I agree with Amanda! Between OOT bags, mugs, and pashminas they are getting enough! No favors for me!

No favours for me as well.. it's just too much to worry about after the OOT bags and most people leave the favours anyways.. however I like Maria's suggestion of putting Doug's own music on the CD.. that sounds fantastic!

Actually when you pay the .99 or whatever, you can use the songs like 5 times off of itunes to burn to CD or ipod or whatever, then if you try to use it again other than to listen off your computer supposedly it won't let you unless you buy it again. So technically no one would ever know if I mad 100 copies of any given song, as long as I just used the itunes to burn the original CD, then used that CD file to burn the other 99 discs, so that's where the infringment occurs. (anyone, please correct me if I'm wrong, thats just my understanding of how it works?). And I do assume the artist gets a cut from the .99.

Great idea Maria and Amanda, but we don't want to really use our wedding to promote his band, also cause one of the biggest reasons I like the CD idea is so we can compile our favorite songs together and share that part of us with our friends and family.

I also am not doing favors for the destination part, but we are doing them for the AHR.

 

I think you should tell Doig to keep trying, if you don't like the shot glass idea and see what he comes up with. I also like the CD idea and maybe if given time (and encouragement) he wil see that he does too!

Personally I went to 4 weddings last summer and I can't think of any of their favors except one. Ironically, it was a CD that I don't really listen to since I don't have the same taste in music (not to offend your idea though). I guess what I'm trying to say is that I think favors are the smallest detail that most guests forget.

 

My FI wants to give everyone mini bottles of tequila so that's what we are doing. I know many people that don't even drink at my wedding, but I figure I can do their shot for them. haha

 

At least Doug's taking interest right? I used to get mad at my FI because he didn't seem to care about anything. He would always nod approvingly without really listening. I say resist the need to control everything and give him a shot to do good.

UPDATE!

We decided to just go with this, most everyone has a keychain, kids can put it on their backpack, whatever. It's cute and "useful." We'll just get stickers for one side with our logo, and tie a ribbon and tag in our wedding colors saying 'Thank You!' or something. And you can't beat the price!!

Twelve acrylic Aloha Shirt Key Rings in assorted colors.

Aloha Shirt measures approximately 2".

That's less than 70cents per keyring!

From ABC Stores - The Store With Aloha.

 

We decided not to go with the CD idea after I priced out how much it would actually cost to make 150 or so. YOWZA! Still love the idea, but forgeddaboutit!

Abbie I love the keychain idea, we did wine bottle stoppers (mainly because I also wanted something useful and we got married in the wine country) and most of my family members use theirs all the time.
