Everyone loves candy. That’s why candy makes such great wedding favors. It’s festive and colorful and easy to find. Thinking about filling personalized candy boxes or bags for your wedding? There are so many candy choices to make them special.
Jordan almonds have been a classic wedding candy staple forever. They are used in many Italian-American wedding receptions and are often expected by the older generation. They also look pretty and are tasty, so how can you go wrong? You’ll find companies now sell Jordan almonds in bulk. They come in either white or multi colors to pastel to bold. What, you’ve never eaten a Jordan almond? It’s simply an almond enrobed in a candy shell. There’s another layer of candy below the outer coating for a crunchy sweet treat. You can fill your tins to a bulk bag and you’re all set.
Brides are now very lucky that they have the adorable option of filling candy favor tins with personally decorated M&M candies. You can order to MMS.com. Go online and you get to choose the colors you want to decorate, the message you want them to have, and if you want to include a photo or not. The space is small, so you can’t get too crazy with the personalization, but you can get a photo of the two of you shrunken down to fit.
The company does it all. But it comes at a price. They’re not cheap at all. And leave yourself plenty of time for delivery. They need extra time to print and ship, so don’t wait until the last minute or you’ll incur rush charges that make your wedding favors ultra-expensive.
What’s sweeter than a kiss? Include this favorite sweet in your tins in one of the many flavors. There are sure to be wrappers that match your theme colors. They come in gold, silver, red, purple, and brown wrappers, to name a few. With each wrapper color is a different flavored Kiss. Red is cherry-flavored chocolate, purple is dark chocolate and gold has almonds and chocolate. The brown is milk chocolate. And of course, the traditional silver is the Kiss we all know and love in regular chocolate. You really can’t go wrong with Kisses. See if you can order a bulk bag if you have lots of favors, as they also aren’t cheap in the grocery or discount store. You’ll get a better deal online in a bulk bag.
There’s no end to what you can fill your candy tins with. Try conversation Sweet Hearts or pieces of gourmet chocolate like Godiva or Lindt. You can even have truffles made with your new initials on them. Give one per tin or however many fit. Often one good piece of chocolate is all you need. There are other options like Scottie dog-shaped licorice, licorice pipes, candy corns for a fall wedding, small pumpkin candies, Jolly Ranchers and more. Visit a candy store. If it fits in the tin, you can give it as a favor. Get creative and try to find a candy that’s either a childhood favorite like Necco wafers, or one that matches your wedding color scheme. Everything will look lovely on the table.
