Is there a place you could leave the favors out and not have to hand them out? Maybe a table where they sign in, you can leave them there with a small sign: “please take one/thank you for celebrating with us”. That way people will not miss them and you can avoid the trouble of handing them out, also only people taht really want one will take one.

I think it’s nice to be personally given them by the bride and groom.  If you’re doong a receiving line, then that would be a good time 🙂

I’d agree with SugarPlum.  I would set up some sort of basket with a poster/sign attached to it that said “Thanks for being our guest!  Enjoy our ________”  I would put it by the exit.  If you had more than one exit, I’d put a few by each exit and just have someone check to make sure no baskets ended up empty.

As a guest, I’d prefer this to receiving it in the receiving line as then I’d feel like I had to awkwardly hold onto it for a while.

We just sat them in baskets on the table with the guestbook. People took one whenever they wanted one, and it was fine.

At every wedding I’ve been to the favors were set out at each place setting. That way everyone gets one, and there is no chaos associated with handing them out. I don’t see why you couldn’t do that with open seating as well. ETA at my 40th birthday party favor bags were also set out at each place setting at the tables, it was an open seating, informal party, but everyone still got one and they added to the table decor.

I like giving them out during the receiving line (if you are having one). Once they receive it they put it at their seat and leave it until the end of the wedding.

I was at a wedding where they placed all the favors on a table and let people take them at their leisure. I remember at the end of the night, 80% were left and they were nice bottles of wine.
