    I dont think you need them. I wouldnt miss them. Half the time I dont even see them at weddings or they are things I dont need, want, or like.

    I’d skip them. I am. Most of the weddings i’ve been to many are left on the table at teh end of the night.

    Unless you have a super awesome (or really delicious edible) favor, I would honestly rather see them skipped or money donated or have nicer drinks or decorations etc. I think most of the time they’re a waste.

    They are totally not necessary, and (unless edible) kinda wasteful

    Agree with all posts above. We are doing a donation to a burn unit my best friend died in. That money will be put to MUCH better use than cookies, candles, etc. Plus, guests usually have no use for anything that you can’t eat.

    Nah, I wouldn’t miss them.  I don’t need a frame/matchbook/shotglass with someone else’s name on them.

    So not into favors. Ditch them.

    I love the idea of the donation to ASPCA.  I have been to a few weddings where people give donations in lieu of favors- I think it is great and a nice way to thank your guests while donating to a great cause.  The weddings I’ve been to usually have a little explanation on the escort card, or somwhere on the table (maybe in a little frame).

    Favors are not necessary, but they can add a special touch to your wedding! 🙂

    Were giving a donation to the ASPCA in honor of our Rescue pup!  Plus you canc ontrol the cost much more effectively and no one needs to know what you spent 😉

    Totally not neccessary. I couldn’t tell you about a single favor I’ve ever recieved at a wedding.  Seems like a lot of money to spend on something no one cares about or remembers.

    Not necessary, but still nice touch. However, if you are going to do it 1)please make it edible. I don’t need more useless junk in my life. And 2) do it right. My cousin did Hersey Kiss roses, but only did enough for every 2 people. So that was one Hersey Kiss per person. Not worth it.
