i’d worry about how guests would get them home – a glass with milk residue isn’t the easiest/nicest thing to tuck away in a purse or pocket or have to hang onto.

$3.50 seems like a lot for a snack, but what does it cover?  is it just the charge for the glasses or does it include the milk, the servers and/or the cookies?

another milk & cookies option would be to pack it up lunchbox style and get those cute little milk cartons, perhaps bagged up with a cookie or two for the road?

I have actually ordered from discountmugs.com (beer mugs for a party) and I was VERY happy with both their customer service and their product.

I actually sent them a kind of difficult custom graphic and they cleaned it up beautifully and the mugs came out great.

Good luck!

That’s a really cute idea, and I’m definitely thinking of doing milk & cookies, too!  But it’s always a little awkward when you have to take something home that’s had food/drink in it, even if they’ve already drunk the milk. I wish I could think of a better suggestion but can’t – just wanted to offer my opinion.

FWIW, I really like the milk carton idea, or you could use cute Dixie cups. Then you’re stuck without favors, though (not a big deal, but part of your original plan).

I have to say that if I was given that as a favor and it had already been used, I would probably leave it at the wedding. I wouldn’t want to take home a glass that had old milk in it.

I think its a lovely idea…maybe there could be little napkins for the truly picky to wrap them in before stashing them in a purse, etc. People will find a way to get them home, I wouldn’t worry. I just went to a wedding that did the same thing and it was a HUGE hit. I would highly, highly recommend vaniilla ice cream instead of milk…they had both at this wedding and everyone went for the ice cream.

I meant to add that I love the idea, but I wouldn’t do it as the favor. If it’s a budget thing, I would skip the favor all together and just do the milk and cookies through the venue. It’s the details that people remember about the wedding, not what their favor was.

I think it’s a very cute idea, however is your venue still going to charge you to fill the glasses up during the reception? Will they do it then or ahead of time in which the milk would be old. Just some thoughts, but if you can figure it all out, it’s a damn cute idea!
