Eh, if you don’t have favours, no one will notice. Leave everyone a chocolate on their plate.

There have been hundreds of posts here on WeddingBee from brides not doing favors.

Most are a waste of time and money.

We’re skipping the favors too to save $$—they’re just not a priority.  Now that I think about it, of the 5 (yes, 5) weddings we went to this past summer, only one offered favors.  I highly doubt anyone will notice if you forgo them.

I asked someone the same question yesterday! If I’m having welcome baskets should I also have favors. I think they serve the same purpose so I would NOT have favors. I think they will be happy and think its a nice gesture for having a welcome basket that they will not even notice the favor.

 

I was in a wedding a year ago and they gave chocolate, which came in REALLY handy because we hadn’t eaten since 9am. Dinner wasnt until 9pm. We were starving. I wolfed down those chocolates to subside the hunger.

This was my “wedding favor” BUT it doubled as the escort card!  I had assigned seating so I printed guests names and inserted them in the frame.  It’s true…many people don’t take the favors and leave them behind which is what happened at my wedding… but it’s OK, I ended up selling them to another bride and so I got some of my $$ back =)

we’re not doing favours, but we’re donating $10 for each guest to an inner city charity that is close to our hearts, and also asking that people donate in lieu of gifts for us.

@aisha1908:That sounds like a great idea and I would consider it a “favor”

I didn’t do favors either because I tend to not take them when I go to weddings. 

Now I will be giving photos from our wedding to our guests as Christimas presents.  I did have a small intimate wedding which include family and close friends only.

Our favors were edible. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have done favors. And no one would have cared. 🙂

We’ll probably skip favours. : ) 90% of our guests are from out of town, so everyone’s getting OOT bags anyways (which will be mostly edibles, with some touristy stuff). We might do charity favours if we have room in our budget, but we’re really not concerned.

i did these for my best friends wedding, the doubled up as place cards too, every last one got ate. for 80 people it cost me £30 tops to do them, so not very expensive at all 

i’m going do the same for my wedding i think

We are doing a donation to a local charity instead of traditional favors.
