I’m debating what to do for favors.. FI likes M & Ms, I like Godiva truffles. I think it will actually be more expensive for the M & Ms because we plan to custom order in our colors. The godivas will be the gem truffles so the will be wrapped in pink, purple and white.
I’m using a clear favor box and using our colors for ribbon and thank you sticker.

M&M’s can get expensive if you customize them. DH and I looked into this for our wedding, but decided it was way too much $, given our budget.
Both are delish though. As a guest, I would prefer the truffles.

In my opinion unless your an M&M maniac there just overdone. If your the person who has picture with the giant M&M in new york on your fridge then I say go for it.

If there was a “neither” choice, I’d chose that. I think favors are not needed and I’m not a fan of edibles (one just eats them right then and there and should just be included as dessert) or trinkets (which just get donated to Goodwill). They’re an unneeded expense and I never look for it as a guest.

@naturalysam: lmao I don’t even like M & Ms!! Hoping this poll will help change FI’s opinion.
@BetterSherm: Thanks for the imput, I added a neither option. Most of my family is pretty traditional in the aspect it’ll be talked about if there aren’t any favors. I’m going to do a donation in my mothers name as well as the edibles.

Before I answer, what are your colors? I am trying to envision the boxes tied up with the ribbon, and thinking about how the colors work together.

Definitely the Godiva! Even if they cost less, everyone will think they are a nicer favor. M&Ms are just ok, in my opinion.

Black and green, not sure about the green either a lime or moss..
I haven’t ordered the boxes yet so I could get white or black.
