Hi!! I’m getting married October 19 2019 and we have no idea what we want to do for our favors. Is this still something that should be done even? If we do have one id like it to relate to us. We met at the drive ins and got engaged in lake placid. We don’t have 1 major hobby really besides work relaxing and drinking. Any crafty ideas?

    Drive in reminds me of popcorn so maybe something popcorn related for favor?

    You could do something cutesy with popcorn or koozies if you guys are drinkers! But you don’t need favors at all if you don’t want them. We’ve decided to put the money we’d spend on favors somewhere else in the wedding.

    I was Just thinking popcorn as well. Maybe combine some different flavors and have take home baggies?

    We are creating a family and friend cookbook by 48Hour Books. I had everyone submit a recipe (my gosh that was hard wrangling them all), put a photo on each one in black and white behind the recipes that represent each person or couple, put our family trees in the beginning and wrote a letter. We are also giving away playing cards with our engagement photo on them and beer bottle openers. Finally, certain women are getting gifted some of the roses from the wedding (2 dozen to 12 different women). Also, we have lightsabers for our exit so everyone will get one of those.

    Super cute idea for sure! Popcorn is super affordable, and I am always for an edible favor. That way if there are leftovers, you don't feel bad (and have snacks lol)

    Also, October 19 is the best day ever for a wedding (We had ours last year on October 19 - I'm a little biased!)

    You don’t have to have favors. Your reception is the favor. As long as your guests are fed & they have free access to drinks ( alcoholic or not), then I’d say you’re good. Don’t believe the hype!

    We opted out of doing favors. Most likely they will be left behind or never used by our guest anyways so I decided to save money and skip them.
