I don’t think favors are necessary and people won’t feel cheated at all! It is rather funny that your Fi has chosen this hill to make his last stand, though. Haha my Fi was in a fury when my sister and Future Sister-In-Law bought a slightly different bridesmaid dress than my Maid/Matron of Honor (same length, color, fabric, so who the hell really cares??), and I thought he was about to make his last stand about it! “Either they wear the same dress or I’m not coming!” Men can be silly like that. Usually calling them a “bridezilla” helps, at least for me Tongue Out

I think people may prefer a candy bar to something they may never use!!

I think the candy bar is a great idea! People can take candy home πŸ™‚

The candy bar option definitely works as a favor. Don’t worry about it either way, though. Favors aren’t required, so people rarely notice when they aren’t provided.

A candy bar definitely counts, especially if you provide bags for them to put it in.  I actually posted on this yesterday but I don’t know if we will be doing favors either. At every wedding I’ve been to, the favors were left behind or thrown away. 

I also think soap and bath bombs are very feminine.  If you decide to do favors I would pick something that appeals to men and women, and as a side note, definitely stay away from things that have your names and wedding date on them.

I don’t think you need favors at all and I agree with your Fiance that they’re usually a waste of money.  Candy bar is more than enough.

I have been to a couple weddings where favors were not included (and there were no take-aways like a candy bar either). I didn’t even think twice about it to be honest…so I don’t think you should feel bad. The fact that you have a candy bar is more than enough!

The candy bar will be seen as a favor and appreciated. I, personally don’t think favors are necessary but the candy will probably be appreciated. Candy buffets as favors are very common, in the US at least, so I think that will be fine.

No favors are fine; a candy bar is fine. 

We did See’s lollypops (you might not have these in the UK…?), which are among my favorite–they’re just regular-sized lollypops, nothing big or fancy. And we did those because we figured if we had them leftover (which you probably will), we’d enjoy eating them ourselves! πŸ™‚
