What wedding favors have you or people you know actually enjoyed?! Don't want to waste money on things people don't care for!

    You don't have to have favors, but if you do, I think they should always be edible.

    Non-edible favors usually just end up left behind.

    Favors are totally optional, but if you want to do something, do something edible; chocolates, mints, etc.

    I skipped them. We did a late night snack of sliders and waffle fries instead.

    I love the ideas of koozies, because we definitely use them! Lol but a lot of people said they wouldn't like personalized items i.e. With the bride and grooms name or wedding date and such

    Something you can eat. Otherwise, I would skip them. People usually leave them behind.

    Don't do anything personalized, nobody will take them or use them.

    I've used a wine glass as a favor. Everything else is trashed.

    We did jars of jam with mine brioche loaves. People loved them and were grabbing up the extras. We had to set aside a few my husband wanted to take to work and give the girls in the office.

    Nobody wants "things" they are a waste of your money. If you decide to do favors (even though they aren't necessary) definitely stick to something edible. FH and I are having a cookie bar. Guests can grab a box and fill it up which whatever cookies they'd like.

    We're doing individually wrapped cookies from Insomnia Cookies - We have around 200 guests, but I'm getting about 300 cookies - there's not going to be any sadness if there are cookies left over!!

    We are doing a cookie bar. A family friend is helping us bake them all and the "personalized" part is the doggy bag that people can use to take one or two to go. I definitely agree edible is the way to in regards to favors!

    We are having a brunch wedding and we were going to do small bottles of maple syrup but then we decided to do a photo booth and guests can take home photo strips so we may skip the syrup to save money
