I have ordered from this company and I like them. These might be cute with candy inside. A lot of candy comes in red wrappers. You could use red Hershey’s kisses. You can buy just the red ones online but they are kind of pricey. Right now there is an autumn mix of Hershey’s kisses out that comes in bags of orange, red, and silver. Walmart has them for 2.88 a bag. It is cheaper to buy and sort than buy the all red ones. (We wanted orange ones, so that’s what we just did.)

Bored6:  When’s your wedding? We’re doing 3 choices of favours. 1 of them is jam that we’re making. You can make strawberry jam as a favour.

It’ll be much more cost effective to make your favours, especially with a 50 person wedding, and it wouldn’t take you too long. 🙂

Chocolate covered pretzels with decorative sprinkles. Dip pretzel rods in dark (almost black!) and white chocolate. Red sprinkles (the little “ball” ones) white chocolate and white sprinkles on the dark chocolate. Should cost you less than $50.

I’ve asked my grandmother to make cookies for our wedding. She makes an array of cookies every Christmas that my entire family looks forward to. My mom, not to be outdone in any category, intends to also make some cookies. I plan to order white paper bags and print something on them for people to pack a few cookies in to take home.

I wasnt confident making cookies for 300 people (eventhough all i needed was cookie dough and groom+bride cookie stamp cutters….. in the end we went for customised rock candy which the company will pre-package for us (10 pieces of cut up rock candy in each bag). It worked out to be aud$1-2 per person and the place was close for me to pick up saving us delivery fee. All we had to do was put a custom sticker on it or else just tie it with a ribbon.

Its easy, won’t melt in the summer, affordable, won’t get me too bogged down if some guests don’t take it home (I’d just go around at the tables after the wedding and take back the un-opened favours to eat for ourselves), doesn’t go off since it has a shelf life of about 6 months after its made. I highly recommend the rock candy idea as its cheap, they can put them in sealed packaging for you and you don’t have much to worry about them going stale or look funny like chocolate.

Have a look through the guestlist of what your main crowd is, I find that at the weddings I go to, the elderly people usually don’t take wedding favours home.

The easiest favors I ever helped with were my sisters. We labeled Hershey’s minis and put them in a little organza/tulle type bag. (Our family has no peanut allergies so this was fine, but if you’re worried just take theMr Goodbars out.) But the chocolates and bags in bulk with a coupon and you’re good to go!

I thnk we used this website:
