One of my bridesmaids is planning the shower and she’s very frugal. I don’t think she has planned to give out favors. Are they necessary?
I’ve only been to a few low key showers and never got a favor. I have only been to one where I received a favor.
If it’s super rude not to give favors, what do I do? Make them myself? Offer to pay for them? The shower is this Sunday!

You don’t need favors ever! Shower, wedding, bachelorette etc etc etc.
It is not rude if you don’t have them.
If you do want them, by all means go ahead.

Any more opinions? I feel like they are unecessary…

I think they’re unnecessary. Most people forget to even take them home.

No – it’s not ‘rude’ to not have a favor.
It would be rude to not have seats or anything to eat or drink… or for the bride to snub the guests.
If the guests don’t have a party favor to take home, it’s just that – they don’t have a party favor to take home. It’s not a big deal at all – the shower is the event… not the favor.
Personally, I thing favors at showers can be a very sweet touch. I know I’ve appreciated favors at showers that I’ve attended. I think a little more time and attention typically goes into shower favors. Conversely, I don’t like wedding favors because usually they are a little more generic since there has to be so many of them.

Not rude at all, the are completely unnecessary and honestly a waste of money usually! If you are providing something to eat and drink, that’s enough!
