    That sounds fricken delicious! Are you concerned with cost/DIY? I probably would be happy with anything chocolate ๐Ÿ™‚ But I LOVE chocolate!

    edible is the way to go but I would caution against te candy apples. They’re definitely cute for a fall wedding but I’ve been to a few weddings with them and nobody takes them or eats them!!! My wedding planner has said the same thing about the weddings she has done with them And doesn’t recommend them. If you love it go for it but just wanted to share those experiences with you. 

    my sister had a fall wedding and did the chocolate pretzels and they were a big hit!

    i see you are in Bmore. How about Berger cookies or Old Bay for favors? Glaubers in the county sells cute chocolate crabs! 

    You could do mini apple pies or pumpkin whoopie pies to stick with a fall theme!

    OOOMMMMGGGGG those apples sound DELICIOUS! I don’t even really like candied apples (the hard red ones always cut my mouth), but the soft caramel ones.. mm. I am craving one now!

    I did s’mores on a stick, and they were a huge hit at my wedding!

    I would vote against the candy apples for the sole reason that you and your Fiance don’t need any more last minute chores.

    It always seems do-able ahead of time, but there are so many last minute details that I wouldn’t be making a conscious decision to add this big one.

    @julies1949:  That’s what I’m sayin…Keep it simple…no stress!

     

    If favors are somewhat of an afterthought just do something simple that doesn’t take a TON of work.  Any candy you give will be well recieved.  You don’t even have to display them.  People can grab a candy on their way out LOL.

    I vote for either DIY s’mores bags or cookies. (Because Darling Husband and I love both.) We did a cookie bar (instead of a candy bar) at the wedding and had different cookies laid out on platters with cups of milk and strawberry and chocolate syrup to stir inGuerrero also had baggies for guest to take some home as their favor if they wanted to. 

    In an effort to make it even more simple, you can take 1 large cookie and place it in those paper cd sleeves and secure it with a nice sticker.  Like this: http://www.marrythis.com/wp-content/uploads/cookie1.jpg

    @yanamari:  haha I hear you on the Berger cookies!! They really aren’t that great at all!  

    Chocolate pretzels will be awesome!  My sister had ones with sprinkles on them in her wedding colors and others with different patterns on them in her colors. They were really cute!

    i love the idea of the caramel apples with chocolate.  the only downside to them is that they are a bit pricey and they don’t keep like other favours would. 

    my next choice would be the chocolate covered pretzels.  great for diy.
