    Host: Are wedding favors a waste of money?

    Christiana Taylor: I am a firm believer that they are. I think that wedding favors are a waste because I have seen so many occasions where the bride and groom are packing up their stuff at the end of the evening or family members doing it for them and I have created a small box for them of their wedding favors that their guest have left behind on the table. Really I think that the most effective ones that have been used are the ones that are something small like candies, mint favors or something along those lines or I have seen some that are very that a lot of thought went into them. That is something along the lines of like a CD of the favorites songs either from the wedding or the favorite songs of the bride and groom. Those are the ones that I have seen the people who actually take with them as their key takes whereas the other ones that are put on the table they really are not ever used. I usually pack them up and send them back with the bride and groom.
