Re: Custom Koozies online?

  • I've used discount mugs before and had a great experience! Highly recommend. BTW everyone is going to tell you to skip this and get an edible favor instead, which is advice I highly disagree with. Koozies are my favorite favor and definitely a crowd pleaser for the right crowd. If you know this is something your crowd is into, you should do it.

  • I would be one of those people that would discourage this type of favour. I had three koozies from weddings that I've been to and just threw them all out. Edible is the way to go.

    If you do decide that your crowd would appreciate them, avoid personalizing them. If I ever did want to use a koozie, I'd want something generic.

    Keep in mind that a favour is something for your guests. I love shot glasses but we are not doing shot glasses for a favour as we know that very few of our guests would appreciate that as a favour. I may get one shot glass done for myself for my collection, but that is it.

    I hate koozies with the fire of 1,000 suns. 

    Please be sure this is something the majority of your guests would be interested in before buying them as a gift for them.

    I'm on the no koozies/no inedible favors boat, too. Like PPs have said, if you know your guests love koozies, go for it. Otherwise, go for something edible. 

    The best favors I've ever gotten at a wedding was the B&G set up a cookie bar. They had probably 10 flavors of cookies and little bags with their wedding info on them. They had plenty of cookies for everyone to have a couple. Best favor ever.

  • I don't really understand why people enjoy edible favors so much TBH. If I wanted candy or cookies or something I could buy them at the grocery store? What do they have to do with your wedding? I guess I'm not a huge dessert eater, but I just don't get why this is universal advice.

    I use koozies. I throw a few in my beach bag before I head out to the beach, one or two in my purse before I go to a concert or music festival, pack a few in the cooler before I head to a tailgate. They're casual, they don't like match my home decor, and they usually come from events (like weddings, big football games, etc.). If a large amount of your crowd is like this, those people will probably enjoy them. I don't think a lot of TK crowd is the crowd who enjoys koozies (generalizing, but it seems true), but that doesn't mean a lot of people wouldn't rather have a fun kitschy item to keep your beer cold than a cookie.

  • I agree with the majority of  PPs.  I don't use koozies.  I'm not anti-koozie, just indifferent.  Please think about whether or not this type of favor fits your guests, as the favor is a thank you for them.  It's not necessary that the favor be something about you/FI/your wedding.

    If you absolutely must do koozie favors, I'd stick with something generic.  No names or dates.  Maybe some silly word play or graphic, but definitely keep the personalization minimal.  

    I love getting local favors - maybe a local cookie or chocolate, or even something like a spice blend.

    This is actually how I feel, too... I mean, if you want to have cookies at your wedding, great, but I really don't want a tiny bag of plain M&Ms, or some mints. I would be happy to take a cookie for the road, but to me, edibles don't really seem like "favors," per se. I think of a "favor" as a momento of the event, and edibles don't really fit my definition. (Just my unpopular opinion, of course.)

    I DO love koozies, so I would be happy with one. But we have so damn many pint glasses, shot glasses, wine glasses, and mason jars with people's names and wedding dates on them that we never use that just take up space. At my sister's wedding, they had wine glasses with their names and the date, and probably only about 30% of the guests actually took theirs with them at the end of the night. I am pretty sure sister and BIL still have a box of them in their garage, nine years later.

    But if you're sure your guests are all into koozies, then by all means, go with it. I would much prefer a koozie to glassware.

    Final note: You absolutely do not need to have a favor at all. H and I did not want to do something edible, and we knew many of our guests wouldn't want a pint glass or a koozie or some other BS, so we just skipped it. No one seemed to notice or care.

    I'm so glad someone else agrees with me! Every time I read a favor thread I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't really get why it's a "favor". FWIW, I like getting koozies with names and dates (and they're in my koozie drawer, lol), but my favorite favor I've ever gotten has been a succulent plant.
  • I second DiscountMugs - its where I got mine for our favors. We did a cutesy infinity sign with an anchor because we're getting married on the lake and most of our crowd are boaters and keep a bin of koozies on their boats.

    Anything you want you could buy yourself, though, so I don't understand that argument. 

    What did candy have to do with our wedding? Well, we used a lot of river rocks in our wedding: in the centerpieces, as escort cards, for guests to sign instead of a guest book. And our favors were chocolate rocks in little buckets. So yeah.

  • Totallypromotional.com is a great site. Very reasonable and they do offers from time to time. The set up is super nice and easy. I love Koozies. Mainly because I am always losing them and so I like cheap ones that I won't be upset if I lose it.

    There is such a thing as having too much stuff, which is why I prefer consumables. One less thing to end up in a landfill someday.
    I agree - which is why we just skipped favors altogether. Consumables just don't really fit my (admittedly narrow) definition of a "favor," which traditionally is a momento of the event.

    I'm sure many of your guests enjoyed them, sounds great! I would not have been interested in this. They wouldn't have bothered me or offended me, I just wouldn't have liked it. You wouldn't have liked my favor. So, yeah.
  • I ordered mine from here: www.totallyweddingkoozies.com  It was about $100 for 200 koozies and we got a free Bride and Groom koozie with our order. 

    My family is huge and is the majority of our guest list and they all love and use koozies on a regular basis, so this was a no brainier for our favor.  I get what some people are saying, but if it's something that you feel your crowd will enjoy, then go for it.
