I would do the chocolates. But that’s just me personally, I always prefer edible favours. I have a drawer filled with wedding favours that we meant to be practical that I haven’t used. Fans, wine stoppers, bottle openers, even chopsticks.

Go edible or skip them. No one will miss them if they aren’t there. Just because you like wine doesn’t mean that every single one of your guests do. Those who don’t drink wine will leave theirs behind  or toss them out later which will be wasted money on your part. The design is moot.

Cute design, but I would skip them. Many people aren’t wine drinkers & would probably have no use for something like this. I’m sure the chocolates would be much more appreciated 🙂

I’m with the other posters… I’d go with the choclates because your guests are more likely to use them. The wine stoppers are more hit or miss. Neither one is tacky at all though, so don’t worry about that.

I agree – I find that consumables (chocolate, candy, etc.) are more appreciated and people will actually use them.

Definitely do chocolates. A lot of people don’t like wine and if they do, they already have stoppers for their wines. However, YOU should get the wine stopper because it is adorable and it’s something that can always remind you of your wedding!

There are definitely more people out there that like chocolate. So go with chocolate. (mmm…chocolate.)

I have to agree with everyone else.. everyone loves chocolate! You can have a wrapper made to match your colors and even have your names and date put on it.

Personally I think the wine stopper is way more “practical” than chocolate. Also, chocolates are boring, everybody does that lol.

I vote for the chocolate!  Everyone loves an edible favor!  And your guests won’t need a “practical” reminder of your wedding.  They were there to share in your day and your love.  And chocolate is yummy! 🙂

I like the wine stopper instead of the chocolate. A lot of people drink wine and if they don’t, but entertain, their guests will drink it. When they use the stopper, they will think of you. With chocolates, they eat them and don’t have anything “tangible” as a little keepsake.

chocolate.

In my opinion favours are best when they are consumable.

The wine stoppers will be end up in a drawer. Go with a less expensive options, at least people will eat chocolate and enjoy it.

Those are really cute but I agree that some people may not use them. Maybe you could do an option? Like choose one or the other? I don’t know if you would want to do that though. I’d probably pick that even though I don’t drink wine, just because a wine stopper is nice to have.

Anyway, we’re not doing favors. I don’t think anyone will even notice.
