Honestly? Could you consider a different favour? No one really wants or needs a CD of your personal favourite types of music. And how many people even listen to CD’s at all anymore, with mp3 players etc?

 

If you feel like you must do this, I would do no more than 1 per couple, and set them out on a table, rather than at each place setting. I feel like you’ll have lots of these CDs left over at the end of the night.

I’m with the other poster, a CD of your music isn’t something I would use. Unless of course by coincidence you had the exact same taste in music, which is almost certain you don’t.

I too suggest something else. But if you must 1 per couple. Why does 1 couple need 2 of the exact same CD in 1 house? (They don’t…)

1 per couple. But like PP said, a lot of people might not be interested, I never take these type of favors.

Some people are so negative!!! Geekily, I say do what you want to do and add a variety of music on there. It’s about you and your hubby’s day and what you want to do. I personally like them better than candles or a picture frame. I’m still trying to figure out if it should be given to per person or per couple…

We are not putting ours on the tables since we are not having a sit down dinner. We will have them in a cute box for people to take at the end of the night. We need help with wording for a sign, something to let people know to take them. We were thinking something like– For your listening pleasure blah blah blah. Any help would be really appreciated 

Thanks!

I have gotten cd’s as wedding favors and never listened to them. I don’t think a couple would need more than one. I always think a good idea for favors is something you can use yourself if it is left behind. Like candy, or wooden matches, or candles.

A cd sounds great! Non-edible favors are one per couple.

I think the CDs will be fine. I would only provide one per couple. I love the idea of having like yours and your Fiance picture on the CD maybe?? Also, I would use music from the wedding and yes, I agree that MP3s are popular now but everyone does not have one in their car so that would be a perfect place to use it! 🙂

I think one per couple is fine. Except you want to make it clear, since you’re basically putting them on a table as a free-for-all.

 

Also, I would say that children don’t need favors at all. I wouldn’t consider the activity book to be a favor–more like entertainment for them.

CDs are kind of a hit or miss with guests, but I think they are fun and chances are if we are friends, we’ll have around the same tastes.

I like the idea of putting your first dance together, but other meaningful songs like father-daughter dance seem kinda pointless. Those songs only really mean something to you and your hubby to be.

I really like the idea of a cd, who knows, you might introduce someone to a whole style of music they hadn’t thought to listen to. It will make people think of you when they do listen to it, far more meaningful than a bag of sweets. Will some people not like the music?? Probably…. but even if I didnt love the songs I would still have a listen and a happy smile at how the music is so ‘you and your partner’. I would go for one per couple as they shouldnt need 2, though maybe extras for those that dont live together. If you are giving colouring books for kids then those are your favours for them in my view.

Geez some people are ridiculous and rude! I think the c.d is such a cute idea. I got a c.d. from a wedding once, but they were all old boring songs, so I say mix it up with a bunch of types of music, love songs, dance songs, etc. I think you should go for it!
