Wedding favors are a fun way to incorporate your theme and to thank your guests for coming, but are they really a favorite for your guests?

What do you think about wedding favors? Are they still a 'need to have' or just a 'nice to have'?

    Nice to have. We are skipping them. I think the welcome bags are way more important.

    Nice to have. We were originally not going to do them, but FH changed his mind and really wanted them, so we went with edible ones!

    FH says need, I say nice to have. We’re doing them anyway because it’s FH’s project.

    Nice to have. We have 3 different favors for people, but I don’t think they’re absolutely necessary.

    Nice to have. They just end up in a box somewhere or left behind so I don’t think they’re missed.

    Nice to have, but in most cases they just end up in the trash.

    Nice to have. I originally wasn't going to do favors but FH's aunt gifted us with Italian chocolates for all the favors and I found these pomegranate boxes on Etsy that were so cute! Pomegranates are a symbol of Armenia and my FH is Armenian so it would mean a lot to his family and our wedding theme has kinda come together around it.

    Neither, unnecessary in my opinion. Guests don't take them. A donation to a charity in replacement of a "favor" could be a meaningful replacement.

    Just nice to have, unless it's edible favors like cookies!

    Need to have. My fiance and I love to cook together so we came up with the idea of filling little jars with olive oil and infusing them with different spices. It's a nice personal touch on the favors to say thanks for coming and to maybe get the couples to have their own little date night at home and cook a meal together.

    Nice to have. Still on the fence about having them. Cant really come up with an innexpensive idea. Plus it's not really in the budget
