    We bought them for my fiance's daughter and husband for their wedding. We used their wedding colors, fuschia and pale green. They were exactly like Tara's, with Jen & Joe instead, and their wedding date. We gave the M&Ms to them at their reception. They were in a beautiful glass dish that they kept on their table. They were a big hit.

        Tara--those looked really good. I really can't wait to try this out. I'm glad I got to see a pic from someone who has already tried it.

          i was considering having them on my tables at our AHR
          here's other print candy websites i found if anyone wants to do something different than M&Ms

          Print Candies - Customizable Printed Candies
          Promotional Candy with Logo and Custom Candy as Corporate Candy Christmas Holiday Gifts by Branders.com
          Custom Candy Shop for Business Promotions with 10% Discount plus $50 Off on your First Order.

          some of them are printing on the label or container instead of the actual candy though
          thought i'd share :)

              Hello all...I was just about to start a crabby thread about the M&M's and saw this thread so here is what I found out!

              I wanted a 5 lb bulk box of personalized M&M's much like what tvt received for my wedding and I asked for a approximate price to have them shipped to Canada (Vancouver) and I was quoted $130.00 for the box of personalized M&M's and then an additional $95.95 for the UPS shipping.

              Now I think this is outrageous! I even checked the UPS site to make sure that they were not ripping me off and the shipping cost is what the UPS site has as well!

              So to say the least we are not ordering these just because of the outrageous shipping costs! I can not believe that I would pay just as much as the content just to get them here.

              I have ordered other things via the US and used UPS and it has never been that much! I am just not sure!

              Any ideas anyone has for me would be great but other than that I will not be ordering them!

              Good Luck!

                I didn't know the shipping was so expensive. I am only planning on getting the smaller bags and am not sure if that is a cheaper option in terms of shipping. Do you know if works out cheaper (total cost wise: candy plus shipping) if you go with the smaller bags vs. the larger box? Sometimes these things work out strange...have you looked?

                  I really do not know if it is cheaper...but if you look into it please post it. It is too late for me to get any so I have scrapped the idea! But hopefully it works out for you!

                    For anyone who is getting the 7oz bags...with a minimum of 3, you can use coupon code cupid6 at checkout for a free bag. Not sure when it expires, but they have these promo codes all the time.

                      I just posted on another thread that I did these as well. We did the teal and ivory personalized M&M's. I left them in the bag until we got there and the morning of the wedding had my BM's put them in these little palm tree boxes that we placed on the book table.

                      My DH proposed to me with a ring inside a box that was inside a bag of M&M's, so it was a take off on his proposal.

                      They were a little pricey, but everyone loved them.
