If anything give up the favours they wont be missed. The centrpeices are a big deal and the tables will look very bare and underdressed without them.

I would vote for favors.  Unless the favors were edible, they are usually not very useful.

If it was a definitely either or I would probably nix the favours before the centrepieces.

Favors. Centerpieces make the theme, decor of the room

I would cut favors in a heartbeat over centerpieces.

The book I’m reading right now (Bridal Bargains) suggests nixing party favors as they’re described as just another thing that “collects dust” around the house.  If I do decide on having party favors, they’ll definitely be edible 🙂

favors before centerpieces but honestly both could be nixed and no one would miss them. You would have to play up your table setting skills for guests to not notice:

Favors. I never miss them but I would notice that there were no centerpieces

I really don’t see the connection in choosing centerpieces or favors since these two would differ vastly in cost.  However, if one must choose favors are the obvious choice.

What about having cheap centerpieces as favors? Like a candy dish guests can help themselves to. Or a tray of desserts our bowl of fruit?

@lindseyl06:  I agree with this. Favours first, but both could easily go if you need to tighten up the budget. If people are fed and entertained, they’ll be pretty darn happy regardless of favours and centrepieces.

EDIT: By favours first, I mean that favours would be the first thing I’d cut out of the budget.
