one of my silly friends told me I should do a goldfish bowl with an ACTUAL goldfish…I thought this was crazy. Then I thought about doing some personal M&M’s, and something handmade like some mittens or something. Let me know either what you have done or what you plan on doing…I need some ideas.

Yeah the goldfish idea is crazy. So is this something in addition to your favors or is this going to be the favor? We are probably going to do a candy buffet for everyone to take home in little bags or boxes.

The goldfish is a bad idea. Not everyone is going to want to take one home and you’ll end up being left with TONS of goldfish! We’re having a fall themed wedding in the Adirondacks so we’ll be giving our guests mini orchard apple pies. They are about 5-6 inches in diameter and come packaged in their own pie boxes. Seriously, our favors are one of the elements of our wedding that I’m looking most forward to.

@UpstateCait: That is a fantastic idea! Mmmm…pie.
I say that whatever you choose, it should be edible. The mitts are a cute idea (I initially wanted to make scarves) but if they aren’t someone’s style or the right colour, people may not take them.
If you really want to do the mitts, I would donate all the extras to a homeless or women’s shelter. That way, you have the cuteness of a table or basket stacked with mitts but you know that, should people not take them, they are going to a place where they will be appreciated.

We did wine (and a CD) – big hit!

My sister in law did the M&M’s in little glass jars… everyone ate the M&M’s at the reception and left the glass jars…. tons left over.
