My fiance and I both got laid off not long after we set the original date and I had ordered my wedding dress, so we are trying to cut costs as much as possible to make things work with what we have.
About a week ago, I was talking to my mom and my Fiance about it, and my Fiance asked me what this candy bar was that I was on about. I told him that was favors for the guests, and my mom immediately asked me why I was giving people presents to come to my wedding. She is from England and, as she put it, she never even heard of that tradition until she came here.
She and my Fiance kind of convinced me that the favors weren’t going to be worth the money. I know a lot of people forget them anyway, or just throw them out.
I’m just afraid of people being upset if I don’t do them.
Is anyone else not doing favors?

I didn’t do favors and don’t regret it at all. No one said anything either.

I wont be 🙂
We will make a donation to two of our favorite charities in our guests name.

I’m not! but we’re having a photobooth, so people will get to take their photos home, which is sort of like a favor.

No favors here. We really didn’t want to create more waste than we’re already creating by having a wedding, so we decided not to do favors.

I was initially not going to do them. In the end, we came up with an easy cheap way for our placecards to double as our favors, and I was happy I changed my mind. I’m sure it would of been fine without them too but since my wedding was a bit lacking in all the DIY touches I thought I’d have, it was nice to include that one. I assembled little fuchsia boxes that were super cheap, filled them with Lindt truffles I got on a great sale at Walgreens (and the wrapper was navy, our other color, haha), and put a ribbon around it which was secured with a favor tag that had each couples’ name and table number.

Ok, thanks for the replies. I feel a little less guilty about not doing it.
