wedding wednesdays: personalized MY M&M'S

Disclaimer: I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Millennial Central for MY M&M'S. I received product samples to facilitate my review and to thank me for my participation. As always all thoughts are my own, thank you for supporting brands that support Cornflake Dreams.

I am bringing back Wedding Wednesday with a post all about personalized candy! I have the opportunity to try MY M&M'S and I am plan to gift the candy to my cousin Kacie. Growing up Kacie always looked up to me as a older sister -- which I loved because I don't have any sisters. I still can't believe that my little Kacie is all grown up and getting married this Fall!! She was sweet enough to ask me to be a bridesmaid in the wedding, so I thought I would do something special for her bridal shower this summer.
MY M&M'S offers a unique opportunity to personalize everyone's favorite candy for a special event. The collection offers a wide range of 25 colors (20 of which are available for adding custom printed messages and images). Kacie is having a Cinderella themed wedding (she got engaged in Disney World!). She is having light blue bridesmaid dresses and blue and silver decorations, so I wanted MY M&M'S to match.


Overall customizing the M&M'S and ordering was a quick and easy process with 3 easy steps:

Step 1: Choose Colors! The Platinum Silver and Light Blue colors are a perfect match for Kacie's Cinderella theme. 
Step 2: Add Images, Clip-Art & Messages. You can choose up to two images (including photos or clip art) and combine them with up to two custom messages to celebrate your special occasion. I customized MY M&M'S with a crown image (which I uploaded) and a heart design (from the site's online clipart gallery). I also added a custom message "Kacie + James" and "11/08/14" (their wedding date) to the M&M'S. 
Step 3: Select Packaging. I went with the 5lb bulk bag with a scoop but there is a large variety of packaging options.

I'll let you know how the personalized M&M'S look once I get them in the mail (and I'm sure I'll have to taste-test a few too!)

  8. I wanted to do personalized M&M's as a little treat at my wedding, but decided against it - I'll have to wait until I have a baby and do it at their first birthday party - yep already planning that far ahead lol!
