I didn’t realize that Coozies were so polarizing!
We made up coozies for our engagement party in Chicago. We want to throw a party for our friends that we see day to day because with our enormous families, it will be impossible to have all the friends that we love travel to upstate NY next May
Chad & I met playing sports & everyone we know uses and loves coozies. It was really easy to design on CustomInk. Especially now that the weather is finally cooperating with us and we can grill outside and use coozies again

I ordered Koozies for our wedding from Etsy, I loved the way they turned out. We are getting married on a farm and will be having an outdoor wedding. Thought these would be use for during the wedding and after

What’s polarizing about it?

- Wedding: August 2013 - Rocky Mountains USA
@mockblock: People are always saying how much they hate favors with people’s names and wedding date on em, while others love koozies.
@k8: I’m firmly in your camp. I LOVE the collection of wedding koozies we have and use them often. We designed some super cute ones for our wedding, and if some people don’t like them, they can leave them – I’ll take the leftovers!

@mockblock: there was a thread about favors & some people said that they loved coozies and others said that they were Tacky McTackerson
@psa22: I LOVE those! We are getting married on my parents’ farm in upstate NY next year. We were thinking we’d send the leftover coozies from the engagement party along with save the dates to our faraway friends/relatives who would appreciate them

Why not do a coozie that has a cool on-theme design that isn’t your name/wedding date? I personally don’t use them, nor do I know anyone who does, but if your friends use them, that could be good. I still don’t like things with people’s names/wedding date on them, though!

Darling Husband and I both work for a promotional company and see waaaaaaaaay too many of these things, so personally I’m not really a fan. I forbid Darling Husband from even bringing home any from work, lol.

I like them, our wedding is just too small. An order of 20 is not worth it.

We met playing sports & invited most of our teammates to our engagement party. And that skyline is the actual Chicago skyline & the colors are the colors of the Chicago Flag. If people don’t like stuff with names/dates, we’ll keep the leftovers! Our party is on Memorial Day weekend.
Chad & I had our first date after the end-of-league party in our Fall 2011 ultimate frisbee league. Lots of our guests are from the ultimate frisbee community so I think they will mostly like vs mostly dislike them (the second date is the day we got engaged). Besides I can send the extras to people like my crazy cousins who will be stoked to have more coozies.
@crayfish: that’s a great idea for the actual wedding! We’re going to have 100 people at the engagement party (coworkers, neighbors, friends – adds up fast) & prob 200ish at the wedding. I was thinking at first to print up frisbees but to print up about 100 game-quality discs was outside the price point I’d budgeted for. Coozies seemed like a great last min option & I didn’t have to do photoshop or anything to make them on CustomInk. They even had the Chicago skyline image in their clip art.
@Westwood: I used to work in marketing so I know exactly what you mean! I only keep coozies from festivals & special events, not ones that say “Bob Smith’s Real Estate Company” or other randomness.
