Candles as a favor..too girlie?

So I was thinking for favors to give each person a small votive candle ( vanilla sceneted) and maybe just put some ribbon around the votive ( our colors are eggplant, brown , olive green) for fall...any thoughts?  or other ideas? I also have about 140 people coming to the reception..ugh.

    i don't necessarily think it's too girlie.  but i would probably skip it.  the guys will likely leave it on the table, and not everyone uses votives at home, or wants to stick a vanilla scented candle in their purse.

    i would maybe just do something edible, like a little chocolate or cookie or something.

    good luck!

    I was also thinking candied apples as favors ..guess i will look into cookies or something too..so many choices!

    Thanks for the advice :)

    I agree.  I love candles, but I already have so many that a random vanilla votive might get left behind.

    I would always vote a food favor over any other favor!

    Candied apples sound like a perfect fall favor.
    She had never understood either of the men she had loved and so she had lost them both. Now, she had a fumbling knowledge that, had she ever understood Ashley, she would never have loved him; had she ever understood Rhett, she would never have lost him. She wondered forlorn if she had ever really understood anyone in the world.
