- Sweet! Create a Dazzling Wedding Candy Bar
Love is sweet.
So why not create an eye-catching wedding candy bar that will make the event even sweeter? It’s a perfect choice for all ages and can add a touch of fun to your reception. And you can match colours to complement or accent your wedding theme. (Yes, you can even find colours to match your bridesmaid’s dresses.)
Here are a few expert tips and wedding ideas to help you turn candy into a memorable experience.
Use all your senses when choosing your candy.
Taste is what makes candy so irresistible. But don’t forget your other senses when choosing just the right candy. Interesting colours and shapes can really enhance the look of your candy bar. Select colours that match your wedding theme. You also want candies that are durable – ones that don’t melt or crumble easily.
Think of your candy bar as a shop display.
Ever gazed into a shop window and discovered how appealing the items look when they’re paired with an interesting theme? Your candy bar will really stand out when you use a unique table cloth or cover. And candy displayed on different levels makes the entire bar look more inviting.
Showcase candy in unique containers.
Elegant? Rustic? Somewhere in between? Whatever your wedding style, you can create a similar look with different containers. Crystal bowls. Glass pitchers. Mason-style and jam jars. Cocktail glasses. Even decorative sea shells. Be sure to use mini-scoops or tongs that can fit in the container openings.
Turn flavours into favours.
Personalise colourful bags or themed boxes for your guests to put the candy into. The candy can double as fun wedding favours.
Get more for less.
Bulk candy is great for your budget. Most wedding planners recommend that you have at least 6-8 oz. per guest. Buy extra if you’re thinking of using the candy for favour bags. You can also add less expensive favourites to your candy bar including dipped marshmallows and rice crispy treats.
Make wedding magic with personalised M&M’S.
M&M’S® chocolate candies may be the most versatile (and delicious) way to create a dazzling candy bar. Whether your wedding is traditional or uniquely themed, choose from 15 special colours — from white and ivory to bolder hues like fuchsia and electric green.
Turn memorable into unforgettable with personalised M&M’S®. Make it personal with a photo of you and your significant other, select traditional wedding images, or create text with words that show appreciation to your guests. Buy bulk candy M&M’S and you’ll save money and have plenty of favours in hand.

- Unique DIY Wedding Favor Ideas
Before you say, “I Do,” say “I Did It” with unforgettable “Do It Yourself” wedding favours. Whether you want to tap into your creative side or you’re looking for a budget-friendly way to say a special “thank you” to your guests, here are some fun creative wedding ideas to get you inspired.
Great ideas are just around the corner (literally).
You don’t have to look far for some unique wedding favour ideas. Your own larder is filled with them. You can take a simple Mason or jam jar and turn it into a stylish gift. Fill it with your favorite recipe ingredients (how about some personalised M&M’S?), add a homemade label, and voilà, you’ve created personalised wedding favours for your big day.
Let everyone catch the bouquet.
Let your guests enjoy the gift of a home sweetly-scented with homemade potpourri. A few weeks before your wedding, air dry a mixture of dried flowers, herbs, cinnamon sticks, and fruit rinds, and let the combined ingredients sit in an airtight container for a week. Place the potpourri into gift bags or sachets and your guests will have a gift that lingers long after the big day.
Spread the warmth.
Here’s a simple way to remind guests of the warmth between you and your significant other. Create a candle by adding essential oils to a paraffin, soya, or beeswax base, and transfer into a charming container like a tea cup or jar with a wick in the centre.
