And unfortunately, no one else will want a Yeti with your wedding date or logo on it.  🙁

I imagine actually using one and the awkward questions and answers when people see me with it. It would end up at the Salvation Army. Food or flower bulbs always go over well.

ehh i wouldnt necessarily throw away a good yeti that i got for free, regardless of whats on it. Those things arent cheap, and i can imagine at least a very few people wouldnt throw away an expensive item.

I think I would have put a tag on them “I Do, Take Two” and used them anyhow.

Like PaperQueen said, people really don’t want personalized stuff with your wedding date or logo on it, even if it’s an expensive thing.

I guess I’m the oddball because I would definitely use a Yeti, regardless of the wedding date.

Forgive my ignorance, but what is a yeti cup? UK bee who thinks a yeti is a white furry thing that lives up in the mountains 😂

 khaleesi13 :  ahhh ok! Thanks for that 😊 sorry to hijack haha.

And to the OP. I would do what PP has suggested with the take two tag on it. Your guests will understand

PaperQueen :  Exactly.

i would get home and try everything to remove the personalization. 

In all my years of weddings with favors, I only have one candle holder in my bathroom. It was a generic holder with the candle personalized. The candle is long gone but the holder has been around 20 years.

smudgie :  I too have no idea what these things are! I also don’t understand her problem “hurricane happened and now the rest is history” so they didn’t get delivered because of storm ??? Why are you stuck with them? Please explain your post lol.

jayrock :  I assume OP meant that due to the hurricane landing, the original wedding date was cancelled, so the date she had inscribed is meaningless.

jayrock :  I think OP means they had to rearrange the whole thing.

I wouldn’t toss a good Yeti, but I wouldn’t really be thrilled about a date on it.  I’d have preferred some cheesy wedding related generalized line than something specific to a single couple.
