    We are not having an AHR so I can't help you in regards to that.  We have decided to do OOT bags for our guests and decided against doing favors.  We thought that because people were already getting the OOT bags we thought it was unneccesary.  I guess its just whatever you are comfortable with doing.

      Ya...we are going to be cups already in there so I guess that with the bag and all the goodies would be considered favor....maybe if I find something cute and inexpensive I'll swoop it up but if not I won't stress!

        I am also doing small OOT bags but I am going to order the maracas for the reception & place them on the plates. I figure they will count as favors along with the bags & are pretty cheap. Really none of my guests have been to a DW before so I dont think they will know or expect anything.

            Yeah, I am doing OOT bags so I think those will count as the favors as well.

              Same here.  We are doing OOT bags and fans on the chairs at the ceremony.  I think it's enough.  But if I run across something adorable I just might have to LOL.

                Our AHR is going to be very casual.. but that being said if I have something left in the budget I may do something tropical-themed for everyone who couldn't make it. Thinking of using vistaprint to blow up a few of the best pictures on banners and stuff of the actual wedding, and probably have a projection screen playing the wedding video?

                 

                Good times, good times.

                  Ya I was thinking the same thing...It's going to be very casual at my FI family Cabin (which is more like a mini compound minus the weird paligimy thing) It's where we spent our first weekend and where he proposed so it seemed like a no brainer but it is kinda rustic so I was gonna do beach theme even though its a cabin and get a projector a dj etc...may just BBQ though it's more of a party than a reception really but i wanted to bring some of  the reception into the event that's why I was thinking about a small favor or something....what do you guys think? sounds like as far as the destination is considered I'll be fine with the OOT bags and I was probably gonna do fans for the girls on the chairs or something! lol the guys would never be caught dead to use em no matter how hot it is!

                    So funny and yet so true.  Mine will be a waste but it will make for a cute picture before guests get seated LOL.
