DotheBrideaFavor.com released some suggestions for creating Do It Yourself (DIY) edible wedding favors.

Creating custom wedding favors of the "edible variety"-- using popular, easily obtainable confections is one way to make a reception stand out in the minds (and stomachs) of guests, especially those with a sweet tooth. Do The Bride A Favor insists that it needn't be a daunting task, nor is the process necessarily cost prohibitive, for wedding planners with imagination and "sticktoitiveness."

Candy bars now have a double meaning, when it comes to weddings. Do The Bride A Favor was reminded of this fact by examining an article that appeared on the Trinidad Guardian discussing the huge popularity of candy buffets in the nation of Trinidad and Tobago. Do The Bride A Favor concluded that candy "bars" -- or buffets-- as a phenomenon are sweeping the globe: a wedding guest these days is just as likely to take home a paper cone crammed with chocolate covered cherries, M & M's or dubble bubble gumballs as any other traditional personalized wedding favors. Do The Bride A Favor's editor agreed with the author of the Trinidad Guardian article, and was reminded, as well, that there are many prerequistes, or guidelines to consider for making a wedding candy bar a success.

Do The Bride A Favor released the following suggestions for would be Do It Yourselfers:

1) Use Decorative Glass Jar Containers: Mason jars can be acquired cheaply at craft sales, and flea markets. These can be decorated with food coloring, to match the wedding colors, and also filled with hot chocolate, or, alternatively -- jelly beans, gumballs, Rice Crispies Treats, licorice, biscotti with icing, or even elephant ears.

2) Personalize Chocolates: After acquiring custom chocolate molds from a craft store, use melting chocolates in the bride's favorite color to "paint" the molds -- then fill with vanilla or milk chocolate when the molds have set.

3) Use Customized wrappers for Candy Bars: after acquiring candy bars in bulk, use decorative foil to wrap the bars, then "top it off" with custom wrappers commisioned from a stationery store-- using ultra thin matte brochure paper. These wrappers can be cut to fit, with printing centered on a catch phrase, or even addressed to individual guests.

Do the Bride a Favor recommends personalized edible wedding favors as an alternative to small trinkets, which can be easily put away, and forgotten. Done properly, an array of edible wedding favors can make a lasting impression on guests.
