    We didn't give favours.

    You could incorporate the sweets you are already having and get some turquoise paper bags for guests to use at your candy cart?

    I don't think you need favours - I'm sure your guests will be more than happy with all the goodies on offer! :D

    I'm going to DIY favours. I bought little pink bags from organsa and will put some sweets in it. It won't be that expensive and (hopefully) guests will be happy :)

    At one wedding I attended, the candy was part of the wedding favors. The couple used M&M’s that fit their colour scheme (you can get the different coloured ones at some grocery stores) and wrapped them in netting with a pretty bow. Then, they popped the bag of candy in a glass candle-holder and ta-da! Instant wedding favor. It was an inexpensive, and really tasty, idea.

    These look gorgeous.

    My best friend had some huge vases, filled with sweets on a table. So it was very much like a sweet/candy bar.

    I don't think favours are necessary. But the kids had little colouring packs which I thought was cute - kept them occupied.

    Hi Alicia!

    Those fortune cookies look perfect - guests get a sweet treat, can giggle over their fortunes and also keep slips as a keepsake.

    Brilliant

    :)

    Chocolates and sweets are a staple of wedding favours, but I've found that dried fruits - apples, pears, peaches - work just as well and in some cases, even better. The trick is to find or make them so that they are not too dry to be hard and tough, not so moist to have the potential to make a mess, but just right - dry, but still soft and chewy. They taste really nice, too!

    Hello, I'm Italian and we traditionally use sugared almonds for fovours.
    The very traditional are white, but we also use flavoured ones of different colours.
