Picking the Candy
If you think that candies are not good for health, then nuts, cookies, or popcorn are good options. If you want to avoid chaos at the candy bar, you can individually wrap the favors in cellophane or little boxes with thank-you tags for guests. Thus it can still be a feature of the wedding candy table without the hassle of guests filling bags.
Decide on a display. Imagine the look of the table, whether you want brightly colored or all one color. You can display your candy in attractive jars and buckets, by creating beautiful candy centerpieces, lollipop topiaries. Creativity will add fun to the reception party. The display should be visually appealing.
Take Away Candy
For goody bags, there are a zillion sized favor boxes with different prints, colors, and motifs. Plain boxes can be personalized with stickers or stamps. It will be a unique reception candy buffet, if you roll some pretty squares of paper into cones for guests to fill.
After all, it's a mad, mad, mad world. 'Candy bar' is just a trend that people are enjoying right now. As the wedding day is an important day in the lives of bridegroom, bride, and their families, they wish to say 'thanks' to the guests, who have attended the wedding ceremony and become a part of their happiness.
