    I’m doing small truffle boxes at each place setting, but really it’s only to help dress of my tables. I wouldn’t waste my time and money on them otherwise! 

    Nobody will notice or care if you don’t have favors, and if they do, it’s probably because they’re recent brides/brides-to-be themselves!

    The entire time that we were planning our wedding, I kept telling my husband that if we didn’t do something edible, I didn’t want to do any favors at all because let’s not lie about it, nobody wants a wine glass/shot glass/candle/ornament/etc/etc with our initials on it…lol!!  🙂  We ended up going with chocolate covered pretzels, but honestly, I would never think anything of it if there were no favors.  It’s not like I deserve a present for coming to your wedding…  🙂

    Honestly, thinking of the last 5 weddings that I’ve been to, I can only remember one of the favors. And the only reason I remember those is because they gave glass coasters that broke in my suitcase on the way home.

    We are not doing any.  I don’t see the point?  We are going to send out pictures in our thank you cards afterwards.

    I would think – finally someone who didn’t waste money on something that I will absolutely never use or accidentally leave at venue anyhow.  Unless it is something edible or something really neat (which probably means it costed a small fortune) it’s most likely getting thrown out anyhow.  I really like the donations in the guests honor, I’ve heard some people get all pissy about that but seriously, yeah maybe it’s only a few bucks a person but if that’s a 200 person wedding, why not donate $400-$800 to a good cause than spend it on crap no one wants!

    I would definitely not care whatsoever!!  I think it would be nice to see them slowly fade away and no longer be a tradition, it’s a waste of money most of the time!

    We are thinking of not doing any either.

    It just seems like an added expense.

    Most people throw them away anyway. The only good favor in my opinion is food and it isn’t needed anyway.

     

    I recently went to a wedding and didn’t recieve a favor. I didn’t notice until like a month later that I hadn’t received anything.

    I’d rather have nothing than have the couple spend a lot of money on things that everyone is gonna throw away.  So pretty much anything edible is great, anything else is at risk, lol.  I kind of like mints or mint chocolates for after dinner.  That being said, one favor I did keep, and it’s been over 10 years now, was a really nice Christmas ornament.  It was totally my style and fit perfectly with how I like to decorate my tree.

    I’d be fine without them. I’m not planning to do them for my wedding. Put the money to something else!

    I wouldn’t notice they were missing.  We aren’t doing favors at our wedding either.

    I probably wouldn’t even notice unless somebody asked me later what I was given.

    What about donating the money you would have spent to a charity in the names of all of your guests? You can just print a card that says where you will be donating. Something like “In lieu of favors we are making a donation to x”x charity” in the names of all of our guests.”

    That way you haven’t wasted money on trinkets most guests will throw away, and helping others less fortunate than yourselves.
