    They are very cute but I would never use them. I have all stainless steel magnets to go with the rest of my kitchen.

    There are not many favors I can think of other than edible favors, that I haven’t either left at the wedding, or placed in the box for the thrift shop after I got home.

    I think the magnets are cute, but our fridge is actually magnet and clutter free. 

    I went with an edible favour.

    Unless the favor is edible, it’s a waste of money. I’ve never taken a non-edible favor from a wedding. With that said, there are some edible favors that I feel are a waste of money too (i.e. any edible favor that can be purchased from a craft store a good year before the wedding date – I’ve broken a tooth on these damn candies!).

    ETA: We’re giving our guests orchard mini apple pies to go along with our fall theme. I dont foresee anyone leaving these behind but if they do, I’ll gladly eat them! =)

    Truth is you cant please everyone with favors… Just go with the option you feel represents you the best. I usually eat my edible favors while i’m at the wedding lol, otherwise they just end up going stale on my kitchen table.. some magnets i have kept and others have somehow gotten lost. I have a giant collection of candle favors that Just sit around and I dont do much with. But i still appreciate to whatever the couple decides to give. Moral of the story = all favors have pros and cons

    Since we’re having a photo booth that guests can take unlimited photos in, that will be their favor.  It’s the best thing that I can think of that will make their night memorable. 

    I’m not a big fan of edible favors.  I mean, as a guest you’ve just been fed almost 3 meals of food by the end of the night and you’re like “Oooh, MORE food, just what I wanted!” No, not really.

    I voted for edible favors as I’m thinking to have edible favor for my wedding.

    If you don’t mind I’m asking, what’s your budget on wedding favors? If you go for edible favor, you can go for Godiva chocloate; they have favor starting from $4 per person. There are other chocolate brands (Godiva grade) that cost a little if you want something more unique.

    P.S the magnet idea is great too.

    My favorite favors have always been edible, like cookies and candies.

    i like and would use a magnet like that, but a lot of people have stainless refrigerators that aren’t magnetic. i heard a lot of gripes about that after i sent my magnet Save-The-Date Cards, so unfortunately i think these would be a waste of money.

    i think donations instead of favors are fine! it’s different than giving someone a card that says “for your birthday, we made a donation to xyz in your name” because at a wedding, people don’t so much expect gifts. that being said, you can never go wrong with an edible favor. is there a korean cookie or candy you can give out?
