Favors are the first thing to be cut if someone is on a budget since most guests don’t notice or care about them, and often wish that the favor budget was instead allocated toward food, beverages, music, photography, that will be noticed and remembered after the wedding day is over.

Everyone has at least one random coffee mug in their house so it’s not a “useless knicknack” just because it has the couple’s names and date on it as anything else would be. If someone doesn’t like coffee, they can either take it home and save it for a guest who drops by or give the coffee packet to another guest and take the mug home.

You should add a poll!

I agree about not really using things with someone else’s names/date on it. I like Option B!

B, D or E, but go easy on the personalisation. Or skip the favours for a charity donation, or a signature cocktail, or a candy buffet….

I would go with B.  But I have to say that I have been to a ton of weddings and can honestly say I do not have a single favor from any of them nor can I even tell you what they were.  We are skipping favors.  We chose instead to have a full open bar with transportation home for all of our guests, we want everyone to have a blast and get home safely.

I agree with the couple comments about if the favors are even necessary. As a “guest” at your wedding :), I’d rather you keep the money or put it into something that matters to you most than to get another mug for my cabinet.

If you’re set on favors, I’d prefer something edible or options I can choose from (’cause I’m choosy 🙂

A and B will serve the most people.  Lots of people don’t drink, but everyone uses a coffee mug.
