Ladies, I need help on which favour to get.
Looks like the general consensus on the Bee is that if we must give favours, edible ones are the best. So which edible/drinkable favour would rather you rather receive as a guest?
#1 Macarons – will be in pairs per guest
#2 Sugar Cookies – will do a bigger sized one. If smaller, will give pairs per guest
#3 Fortune Cookies – will give around 2-3 per guest
#4 Mini Bottle of Bubbly – will give 1 per guest
Things to consider
– there will be about 100 guests
– I’m planning the wedding celebration from afar, so won’t be able to taste them. Will order them based on reviews
– event will be fusion Asian
– all of the options above will be customised accordingly
What do you think? Which one would you prefer? If you have any alternative ideas or (any suggestions really), do let me know. I’m stumped.

I’m torn between the macarons or the sugar cookie. Both are amazing when done well but can be a bit bland if they’re not good quality. Definitely scour the reviews. I would say definitely no to the fortune cookie for me personally. A small bottle of champagne is nice..but I’d prefer nibbles.

Liquids are no good for people flying in, and I find people leave favors that can’t be eaten right then. Macaroons seem the tastiest to me, but can be bland and for some reason lots of people I know avoid them?? Sugar cookies tend to be the prettiest, but at the cost of flavor. Fortune cookies sound cute, especially since I assume you could customize the fortunes, but seem like the biggest money waste as people crack them open and leave the cookie.
Writing it out, I sound like a downer! Guess I’m in the no favors camp, but if you must, my vote is for the macaroons.
