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.
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.
