while we were waiting for my final dress fitting. Needless to say, the little man that owned the candy store LOVED us!! If you’re planning a wedding for 150-200, a candy bar would be MUCH cheaper! Brides can easily spent hundreds of dollars on favors that AREN’T EVEN CUTE! If you’re a DIY bride (do it yourself)… then a candy bar is for you! This is such an easy way to have a unique display at your wedding. (Ps. The magazines love them too:) Candy bars are fun and EASY to make! All you need to do is:
1. Find fun jars that are all different heights and sizes. If you’re doing a vintage wedding, mason jars are always a good place to start!
2. Purchase or make candy and treats that coordinate with your wedding colors! Our candy was not EXACTLY the same color teal as our bridesmaids dresses… we used variations of teal, blues, green and browns. We even threw in some ivory candies to brighten it up a bit!
3. Find a piece of furniture/ cute table to display the jars
4. Make labels for the candy if you want! And you will need to make something that the guests can put the candy in… You can personalize small paper bags, cupcake wrappers, etc. We used paper cones and I labeled them “CANDY CONES”!! Ohh I kinda want to plan a wedding again… just not for 400 people!
So enjoy some of these candy bar ideas! For all of you Sugar Shoot attendees, get excited because these next few images are a sneak peek of the Candy Bar that you’ll be shooting during the Sugar Shoot Workshop in March!! yay!!
