Confession: I kind of hate wedding favors. Especially the ones that have other people’s initials or names on them (sorry!).
Not only that, but I feel like they’re such a waste of money, as people don’t appreciate them and many never even make it home with the guests.
We’re planning on having a food truck park at the hotel and deliver fresh cheesesteaks and cheese fries at the tail end of the reception for guests to grab on their way out–we’re Philly people. Can this count as the favor?

I suppose it could. I wouldn’t like this favor.
Perhaps you could arrange to have some type of special card or tag or something they get when they receive their food?

Awesome. Just plain freaking awesome. When/Where is your wedding? I’d like to visit the food truck please!

No, to me that is not a favor (although it is totally awesome and I would love it!).
I don’t think you really need a favor. Most of the time it is a waste of money.

I’m with you on this one. I don’t particularly care for wedding favors either. The food truck idea is awesome. It’s technically not a favor but honestly I like it much better.

I have yet to receive a non-edible favor that I have kept for any reason. This is why I like edible favors.

favors are totally unnecessary, so if you really don’t like the idea of them, then don’t do it. but if you are going to do favors, food is always a good way to go.
i like the cheesesteaks/fries idea, but i don’t think you really need to pass it off as a favor. it can just be a little midnight snack for everyone.

As long as it’s free to guests, then it could be considered an edible favor. However, I’m not sure guests will see it that way since it’s not packaged up for them and ready to go when they leave.

I think it is super cool and you don’t need to call it a favor. Favors are on their way out of style anyway, I prefer getting no favor.

It’s really just a late night snack and not a favor. Just let people know it will be available as they leave. I’d actually try and have them brought inside before the end of the night.
I’d call a wrapped Philly soft pretzel a favor,tho!

@ItWasntMe: They will be brough into the ballroom; guests won’t have to go outside at all. Also, there will be fresh pretzels in the hotel welcome bags, so we got that one covered 🙂
