I don’t know if people still do it, but with so many out there being allergic to peanuts, I definitely wouldn’t give those out.

I’ve never even heard of giving out mints and peanuts at weddings.

Ive never heard of peanuts at weddings but maybe its regional. Our Italian relatives still give out there traditional candy which I cant remember what they are but thats along with another favor.

I’d prefer a Jordan almond over mints and peanuts. I would stick to some of your original ideas and even the Hershey’s kisses. And I second the PP’s about so many being allergic to nuts that it might be waste for both you and many of your guests.

I went to a wedding this summer that had a platter of mints next to the punch bowl. They were like buttermints or something. Very soft and chewy.

It’s a southern thing. We are doing the buttermints. I love them. They aren’t the favors though, we are having about 5 different teas and tea related products as favors. We are going to to have the mints out though.

Mints are quite common over here (UK). Sugared almonds were, but seem to have gone out of fashion.

Your post title made me laugh!  I think your mom might be a little behind the times on this one. 🙂  Kisses sound yummy!

I did little decorative cupcake cups filled with those pastel dinner mints on the tables for everyone to share. My family loves those things. You can kind of see them on the right. But as far as handing them out along w/ peanuts…no I think that trend died in the 1950’s! LOL!

Please don’t give out peanuts, a lot of people are allergic to nuts and that can cause problems if the peanuts get mixed with other candies. Mints are fun though! Or M&Ms with personalized messages.
