    Yes, you're already doing plenty and half the time favors are thrown out or left behind. Skip it! : (38 votes)

    No, you should do a favor so your guests know you appreciate them being there. : (3 votes)

    The fans and cookies at the end sound like traditional favors to me.

    @PrincessBride27:  I always thought a favor was less a “thank you” and more a memento that guests can take home to remind them of the wedding. With that said, silk fan, bubbles, flip flops, these all sound like favors to me… You are definitely doing more than enough!

    @PrincessBride27:  we are doing a photobooth! Every guest gets two color or b/w strips + instant sharing to fb, twitter & email. We are also having a video guest book and having an album made from guests photos. It’s a much better use of money and guests will have photos forever!! 🙂

    @PrincessBride27:  I think favors mostly go unused as well. Seems like you have enough already for your guests. The charity thing touches my heart though. The first time I saw that was at my cousin’s wedding and I was like WOW. I’m thinking we will do that.

    @PrincessBride27:  I would consider most of those a favor, actually.

    Can I come?  Sounds like you and your guests are going to have a great time! And those fans will come in handy and people WILL keep them and use them again.

    If you don’t want to do favors then don’t, its no biggie.  Some people don’t expect them, our family most definitely does. So of course we are doing an edible favor. As a guest I would only consider the cookies in a box favors or thank yous. The rest just nice things to have at your wedding. Which I love extras! I love departure stations. My sister had breakfast sandwiches at hers lol. We are having soft pretzels & bottled water. We are from Philly & looooove soft pretzels!
