looking to sweeten your reception
Gone are the times of a one size fits all wedding reception - a reception that is the same as all of
the other weddings the bride and groom's families and friends have went to. Nowadays, it's about
bringing the personality of the lovely couple into the wedding preparation process. It comes down
to creating an experience the guests will enjoy and remember for a long time.
For many people, this means having an awesome wedding candy buffet, rather than more
traditional desserts or reception favors, so the bride, groom and their guests can indulge a sweet
tooth in celebration of the marriage.
What sorts of sweets are typically used in a wedding candy buffet? Where can couples find bulk
candy that will be ideal for a wedding candy buffet - candies that will complement the colors of the
wedding party and offer something everyone in attendance will love?
The answer to 1st question - what can be included in a reception candy buffet - is both the
simplest and most difficult to give. With 1000's of sorts of candies and other confectioneries to
choose from, a wedding candy buffet selection is only limited by the inventiveness of the wedding
No matter what candies and confectioneries impact the fancy of those planning the festivities, can
Candy and confectionery products are categorized under 3 primary categories. Those
classifications are "chocolate confectionery", "sugar confectionery", and the "flour confectionery",
which refers to products that are made mainly from ground cereals.
When organizing an outdoors wedding reception in the garden, one may consider adding butterfly
shaped lollipops to the candy buffet to fully capture the playfulness of the bride and groom.
One could also choose lollipops shaped like flowers - daisies, tulips or sunflowers - or perhaps
milk chocolate roses.
However, if the wedding plans include a beachfront reception, you can think about bulk candy
products shaped like sea creatures or marine settings. One could get gold foil wrapped chocolate
toffee seashells, fruit filled hard candy shells, or chocolate fish, to suit the wedding candy buffet to
the reception's flavor. One could even throw in those tiny "beach side" umbrellas for the fruit
Others will select bulk candy for their wedding candy buffet according to the colors that they are
using in their wedding - a mixture of pastels, purples or pinks, yellow or silver. Others will likely go
with a variety of chocolates from the candy store, including white chocolate, dark chocolate and
milk chocolate. Yet others will choose conversation hearts and other heart-shaped candies to
keep a sense of sweet, playful romance.
For folks who have the creative flair, some people opt to create wedding cakes on a theme for
instance the honey moon cruise.
The wedding cake will be created to reflect the image of the cruise vessel, and candies will be
included to emphasize the detail of the cake concept. For example, Lifesaver candies can be
added to the cruise vessel as life preservers, and Gummy fish can be added to the plate to show
fish getting in and out of the ocean.
However, the options do not end here. Caramels can be combined with chocolates, fudges, nut
candies, candy corn and taffies, to give everyone their favorite kinds of candies to eat. The hard
candy favorites of, peppermint, cinnamon, butterscotch and Jolly Ranchers can be thrown in for
those who like the long-lasting candies.
Next to the actual wedding itself, the wedding reception is the best part of the wedding
For most people, the reception is the good luck party, whereas for others it is the "thank you for
coming to our wedding" party. This is basically the time when friends and relatives can send the
groom and bride into their new lives as a couple. For some, it's the wedding reception that they
will remember the best, because it is the time when everyone can enjoy the company of the
important people in their lives.
Offering a wedding candy buffet will not just offer the reception's guests a delicious way to spend
an afternoon, it could also create an experience that they'll recall, even beyond their own wedding
Of course, the bride and groom can only eat so much candy by themselves, so it is beneficial to
the coordinator to supply takeaway boxes in which wedding guests can carry home their most
favorite treats. In the cruise-themed reception, the organizer could supply paper-machete boats or
a captain's glass with which to carry the goodies home. Depending on the takeaway box, it might
be something that could occupy a shelf in the receiver's house for many years to come, bringing
back the memory of this special event every time the receiver sees this exclusive container.
Since there aren't any rules based on how a wedding reception should take place, there are no
limits on how to design a wedding candy buffet. Play. Have fun.
In the end, your wedding reception will be a celebration - and celebrations give everyone a
chance to feel like a child again. So, let your wedding reception attendees feel just like kids in a
candy shop, with a wedding candy buffet.
