I wanted to know if anyone has ever ordered custom M&M’s off of mymms.com. FI and I were thinking about ordering them, but have no idea how many we would need. I’m going to say we will have no more than 90 guests so if you did order them how many did you order? Did you oder the 7 0z. bags, or the 5lb. bag or the little boxes or tin cans they come in. FI and I don’t really want to buy 90 tin cans or little boxes with them because I already bought what I want to but them in. Also how many guests did you invite? Thanks so much! =]

I did them for my dad’s surprise 50th birthday in August. I ordered a few of the birthday mixes, and a few custom bags. BUT, I added some regular plain m&ms that I bought from the grocery store because the custom M&Ms are so expensive!! I ordered 5 7 oz. bags of custom (3 bag of personalized messages, 2 bags of birthday mix bags) for 30 guests. Just an fyi, the 7 oz bags are a lot smaller than I thought they would be. Not sure what you are planning on spending, but doing these for 90 people would get really pricey. That being said, M&M had GREAT customer service. I had issues with them (cancelled an order, they sent it anyway) and they fixed it immediately, and gave me 20% off my next order. I’m not sure how much the 5 lb. bag is, but I think it would be more economical than the 7 oz. bags. Good luck!

I never bought them, but like Krises said, it’s a good idea to buy some normal M&M’s to mix in so you can save some money.

@Krises: That’s great advice. I was SO surprises by how much they cost, but mixing in plain/generic ones is a great idea. Did you order the bags of each color – $7.99 for 7 oz. is too much imho – or did you mix in the assorted bags you get from any candy section? Guess I wonder how that would look on my mostly red, black & white candy bar….
