Whoa, you weren’t kidding.

Well, you could do the bubbles for the getaway, the red flashing hearts for the reception (dance-floor fun and attire), tie the bells to the boxes of jelly beans, and since your names are already on the key chains, put them out at some point during the reception for people to take. You could even prop up a framed list of local reputable cab companies to encourage people to get rides home if they’re hammered.

Or you could sell off what you don’t want to use and then make use of what you have leftover.

Maybe use some of it for rehearsal dinner favors? or bridal shower favors?

I am a mother of the bride.  My daughter’s fiance wants to have shot glasses, with the bride and groom name engraved on them as favours.  He really has his mind set on this.

I suggested if he wanted to have them, that we could put candy in the shot glass and wrap them with ‘netting’ to dress them up. and wrap a ribbon around them.

 I don’t think they will need tags since their names are engraved on the shot glasses – what do you think?  any suggestions?

mother of the bride, I think that’s a great idea!  Friends of mine gave out personalized pilsner glasses as favors and filled them with candy and tied a ribbon around them.  It worked very nicely.  The netting will dress up the shot glasses a bit, and if you fill them with M&Ms or jellybeans in the wedding colors I think it will really look cute.  What do the bride and groom think?

I shot a very casual backyard wedding for some friends. here are their shot glass favors (they have a sense of humor!). They were filled with those ‘bride and groom’ mints that you often see places like Michaels.

SUZANNEA– At this point, go with the favor that you like the best as the "favor." I like some of the other ideas about using them thoughout that wedding day (i.e. getaway, dancefloor fun).

 In regards to the shot glasses. My brother and sister in law used shot glasses filled with m&m’s in the colors of their wedding. They wrapped them in clear plastic with a nice little bow. It was really cute, and even if you didn’t need the shot glasst the candy was good after the night of dancing!

Why dont you use your key chain and placement cards.  IDK maybe you can put a teg on them with the person name on them tell them where to go.  Good luck

Those are also my colors and what we were going to do was buy red table wine for each couple with our names and wedding date on it. we figured for about 200 guests it would cost about $600. Now we are planning on getting a photo booth which will not only act as our guest book but also prints out an extra copy for the gust as their favor. They can also take as many photo’s as they wish. I suppose you shouldn’t worry too much about how elaborate your gift looks you are going to have people who love them and people who hate them all in all they will either get used and thrown out or just thrown out.

Here’s my suggestion:

Use the bubbles for either your exit from the ceremony, entrance to reception, first dance or evening exit. You can put them in a basket by the door for guests to pick up or put one at each place setting or in the middle of the table.

I don’t know what the bells look like but they could also serve as a way to engage guests in an entrance or exit. Alternatively, you can do the kiss when a guest rings a bell instead of a glass clink.


Use the candy and key chains as the actual favor. Tie them together with a ribbon and either put one at each place setting (if you don’T have enough split them and do every other place so a couple gets a set).

Use the hearts as place cards which can easily turn into dance floor decorations.

I realize you posted this awhile ago but I just saw it and started thinking about solutions.
