I did not purchase favors for every person attending. I am giving one per couple/per family.  Really, who needs 4 of everything if they live together?  Or at least that’s my justification!  I like the bird’s nests!  They’re really neat!

Not to be all weird and germophobe, but are the almonds going to be rolling around loose in the nests?  Won’t they fall out in transit unless you wrap them?

Maybe you could get larger nests (1 or 2 per table) and put little wrapped bags of almonds inside those. (That might also be a little less time consuming than portioning out almonds for each nest, then wrapping the nests…) Then people could take them if they want them, and those who love ’em can take more. In that case, I’d do one bag per guest. I’m sure you’ll have those people who adore them (or are just nuts about taking stuff…everyone’s got those guests!) and won’t have many leftovers at all.  

Peanut or almond M&Ms also look like eggs, and I’m sure you can order them online in any color you want.

What about it does your mom think is tacky? The Jordans themselves? Or the nests? Just curious…

Aha!  I getcha now…FWIW, I don’t think that putting cute little bags of Jordans (or any other candy, for that matter) w/ a nice little ribbon/tag in the nest looks cheap.  Favors shouldn’t break the bank. If you can’t think of something that really expresses you guys as a couple, I’d go w/ something food related, something that matches your theme or, yes, the charity thing.

Maybe you could get different kinds of bulk candies and display them on a table in large nests, and put out little Chinese take-out boxes or cute bags/boxes, and people can assemble their own favors?  That would probably be quite reasonably priced, you have hardly any labor yourself, and matches your theme.  Or trail mix?  That goes w/ the nature-y theme too and is purchaseable in bulk. You could get the "gourmet" kind w/ chocolate and shmancy nuts and fruits so it doesn’t look "cheap."

How about Dove chocolates?  Cheap (relatively) and mmm those are so good.  Talibaba, I think you have a good idea and it is a very original favor idea.  My mom personally thinks there should be no favors, and being the lazy bride to be that I am, I’m sort of wanting to agree with her.

i like the dove chocolates idea.  and just wrap them up in cute little tulle circles, tie with ribbon and be done with it.  if you want to forego the whole favors thing, that’s fine too.
