Everybody has an opinion regarding wedding favors. I am no different. My position on favors is to bag ’em….trash bag ’em that is! I think it is a complete waste of money unless you choose them wisely. Most favors end up exactly where they started… on a table somewhere. Guests leave them behind 70% of the time wasting money that could have been used elsewhere. The idea of guests having a keepsake of your day is sweet but do they really care about having a momento of YOUR special day? I think the answer may be no. If you must get favors, choose something that your guest can use beyond your wedding day like a picture frame or a small trinket box or something edible. Or choose an item than can double as an escort card holder. At least this way it serves a purpose and people are more likely to remember to take them at the end of the night after they bid farewell.
