I wanted to do customized M&Ms and I thought it was the cutest idea since both of our names start with an M. Then I realized these can get very PRICEY! We are looking to have somewhere around 400 guests (i know.. huge wedding) and I would like to order these in bulk – but even ordering them in bulk will cost us 400 bucks – and then on top of that we have to stuff the M&Ms ourselves into little organza bags.
Then I started thinking this is a crappy idea, each person would get about 30 M&Ms – I feel like it’s so little? Is it too little of a favor for so much money?

@mags2233: If both your initials start with M do you really have to customize? If you want a particular color scheme maybe you could stock up around an affiliated holiday when they have special colors rather tahn spending all that money!

I would personally say no. Candy is candy and paying a lot more just to have them personailzed for such a large number probably wouldn’t be worth it. You could do a candy bar with your wedding colors or m&m’s with your wedding colors.

What would they be personalized with? Instead of doing the full-on personalized ones, could you just do the ones that are in your wedding colors, since they’ll already have the M and M representing both of you? I’m not sure how much less expensive that would be?

I would just buy regular M&Ms in your wedding colors. If your names both start with M, then the standard “M&M” should cover you 😉

Eh, I don’t even think you need to get them customized to your colors. Even if you were to wrap ’em in your colors or use a colored organza bag and ribbon for the fun-size ones, that woudl be cool!

I think I’m starting to agree with you guys – I was going to buy them in bulk.
The customized 10lb bag is $250!!! ridiculous. Then I was going to mix and match with non customized M&Ms – the 5lbs bags of those are all they offer and those are 60 bucks – thats just for colors.
As far as what we would put on the M&MS – things such as our first names, our wedding date, you can even upload a picture of yourself! etc but I think its a waste of money…

Just get m&ms in your wedding colors- since those are your initials, you don’t need to personalize- you can get them for about $12 a pound in your colors.

We totally wanted to do this too because both of our initials begin with M, but the customized ones are so overpriced! I think we did our whole candy buffet for what a small amount of customized M&Ms for each guest would have cost.

@rebwana: I agree, I think I might just give up on the idea of customized and go with just the colors… much cheaper.
