… 🙁 I’m really sorry no one picked them up! Maybe they didn’t see them. Regardless, they are absolutely adorable and maybe you can offer to sell them with a special bonus feature of putting a new sticker on top?


Barring that, you could always just eat the gummy candy… *hugs*

((HUGS)) did the guests know they were to be taken?  do you have a local retirement home, hospice, children’s hospital wing or anything like that? if so that would make a lovely gift to the kids and make them smile. what about a foster home or orphanage? i definitely think you can give them to someone that will smile and appreciate them.

I’m so sorry! They look fabulous, and you did a fantastic job. It’s a shame that they got overlooked.

You should save a few unopened, just for the pretty factor, and then either eat the rest, give them to friends/family, or bring them to the office?

Don’t throw them out!

You could also reuse the bags? Perhaps?

Oh how upsetting!! Your favors are gorgeous & I would have gladly scooped one up!

I brought this up in another post: I swear, guests don’t understand that these things are for them to take home. They are looking for the standard jordan almonds & tulle.

Those are sooooo cute!!! I’m sorry no one took them home =[  They’re my colors but my wedding isn’t until next May so that totally wouldn’t work.

Good luck, I don’t really have any suggestions for you.

I think you could sell the bags, just remove the ribbon & your tag! You can even sell the seeds- they’re really cute! I’m sure someone will buy them off you 🙂

Seriously… I’m so sorry. I can’t believe people didn’t take those!

Oh no, they look awesome, I wish I was at your wedding, I would have snapped up all the ones I could see yum yum.

Have you sent Thank you’s yet? Maybe you could hand deliver them and take a favor for each person along with you.

I think they are really cute!! I also think you could relabel them to sell to someone else. 

We did jam, that had their name on a label on the top….and people still left them behind.  Since I could pop the label off the top I took them to my office and passed them out to several ladies who always help me out with trade shows, etc.  They became my, I’m sorry I’ve been a bit air-headed the past few months, thanks for helping me out in a “jam” treat 😉  Do you have anyone in your lives who you could pass along a little “treat” to if you can’t sell them?

I can’t believe that happened! Everytime I’ve been to a wedding the first thing we do is look for the favors if they’re edible cuz we’re usually starving.  They must have thought that they were so cute that they were just for show!  I love your seed packets too.

Awww… babe! I am sorry. Your favors look so lovely too. I am with everyone else. Sell them or donate them. Bring them to work. I know my FH would devour them!

Your favors are SO cute.  Have no fear, your guests were just too silly for words.  I think donating the candy is a great idea if you can’t find a buyer.  I’m getting married in April.. so I’m out.
