ok i know from your other board posting that your wedding is not for a while~!  don’t order now~!  it’s ok if you wait.  my friend did m&ms for her wedding favors and asked me to order them like 2 months early..problem was that it was still warm and i was so paranoid about the m&ms melting.  you can’t refridgerate them because the color gets weird also.

now i have to tell my crazy not ordering enough m&ms story..she wanted the custom printed m&ms with her and her FI’s names and wedding date, so i ordered it for them.  i obviously can’t do math because i was so ridiculously off.  we made little bags of them for 275 people and i was no where near close enough when i ordered 36 7oz bags.  i got so lucky that her colors were pink because the night before when me and the other bm were putting the bags together, we realized how short we were going to be and ended up running to the closest drug store at MIDNIGHT before the wedding and ended up buying TEN more big bags of pink breast cancer m&ms~!!!

anyway..so i suggest the 5lb bags..and to wait on ordering them until your wedding’s closer…

as for an inexpensive alternative, i have to say, those little mesh bags are super cheap..i didn’t find anything as cheap as those.  but here are the ones i researched and found for my friend’s wedding:

are you getting the M&M’s personalized? that is more expensive, but could be really cute!

you can use glassine envelopes too! they are inexpensive and pretty b/c you can see the colors shine through. 🙂 you could also staple a label to it at the top and it would look totally cute.
