Favors a must?

I never really thought too much about doing favors. I figure they are a wasted expense and when doing a wedding on a budget, this seems to be the first thing I thought should go. Most people do candy or something edible so what is the point? Is it rude if I do not do favors for the guests? Will the guests think that is weird?

    Favors are totally optional and if they aren't there most guests won't notice at all. Go ahead and skip them if you want.

    To be perfectly honest, I had never heard of wedding favors other than matchbooks until the Knot. I don't think guests will notice if they are missing, because I never did. If you don't have the budget, don't spend the money. Plus I think it would be pretty rude for someone who just had a free meal, free drinks and free cake to say "where's my favor?"

    The only kind of favors that knew of before the knot was Jordan Almonds wraped in tulle.

    We're not doing favors at all. Since our wedding is at night, we're just going to do finger foods, and then have people take the cake home as a favor. So, the most we'll spend on "favors" is the cake boxes, which run pretty cheap.
