How many wedding favors do you really buy?

If we're expecting 300 guests should I really have that many little things scattered on the table?

  • I would do one favor per couple.One favor for each individual that comes alone without a guest. If your inviting families (like husband,wife kids) one favor per family. That type of thing.

  • Some say only the women guests get a favor, some say every guest should get one. We gave every guest a favor at our daughter's wedding. It was a mason jar candle with their monogram on the lid. We put one at each place setting.

  • i did'nt do big favors. I had going out the door favors and i did have kid pales with lots of goodies. My wedding was the day before Easter so i used some tulle and wrapped jelly beans in it with a thankyou if anyone wanted that...i also had thankyou mints and taffy in our wedding colors...i did taffy because gatlinburg and pigeon forge is known for taffy so i wanted something local.

  • we're having 100 guests (including kids), and we bought 100 favors. Plus has little coloring pads with crayons. You get 12 for $11 i think. We're gettign those for kids.

  • To be honest, I HATE wedding favors, I have never been to a wedding where I took home something I could really use and I am sure that the other guests felt the same way. Not that I expected anything at all, but I hate to see a newlywed couple pay for all of these cheap little trinkets.

  • I bought a favor for each guest. I think honestly it's either all or nothing, otherwise you're saying that some guests are worth it and others aren't. 

    We did mini bottles of sparkling cider with a label affixed with our monogram and a silly ingredients list and even sillier nutrition information (I did those myself), then tied them with sparkly ribbon around the neck.
