I think you’ll have a ton leftover. Most people don’t want to be drinking out of a glass with someone else’s name and wedding date on it. The chocolates I would eat though!  Sorry but that’s my honest opinion.

Yeah, I would eat the chocolate and leave everything else. Why is your wedding dry?

I think it’s a cute idea bee. Some people like hanging onto this type of memento, while others will probably toss it in the bin. You can’t please everyone! The goodies will certainly be appreciated though.

I would probably take it home to keep everything together but then toss the cup. We have our own cups and one more would just add to the clutter. I’m also not keen on having things in my house with someone else’s name / date on it. I would keep the bottle opener and give the bubbles to the nearest kid at the reception.

mingogo :  i’d take the booze, drink it, cruise the reception and see what other booze i can gather from guests who aren’t drinking theirs, and then leave the rest behind.

If you’re having a party at a bar after the I think the airplane bottles are a little redundant and overkill. Any favor with the bride and grooms names always feels weird and always gets tossed or goes completely unused until found in a junk drawer years later and then tossed lol. 

I just don’t think favors in general are necessary at all. From how I see it, people are typically there to enjoy your day with you and enjoy the food you provide.

I would prefer the non personalized version if I’m being honest.

I’d eat the chocolate and drink the booze.  I’d leave the other stuff behind.

If I was a guest I would know that I’m not fitting the cup in my tiny clutch bag that I’m using for the occasion, so it’s not going between venues with me and will be left on the table. I’ll drink the booze, eat the chocolate and if you’re lucky I may have the bottle opener if I can squeeze it in that tiny gap I have left in my bag.

I’d take the chocolates.  I don’t drink alcohol enough to make the booze worthwhile, therefore I don’t need a bottle opener.  I’ve got no use for bubbles or someone else’s personalized cup.

I thikn it’s nice that you’re planning a selection though.

Everything but the booze and chocolate would get tossed by me.  

Most adults not just out of college have enough cups and start tossing the random ones out in favor of their dish set.  I also don’t want a cup with other people’s names and wedding date.  In the last two years I have seen three such cups/water bottles get “accidentally” left behind in the break room at work on cleaning day and tossed.  And I already have a bottle opener that is a multipurpose tool – my kitchen is small enough as it is – I don’t like things that only have one use that I would only use once a month maybe junking up my kitchen drawer.
