I wasn’t having favors, but one of my guests offered to make wedding bell cookies. I think it’s highly unnecessary to have favors, but my guest insisted so I accepted. She is also making fruit pizza for cocktail hour since dinner isn’t until 8pm & we didn’t have anything else planned.

no favors, and no one missed or mentioned this! We had an open bar– that was the only favor people cared about!

No favors, I think they are SUCH a waste!  I might do welcome bags for my limited amount of guests (DW) but haven’t comitted to that 100% yet

We didn’t have favors and it wasn’t a big deal.

@tampalove35:  Same here! We’re providing full-night open bar, which we believe is better than any forgettable favor out there! Favors are so unnecessary.

We didn’t have favors, and if that upset anyone we didn’t hear about it. There was WAY too much planning left to do (I was still making the programs the morning-of) that I just didn’t have time to really care. I’ve heard that most people just leave them on the tables anyway.

We aren’t planning to have favours. We spent extra on an open bar, a cake + a dessert buffet, and a really good DJ. I figured that would make up for a useless favour that only a few people will take home anyway!

No favors at my wedding. I don’t expect favors at wedding either – they’re nice, but not necessary in my opinion! They could take home a napkin with our names and date on it if they really wanted a favor.

No favors here either. They strike me as a giant waste of money and I just don’t care to spend the time thinking about it.

I’m not planning on traditioal, one-for-everybody favors, but I’ll have a cookie/sweet table with to-go bags, so I guess those are optional favors?

I’m not planning on having them either, but I’m considering a candy bar with cute to-go bags.
