I didn’t have favors and it was fine. If you’re already busy DIYing everything I wouldn’t bother with them.

 From what I’ve read here, even the people who do take them will throw them away when they get home.

That being said, if the tree of life charm was well made, I would probably wear it as a necklace or add it to my key chain.

I would LOVE to recieve something like that!

If you haven’t created one already, it would be really cool to read a thread about pagan wedding ceremonies! Tell us more!

I think your idea sounds really cool 🙂 but to be honest I don’t think anyone ever likes favours as much as the bride does. If you are DIYing everything I would skip the favours, we aren’t doing any either.

Don’t do it! You will have enough on your plate. I would not take one or I would take one and throw it away at home. Sorry I just don’t like nick nacks.

I don’t think you should do favors at all if it’s going to upset you if people leave them behind. That’s just part of the deal with wedding favors.

nykkee :  yes I take them, yes I keep them and I have no idea what the bee is always on about as every wedding ive been to that had proper favors had non left as greedy people go around helping themselves to extras

as long as its not food/bubbles though, they are far more likely to get left – people have just eaten they dont want to put a cookie or chocolates in their bag/pocket that are going to crumble/melt and bubbles spill and are messy

I wouldn’t worry about favours. I have been to a LOT of weddings and I only remember two with favours. One had tiny Yankee candles and I was so excited – some men gave me theirs to take home so I got a little collection 😄 I don’t think people really notice if they’re not there. As long as people are well fed and boozed up they are happy!

NOT doing favors. 

We are doing blankets for folks to keep warm though, flips flops for dancing shoes, cute boxes to take cake and pie back to their room… stuff that I’ll know guests will actually use at wedding.

nykkee :  I don’t like little knick knacks that will clutter my home, and I most likely to appreciate and take edible favors than things like koozies, which I’ll never use. I think you’d be fine skipping out on the favors and maybe using the money elsewhere 🙂

nykkee :  I always keep the favors from weddings I have been to but I am on the minority here. Most people do leave it behind and popular opinion here at the bees is to skip them. If you absolutely wanna have a favor, I learned from majority of the bees is to do something edible.
