Every thread I’ve seen on WB regarding favors has (generally) come to the consensus that guests don’t really care about favors. In the end, they just want to have a fun and memorable evening full of great company, food and drinks.

Im sure your favor will work wonderfully. Care to post pics?

I think any favor is great. I hate going to a wedding where they have nothing.

Honestly whilst the two items are cute I would leave them behind on the table. I am not a fan of things with other peoples names and wedding date on them.

Don’t worry about other people, it’s nice that you’ve chosen them to come along to such an intimate, important day!

Those are cute!!!  We did Koozies, but here in the South everyone loves a good Koozie/Hugger. 

However in talking with my wedding planner throughout the process she honestly was trying to sway me from favors and said a lot of people really don’t do them anymore. I felt a little weird about it and when a little bit of money freed up, I decided I’d try and find a good deal on Something!  Found 100 koozies for less than $100 with custom design and rush ordering and was super happy with how they turned out! 

 

That being said though….out of the weddings I’ve been to over the past couple of years I really could have cared less about the favors.  The only one I really still have is a fleur de lis wine stopper (and honestly can’t remember what wedding it came from) that I love as Darling Husband and I love NOLA and are huge Saints fans.

i like getting useful things as favors, so i like the magnet idea. and while i think the origami flower itself is cool, it would probably get smashed in my purse on the way home from the wedding and end up getting tossed 🙁

As a PP said, at the end of the day, if you didnt’ hand out favors at all, no one would miss them. (And there are some traditional etiquette gurus who are against them altogether, as a wedding is an adult affair, not a child’s birthday party–in which case, favors are given to kids in order to take the edge off of not getting a pile of presents like the birthday kid. Adults don’t really need that, one hopes.)

So the question of whether they are “lame” or not really amounts to preference. I hate to sound harsh, but here is my honest opinion: the only favors that I thought were worth it were things that I could eat. Everything else was something that amounted to cluttering up my house–keychains, bottle openers, frames, magnets, etc. so I typically just elect not to take them at the wedding. 

Now, that doesn’t mean that I’ve thought of a couple as “lame” for having a favor because it’s a seirously nice gesture. I’m not complaining; I wouldn’t complain if I were a guest at your wedding. It’s a matter of me being sort of indifferent regarding favors overall.

I agree, I love the magnet, But i don’t think the flower would last long.  I’m usually not a fan of favors with the couples name/date, but those magnets are small and cute, so I wouldn’t mind those at all

As a guest, I could care less what the favors are or if they even exist. Don’t stress about it!
