    Ladies, what are you doing for your wedding favors for those having an at home reception. I thought about a candy buffett and using that as my favors, but my reception is Halloween Night and there will already be a ton of candy floating around somewhere. I don't know what I want to use, some of the favors are expensive. Also did you order an amount equal to your number of guests, expecting that everyone would take one? I'll be having a very large AHR but I'm wondering if I should order enough for everyone or just barely enough so I won't have anything left over.

      The candy buffet is a great idea and inexpensive!!! I think the adults and children will both be able to enjoy.

        Candy would be perfect for your AHR on Halloween night!

          The candy buffet is a perfect idea. We are having our AHR at Christmas, so I'm making christmas bulbs filled with sand a little shells (a beach in a bulb), I'll attach a little tag to it with our wedding date or something.

            We are doing candy...keeping it pretty traditional. at least that's what I always see when I attend a reception. But I agree with everyone else, candy would be fitting since you're having it on Halloween.

              Thats a great idea especially if u are going with a halloween theme. Get one favor per couple its cheaper

                I am doing personalized shot glasses. I got 120 of them on ebay for only $72. The guy is super nice too. He will customize them and create your own design for free. I haven't gotten them yet,so I can't vouch for the quality. But they look pretty good for the price.

                  estella1007 that is actually a fantastic and unique idea! Very different from the norm, and sure to get a laugh (especially if paired with a catchy and funny note in reference to your wedding).
                  I think its a great idea for a candy buffet by the way, makes me wish our wedding was close enough to Halloween that we could do that! :)

                      We are having an AHR, our theme for the party will be a beach cocktail party. We are giving messages in a bottle along with table setting decorations as well we ordered enough mugs for everyone that is invited to the at home reception.
