    We're thinking of a dessert table.

    We are doing little tins of M&M's to match our color scheme (Tiffany Blue, silver & white)!

    We skipped them, but as a guest, I prefer edible favors if there are any at all.

    We aren’t doing favors. To us it’s a waste of money but it sounds like something edible is the way to go if you’re going to do them.

    We are having a Mirror Photobooth so the photo strips will be our favors. I don’t think we are going to do anything else for favors.

    I almost did the photo booth. But family stuff and money problem made it not possible to get it.

    We aren't doing favors per say, but we are doing a photo booth and the strips could be a favor. Our dessert cupcake/cookie table will also be an edible favor.

    I am having a mirror photo booth, skeleton key bottle openers, custom beer koozies, and macarons. I wasn’t going to do favors but then I loved adding all the little details.

    Probably skipping them. A lot of guests leave them behind and I've heard from multiple wedding planners to not spend a lot of time or money on favors because they mostly get tossed or left behind anyway.


    Our venue will do 4 oz maple syrup jars (travel sized, small enough to fit in a carry-on on board a plane). If we don't customize them at all and just leave their logo on the jars, we only have to pay for what gets actually taken by guests. Most of our guests are local (we live in and are getting married in NH) so maple syrup isn't a novelty and maple syrup is expensive and we could find cheaper favors elsewhere, but I like the idea of not paying for something that just gets wasted or unappreciated.

    Sip hip hurray shop on Etsy. They were a little more pricey than others I found but they were able to really customize. I have the outline of the building of my venue on one side along with the city name. On the other side is a logo and our names/dates. I know a lot of people will say guests don’t want stuff with your name all over it. And to a point I agree, but I still use the koozie from my cousins wedding lol I just thought it would add a cute touch the bar area. But there are so many options on Etsy.

    My first wedding (June 2014) was at a country club so we did engraved golf tees in our wedding colors. My 2nd wedding will be much smaller, and I don’t plan on doing favors this time around.
