texaslemon:  I must not use them because I don’t even know what it is! I’m all for edible favors because I’ve gotten ice cream scoops, wine openers (okay, that I used), and pie servers and such with their names engraved on them and I really didn’t use them.

I love koozies and I don’t think you can ever have too many. It’s nice to be able to provide them for people when you have a cookout or something.

<br />I don’t really care for them. Plus I’m over them too! If I’m going to a football game or any sports events I usually buy koozies with my team logo on them. I have a lot just in a drawer never used.

We did a candy bar, for my daughter’s wedding, and about 1/3 of it was left over. We didn’t stay, in order to wait for the candy lady to bag up the excess and take home. I told the staff to take it. It represented about $100 wasted, on $350 spent, but oh well …

Maybe I’m the odd man out but I carry a koozie in my purse at all times. I’m not saying I use it all that often but it’s always there when I need it. We did koozie favors but in a different sorta way. Ours were http://www.freakusa.com and we had 150 of the white lace ones and 150 of the tuxedo print. They’re american made and can fit on anything. Everyone loved them! Keep in mind I’m from the south…I feel like we tend to get extra attached to our koozies, haha!

As a side note, ours didn’t have anything personal on them such as a wedding date or our names. Those kind of koozies I usually just throw in a drawer but I think if you don’t personalize them then your guest are more than likely going to reuse them.

texaslemon:  Our chair cover rental company did it. After contracting for the covers & sashes they gave us a discount on the candy bar, to less than $3.50 each. At least the venue let us do it that way; my first daughter’s venue offered to do it for them, at $10 each, for 225 guests, and I said “NO WAY!”

There are a lot of threads on here, about how to do candy bars at a reasonble price. Half-priced candy is always available in grocery stores, after holidays. Containers can be purchased at dollar stors, etc.

texaslemon:  I’ve never been to a wedding that had them, so I say go for them! I would totally just chuck it in my utensil drawer and use during cookouts, etc.
