    @aheavel:  I love the idea.  I get excited when I see chocolate as a favor.  Who cares what sort of candy that it is.  You will be providing a lot more than that to have people help celebrate your special day!

    I think that favor sounds great, and the tag will be so cute! I agree that edible favors tend to be the ones that are actually used/taken.

    That many Hershey Kisses can add up, and I don’t think there is any such thing as “too cheap” when it comes to wedding favors.  I always thought a couple dollars a guest was fine, and that seems to be right there.  I’m curious how much the people who voted “too cheap” are paying for their favors! 

    I think edible favors are perfect, and I love your tag idea! I say do it! 😀

    It sounds like a very cute idea.  My mom did hershey’s kisses for favors for her wedding last year though and almost everyone left them though.  =/

    I think it really depends on the kind of wedding you’re having. If you’re having a more casual affaire kisses would be adorable. I wouldn’t have been able to just give out kisses (even though I think they’re adorable) cause my family had a much bigger idea of what a wedding favour should be.

    @Baker2Be:  I voted too cheap. I spent about 8$/guest for mugs (with our cameos on them) with cocoa & coffee in them. It was worth the spluge: I’ve been getting messages from my friends every day telling me how much they’re enjoying their mugs.

    I know you said you want something easy, but I think it’d be nice if you took the idea a little further, to make it more special. What about those cookies that have a kiss on the top:

    or this recipe even has them hidden inside: http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Secret-Kiss-Cookies

    To me it’s not that the kisses are cheap, it’s that they are ubiquitous; your guests can and probably do buy them themselves at the drugstore or supermarket so it’s nice to jazz them up a little bit IMO.

    For what it’s worth, I had a relatively “high end” wedding, and we were just fine doing organza bags of candy. We figured our guests would rather us spend the extra money on the dinner, the open bar and the coffee bar than on their favors. And boy, were they! Don’t put money into favors that can be used to make other parts of your reception better!

    @Gemstone:  My point exactly with my post above.  Big whoop if I don’t get an “over the top” favor.  Haha.

    That’s what I did.  My tag said “Chocolate Kisses from the new Mr. and Mrs.”  My favors cost 58 cents and a grand total favor budget of $115.  *Shrugs* So what if my guests thought my favors were cheap.  I’d rather get an edible favor than a fancy bottle opener or cookie cutter that sits unused in my kitchen junk drawer.

    @Gemstone:  Totally agree! My family and my fiance’s family have very fancy, formal, sit down dinners for weddings (I’ve been to 6 family weedings in the past few years, there are a lot of us!) and no one has ever done a big fancy favor. A little chocolate at the end of the night is great. I’m sure people will love them.

    If you wanted to spice it up a bit… you could add one or two of these to the bag:
