I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Millennial Central for MY M&M’S. I received product samples to facilitate my review and to thank me for my participation.
A few weeks ago I shared some of my plans for my sister-in-law’s wedding shower next month. The invitations went out yesterday and everything is coming together beautifully! Some of the specifics have changed a little, but the overall palette has remained the same. We are using a base of yellow and teal and adding navy, green and white. The flowers will be whatever is in season and available at the local farmer’s market that week.
The most exciting package so far has been the favors! Our custom candy from MY M&M’S arrived super fast and were packed on ice (just in case they had to sit on the porch for awhile). We ordered two 4-pound bags in teal and yellow with a custom monogram featuring the happy couple’s initials. I will admit I sampled them, and they are classic and nostalgic, everything you would expect from M&M’S. I couldn’t be more pleased.
I have lots of extra, so I will be putting them in vintage bowls on all the tables for guests to snack on while they play a couple of shower games. I love the color and texture they add to the “tablescape”.
I ordered some really simple cello bags for super cheap and designed a 2″ round sticker (it was all really inexpensive. For 50 bags and stickers I probably spent $15). Putting them together was fast and easy and they make great custom favor for our shower guests to take home.
MY M&M’S offers a number of favor packaging options as well, including cello bags, lace favor bags and adorable round tins. You could easily add a sticker or ribbon with a tag to dress them up and make them your own.
I’m getting so excited for the shower now. I have some more really fun details to share later including decorations and food. I even tackled the nearly-impossible task of finding non-lame shower games. A huge thank you to MY M&M’S for letting me try out their custom favor services. It’s been so much fun. If you have any questions about ordering or design tips, please post a comment and I’d be happy to lend a hand.
