Favors are seriously over-rated, most get forgotten and left behind at the reception. My advice would be to save your money.

I disagree with the PP, as long as the favors are actually good. I always take and normally enjoy the favor if it’s something yummy. A random tchotchke or personalized whatever would be left behind. Sorry, OP. I would have no desire to have a photo of your hometown, especially if it meant nothing to me.

I agree with ilovebacon. I do love edible or drinkable wedding favors. If it’s something that means nothing to me though it would get left behind.

Edible or nothing when it comes to favors.

I agree with everyone else.  It would just be disappointing to you to see almost all of your favors left after the night.  But maybe if you still want to incorporate pictures of your hometown in, you could put the book of them near the guestbook or somewhere else where people could flip through and look at it, and maybe include some of your engagement photos as well?  But TBH, your hometown means more to you than it does to others, and I doubt anyone would appreciate them as much as you’d like.

I also agree with most of the crowds.  I love getting favors at weddings! I unfortunately would not go with the hometown idea either + if people were to pick the photo they liked it and had to flip through it, that may take up a lot of time.

I think traditional favors are the best-candies, little trinkets, boxes with little trinkets.

I got a lot of my wedding favors as well as my friend’s favors from here:

It’s pretty affordable.

Unless all your guests are also from your hometown, I can’t imagine why they would be interested in such a pic.

If I wasn’t from your hometown, I’d leave that favor behind as well.
