I love wedding favors, but I know many people really don't, and either leave them at the wedding or throw them away once they get home. We did simple wrapped chocolates thinking that at least people will eat those: half were left at the wedding. I can't really fault people for wanting to save money in that area.
I know this isn't the majority opinion on a cake board
, but the cake really wasn't a huge deal for our wedding. We served four courses, including dessert, before the cake, so it was really only a tradition thing for us. I didn't allocate a huge portion of my budget to cake. Of course, I didn't want more than my budget allowed!
