Who doesn't like candy? Although there are many themes that can be incorporated into the design of a wedding reception, couples are always looking for a way to ensure that the after-party will be a hit. Creating a sweet summer reception filled with goodies is an easy and inexpensive way to steal your way into the hearts (and stomachs!) of family members and friends. If you're looking for a way to color your party with candy, here are some tips and tricks that can help.
Hit the sweet tooth of dinner guests by decorating the table with place settings that coordinate with your wedding colors, top them off with a beautiful box of silver and gold foil jordan almonds. These delicious treats almost look too good to eat and are sure to be a huge hit with hungry attendees. As a formal dinner will take care of the savory side of each guest's appetite, couple's shouldn't be afraid to incorporate as many candy themed items into their reception as possible.
Setting up a candy bar is an easy way to get guests excited about the treats to come, even before the event's dessert is served! Stock a table (or several for a large reception) with dishes of the bride and groom's favorite candies and encourage your friends and family members to satisfy their childlike desire to gorge on goodies. Personalized mini candy jars can be used alongside candy scoop favors to give guests a chance to pack away their own personal stashes of confectionery treats for a fun party gift that is sure to go over well.
Instead of serving up a traditional wedding cake, try creating customized cupcakes in several different flavors to make sure that each guest gets the treat he or she truly wants. Cakes can be displayed on colored cupcake stands and arranged to make out the initials of the bride and the groom for a sweet surprise. Although the cakes are sure to be center stage for the dessert portion of the reception, tuxedo and wedding dress cookies make for a quirky treat at the end of the night.
