How To Build The Wedding Candy Bar Of Your Dreams

Candy stations are the sweetest trend in weddings right now and we’re revealing everything you need to know to build the candy bar of your dreams. The key to creating a visually dynamic candy bar is highlighting your event colors throughout the display. Pink and gold wedding? Go for a variety of pink candies in gold dishes, naturally. Take your candy buffet to the next level by adding a fun décor or floral element. The best part is candy stations are completely customizable, so feel free to enjoy the sugar rush your own way!

These candies are great as “fillers” as they come in a variety of colors and can easily match the event’s color scheme:

  • Gumballs (These are super cheap and can make a big visual impact!)
  • Jelly Beans
  • Jordan Almonds (White, Metallic, Etc.)
  • Foil Covered Chocolate Balls
  • M&Ms (Custom if preferred)

*Heat should be considered for things like fruit slices, chocolates, etc.!

And metal scoops, candy bags, and stickers to seal bags in case people want to seal them to take candy home.  Voila, you’ve got the sweetest of treats in store for your guests.
