    I prefer gifts people can keep and remember your wedding by, not ones they’ll eat on the spot or throw away when they get home.

    I LOVE the spice one! I don’t like organza bags.. maybe you could just put them in small tins? They are fairly inexpensive. I don’t know if you have ever seen or read the ‘Mistress of Spice’ but different spices have different meanings..(this is to sweeten your words…this is to always remember your love..etc) that would be very cute.. 🙂

    I picked #2.

    My parents did champagne flutes with their wedding date on it as their favor, and all of their friends still have them. They get a little chuckle out when they’re at a party and they see their favor floating around. It’s a great way for people to remember your event!!

    I voted for option number 1 because I prefer edible gifts. As cute as the wine glasses sound, I don’t think I’d want to receive this as a gift. First, they might be hard to transport back home (depending how far people are traveling). Second, if anyone has limited cabinet space, they might not want an odd wine glass that doesn’t match whatever other glasses they have. I once got as a favor a silver champagne flute engraved with the couple’s wedding date, but I got rid of it because, even though I love the couple, the date just doesn’t mean THAT much to me. Also, no room for an odd champagne flute on my shelves! BUT, I am admittedly crazy about stuff like this. 🙂

    I really like idea #2! It’s something everyone can use, plus I don’t like honey, Fiance doesn’t like tea, and we’re both picky with spices. Idea #1 is so cute but I think #2 will appeal to more people (:

    I would prefer getting the first one. I’d use it and it matches your theme. I’d probably end up tossing the wine glass. I’m not a nick knack collector, especially things that don’t have personal significance.

    @kala_way: agreed. I don’t like knick-nacks.. I wouldn’t display of use it.. and would toss it because I like my glasses and stuff to match and look cohesive when I open the cabinet.. but I may be a bit OCD lol

    I went to a wedding her favors were Maple Syrup cans. As we are in NE we have access to maple syrup. Also The groon sells maple syrup. This is the time of year they gather the sap and boil it down. Also Fashion Craft has great favors. They have one that is seed packets.

    I like the first one. But I’m not a wine drinker.

    First one. definetly

    The 2nd one is nice but I prob would throw it away eventually. It wouldn’t match my other glasses and I’m against favors that have dates that mean nothing to me.

    I prefer #1 as well, I think it’s really unique! Personally, I wouldn’t like the wine glasses, I don’t like wedding chachki’s and always end up throwing them out. Maybe a stamped burlap bag rather than organza though…

    I’m also a fan of edible favors vs. glassware/dishes/etc…just cause I don’t have a ton of cabinet space and commemorative glasses are usually the first to go when I’m purging my stash for Goodwill (even though it makes me sad to give them up!). It’s just hard to find space and if you only have 1 or 2 of a certain kind of glass, you can’t really use them for parties or anything. Also, I think your tea idea is super cute.

    I voted for #1.  I think that is a really cute idea, but also because I never know what to do with etched wine glasses.  Iv’e recieved one or two before but they don’t go with the rest of my set, its not like I’m going to pull them out when company comes.. it’s just weird to me.

    I voted 1 because I think it’s really sweet.

    I did not like 2 because I’m not a fan of kitschy wine glasses. Occasionally we’ll go on a wine tour that comes with a wine glass we’ll usually keep one for a little while then throw it out. I’m not a fan of mismatched wine glasses. And if it’s not my style then I’m def throwing it out.

    I think 2 is a better idea for the bridal party gifts.
