Love as Sweet as Candy – Candy themed Wedding – Styling and Moodboard

It may sound cheesy but love really is the sweetest thing so today I would love to share some ideas and styling for a Candy Theme Wedding.

If you are  blessed with a sweet tooth then this scrumptious theme will be just right for you.

The great thing about the theme is that sweeties come in many shapes and colours so it makes it easy to take a theme through into different parts of the wedding.

As an introduction to your theme, bring through your chosen colour palette with your invitations in candy colours – brights or pastels.

For your table decoration, use crisp white linens, and then  take any particular colours used in your candy to accent in napkins, table runners, and if used, chair cover sashes or swagging.

Little details like candy necklaces tied around napkins would add weight to the theme, and look quirky and cool.

Place settings such as personalised chocolate bars would also be effective too.

For centrepieces, consider mini topiary tree’s with the bottom’s banded with ribbon, as to look like lollipops.

A lovely  look can also be achieved by using a  large martini glass holder filled with colour co-ordinated sweeties, and then topped with flowers.

This would also work with varied sizes of vases/containers.

You could name your tables after all your favourite sweeties.

For your cake, you could have a simple cake adorned with sweets,or crafted to your favourite or you could choose little pastries, petit fours, or the ever popular Wedding cupcake tower.

For wedding attire, the colours of your candy can be brought through in the colours of the Bridesmaid gowns or consider a stunning soft pink for the Bride.
Colour can also be brought through in the waistcoats, ties, cummerbands of the male wedding part.
For favour’s, personalised chocolate bars are great  or consider little mint tins, personalised rock, lollipops and jelly beans that are also fabulously fun.
And for any candy themed Wedding, a Candy Buffet is petty much a must and this in theory can double up as a favour.
Inexpensive striped bags and personalised stickers are easily sourced.

Many different shapes and sizes of canister, container, vase, bowl can be used to store the candy and this gives depth to the display.

Have a rummage at your local charity shop, Ikea and the large supermarkets for your Glassware.

Purchase your candy with the weekly shop, as deals usually abound with bulk buy.Your candy stand can be co-ordinated to any colour and accentuated with floral or balloon cluster or display.

A sign saying a phrase such as “Love is Sweet” is popular.

You may want to bring a candy bar together yourself, or consider bringing in a professional to run this for you.

I would love to share some choices that I think would really work well with the theme.
