I bought mine at foryourparty.com they have a bunch of different types and I was able to have them personalized with our name and date of the wedding

I think the cellophane bags would be your cheapest bet, they also have them at dollarama and at the bulk barn in various design (granted the wedding ones look a little over the top to me). Also considering that you dont necessarily want these to be taken as favours could you maybe find a box of those tiny disposable cups in your wedding colours? I think those could work too

We’re using brown paper bags. I bought an edge puncher so it looks like lace on the edges, and I also carved a stamp out of an eraser and stamped it in purple on the bag. It looks really cute 🙂

  I saw these really cute chinese take-out boxes, and they seem reasonable. I was thinking of ordering those, and then getting some ribbon or something to jazz them up, along with putting our monogram on the box.

We used 2 diffferent styles. The B&G ones were much larger, so I found small black ones for people who wanted less candy. They were all very cheap, but yiu have to spend some time looking around for what you want. Mostly anything will work.

  I got these but in black.

I went the super cheap route bc I just didnt want to pay alot and took white lunch bags and cut them down with pinking shears and put them in a pretty basket.. you could always decorate them any way you wanted but i just left mine plain.. They run I dunno like $3 for a pack of 50

You could decorate them with … A stamp, ribbon, a label, anything
