Or, the lack thereof…? <— That question mark is there for a reason.
I think by now, everybody knows I’ve interned at a wedding venue. I’m probably going to stop saying that pretty soon because if I’m tired of typing it, then you guys MUST be tired of seeing it. Anyway, working at a wedding venue meant being there first thing in the morning and staying until the wee hours of the next morning cleaning up.
More often than not, part of that cleanup was picking up all the favors that got left behind. Sometimes that was a good thing because, let’s face it, I wasn’t going to complain about going home with 20 chocolate bars or boxes of candy.
So after seeing so many favors get left behind, it made me really think hard about getting favors for our wedding. It especially made me think about the cost involved and where we could better allocate those funds. After all that thinking, we still haven’t come to a decision.
I love the gesture of giving favors, I really do…but I also understand that a lot of people aren’t going to pick up the favors, no matter what they are or where I put them. And those who do pick them up will probably throw them away at some point. I’m just really torn on whether or not to do favors. If we do decide to go with favors, they’re definitely going to be koozies.

Seriously. Are these not the cutest things you’ve ever seen? (If you don’t think so, just keep quiet so I can continue to think I have great taste, haha.) Really, though—I love these koozies. The question is, though, should we splurge on them as favors? Or just get them for those who attend the rehearsal dinner?
Obviously I need opinions…if you were in my shoes, what would you do?
