Final question!! Are you giving all of your guests a favor to take home? Or does the food, booze, and festivities cover it for you?

Thanks for weighing and telling us which wedding traditions made the cut!! If you missed any questions, you can start from the beginning here: Yea or Nay?

On a roll? Make sure you didn't miss Totally chic or too much?, Would you rather? Round three, and Most likely to... parts one and two !

    We didn't really want to do favors but figured we should. But we came across skeleton key bottle openers on amazon for a good price so picked them up. well priced, cute and simple.

    Yea. We tried to give out something that our guests would actually be more likely to use. I love the idea of consumables, honey, jam, etc. We made our own infused olive oils.

    Yes! It is a nice gesture to thank your guests for coming. Even just a small item of appreciation is always nice!!

    Personally, I don’t think favours are worth it unless they are homemade or personalized to the couple. My FH and I will be making a donation to a charity of our choice, likely to a Cancer foundation because my mom passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in 2016. We will be writing a few words to explain this to our guests somehow in the wedding stationary.

    Yay, we were prepared to skip this but it was important to my mom so she will be making them.

    We gave favours to our guests. Not edible and something small to use at throughout the year.

    Yes for sure. I am doing DIY favours, we're giving individual hot chocolate cones. They will be tied with ribbons in our wedding colours, with personalized thank you stickers that have our initials and wedding date. Goes with our winter wedding theme.

    Yay! We're giving out bottle openers to each couple/household (a few have children) and candy favours/bar - my mom recently pitched the idea of having a candy bar and I'm still weighing the options!

    I guess it's sort of a yay but not in the traditional sense ... we will be making a donation in lieu of favours.

    I’m so on the fence with favours ...I don’t personally want to do them but my mom and FH insist it’s a must. I want to do something edible if we are going to do them. Still looking around for ideas though!

    I don't really want to, but I think it's expected among our circle. We decided on mini-succulents (I know, I know... hipster nonsense... but so pretty).

    Yes. We will be doing either M&M's, or some candy/chocolate in boxes. Something edible that people won't throw out

    Nope!
    Stats (and our coordinator) say favours are a waste of time/money.

    Not in the traditional sense. We won't be giving trinkets or anything, but giving our guests a drink ticket for cocktail hour.

    Sort of. putting some Hershey hugs and kisses in a lil bag. then doing a donation to a charity in our guests honour.

    over the years I have thrown out or never used most of the favours. to me they are not worth the expense.

    We're likely doing chocolate bars with a custom wrapping for our favours. We do want to give our guests something as a thank you and we figured that our guests would actually "use" a food item and would eat it.

    For sure giving favours! It's a must (IMO)! I'm sure if you had an extravagant of a wedding you could skip out but even then, if you are going all out - then why stop when you get to the favours?
