LoveMyBrit: M&Ms and hersheys kisses are always gone before we leave, but I wouldn’t have noticed if I didn’t have them. I only ate them because they were in front of me. but personally I think it’s a waste of money if they are getting cake.
Based on the responses, I think it would be safer to go without the koozies. i know our friends would love them and use them (as we would at any wedding we attended) but many of our guests are our parents age or older and probably would not take them.
I wanted to do the donation thing, because I am a very big proponent of the SPCA and it’s kind of a “thing” in my famly, but I also read on here most people would be offended. I honestly do not want to spend my money on hersheys kisses or pens that will stop writing in a day, so maybe we will go without favors. Saves $$ anyway. We shall see!!
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.
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.
