Engagement Party - DIY Favors?

Hi ladies, we are doing our engagement party Feb 4th. We are just doing a casual cocktail party and incorporating our wedding colors and logo. I feel like we should send people home with favors, but I'm not sure what. I was considering chocolates, since it's close to vday or making some fudge and boxing it up. Any ideas/suggestions? Skip the favors?

    You don't need to have favors for an engagement party.  



  • Yeah, I'd skip the favors.

    Was wondering this also!



  • i live at the beach so the engagement party favors was salt water taffy. it was really cute in a mini brown bag with a sand castle on it and threaded closed with ribbon. you definitly do not need favors though. if you decide to though i'd go with food. i'm not a fan of "knick knack" favor anyways.. i dont like just random stuff in the house and most people junk it anyways. just my opinion.
  • Yes, we've decided to plan and throw our engagement party. My parents offered, but they are helping so much with the wedding, we told them we'd do it. My sis-in-law and bro are pitching in to help with it. I know traditionally the parents do it, but we're doing it a little different. I definitely won't be involved in the planning of my bridal/bachelorette activities though :)
  • @marisa I am not a fan of those either. Something edible is definitely a good idea. Thanks for the input!

    Just going to throw it out there . Etiquette-wise, throwing any of your own pre wedding parties is a big no no, and could be viewed by your guests as tacky. You make the choice as you will, but I'm letting you know now. It's not that "the parents" traditionally do it, it is that the party is suppose to be in your honor and it's against etiquette to throw a party in your (own) honor.
