    I doubt people will use a mason jar with your wedding dates on them. Maybe that’s a know your crowd thing. If anyone here saw an empty jar they probably wouldn’t take it lol. So, I wouldn’t waste your money on that.

    If you already have your koozies (which again, doubt most people will use) I’d stick with that. Save your money and upgrade your bar or food choices.

    We did koozies too! Everyone liked them. I think koozies are enough. It’s one of the only favors that I’ve come across that you can have your name on it and people still use it.

    We also had a photo booth so people took that pic home too. We did match books (because we had sparklers). Also had late night to-go food for anyone who wanted it. Just mentioning those in case you’re doing something similar in case you feel like koozies aren’t enough (they are!! lol).

    Personally, I don’t think that the mason jars are very useful… Mine would probably end up in the “donate” pile at my house. I would just go with koozies and move on! You’re probably overthinking this!! 

    Edit: I’m also probably biased because I use koozies a LOT because we’re constantly out on the lake, fishing, or tailgating. They definitely get used at our house.

    The bee is very divided on koozies. 

    If you have personalized koozies use those, it can be fun and cute and people can use them at the wedding and then take them home. 

    But having two personalized items will feel like a lot and I really don’t know when I would use a mason jar with your name on it antoher time.

    Personally, I wouldn’t use either one, so I think you should just stick with koozies and save your money. I think it depends on your crowd. Koozies are cute and a lot of people use them, I just don’t drink beer or soda from a can or bottle that would require a koozie.

    People probably won’t do anything with my favors. We chose personalized dice because we are gamers. They might get thrown away, but we liked them and it was inexpensive.

    Take it or leave it koozies should be fine. I don’t know many people who would take an empty jar home either unless it was a mason jar mug. (If that’s the case, I would add a heart-shaped chalkboard label to the front of it instead of your wedding date and a phrase. Let the guests customize it.)

    The best favors I’ve gotten have been edible. Other things I’ve enjoyed were a fleece wrap (which I cut up and repurposed) and a photobooth.  Favors that I’ve left/thrown away include koozies, mason jars, candles, mini frames, etc.  I’m sure some other guests enjoyed these, but I personally didn’t find any use for them.  That being said, I don’t think favors are really all that important when it comes to a wedding.

    val887:  No matter what, not everyone will like/use what you pick. I love koozies, but I know most people on the Bee don’t seem to share that opinion. Also, koozies aren’t just for alcohol. They’re for keeping drinks cold. I’ve used koozies with sodas and water bottles too.

    No one would want a mason jar with your names and date etched on it.  Stick with just the koozies, which I personally am not a fan of, I know many enjoy them

    I like koozies, but they are a thing here lol  I rarely drink alcohol but they are good for pop cans and stuff.  I would never use a mason jar with your name because I don’t use mason jars.
