I don’t think you ever have to give a favor.  If what you can afford and want to put your effort into is a welcome bag, then go for it!

They would be two separate things.  However, unless you have a very original idea for favors, skip them.  I doubt anyone would miss them.

i did both, only because i had a good idea for beach favors – i got sandalwood fans for the ceremony.  if i didnt want to do that specifically, i would have skipped the favors.

We did both.  Not everyone stayed at the hotel where we blocked rooms, and though we tried to get welcome bags to everyone, I know we missed some.  But everyone was at the wedding, so I know everyone got our favors there.

I am with everyone else. Unless you have a killer, must-have idea skip the favors. Do the bags though, I loved how much our guests used ours. =)

We only had about 12 guests at our Destination Wedding so we opted not to do favors. No one seemed to miss them, my mom didn’t even say anything about us not having them. We did do Out of Town bags though, with necessities people would need down in Mexico.
