I don’t think it would be tacky. In some areas of the country, it is traditional for the centerpeices to be taken home by the guests.

I don’t see anything wrong with it. Those things usually get left behind anyway. I went to a wedding where there was a bowl of chocolate candies on the tables and a table card saying”In lieu of wedding favors, a donation has been made to the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Foundation to honor loved ones and their courageous battles with breast cancer.”

@SandAndSea:That sounds like a good idea to me!!! Good luck on whatever you decide.

One of my best friends got married last summer and did not give favors–she agonized over the decision, but ultimately it was just one of those last-minute things that were out of her ability to complete.

I think the only people (seriously) who noticed at all were her and her hubs, and our closest circle of friends (because she told us all when she was trying to decide).

Definitely not as big a deal as it seems!

I agree that favors are not necessary. From my perspective as a wedding guest, I would never feel like I was missing out if I didn’t get a favor. Actually, I just attended a wedding this weekend where most of the favors were forgotten about and left on the tables.  If it’s not in the budget this is not something you should worry about at all.

Don’t do them if you don’t want.
