We didn’t have favors at our wedding, and I don’t think anyone missed them.

I dont think they are necessary. Im sure most people would appreciate a small handwritten note more than a favor.

I don’t think anyone will miss them.  I’ve been to a couple of weddings without favors and I didn’t remember that there weren’t any until weeks later, I definitely didn’t miss them.

i say no, it is not rude not to have favors – especially when you consider so many are left on the tables after the wedding

We are paying for everything ourselves as well and we decided that we wouldn’t give out favors either. We didn’t think it would be necessary since, as a PP stated, most people won’t miss them.

I don’t think it is rude because (a) many people don’t notice/take them and (b) they are generally already being fed. I’m thinking of the food as the wedding favor.

After toting home a few “Bride’s Name and Groom’s Name beer coozies” too many, I’m relieved when there aren’t favors!

I for one, couldn’t care less about favors.

I actually went to a wedding recently where they had TONS of personalized favors and I honestly ended up throwing them away because I didn’t need lots of nick nacks with their names on them in my tiny apartment.  I think they’re totally unnecessary.  We’re only doing a mini chocolate bar with our date on it, and that was only because I found them on sale.  No one will notice.

Favors really aren’t that necessary. No one ever says “Gee, I wish they’d given us a random thingy with their name/face on it. Shucks!”

You don’t need favors and I hardly ever see them.  We are only doing them at the request of alot of our guests, they are homemade cakeballs – cheap and easy.

Unless favors are edible or functional for the guest (i.e. not personalized) people don’t remember them. If you want to offer a small wedding favor that won’t bust the budget, something edible is always nice.
