    I’ll be honest, it really depends on what it is. I see a lot of favors on the Bee, SMP, etc that I’d snatch up in a heartbeat. But the real favors I’ve gotten (a teeny tiny vase that can fit one fake flower, and two tiny beach themed picture frames) have not been my thang, and I’ve pitched them.

    Everyones different (IMO) depending on what it is and if i like it i would keep it but probably in a box but their is a chance i would just toss it.

    I don’t usually even take them, unless it’s a cookie or something.  I especially don’t want something with somebody else’s name on it…

    Would those double as your escort cards?  If they do double duty and they’re inexpensive, then go for it.  However, I’ll be honest and say I’d probably end up throwing those away once I got them home… I don’t see a real use for them in a person’s house.

    I think it’s cute.  I’d keep it even though I’m not a scrabble fan.  Too be honest though, I’ve never been to a wedding (that I can remember) that had favors to take home, it’s always been something edible.

    I would definitely keep that….I must live in that pretend world too! We’re doing an edible (errrr…drinkable) favor, which is my favorite kind. I think yours are very unique (I really like them!) and the guests will like them because they will have their own names on it, but I agree, some of the typical favors are dinky and I end up throwing them away.

    Honestly, all the weddings I have attended have had edible favors so it hasn’t been an issue. I just don’t see the point of other favors.

    To be perfectly honest, many people just waste their money. My Boyfriend or Best Friend did ornaments for her Dec. wedding. They went on my tree… other than that I eat the edible ones. 🙂

    I think they’re cute, and since they double as your escort cards, I think it’s definitely worth it, but to be honest, I wouldn’t keep it. Maybe for a little while. Then it would end up in either a box in the closet or the trash.

    It’s not a matter of not liking something though – I am just not a ‘stuff’ person. I don’t keep any knick knacks around if I can help it, I don’t have figurines (except the one that Future Mother-In-Law gave J and I as a congrats-you’re-engaged gift, which was lovely of her, but if she keeps giving me more [she herself has dozens], I don’t honestly know what to do with them) or frames that sit on things (wall frames yes, desk frames no), or little stuffed animals or wind up toys littering the edges of my desk or the shelves of my home.

    I think a lot of people go edible because it’s impossible to find one ‘lasting’ item that will actually match the style and decor of 200+ people. 🙂

    I have only ever encountered edible favors.  However, if it was something useful I would keep it.  Ejoyb: I love the scrabble plaque.  I would definitely put it on my desk.

    I think that is really cute. I am not a fan of favors, but I can see me putting that on my desk as well.

    I am a bad guest–Guilty of throwing away the favor. Most of my friends had something edible. My friend gave away t-shirts and the Fiance and I wore our matching shirts the next day everywhere we went. (totally making fun of the idea. Looking back probably not that nice)
