WANTED Pink M&Ms only!

My sister and Brian are having a candy bar at their wedding reception that will include green, pink, and orange M&Ms. We found out that to specially order these colors would be $10.00 a pound! My mom found green M&Ms and we have determined that we will need to order the orange M&Ms. With Valentine's day right around the corner there is a special Valentine's day mix out so yesterday my mom and I spent time going through the red, white, and pink M&Ms and picking out all of the pink M&Ms. My mom did find a Valentine mix of M&MS that is all pink but they are different shades of pink but are still very close shades of pink. For example if you are at a wedding reception with low lighting there is no way you would be able to tell that they were different shades of pink. Of course my mom could tell and now she is not sure if she wants to use the shade that is in her words "duller" than the other shades which she finds to be much "prettier". Did I mention that she is very detail oriented? Did I also mention that if I have to sort through all those pink M&Ms to separate the "dull" M&MS from the "pretty colored" M&Ms I will need some extremely good lighting and a good sense of humor!
You can't tell from the picture(again because it is so very hard to tell) but the darker shade of pink is actually two different shades and these are the colors in question. The lighter shade is out!

OH MY GOODNESS! I am sure that each color means something to your sister and her future hubby...I would love to know the significance! ;)
Ok...I wish I could help you but seeing as I am in GA..I guess it would be sort of hard.
Is anyone you know going to Las Vegas anytime soon?? There is a M&M store there that carries every color imaginable. Milledge brought each of my boys back a bag with the colors of their favorite college football team in it. There might be stores other places as well...I just know about that one! Good Luck and let me know if I can help from here!

How funny! That is detail oriented I would say!

This is Melinda's Mom. She certainly didn't present me in a favorable light-she made me sound like I was too particular about the "have to be the right shade of pink" M & M's. If she thinks I am too fanatical about everything having to be perfectly matched for her sister's wedding wait until I go shopping for Mia. Her hair band will have to match her dress which of course will have to coordinate with her shoes and those frilly little socks! Mindy is the best Mom. I pray that Mia will bring her as much love and joy as she has brought to me. Mia may not be of our blood but she is of our heart where love is born.

Debbie,

You didn't come across in an unfavorbale light at all to me. Just a mother who wants her daughters wedding to be perfect! I think it is wonderful!
I am sure Melinda is the mother that she is because she has such an amazing role model!
Good luck with the wedding plans! I know it will be beautiful and I can't wait to see pictures!

Melinda said...

Thanks for the suggestion Angie! Their wedding is in July so pink, orange, and green are their wedding colors.

Melinda,

I think at Easter time, you can find orange one's in a carrot bag????? I believe I've seen that before.
