- Wedding: October 2016 - His Way Church & Chesapeake Room @ Downs Park
First off, I want to thank the bee that suggested cookie cutter favors…such a cute idea! Second, are 2 inch cookie cutters too small to give out as favors? My guests will also be getting take home bags of candy, a mini pumpkin and handkercheifs to use at the reception. I found these copper cookie cutters for $3.99 for 4 (pretty much $1 a piece) but they are only 2 inches wide. I see they have larger ones that are about 5.5 inches wide, but those go anywhere from $3.99-$6.99 a piece. I don’t really want to buy the larger ones so I am wondering if it’s better to not buy the 2 inch at all or if they will still be usable? I’d rather just scrap the idea if you all think it’s pointless. Here is a pic (my date is very close to halloween):

If you really want the cookie cutters, the 2 inch ones will be fine. But take a moment to think- how many of your friends and family ever make sugar cookies that they roll and cut out?
I think the bag of candy is enough, on its’ own.
Other copper ideas:
a key bookmark- could be used to tie te bag of candy
or these copper tags for the candy bags- 10 for 99 cents

Personally, I would love it. We have a bunch of cookie cutters. A 2″ one is completely perfect. We have atleast a dozen.

I think you have enough, with your other 3 gifts. I haven’t made “roll-out” cookies, since my grandmother died (1994). I used to use the larger cookie cutters on bread, to make novelty sandwhiches for my kids, though.

I’d use it. But I’m not sure if every guest would. It might just get thrown away or forgotten about.
The people who’d probably want it the most are the ones who like to bake. In my case, I already have basic fall shapes. Maybe you can find a more unique shape or fancier version?
Here’s what I really think you should do: use those cookie cutters to make cookies of your own and give those out as favors. Or buy fall-shaped cookies.

I think they are a cute idea. I would like receiving one but I think you have favor over kill! 4 favors is alot of guests to take home, I would be prepared to have guests leave alot of that stuff behind because there are so many items.

I’d never use a cookie cutter – I’d go “awww that’s cute” but then never use it.
But to answer your question, I think 2″ ones are fine.
I think you have enough. Three items is a lot.
And candy is good! And delicious! I think the one thing is fine.

I think they are cute, but to be quite honest this reminded me of my brother’s wedding where they gave out snowflake shaped cookie cutters which were sooooo cute and I had to have one and for the life of me I have no idea where it is now or have never used it…. some people will use them, but some won’t (like me)…

I love the idea – but then again, I love to bake and I make roll out cookies a few times a year. The only thing is – I would use the pumpkin or the leaf, but maybe not the other two – shapes like that can be hard to identify once baked.
