    I just had a question that I just am not sure what the answer is to. We are planning on having and AHR/Send off party a couple of weeks before our DW. It is a very very casual bbq/picnic. We are going to state that no gifts are necessary, etc (with appropriate wording), and because it's so laid back, we're not even sending out paper invites, we plan to just send out an evite.

    Now, because it's so casual, are we expected to have wedding favors for all of our guests? Is anyone else doing wedding favors? I wasn't sure what the correct etiquette/protocol was. I really appreciate all of your advices!

      We're having a pretty casual AHR as well, so we're doing a candy buffet as our wedding favor... Does that help?

        We are having our AHR after our wedding but we aren't doing favors. I think its a personal decision. If you want to provide them for your guests, go for it. If not, I think that's fine too.

          We're having custom hot sauce bottles for our favors, but you certainly don't need to have them.

            I don't think you need favors. I have never went to a wedding expecting a favor. Since your party is so casual, your guests shouldn't be expecting anything.

              I don't think you have to have them, there always nice but if it's not in your budget don't have them. There are some options that you can do for a resonable price if you really want to have them.

                We are, but our AHR will be a formal reception, this is what we're doing (there will be approx 200 guests, but we're going to do the wine stoppers 1 per couple):

                and for all the kids, filled with jelly beans:

                If we were having an informal AHR then I don't think i'd bother with favours! One less hassle, ya know?

                  Thanks everyone for the advice! I'm glad to read that there are some who are doing wedding favors as well as others who are not. I will have to think it over, but I don't think it will be in our budget to do them. :-)

                    I am still trying to decide if I will do favors for mt AHR also. I think you could get away with something pretty cheap if you wanted, but mostly everyone is there to see you and not there for the favors. I don't think anyone will even miss them if you don't have any

                      I don't think you need to do any with it being so casual.
