They won’t forget, but they hopefully won’t throw it away either! Usually, people throw favors away when they DO have the names and dates on them. What is your favor?

Unless your favors are edible, I think it’s better that they don’t have your names or date on them!!

@Nathymd:  What is your favour?

But as a general rule for me if it has a name, date, picture, quote on it I will leave it on the table at the wedding.

@Nathymd:  Pleaseeee! Do this! Hehehe I kinda hate when people use their names, date and a big OUR WEDDING on favors. I mean, I DON’T want a bookmarker with the name of someone else. 

I dunno, I won’t be doing it.

@Nathymd:  Are the keys edible? I am not sure what laze is sorry. If they aren;t edible I would guess that over 50% of your guests will leave them on the table or take them home and throw them in the bin. I also think that most guests wont get the meaning either.

I just hate seeing couples wasting money on something that is not needed/wanted by guests. I am sure most guests would rather the money go into something else.

@j_jaye:  +1.  Please know I mean this with absolute politeness and I am not being snarky, but exactly what are your guests supposed to do with this key?  The favor is a small thank you to your guests.  I don’t understand what they would do with this.  I am picturing an old fashioned key – if I am correct, I would leave that behind as I would have no use for it.

As far as the name/date thing?  I agree with everyone else – that is one sure way to make sure many leave them behind.  NO ONE except maybe mom and your great Auntie Gertrude want something with your name and date on it.

@Nathymd:  this is the reason why I didn’t put date, names or a picture of us on our wedding favor.

We gave out coffee mugs with a double heart and underneath that it read “All You Need is Love”

I would never get a second use out of something monogrammed with someone else’s wedding date on it!

I loathe favors with someone else’s name and/or date.  This is a big part of your life, but to everyone else it isn’t and I don’t want to decorate my home with your name all over it.  So yes, it is okay to skip it!
