    Hmm… earrings and cufflinks? Not that all guys use cufflinks but they’re kind of fun.

    What type of wedding are you having?

    I am not splitting the favors into male/female guests. I am having a Victoiran themed wedding and so far I am going to give out individual apple pies and heartshaped birdseed favors. I am going to have one more favor, just because I don’t like even numbers, but I haven’t decided on that one yet.

    Allthough, I like the idea of wine charms, I am not sure that the guys would use them after the wedding. They are nice to have for guests to keep track  of their drinks though.

    Why not food? I can’t imagine hords of men actually digging a trinket, you know?

    Is there any special reason you wouldn’t do edible favors for everyone? I don’t think it’s going to seriously affect anyone’s enjoyment of your wedding, but I think favors should either be all the same or at least comparable. Earrings vs. pretzels are very different, and might look a bit off together. 

    We’re just doing food for everyone – I’m sure they’ll all love it.

    Do you know if all of your female guests have pierced ears? I know several women that don’t, or can only wear precious metals because of allergies…

    Honestly, I think that edible favors are almost always better than non-edible. People like yummy things, and if you make earrings or get wine charms/cufflinks, there’s a good possibility that some people won’t have the same style as you and will end up leaving them behind or not using them. Of course, there’s a possibility they could not like whatever edible favor you give as well…I also don’t know that I love the idea of gender-split favors. What if you have women that don’t wear earrings, period? But I do love the fact that you want to personalize your favors with your beadwork…would it be possible to use beadwork to decorate the favor boxes or something?

    Oh I like the idea if you’re a beader. It’d be a nice personal touch! Is there something that is a hobby of your Fiance you could incoprorate, since the girls’ is inspired by you? e.g. a bookmark for the men, if FI’s into reading, personalized tees if he’s into golfing…

    Either give everyone edible favors or else skip them entirely as they are never required. Also, jewelry is highly personal and what you think someone may like, they may end up hating, which is wasted money on your part.

    I’m a girl, but I don’t have pierced ears. I think I’d be a little annoyed if I got earrings as a favor and my SO got an edible. I’d be looking for some sap guy to trade with. 🙂

    What about giving everyone a choice?

    Yea I’m going to have to say i’m not loving the guys having edible and the girls not. Either both edible or neither IMO
