Hi, I bought glass coasters that came 2 in a box for $1.99 per box from Bed Bath and Beyond. I ordered enough sets and a few extra in case people took more than one box. Buying per person might get expensive, a family of five should not be taking 5 favors. I counted the number of families, then the single people and ordered accordingly. Also, if you want to control how many guests take, keep the favors near your table or have someone monitor them as the guests leave.
Hey, just making suggestions, people don't have to be nasty when replying, just glad JoanE was not part of my wedding.
I agree, the trend has changed with no favors, but I chose to give something since it was a small guest list of 40 adults and all the kids at my wedding were under the age of 12 - they could have cared less about them, I had activity books and dollar store games for them to play with during the reception and they were happy to take those items home. If guests don't want the favors they just don't take it, edible or not. We're all just trying to help other people with ideas in this stressful time, not undermine the good intentions of others' opinions.
