Do we have to give our favors at the rehearsal dinner if when the guests arrived at their hotel they were given a welcome bag with:
2 bottles of water
2 snack packs
2 homemade mickey cookies
park maps
and a wedding cd and itinerary?????????

I'm running out of money!!

I don't really think you have to do both. Where is your rehearsal dinner? If its Ohana you could do some cheap lei's at each plate from www.orientaltrading.com Other than that you are fine, the Welcome Bags are a nice gesture. Don't feel obligated to do more. Your guests are there becasue they love you and want to see you get married, not for free stuff.:)

I am giving out my welcome bags at rehearsal/welcome dinner. So they will act as a favor too.

I wouldn't worry about it. It's not a must to give a favor at rehearsal.

That's a good idea too, Lynn. That way you don't have to chase everyone down at their resorts. :thumbsup2

There's absolutely no requirement to have favours at your rehearsal dinner.

Don't go broke over stuff people are just going to throw out or forget about!

I would not worry about the favors, we are not doing them because we are donating money to the breast cancer foundation. My grandma died of breast cancer earlier this year and was unable to see us get married, so we will put that money in honor of her. Money to charity is something I have seen a lot of, but if you are doing welcome bags they are already getting a lot of nice things from you!
