    I love the idea of the boxes, they sound really cute. But as far as actually something to take home, I’d like the bag. I can just shove mine and SO’s in my purse and not have to worry about it.

    Boxes are cute, but limiting in size. If you’re having any lollypops or something else oddly shaped, they might not fit in the boxes. My vote is for bags!

    I am doing bags: those brown paper type lunch bags. They will get tossed anyway, I doubt people care what they take the candy home in although the boxes are super cute. 

    It’s more up to you and what you want really as guests could go either way.

    We did the chinese takeout boxes, a lot of people mentioned they thought they were cute! They were pretty cheap, we got ours on Papermart online.

    We’re doing bags as well. Got ours from http://www.emmaspaperie.com/ if you’re looking for a vendor. She’s great – prices, shipping, etc. And we are able to print directly onto the bags we ordered – so we’ll personalize our thank you. 

    Love the Chinese takeout boxes, but they in no way went with our wedding, so we went with bags.

    I voted boxes just because that’s what I plan to do.  🙂  He’s Chinese, and we’re also getting fortune cookies with custom fortunes.  I also found a couple vases that look like take-out boxes and little gold fortune cookies to hold table names.  So- it works for us, but do whatever works for you!

    I am doing paper bags with a stamp on it, a tree with other our initials “carved” into it.

    I vote bags because you can shove it down into your purse easily and keep it moving. =) haha
