Favors

looking for some feedback!

I know from lurking that edible favors are best and that favors are completely optional. However, I want to be sure my (mostly out of town) guests are hosted properly in every way possible.  Some of my family members don't think anything that I'm doing "counts" as a favor, so I want to see what you ladies think.

We will have a candy buffet, which will also include cake pops, cookies, fudge, dried fruits and nuts (at this point I don't know of any nut allergies, if someone indicates a nut allergy on their RSVP, I won't include nuts).  We are also using bud vases as escort cards and I hope some of the guests will take these home or at least back to their hotel rooms to enjoy during their stay.  My dad is stuck on the idea of a photo booth, so we will have that too. 

If you were a guest, would you feel like these items were favors?  I'm completely open to suggestions and would be happy to add something else.  Thanks in advance!

    I never expect a favor at a wedding. No guest should...they are not even close to being a requirement.

    Stop asking your family for opinions :-)

    Everything you have is fine.

    Candy/junk food, a vase, and a photo.  I don't think anyone would complain (not that they should anyways).

  • Yes all three are favors.  Will you have take home boxes/bags for the candy?  You don't need to, but if you do I don't see how anyone can say it is not a favor.

    What you have is plenty!
  • You have more than enough! Favors themselves are even necessary!

    Yes, we will definitely have little bags.
  • They are favors please do not even think about it gain
