Food. No one wants trinkets from someone else’s wedding

Food favors!  I personally, am not a fan of fancy trinkets or charity donations.  You can’t go wrong with candy, chocolate, or other fun edibles.

99% of the bees prefer food favors.  Honestly, I have stuff from people’s weddings and since I’ve moved so many times, they’re all in a box somewhere and I doubt I’ll ever take them out.  I have pictures as mementos.  Maybe do a photobooth for people to take pictures, if you don’t want to do food?

All I really want at a wedding is good food and good cake. I would skip favors. If you absolutely must, get edible favors (cookies, caramel apples, chocolates, fancy popcorn).

Another vote for food. No one wants coasters, beer holders, matchboxes, soap bubbles, or chalk (that one was particularly weird at a wedding).

Something edible.  I’ll never take/keep anything with someone else’s name on it.

+1 for edible! I also like photo booths that print strips right then, since it can be nice personal memory of the event

Food or wine. The worst favor I got was a 2 x 2 inch picture frame. Exactly what am I supposed to do with that?

Food is the best cause no one wants a dust collector to bring home from a wedding lol

@chasesgirl:  +1 “No one wants trinkets from someone else’s wedding”

@PrettyinPink45:  If you don’t have a favor at all – I sincerely doubt anyone will notice – much less say ‘she’s cheap’.

Use the money elsewhere – me getting to enjoy the celebration with you is ‘favor’ enough! 🙂

If she really wants the coasters I think they could work, but I would give everyone a set of two with no names on them- you can put your names and date on the tag. Then every couple should end up with a set of four
