Wedding favours are an item that keeps coming up for debate when it comes to cutting down on wedding costs!

Are you giving guest favours the red light? Or keeping them going?

    Green light if it is edible like a dessert bar for guest to enjoy. Otherwise, I would say red light because often people forget them behind and I don't think it's worth the money.

    Green light. They were our centrepieces so it also meant we didn’t have a lot of centrepieces left over

    We are really undecided on this, kind of leaning towards no. Depends on budget at the end.

    Green light. We did chocolates, looking back I would not have spent the money or time on putting them together

    We are donating to a charity instead! We also got small boxes and are filling them with chocolates to give to the guests.

    Green light!

    We found something affordable and meaningful with mini chocolate squares from Newfoundland Chocolate Company. It's also something we won't mind extras of if people don't take them *YUM*

    Red Light. I think these are old fashioned and tend to be forgotten most of the time, which ends up costing a lot. So we decided to do a candy bar instead and if there is left overs after, they can still be enjoyed.

    Red light! We will be giving a certain amount of money for each guest to our local children’s hospital foundation. It is something that is close to our hearts.

    Green light! Ours will be "his favourite" and "her favourite" snacks. I think people are more likely to take wedding favours if they're edible

    Green Light - well I was talked into it. I initially didn't want them due to the expense, but my mother and sister both said it was a must. We are doing cupcakes in a take home box. I will put each guest's name on the box and double it up as the place holder on the dinner table... two birds, one stone.

    So they are kind of unique flavors the olive oil is included with orange extract and the balsamic is infused with dark chocolate. It’s very subtle but so cool. They make an amazing vinaigrette for a salad!

    We’re debating. I’m at a red light but my fw is at a green light. I like the idea but I can’t fly them home if nobody takes one

    Red light. They're an unnecessary expense.

    I guess its a bit of a red light we aren’t really going out of way to get favours but each table will have a bonsai tree and we will be sending guest home with them if they want them

    Red light. I see them as such a wasteful added expense.
