I’m having the hardest time with favors. I know most people like edibles, so I was thinking along those lines. My problem now is I’m afraid of having something clashing with the table decorations! Sounds lame, but we are having a very elegant wedding, and I want the table setting to look beautiful when the guests walk in, and not have some corny candy bag on the table.
I’m thinking I might do a menu card, and have the napkins folded in the pocket style, and then maybe slipping the menu card along with this tin of mints…but I’m afraid that might look stupid, too.
Where did you put your favors, and do you think its worth buying these?

@FutureDrZ: Actually that is super cute and I like the idea of tucking them into the napkins.

I <3 mint flavors (good mints not super cheap ones)! I think they are very practical.

I was all set to vote no when I clicked on this thread but those tins crack me up.

@figgnewton: i’m afraid they are going to be bad quality mints in a cute little tin… 🙁 i hate to buy a ton and they turn out to taste awful lol

I like it, because I would actually use it. Anything edible (and tasty) is a good choice!

I would also be worried about them being gross and low quality. I voted no.

Oooh the containers are super cute! Can you buy the containers and fill them with Mint M&M’s?

I would actually use this. Some of the small generic mints are actually quite good and super strong. Most recently, I got one from a Kimpton hotel and I actually keep it in the car. I would definitely try out the mints before gifting them.

I would taste them first if at ALL possible. But I think mints are a cute favor, my cousin & I were JUST talking about this last night. I would love to be able to do peppermint patties in a “mint to be” wrapper somehow

I think mints are pretty low-risk as far as flavour goes. Never once in my life have I tasted a mint and thought “yuck” There have been some that were better than others… but never bad. Like pizza. 😉

For my best friends wedding this past October which was a very elegant and over the top wedding we made “Mint To Be” favors by printing it out on cardstock then using a bender tool made them into matchbooks with a lifesaver mint stapled in. They were super cute!

@FutureDrZ: My advice; don’t waste any money buying favors and don’t spend any time worrying about them. Nobody ever really cares about favors.

Favors are never necessary so you can’t really get them wrong unless they could be offensive (such as “donation in lieu of favor ‘favors'”)
