    I think a decent favor is a nice bonus. But that’s it. They are not a requirement by any means, so if you don’t want them, then don’t have them! Really, I don’t think anyone will even notice or think about it.

    @futuremrsrossol:  I am not planning on having wedding favors.  I am thinking about welcome bags for hotel guests, nothing major, just something nice for traveling in from out of town.  However, I am keeping these secret because I am not sure if even these are necessary.  Anywho, favors at the wedding, unless you are doing a candy bar for dessert, I don’t think they are necessary.  I have spent way too many hours of my life assisting others in putting them together and then hauling most of them back because no one noticed or cared.

    You’re feeding them and proving booze. I’m sure they’ll live without favors.

    I dont think I will have any. I feel like they are such a waste unless you are investing in something useful to the guest. My friend frankly told me that if she could do her wedding again she wouldnt bother with them

    @futuremrsrossol:  I have never been to a wedding that had favors. It honestly would feel like a little kids birthday party if I did. It’s an odd phenomenon that I do not understand. You fed the people a nice meal and dessert, what more do they need? I mean I guess it’s a nice thing to do if you want to, I don’t think it’s required though.

    @futuremrsrossol:  Favors are definitely not needed. Many get left behind or thrown away. Save your $.

    I don’t think people really care so much about favours..I certinaly don’t. I think if they are not a edible item then most are thrown out or become dust collectors in peoples homes!

    I didn’t vote because I think it comes in the middle…some people will be looking for them, but it doesn’t really matter.  You’re paying for their meal and night out.  I like the idea of something people can use at the wedding that is cheap…like sparklers for great exit photos, or kissing bells if you prefer that sound over people using spoons on glasses.

    Are you having a photobooth? I kind of feel like a photobooth with printed pictures is a great favor. We’re doing cookies.
