Hello beautiful Brides,
I am in a debate with my mother. She thinks that we should do Jelly Bellies in wedding colors for the favor because they are a “classy and univerally liked candy”. I agree, but they are so expensive and cheap jelly beans are gross. I have suggested Salt Water Taffy that coordinates with our colors because it is delicious and cost effective. I think salt water taffy is the perfect summer treat. We are having a casual summer wedding at a b&b btw.
Here are her reasons for saying “no” to the taffy:
1. No one likes it.
2. It’s says “cheap”
3. In the summer the humidity in VA will make it “sticky and gross”
So, I need your help. Do i fork over more cash for jelly bellies because they are pretty, yummy and well liked. Or do I pick something that is cost effective. We are already going over board with food and drinks at our wedding and I just cant imagine spending so much on candy.
(P.s. The other favors are fans for the ceremony because it has the possibiliy of being hot in June)

Salt water taffy is one of my favorite treats, especially my aunts hand made stuff, so I may be biased. I say go for it, you might make sure they are as small of pieces as possible. I prefer the ones I can pop in my mouth without looking like I have a huge wad in my mouth.

I think salt water taffy would be really cute. Jelly beans don’t really say ‘wedding’ to me, but I think the taffy is adorable enough to work:).

Jelly beans make me think of Easter baskets. Taffy makes me think of breezy summers on the beach. I think you should definitely go with the taffy!

I dont know anyone off the top of my head who just really loves jelly beans….I realize some people do but i don’t consider it to be some amazing candy that everyone likes! Go with what you really want! The Taffy sounds like a great idea!

I also love salt water taffy and I think it is a great idea =) what are your colors?

Salt water taffy would be better because:
-it tastes great
– pieces are individually wrapped so stickiness is not an issue

I think either could be cute but I honestly can’t say that between jelly beans and taffy, one is considered “cheaper.”

I love salt water taffy. I doubt it will be sticky and gross since it’s sold along the East Coast which is hot and humid!

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: Agreed. Whenever I go to the shore I can count on taffy being a fairly safe treat. The individual wrapped pieces make them a safe choice.
I like both choices but I think taffy seems more “wedding favor” to me.

I would say it totally depends on what your wedding colors are too… If your colors are black and gold, I seriously doubt that your guests are going to universally like black liquorice and buttered popcorn jelly bellies OR taffy! I don’t see anything wrong with taffy though, I like both treats and if the taffy is more you AND cost effective, go for it!
