personally, as a guest, it sounds like a lot of work. writing out a recipe then mailing it? no time… i’m totally a no frills guest… i’ll show up and bring a gift but don’t expect much else!

I love the recipe idea!  We gave our BM/GM couples a ‘date in a box’ last Christmas and included one of our favorite recipes with a hard-to-find ingredient (example– Chicken Piccata with a little bottle of capers). 

I think a recipe card with a picture of the dish is perfect and good for men and women– good for a date/special meal.  Especially if you use one of your favorite recipes as the one to give away and maybe include sprinkles if it’s cupcakes or a cookie cutter, etc.  Or even the dry ingredients in a mason jar…

I also love the idea of collecting recipes and even if not everyone gives you one, you’ll probably get enough for a small cookbook (especially since you can ask people–like very extended family–for recipes even if they are not coming/invited to the wedding).  A copy of that cookbook might not only be a good memento for you, but a good thank you gift for BM/GM/parents.

I think the recipes are a great idea. People whot don’t want to or don’t have the time won’t send them to you, but I’m sure lots of your guests will send something back, even if it’s something simple. You might pick 3 of your favorites and then pick 3 of your favorites from your guests; that way, you don’t have to worry about finding 6 good ones from the pile (although I bet you will!). I think men and women will both like this favor…I know lots of guys who can cook, or who would want some woman to cook a dish for them. ; )

I have to second kbok and the other ladies who have commented. First of all, your guests won’t really care all that much what the favor is…they’re just glad to be celebrating with you! I wouldn’t worry about having something special for the men and the women. There are a lot of men who cook and would love some new recipes…I think it’s a great idea!
