On the way out...

We are not doing favors for our guests. In place we have donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities and are placing frames with a notation on each table. However, we are setting up a table in the foyer of the reception manor with happy meal boxes filled with pens from the Ronald McDonald House and pictures of us volunteering. My fiance and I volunteer about 1o hours a week for the organization. As the guests leave we are also handing them packages of homemade chocolate chip cookies and water bottles with custom labels printed with our names and wedding date. Feedback please?:) Thanks!!!!

    The cookies and the water bottles are favors.  The donation is a bonus.That being said, it sounds fine.  What are you putting the cookies in?

    i din't even think of that. we're not trying to show off. I just didn't want people to think we're cheap and giving out water and cookies and free pens... haha maybe we'll sans the donation announcement.

    Favors are not required ever. Waterbottles and cookies are a gracious favor. The donations is lovely but totally unrelated to your guests and instead because this is a cause that matters to you as a couple.

    Favors aren't required, so the water and cookies and pens are MORE than generous of you. And if people have a problem with receiving those things, even after you've fed and entertained them and maybe given them free alcohol to boot, then they're selfish ingrates who need to take a long walk off a short pier.

    I'm with pp on the labels on the water bottles.  It's a lot of effort for little gain.  I mean really.....I'm going to drink the water and then toss the bottle in the nearest trash can.  I really don't see the point of labeling them with your names or monogram.Give the cookies, the water, the pens.  Give the donation:  just don't worry about advertising it.
    "Trix, it's what they/our parents wanted. Why so judgemental? And why is your wedding date over a year and a half ago? And why do you not have a groom's name? And why have you posted over 12,000 posts? And why do you always say mean things to brides?" palegirl146
