There was no “other” choice so I did not vote. The picture below is roughly what our centerpieces will look like. I will have brown lunch bags on the tables and a sign asking people to “pick a peach” and take it home with them. So I guess we are providing favors, but they are doubling as our centerpieces.
I guess if I had a larger wedding budget I would provide people with chocolates from a local company that we love, but I generally do not think favors are necessary.

No wedding favor here either, but we will have a candy station. The last two weddings I attended I received ugly little candles that stunk up my car on the way home. And I haven’t had a decent “out-of-the-box” idea so right now I don’t know.
That said – the honey, jam, peaches, lotto tickets, and other ideas have me wondering if I should and could be a little more creative. Great ideas ladies!

I answered “yes” in the poll but what I’m going to do is print a little card for each place setting and say “instead of favors, we have made a donation to the American Cancer Society in memory of Jennifer’s Mother.”
My mom passed away when I was 21 so I think it would be a nice way to remember her during the wedding – and hopefully people will like it instead of a box of candy or trinket. I hope….

^^ I would be happy to ‘receive’ that as a favor.

I found these adorable macaroon cookies at a bakery in our neighborhood. Of course I had to sample for my guests, and they are good! 🙂 And come in my colors: yellow, pink and white.

Our colors are chocolate brown, ivory and wine. Perfect.

Nope! Well, sort of nope. We’re getting married on New Year’s Eve and we’ll have the typical hats and noise makers in our colors that will be available as midnight rolls around. As for more “traditional favors”–I find that this is a fairly recent trend and not one that anyone is going to miss. I just don’t understand why you should have to send everyone home with a trinket.
It was also the first piece of advice from a wedding planning friend–she said “have great music and don’t bother with favors!”
