I didn't realize people still handed out favors at weddings until this year. Granted, I hadn't been to (or in) many weddings before, but I was still surprised to see gifts waiting for us at the door, even after we had been fed, boozed up, photographed and danced with. Being a guest is the best role at a wedding -- you have none of the fiscal or planning responsibilities, and yet reap all of the rewards. As mentioned, I was pretty new to weddings until this year, and really thought that I'd only walk away from them with a full belly and an exasperated liver.
