I have tons (like 25+) of koozies and love them…but I’m also less than a year out of college. If the majority of your guests are in this demographic or just really like their koozies, then sure, go for it! Otherwise, I’d leave the koozie trend in the past 🙂

I think you should think the majority of your guests and what they would like. If you have a majority of all your guests that are young drinkers go for it. If you have any sort of mix of young and old, do something different. If you are going for elegant..uh definitely not.
Personally, I don’t like them, have never used them, don’t know anyone that uses them and if given this would probably eye roll them and leave them there. Sorry.

We are from the south, and my Fiance and all his friends love koozies. I personally would love to get rid of about half of the ones we already have. We have over 100 easily. However, we will be doing koozies for our wedding too. Just because. And I agree with whoever said it; take aways are not necessary at all. I think it’s something someone added one day and now all weddings have to have them.

I rather have something edible. I hate koozies, just got some and want to throw them out.

We honestly probably have at least 50 koozies…but that’s what we did for our favors, too! I love koozies. We keep a few in our car, we use them when we go boating, when we got tailgating, when we’re sitting outside, when we’re sitting inside, etc. If people don’t like them, they don’t have to take them. We’re serving canned beer at our reception, so people can at least use them while they’re there. As other people have said, it probably depends on if you’re a koozie person.

I went to a wedding this summer where koozies were the favor- we didn’t take one home

I honestly don’t want much of anything with someone else’s name on it to use around the house. I think most favors end up in the junk drawer or the trash. I agree that edible is the way to go, that way (almost) everybody can enjoy.

Edible is much more practical! I think can coolers are a little tacky to be completely honest. My Fiance has one favorite that he uses every day but really have no need for more than a that and maybe a couple spares. Plus like PPs said you get to eat the leftovers!!

Agree with pp. Base it off your crowd. You could be surrounded by 100 koozie enthusiasts and it would be a great gift.
Me? I don’t think i’ve ever owned a koozie and have never seen a family member or friend use one. Also Fiance is a big drinker but he hates them so this would be a no for me!

Koozies just add up. I never use them. I would do candy or pen favors.

I echo the majority here – skip the koozies. IMHO they scream “redneck”.
Post # 27
It depends on your guests. My family wouldn’t have known what they were; my husband’s family and our friends would have liked them. I don’t think they’re “redneck”, just not formal/classy in a way that weddings often are.
But like…would your Auntie Gracie know what to do with one? How about Grandpa Joe?

I cannot stand koozies and I don’t know why anyone would want one

We really like koozies! Fun to give out random ones when we have people over. To each their own.

I don’t drink so I am def not a koozie person and neither is my SO. If we were into that stuff i highly doubt we would want one with someone elses wedding date, names, etc on it. Same goes for shot glasses or any other engraveable or printable favor thing to give out. I would go with your Fiance on this one and choose the edible route. You really can’t go wrong with some candy. Lol
