Oh no! What was the original idea?

At 4 days out of the wedding, I wouldn’t even worry about favors.  That will just add extra stress on your plate that you don’t really need!  Just give yourself a break 🙂

What is the original idea?  Is it something that you can replicate?  Or can you alternate favors with something complimentary to the original idea?

You could alwyas stack them up by the door with a “take one” sign because, inevitably, a handful of people won’t take them. Some may miss out, yes, but at least you put them out for taking….don’t worry about it though, you definitely have bigger things on your plate. After the wedding, i promise this will be small beans.

Or, with what you have, could you do one per couple and then supplement it with simple candy in organza bags or tins from somewhere like Joanns?

Honestly as frustrating as it is to have put all that thought into favors and then have them fall through, I would just forget about doing them at all at this point, unless the other half of the shipment comes through. Trying to pull something new together at this point will just cause you a lot of unnecessary stress.

I’d do something you can buy and the guests can eat. Dress it up if you want, or get something that already has a color that would work with your scheme.

That sounds soo frustrating, but honestly it sounds like you are taking it in stride and being very rational about it. Kudos to you!

I say screw making new favors.  You don’t need to be doing those 4 days before your wedding and people aren’t gonna care that much.  Just put out the ones you have and at least almost every couple would get a favor to share.

I like @ejs4y8‘s idea- it’s true not everyone wants wedding favors. Maybe add that and little candies in boxes?

If you can’t work this out with getting the other half of your shipment, how about doing a charitable donation and just printing up tent cards for each table saying that in lieu of favors a charitable donation has been made?  I’ve been at a couple of weddings where the couple did that (and wrote a paragraph about the charity and why it’s meaningful to them) and I’m always moved by it.  Plus what a nice way to turn around the misfortune!  Smile

I hope it all works out for you!

Glad the seller was willing to work with you. That sucks that half got lost though. Fingers crossed and prayers that it gets to you in time!

And yes I would love to see what you concocted up!

Otherwise, GOOD LUCK with the wedding!! See you when you get back!

I’m glad that you were able to get this resolved and now you don;t have to worry about that.
