    I am trying to decide what wedding favors to get for our guests... I am thinking of photo coasters but it will be too heavy and costly to bring 40+ of them... What are your wedding favors? Any ideas or suggestions will be HELPFUL!

      I'm looking to getting small, not one shot, bottles of jamaican rum for my guests. I know that this will be costly, but I figure these folks are spending alot to be with us on this special day. I want my favors not to wind up in the kitchen draw with all the other junk I have in there. (Mine usually wind up in there.) I know folks will drink it up.

      I read a funny article about favors, can't remember where I found it. It put this question in perspective. I'll look for it and post it. (I found the link here somewhere actually.)

        we aren't doing favors, just our OOT bags. The picture coasters would be nice but I do think they might be heavy??

          We are doing starfish bottle openers. Here's the link:

          1604 Beach Theme Starfish Design Bottle Opener<BR>$1.68, $2.28

          We have 50 guests, and I work full-time and go to law school part-time in the evenings, so OOT bags were not a feasible option for us - no time! The bottle openers are so cute, and I think they'll come in handy! We have a few children coming, and for them we'll pick up something at the gift shop when we get to Punta Cana.

            I'm trying to figure out my favors as well...I don't want to bring anything too heavy or buy anything too expensive! I am definitely someone who throws wedding favors I receive in a junk draw and leaves them there forever.

            I was thinking of getting cigars/matchbooks and something else and placing them at alternating seats. No clue what the "something else" is at the moment.

              My favors are champagne glasses. My friends and I have been going to champagne brunch together for years, I even have FI loving brunch. My resort charges a fee to rent the glasses. So....I went to the 99 cent store and bought 50 of them. I had our names, dates and a palm tree printed on them. They are at the engraving place now. He charged me $1.85 per glass for the engraving (after negotiating) and they will be ready next week. I will decorate each one with a pink ribbon (leftovers) and gift tags with our logo on it (free at vista print). I will wrap them in bubble wrap that i got in bulk from downtown and FI will travel with them as a carry on. I am only taking enough for my guests (probably 30). The remainder we will send to family and friends who don't make the trip but send gifts. I will post a pic of the finished product. Total cost for each one is about $3.50 or so?? Not too much to pay for people who travel from LA to Jamaica for a wedding!?

                I can't decide whether I want to do favors since I'm getting really carried away with my OOT bags. I would still love to do these cute Starfish Wine Stoppers as favors.

                SO cute and reasonably priced!
