@masterteee2013: we are doing koozies as our favor!
they can use it at the wedding and take it home!

- Wedding: September 2012 - Southern California
We used them as favors & our guests have enjoyed them from what I’ve heard ;]. With that said thougn, cool cups are very much “our crowd.” On top of that, our wedding was outdoors & not so modern/fancy as yours sounds.

The one thing that my Fiance keeps talking about are Koozies for favors. I figure I can’t say no if he really wants them (and he will be paying for a lot of the wedding since I don’t make much at all!). Plus, a lot of our friends and family are beer drinkers so why not give them something useful that will remind them of us??

There obviously isn’t one right or wrong answer to koozies as wedding favors. I think regional culture plays a role in shaping attitudes to koozies. I’m from Texas and I’m having a pretty formal/traditional wedding in Texas. Regardless of formality, Texas “folk” culture tends to assert itself in events. I think formal events can include what might seem to be a quirky kitsch nod to a particular cultural identity.
For me, koozies make sense in a certain context. We’re playing off the fact that our wedding will take place on TX independence day, so an artist is designing koozies that riff on the font and language used in the TX Declaration of Independence. That probably sounds insane to some people, but I think everyone has a version of folk culture that can translate to “high class”….which is a completely subjective concept anyways. There will be other historians in attendence besides myself, so in the history nerd context, our koozie graphics make sense. Silly stuff like koozies are also a way to interject a playful, down to earth vibe. Of course, that’s just my interpretation.
P.S. I’m aware of the ironic juxtaposition re: marriage/independence day. The koozie message serves yet another playful function. Koozies win again!

@masterteee2013: I was thinking the same thing! I’m contemplating buying koozies or not! I mean, the thing is.. that’s probably the one favor you don’t throw out LOL! I like it even though I’m having a very formal wedding.
