Kids and adults alike are drawn to sweet treats, making candy bars a popular station for weddings, Sweet 16s and more.  Here are some tips to make your candy bar a highlight at your event.

Candy Selection

  • Think about how the candy can work with the rest of your décor.  Are you going for eye-popping color or something that is more in line with your wedding palette?  A monochromatic scheme can add an elegant touch, while bright colors can add fun and whimsy.
  • Consider any guest dietary restrictions, i.e., nut allergies, gluten free, vegan, sugar free.
  • Make sure to order enough candy for everyone.  Following a .25 pound per guest rule should suffice. ideas for your candy bar
