Kslim13:  we aren’t doing favors, and haven’t given it a second thought. I feel like they often get forgotten, and people don’t even realize if they don’t get one. I say save the money and put it elsewhere!

No, I didn’t and most weddings I’ve been to have skipped it.

I also skipped favors and didn’t think twice about it. I wouldn’t worry too much honestly.

I’m not doing favors and I really don’t think people will even think about missing them.  Actually, most weddings I’ve been to didn’t do favors and I didn’t think anything of it.  Providing them with a meal is favor enough in my book lol

I personally like favors and keep them but for the majority of people, they feel it’s unnecessary.

Kslim13:  Most favors are a complete waste of time and money. The bride and groom have already wined and dined their guests all evening. A few M&M’s, a cookie or a cake pop are not going to change my opinion of you or your wedding.

Save your $$ or put it towards something else for your guests- like the bar tab.

Favors are not necessary at all. We are doing them but only because my mom wanted them and is paying for them. If she hadn’t wanted them we would have skipped them. All the weddings I’ve been to have skipped them.

We are doing a donation in lieu of favours. Money well spent! I have either forgotten to take favours in the past, or put them away somewhere and never looked at them again! 

Spend your money where it means the most to you! 😊

I’ve been to a few weddings without favours and didn’t mind at all. I really only noticed there weren’t any because I was wedding planning myself and was picking up on all the details. My DH and probably a lot of other guests didn’t even notice!

We did the personalised M&Ms and were also shocked at the price (we did only have 80 guests at the meal though which in the US is probably a small wedding). We had spent less than anticipated in other areas though so decided to splash out.

I might do DIY favors because I like to keep my hands busy, but I definitely don’t think they’re necessary.

we didn’t. i was always on the lookout for something inexpensive and not cheesy or a coozie(we srsly have 5000 coozies) and never found anything. so i never got anything. i have gotten nothing but rave reviews from my wedding and no one mentioned no favors lol!  i don’t find them necessary at all unless it is edible. the only favor i have ever kept was from my bff’s wedding. she had playing cards with their names printed on the box. i still haven’t used them though!

Nope! We did not do favors. I had dreamed of having them, and something that represented us both. Me, lip balm with our names and the wedding date on it. DH – hand sanitizer with our names and wedding date on them. I found a few sites that offered them, and looked at what it would cost. Um, no. I would rather have the $600+ go someplae else.

We did have a photobooth, though… so guests took their photos home as something. To me, that was more worth it!

I say skip favors. Everyone needs less stuff, anyway. And even the edible favors — who really NEEDS fancy chocolates or whatever (my waistline sure doesn’t)?
