Do you have a display for your open frame with the photographer?  If so, you could put the candles there and let your photographer just ask each guest to take a candle when they finish the photo.

If you put them at each person’s seat, maybe add a note to it giving them instruction to take it home with them.  Either way would work.

I think you should put them at their seats…. when my cousin put the favors on a separate table, only about half were taken.

I am putting my favors on a separate table with a framed sign that says ” please take one as a sweet reminder of our day” our favors are chocolate truffles

I would put them on people’s seats.

I prefer favors at the place settings.  Usually after a reception, people are either ready to go home or ready to hit the bars for the after party, and regardless, they tend to miss the favor table.

Agree with putting them at seats!  If you have them displayed on a different table it’s way more likely people will just ignore them.  Some people never really leave their seats at a wedding!

Hey @TaurianDoll:  At the table is my preference because people get something when they have a seat.

I also say at the seats. Some peopel may be shy and not want to be seen taking a favor, if that makes sense? But at the seat/table people will know they’re for them to take.

@TaurianDoll:  you can put it on their table settings. Or, if you’re having a receiving line, you can have one or two of your bridesmaids handing them out to each guest before they walk into the reception area. In my culture, it’s common to get your favour (bombinere) after you give your gift (either an actual gift or money in a card). Either option would work well!

I am putting my jars of honey at their place setting. In my experience when the gift isnt right in front of them, people forget to take them.
