mgbser: I suppose since we are doing a “midnight table” filled with sweets and little savoury treats, a cookie at the end of the night would not be necessary! We might still do some, but only if we can find something simple, meaningful, and affordable! Thanks for your input!
Mattyfeets: I totally understand the dislike for monogrammed/personalized favours as oposed to personal favours – if that makes sense! We were looking at either coffee bags because we met a coffee shop, some sort of cookie or cupcake, or I was going to mabe make some homemade strawberry jam. The nicest (and happens to be most expensive) is the jam…I would be heartbroken to make 100 jars of jam with little labels and stuff to then have half left behind. Thanks for the input, it’s appreciated!
nessdawwg: Thanks for your input on the issue! I went to my first wedding without favours last weekend – which sparked this internal debate, I think…The favours we have received were either really nasty tasting candy/cupcakes or silly little trinkets we’ll never use…I didn’t mind not getting one at all (what I didn’t like, however, was the lack of thank you speech from the bride and groom) Any examples of favours that could be cute accoridng to you?
CurlyCue: Yeah! I have heard that it’s really something that need to be practically shoved down people’s throats to have them remember to bring it home in most cases…unless it’s something big like a bottle of wine or something (which is ridiculous!) Thanks for your input! It’s appreciated!
MrsBeck: At your wedding, how were the chocolates presented? On the table, as an escort card? On a separate table near the exit? Thanks for your input, it’s very much appreciated!
julies1949: Thanks for your input! I am starting to see that your statement is indeed correct, as most care little to not at all about the favours!
hazyleyedbeauty: We were already doing a photobooth station, but without instant pictures…Come to think of it now thanks to you, we may send out our thank yous with the photobooth pictures as well as a few other pictures of those guests throughout the evening…that would mean more to our guests than a cookie or a trinket! It would also be cheaper, since pictures tend to cost about 20 cents to print…AND we’re splurging on an awesome photographer, may as well benefit from her talent and make her pictures the favour! Thanks for the input!
Miss_E_xx: Awww! That’s an awesome useful idea! We’re going to have a sweet & savoury “midnight table” with some homemade bites (like cake pops, cookies, tourtieres, etc.) as well as a coffee/tea bar after dinner during the dancing…I suppose all that can be better than a cookie in a plastic cellphane wrapper thing with a monogrammed sticker on it! LOL! Thank you so much for the input!
