for me as the bride to give favors to the guests at my bridal shower? I am not planning the shower and have nothing to do with throwing it. I asked for a lingerie shower (women only) because we are older and have many of the things new couples need to start a home. Lingerie is something we can both enjoy.
Anyway, I found the cutest little corset shaped soaps on Etsy and I thought they would make adorable favors/gifts to the guests and a thank you for coming. Is this inappropriate?

No that is not inappropriate at all!! I think you can do what you want at your shower.

Absolutely not…that sounds great. Go for it!!

I think that would be a lovely gesture, and a nice surprise to the other guests!

I’d clear it with the hostesses. If I were to have done this, my hostesses would’ve thought that I was stepping on their toes ("She thinks that I can’t handle the shower favors??").

I agree. check with the hostess, but otherwise, there’s no problem.

I think it’s a really cute idea and it would be a sweet thank you for the people who come.

What Etsy shop? They sound great!
And I agree – clear it with the hostess 🙂 Or, just get one (or a few in different scents?) for her as a "thank you for hosting!" I think that would be really sweet and you wouldn’t have to worry about whether it was appropriate.

Thank you Punkin325! I am glad you liked my soaps!
Yes, I am a new business on Etsy, but I have been selling my bridal and baby shower soap favors for over a year on Ebay!
If you would like to order my adorable Corset Soaps please go to 2cute4youfavors.etsy.com or e-mail me at [email protected]. They are only $1.00 each!

I guess I’m in the minority here but I think its ok to get the favors. I bought and assembled my own bridal shower favors because I was concerned with the amount of money my Bridesmaid or Best Man would ultimately end up spending on the entire wedding. BUT I did let her know in advance and told her I’d handle favors and why (and she was fine w/ it). Good luck!
