I've recently become completely obsessed with the idea of doing homemade soy candles as a wedding favor. I'm having a small outdoor wedding with mostly older family members attending, so I thought candles would be a cute and personal (without being personalized) gift. But I have been seeing a fair few comments around that indicate people don't like candles at all...what do you think?
For reference, these would be entirely homemade soy candles in cute little 4oz glass jars, possibly with a personalized sticker label on top or bottom that tells the scent. I'm thinking I would do two batches - half in white/ivory with either vanilla, gardenia, or a generic popular scent, and then the other half in hot pink (wedding color) with a fruity/tropical scent. That way people would have at least some choice.
So my question: What is your honest opinion - would you like a homemade candle as a wedding favor or not?
(PS: I know that edible favors are #1, so
I'm not looking for alternative suggestions here. Several of my family members have health issues that make sweet favors not an option, so I need something additional.)
