    Either one would work just fine as a favor, and I agree that non-edibles usually suck. Cut out whichever one costs more.

    We aren’t doing a favor. We’re making a donation to the memorial of one of our friends killed in Afghanistan. Since my Fiance is in the military and lots of our guests are military, this will have special meaning.

    I have never been upset if I didn’t receive a physical favor at a wedding as most of it has no sentimental value to me and I’ll throw it away.

    Both would be nice 🙂 But if budget doesn’t allow for it I don’t think it’d be a problem to only have one – either sounds lovely!

    @Dolcebabe:  I think favors are completely unnecessary. You are already giving your guests a wonderful meal in appreciation of their attendance.

    I would rather you spend your money on the popcorn bar, if that’s what you want to have, than skimp on that, and  give me a chocolate favor after I’ve already had dessert.

    Wedding guests really seem to appreciate some sort of snack served later in the evening ( in your case the popcorn bar.)

    As a guest, I couldn’t care less if I leave without a favor. I think people like the idea of edible favors because guests might want a snack late in the night, but I think the popcorn bar completely takes care of that! You could set out little baggies so people can take some popcorn as a snack for the road.

    If you are having a popcorn bar, won’t there be some chocolate drizzled popcorn?

    I just notice that when I attend weddings with candy bars and popcorn bars that most of the stuff is still on the table at the end of the night.  It just seems like a huge waste to me.  We had friends that got married last March and they still had candy leftover from their candy bar by Halloween.  We’re not doing favors.  At my first wedding I gave out wine bottle corkscrews and stoppers.  I later found out that most went in the trash because a lot of people in my family don’t drink alcohol, much less wine (I didn’t even think about it when I bought them as favors because my ex and I were big wine drinkers so it meant something to us.)

    We are doing a late night snack bar so maybe popcorn would count as that?  We are doing a nacho bar and buffalo wings to hopefully soak up some of the alcohol that our friends and bridal party will be drinking.

    I have never been upset when not getting a favor. That just seems silly to me.

    We didn’t have favors. I think the popcorn bar is definetly sufficient.

    The popcorn bar is 100% enough. I usually find favors more of a hassle at weddings than anything and most of the time forget to grab one to bring home, but I’d be thrilled with the popcorn.

    We don’t care for favors and we personally didn’t do one and opted for a charity favor instead. Like you, we had fun and tasty things that happened at the wedding.
