Review & Giveaway: Custom M&Ms

Everybody is familiar with M&Ms candies, but what you may not know is that M&Ms can be customized!  I was recently introduced to custom M&Ms and thought it was such a great idea to incorporate into a wedding reception or shower.  The process is very easy.  Just go to the My M&Ms web site to get started.  The first step is choosing colors for your M&M mix.  You can pick up to three colors to include in the mix.  There are 20 color options, so you can easily match them to your wedding color scheme. 

Next, you personalize the M&Ms by adding messages, images, or clip art.  The names of the bride and groom fit well.  You can even upload a photo of their faces that will appear on your M&Ms!  You can also choose from images of a wedding cake, wedding bells, or champagne glasses. 

Once you've customized the images and messages that will appear on your M&Ms, you move on to select the packaging.  If your planning to use the custom M&Ms as favors, you can have them packaged and sent to you already in favor bags, tins, or mini-boxes.  The favor options cost between $4.19 and $4.99 each.  But if you want to sort them yourself or display them on a candy buffet, there is a five pound bulk bag that contains about 50 servings for $129.99.

The only thing it seems you can't customize is the type of M&M.  Currently, the custom M&Ms are only offered in the regular milk chocolate variety.

Whenever I talk to brides, they are always looking for ways to make their wedding unique.  I think displaying custom M&Ms on a candy buffet or offering bags of your personalized M&Ms as wedding favors are great ways to make your wedding stand out and impress your guests.
