I need 200 favors for a open church bridal shower. The female members from my congregation & surrounding congregations all come together, even though they aren’t invited to the actual wedding… Because I need so many, all of the non-edible favors work out to roughly the same price. The cheapest options are obviously the food ones.
I’ve seen some pretty expensive favors at some of these showers, but I’m not planning on spending more than $1.50- $2.00 per person 🙂
Please pick the favor that you’d want to take home!
2. Candle (it comes with the bow & tag too!)
3. Coasters (2)… but really, who needs only 2 coasters? I just know that this will fit the theme of the party. Pretty, pink & Spring!
4. Cookies w/ a pretty pink bow
5. Tins filled with mints for “church candies”. Every little old lady in the church has a stash of candies they give out… so its practical.

I vote for edible favours, always. I wouldn’t want anything emblazoned with another woman’s shower date or another couple’s wedding date. The only favours I’ve ever taken home from a shower or wedding was food; otherwise it was left on the table.

Since its a church one and 200! .. I know the ladies at my old church would seriously love cookies or anything edible! they demolish them like no tomorrow! go edible! and how nice of you to give them favors. Is it a custom or tradition?

Favors are never required for any occasion. But edibles are always best if you decide to have them. In that case, I would go with the cookies since nearly everyone loves those.

the candle :).
then soap as my 2nd choice.
Those are pretty reusable, 2 coasters is kinda an odd number (thou they are cute). Generally cookies & candies, you don’t know if people are allergic to something or can’t have sugar, etc.

Ok then I re-read your post… I thought these were options for a wedding favor (yes, even thou you underlined bridal shower). I’ve never heard of bridal shower favors. Cute idea, but I wouldn’t ever expect a favor at a bridal shower. If you don’t have the money, I wouldn’t get favors. I mean, if you WANT to, then by all means do that. That’s about $400 to go to your shower! I don’t know that you’re expected to give them anything. But if you want to, then go for it :).

@Ciarrai: I’m not personalizing anything! I hate those kinds of favors too 🙂 lol
It’s tradition for the brides in my church to bring favors for the shower guests… especially since they aren’t invited to the wedding. It’s a small thank you for all their prayers, love & support! I’m totally happy to do it… I just want it to be something people will actually USE or take with them!
I once got a silver clock at one of these showers! I cringe at the thought of how much those cost.

I chose the cookie because that’s the one I would most likely pick up and take home with me.

Normally, I vote for anything edible. But if it’s a group of women from church, I say go for something cute and girly, like the soap!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…. cookies are a crowd pleaser 🙂

Scrolling through, I was like “COOKIE – YUUUMM!” so I picked that one! The others are pretty though – but you can’t really go wrong with something yummy!
