@Jessicachantal:  I don’t really think you need favors, but serving cupcakes sounds like a great idea for that many guests.

As long as you’re serving some kind of dessert, I wouldn’t have a problem with it!

I think its fine since you’re having dessert served with the meal. If you weren’t already serving dessert though then I wouldn’t really like this idea.

I’ve never been to a wedding where I didn’t see basically everyone eating cake! But again, since you’re serving dessert I think its fine.

Just make sure the cupcakes don’t get stale!

I am serving cupcakes. Not as favours though, just for the love of cake.

As a guest I probably wouldn’t think of them as favors, however, as a guest I don’t really care if I get a favor. We haven’t gotten them at half of the weddings we have been to in the past year and I haven’t missed them.

I have never once even thought about taking a favor home..I am a horrible guest..I didnt even know what a favor was until I started planning my wedding. We will not be giving out a favor. Instead we will have a photobooth

I feel like favors are so stupid. Don’t even worry about them. Seriously, the last like 5 weddings I went to, the favors all went into the garbage except for one, which were home made caramel apples (oh yea!). I would just save the money on the boxes, ribbon, etc. and have the staff pass a cupcake to everyone after dinner in lieu of cake and call it a day! No favors, no biggie.
