Originally I saw this great idea for favors that were two rocks in a bag and each said love, and I thought that’s cute “Love Rocks”; well after much research these little love rocks were very pricey. I started brainstorming what else I could do with this cute “love rocks” idea and I thought of rock candy! I found my purple rock candy on “Oh! Nuts” and ordered 120 for about $80 (with shipping). I then went on to Vistaprint.com and designed a label with our “Love Rocks”, you can see the label in the below pictures, the last line says “Thanks for making our day sweeter!” These labels were about $5.00 for 120. I then purchased some ribbon for $1.00 at JoAnns. Since the packaging was kind of boring I pulled back one end of the wrapper and tied it up with the bow. Here are some pictures!

I love this idea. It is a bad thing to keep looking at inspiration like this, because I start to change my mind and think about going a whole different route. This is so unique and fun, and has me very tempted to switch the look of my wedding.

Bella, I went on to the Oh Nuts website (really awesome site btw), and I saw that you could by the rock candy wrapped or unwrapped. Which option did you get?

Thank you so much for your post. I have been struggling with favors for months and the wedding is in 2 weeks. I am going to do something similar but use the phrase “love is sweet” I think. Thanks!
