I am debating two favors and could use your input:
1) 4 ounce scented soy candle in a mason jar (made by me and my bridesmaids)- we would offer two scents, probably vanilla lavender and some sort of apple cider/pumpkin (it will be a fall wedding).
2) Chocolate & pecan coated butter crunch candy- this is made by a woman local to my wedding and tastes amazing.

@happycamper8: I’m not allergic to nuts, but I really really don’t like them, so I’d pass on the nut treat.

Anything with nuts in it is always an iffy choice. You never know who is allergic or just plain doesn’t like them. I’d be so much happier personally to recieve a candle!

Candles!!!! They last longer and get more use.

Is there also an option of the candy without nuts so you could have both with and without? Whenever the option is something edible vs anything else, pick the edible.

Chocolate> everything else

The candy sounds delicious but I would be nervous about nut allergies- is there any other kind of candy you can do?
I also personally love candles but I know plenty of people who would also just leave them there so I don’t think I would do those.

Eff nut allergies! You can always find someone who can’t or doesn’t want to eat something! It’s your wedding, have what you want.
That being said, what I want is chocolate, but I’m pregnant, so, you know…

Edible favors are always better in my book! Like others said, though, you just want to be cautious of severe nut allergies.

Thanks for the feedback bees and heads up about nuts! I’ll make sure to get it without them.

I think edible favors are always the best way to go, but I’m a sucker for an awesome smelling candle. I think either option would be really great!

Yeah, I think edible might be the biggest crowd pleaser…but I also really want to make candles! We did a trial run and it was fun.
Maybe I could do both (40:60) and have them on a table with a chalkboard sign saying “take either one candle or one candy box. Enjoy!”
