    I love the tile.  They are so pretty.  I love coasters.  I agree with Mrs.DG, nuts are not the best idea because of allergies.

    i picked the tile. originally i was thinking nuts, until i saw ms. dg’s post. the mexican cookies sound like too much effort and i think people would love a souvenier.

    I just voted for the tile coasters and now it’s tied between the coasters and the pecans.  I think either way you’ll be just fine.  I like the coasters because they match the venue and I think people would use them.  As long as your names/faces/wedding date isn’t all over them.  But the pecan’s sound yummy and I’m sure everyone will eat them.  Don’t stress it!  Have a great wedding!!

    I would go with either the pecans or the tile. I love Mexican Wedding Cookies but do you really want to be baking so close to the wedding? Check with the airline before you try to ship food in your luggage to see if they even allow it on board. Not to mention, they could easily be all broken by the time you land unless you have them well padded.

    As far as nut allergies, both edibles contain nuts. While I do agree that generally it is better to be safe than sorry, how many of your guests actually have those allergies to even be concerned with?

    As for the coaster, most people in real life will use it as a functional item or else put it on display and it doesn’t matter if it doesn’t go with the rest of their decor. The majority of people are not so picky that they can’t find a use for it somehow since it is a functional item that is also decorative.

    Your guests will be happy no matter what you choose.

    i personally love the tile b/c i like those sorts of tiles but for traveling guests, pecans are the best. they can consume it at the airport / on flight back since no one serves food these days.

    if you want something that will last, go with the Wedding Coasters.

    However, I’m a glutton, so I would choose the food Tongue out

    What on earth would you do with one coaster? Don’t most people have a set?

    I vote pecans!

    In my opion food favors are the best and most loved favors. Can I just put my two cents in? And this is just for me, you might want to have a sugar free or sugar alternative option avaiable. I am a diabetic so I know what its like to go to parties and such and not be included. (Nothing fancy, just a suggestion)

    I voted for the cookies! I will always vote for food favors… the tile is fun, but I wouldn’t know what to do with it. One coaster would look out of place to me & get stuffed in a drawer.

    I love the tile idea, very unique to the southwest!  Out of curiosity, were would you be ordering your tiles from?  Plus I ate too many of that type of cookie as a kid and still can’t look at them.
