I'm having a destination wedding in Italy and want to give a little more for those that make the trip. But it's not quite a standard destination wedding, about 1/3 of the invited guests are from Italy (my FI's father and extended family lives there). So we will still have about 120 guests so I can't spend more for the favors than I would for a wedding at home.
All of that being said, I always leaned towards something that will last a while that people can use later and (hopefully) remember the fun time at our wedding. Glasses, luggage tags, bottle stoppers, bottle openers, etc. I like the idea of something useful, too.
But everyone says edible favors are the way to go. It just seems like people eat it - even if it's not particularly good chocolate/candy/whatever and then it's immediately gone and forgotten.
What am I missing? I feel like there must me something I'm not seeing which is why most people feel the opposite.
If it helps we plan on having a few different kinds of dessert besides cake. Does that change the answer?
