What do you think of these for favors?

I think they are really cute and go with my theme. I'd do something else for the kids though!  What do you guys think?

Re: What do you think of these for favors?

  • i really like those! great idea!!!!
  • Those are really cute!

    I'm not sure about as a favor though, it might just go to waste. I know in our house we have 5 bottle openers and a starfish wouldn't really "go" in our kitchen so we would probably just not take it home.

    Sorry to be a downer! I just don't want you to spend money on something and have a ton of leftovers or something!!!

  • Hey Chrissy no hard feelings! Thats why I asked! I think they are really cool but I don't know if everyone should get one or 1 per couple or if people would use them or what. I think they are pretty and I'd use one but like you said I don't know if its for everyone.

    We are considering a candy buffet but I feel like that could get expensive. I also thought about making starfish shaped cookies but I don't know if I'll be as willing to make them when the time comes!

    I know I definitely have time to figure out favors so I'm not stressing. I was just curious. Anyone have any other ideas?

  • i love them!  if i got one as a favor at someone's wedding, i would think it was a great idea.  i would guess you would do one per couple.  True, they wouldn't necessarily go with everyone's kitchen, but it's not like it has to be left out on the counter all the time.  i think they are really clever!

  • I also love them!! I think that its a really cool idea, especially if people like to entertain, it would be perfect for a 'beach party'.

    i think Chrissy brings up a really good point tho; and as an alternate suggestion maybe could you do two or three different favors?  maybe the bottle opener, and one more that could be 'traded'?

    I think the cookies sound like a great idea. As other boards/people have said, edible flavors seem to be the ones that are "worth it".

    I think your starfish cookie idea sounds really cute! FI and I had heart cookie flavors are our engagement party and they were all gone by the end of the night. If you look into it, it might be cheaper than the bottle opener. Ours were iced in our party colors and had J&C on them, you could do that with starfish as well.

  • I think that they are adorable but I think that I like the cookie idea better also. I feel that everyone loves a little sweet treat!

    I think we are going to have my grandmother bake her "famous" chocolate chip cookies and fudge and use them as favors :)

  • those are really cute, but do agree with previous posts that the cookie idea sounds better and I mean who doesn't love cookies = )

  • Yeah, while I also love the cookie idea, I worry about you having time the week of the wedding. It'll depend on your guys' schedule. Whether or not you have to travel anywhere for the wedding, if there'll be a ton of last-minute stuff, etc. If you're ontop of everything else, you shouldn't have too much to do the week before the wedding. I'm sure you could find like half a day to bake and decorate. And I bet some friends or family members would love to help out.
  • What about sea-inspired chocolates? Smaller, probably quicker, and won't go stale. You could make them ahead of time, more than a week, and package them, don't require baking. Just a thought.


    If you can find sea-inspired metal cookie cutters, put them on a cookie sheet, fill with chocolate & appropriate sprinkles (looking like sand?), freeze, then store in plastic bags. I did this for a holiday party a while back with holiday cookie cutters, and everyone loved them. Just make sure they are "smaller" cookie cutters, ie 2 inches or so, and then you don't need a lot of chocolate. One per couple is fine if cost is an issue.

  • I worry about chocolates for an Aug wedding in MD. I KNOW they'll melt!

  • Well, if you found someone to do them around the same price as the bottle openers, would you be able to work with it?

    If you aren't working the week before the wedding and had another person to help, and depending on the size of your guest list it's 100% doable. If your guest list is 150, that's 12.5 dozen at about 15 minutes a piece, so say you can fit 2 cookie sheets in the oven on the same rack...that's about 2.5 hours of cooking. I would try and find a big cookie cutter so that the cookies are like 3 or 4 inches long, that way you only have to bake one per person.

  • I too would go for edible favors. The bottle openers are cute, but not everyone will use them.

    Maybe you could do baggies of caramel corn?

  • I like the idea of giving something edible.

    I thought about making chocolate covered oreos for our favors. There are molds (usually for making soap) that are perfect for oreos. I'm not sure if I'll have the patience the week of the wedding though! We'll see :)
