Not rude it all. I’ve been to plenty of weddings where favors were not given. No biggie – don’t bother with them if you don’t want to!

We didn’t – totally unnecessary! Most people just chuck them anyway!

Nope– most guests don’t even want them anyway, if it’s not something that’s important to you– skip them!

Totally unnecessary! If you can’t swing it in your budget, don’t stress about it at all!

i think they are great if they are a thoughtful thing that is meaningful about the couple getting married or work awesomely with the theme. then they can really add something. other than that, i dont think they really need to be there!

Nope.  I don’t miss them at weddings that don’t have them and I don’t plan to do favors for my wedding next fall.

I def don’t think so! We’re having a photobooth that will play as favors…but seriously just got that for fun. I don’t expect favors at a wedding and its an expense that seems very unnecessary

Nope. I am having three favors, Photobooth, champagne splits and a candy bar only because I wanted to have them.

No, not at all. Often people don’t even take them home, or do and then toss them straight into the garbage. Sometimes they’re nice, but IMO they’re usually a complete waste of time and money.

Nobody will even notice. The only time I even thought about favors was when I went to a wedding and they definately did not get enough favors overr half the guests didn’t get them.
