Just think about storage, and how well the favors will keep, that determines how close to the wedding you have to wait to fill up the bags. I want to give out chocolate candy favors inm y pillowboxs, but considering how hot it was here last june I decided to go with jordan almonds but I still had to wait till the week of the wedding to fill up the boxes because the almonds go soft and stale if they are out of the original bags for too long

bells makes a good point. Cherries would have to be done last minute because they would mold in sealed glassine bags. You could do them if you want to leave the bags open, but it is a last minute job. They do look pretty.

 

You might want to do something that can be done ahead and put aside.You can order fortune cookies with custom fortunes. The supplier I use locally lets you use up to 9 different messages.

ugh I’m in the almost exact same position!  I’d love to hear the suggestions… I’m not really down with doing everything last minute so I’d like to hear options that can be done well ahead of time if possible.

Is it the summer feel your looking for? Why not fill the bags with sunflower seeds? They can be done ahead of time, they are cheap, they are so cute and VERY summer like! Just an idea?
