    We were never really concerned with favors and then in January, FH found a website with mercury class ornaments on sale for $1.50!  We were searching for vases for the centerpieces and voila! the favors found us!  They were such a great deal and since we only have 65 people it was not a large expense!

    I think the story behind your gummi bears is very cute and guests would appreciate it more if you included the story you just described (ergo more likely to take it home). But if you can’t afford it, don’t have the time and it has become a hassle, I say skip it. Guests won’t know the difference.

    Favors are not required and no one will miss them if they aren’t there. But the gummy bears have a personal meaning to you so I would choose those.

    Honestly, if you are going to do favors, I would definately do the fudge. I am not sure how many people actually like gummy bears. I think they are cute, but I really don’t like the taste or feel of them in my mouth. The majority of people, in my opinion, would really love the fudge.

    Stick with the gummy bears since it’s personal, but if you can’t get them, skip favors entirely.

    Awww the gummy bear story is cute! I think using them as favors would be unique as well as memorable.  But if you can’t get them, going without favors wouldn’t be a big deal.

    I love the gummi bear thing, but how are you going to get them???

    Fudge would be mega expensive (even if you did tiny pieces) but … as a Michigan girl I can agree that it is DELICious! and I can’t see anyone leaving it on the table.

    I voted to nix the favors but only because I feel as though it is stressing you out, and favors are the last thing that should be stressing you out right now!

    I’m not doing a particular favor, but we are having a candy bar and getting personalized bags for it to set at each place setting.  If people want the candy they can have it, if not, I’ll eat it afterwards, hahaha.

    If you really want to have a favor, either one is adorable and personal!  But don’t worry about it.  People are going to look back at your wedding and remember the fun they had and how beautiful you looked, not what the favor was!
