    either the double-duty bottles, or just a piece of cake in a box. coasters like that tend to failboat (i am in the midst of coaster-wars. flat ones just let all of the moisture run off), and, not to be a parade-rainer, i doubt that anyone would ever make the cookie mix. (unless it happened to be 5 months later during a desperate NEED SWEETS! 2 a.m. pantry raid.)

    so yeah, piece of wedding cake in a cute box, or maybe a candy bar thing. people like candy.

    (but in all honesty, you can just save yourself the stress and ditch the favors. for real.)

    instant gratification food is always a good way to go, especially with wedding guests. just think… hotel room mini bar post-reception… or COOKIES. 🙂

    i think the candy bar can be done and not look childish at all. check out amy atlas’ stuff. she’s done a variety of things that go from simple to extreme, but none of it comes off as dopey.

    Either go edible or skip them.

    From the ones you have listed, I would go with the heart cookie cutter and the mix. You could include a recipe with the mix too.

    I like your cookie idea the best.  Another option is boxed truffles.  They come in a white box and they let you choose what color ribbon to match your wedding colors.  http://www.danschocolates.com/product/chocolate-wedding-favors

    Also if you buy over 40 boxes they give you a 20% discount.

    I think if its going to be food it needs to be pre-made and ready to eat or else no one will use it.

    Out of thoes ideas I like the jones sodas the best.

    I am doing cookies for my favors, we are making them ahead of time and just freezing them and then taking them out and packaging the night before. I think im getting these boxes from the knot.

    ´The soda seems to match your overall wedding feling better, bright and modern! I would like the cookie mix in theory but I’m sure I would just leave it in the hotel when it came time too pack my bag as it has huge potential for spilling in a suitcase or breaking. I don’t like the coasters at all and somehow they seem too traditional for your modern wedding. Jones soda is fun and I just love that you could have lime and purple!

    I’d just make the cookies and use one cutter to make them in a shape of a heart. Two cookies per bag and done. We live in such a “fast food” world where we want everything HERE and NOW that I think not enough people will want to actually bake the cookies if you just gave them the mix.

    I love the sodas but I bet they won’t even make it home. Most people can use coasters, which makes them a great gift IMO.

    I like option #3 best because it would be something the guests would most likely use after the wedding – it does not matter if you have your name on it or not. Our favors were cigars for the men and earrings for the women.

    I would order 1 of the sets of coasters to make sure they are as good of a quality as you are thinking they are. It looks like those are the same on a site I bought from (when I was thinking of doing something different for the women) and the products were cheap looking.

    I like the jones soda idea but I think the easiest on the budget would be the cookies. Candy buffets can get expensive (is that what we’re talking about? or actual bars of candy?) Cookies or candy…. love them both.
