We are doing a “love is sweet” wedding theme (i know some of you aren’t into themes)
We are having the flower girl(s) toss/hand out personalized hershey kisses
(ex: Mr-and-Mrs-Kisses-stickers.jpg), including a candy bar and dessert station etc. Keeping with our theme we were thinking about having candy scented candles as favors. They run about a dollar a peice, opinions please 🙂

I get where you’re coming from, but most of those types of candles tend to be sickly sweet, and I wouldn’t burn them. What about vanilla if you go the candle route?

I would like it, but there are alot of people who wouldn’t.

Personally, I would like it. I like candles though and burn them a lot, and generally like most sents. Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t like candles. I think that its generally hard to please everyone with favours anyways, though.

Favors…who cares. Just get them really drunk and then ask them later how they liked their _________? (insert way awesome favor that you would never really get them) 🙂

Cute, but I have to say I was out somewhere the other day and saw those m&m candles, and they smell pretty awful! Not like m&m’s or even chocolate at all.
What about some of the personalized kisses in a little mesh bag?

@MeiFrancis: Theres a “crisp vanilla” scented one that would allow the candle to stick with the overall feel, idk if that may work? Thanks everyone so far 🙂

@AutumnBella: I think candles would be a hard one to do with guests taking favors when they leave the reception. I originally wanted to do actual favors but there have been a lot of weddings i have been to where there are a ton of favors left over because no one wants to take them home. I think the idea is sweet (no pun intended) but if you still want to go with your love is sweet theme, maybe you could do a candy buffet for guests to pick and choose from? I don’t know what your budget is but it would be a cute idea! 🙂

No candle that is one dollar has the power of smelling good. I say no.

Since your theme is “love is sweet” i’d go with something edible.. maybe chocolate covered fortune cookies, or gourmet truffles, the options are endless!
[If you are going to spend $1 on favors, you could even get those mini boxes of whitman’s chocolates!]

Just the kisses or a chocolate bar no candle

i love the kisses idea, but might be not worth the cost.. most people wont notice and will just rip into the kiss from the top without even seeing the bottom sticker part.

+1 I agree. The money spent on the kisses wouldn’t be worth it. As far as favors, those candles probably smell terrible. What about vanilla scented candles?

how about a sachet of kisses with a cute tag?
