M&M's in Mexico??..should we or not??

Recommended Posts

Okay, on the day my FI proposed, I was at home with our 1 week old son.

 

popcorn.gifMy FI and our daughter went to the movies, when they came back home, my FI says, "Oh honey, we brought you back some M&M's from the movie", and he hands me a little white bag from the movies with some M&M's and my engagement ring in it. love.gif

 

You guys know the rest and it brings us to the reason for my post.

 

Over the weekend I was sharing with someone the way my fiance proposed and the M&M bag. She suggested that we have somehow use M&M's in the wedding as a favor or something. I hadn't thought of that before, but I thought that was a cute idea. So, what do you guys think? Do you think they would melt? I was thinking of maybe placing some on the tables in little favor containers at the reception. Our reception is in the evening around 8pm.

 

Let me know if you have any suggestions, or if you think they would melt.

 

Thanks!

thats really adorable! my best friend did personalized M&Ms for her wedding favors, but her reception was indoors and air conditioned. is your reception outside?

I think they will be okay as long as you keep them away from direct sunlight. Is there a way your reception place can put them in the refrigerator during your ceremony?

Speaking as a huge fan of the M&M... They do pretty well in the heat.

 

Here's what will happen: the chocolate inside will soften and the glossy part on the candy shell will get a little melty. But, thanks to the candy shell, they don't melt, per se. So all nicely contained, even if they are a bit softer when you bite into them. The glossy part is an edible wax or something - and it softens too, but not enough to cause a problem. However if you cool down the ones left over, they will stick to one another.

I agree with everyone you should try to do the M&M's. Can you wait to buy them at Walmart or Costco when you get there and then keep them in the fridge until teh big day?

I say do it! Like Becks said, the nice candy shell will typically save the chocolate from making a huge mess right away. I think it'll work just fine! And it's so symbolic! Cute!!

Ooohh...OK! I'll do it! You know what would be really cute is if I could find a candy ring to put in the middle!! I think they sell those big ring pops at Sam's club - they are individually wrapped and are kind of big, but they might work. Have you guys seen any small candy rings?

 

Thanks - this is going to be so cute!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
