I want to come up with a final choice for wedding favors by this summer so I can purchase the materials this summer when our craft store has a huge sale.
My original idea is to do tiny jars filled with candy and then taking a piece of fabric and covering the top and tying it around the top of the jar with twine. My wedding colors are a bright blue and a bright yellow and I wanted the candy to match. If I do this idea it will be either gum balls or jelly beans. I really want to do the gum balls because the colors are bright and vivd and they fill up space in the jar better than jelly beans. But I’m open to both options.
I’m just afraid the gum balls will be sticky or parents who bring their kids wouldn’t want their kids to have the gum but yet have them sitting there, taunting them.
So what are your opinions? Gum balls? Jelly beans? Different favor idea?

What about those candies that are ball shaped, and kind of the same size and shape as gumballs but are kind of tart-flavored? I can’t remember what they’re called, but my mom used to buy them from the bulk candy aisle. They had lemon and cherry, and I think I remember a blue one as well. You could do lemon candy with blue fabric on the top of the jar too, to go with your color scheme.

@kellmerr – that was what I was thinking would be a common reaction from parents! Haha! Maybe I will steer clear 😉
@Miss Root – I never would have thought of those- thank you very much! Those will even stand up well in the July heat…definite perk

I think jelly beans 🙂
Easier to eat for all the guests
Have you looks at those candys you can get in the 2 different colours?
I think they are very expensive though
