Candy bars or lolly bars are very popular, and I recommend taking the time to organise one.
Find a supplier where you can buy all the sweet treats at wholesale prices in bulk, because you’re going to need a lot. Your guests really do help themselves and take full bags home with them, so you need to have lots of stock.
Many discount shops now offer great priced lollies with loads of variety.
You can theme the lollies to match your wedding colour scheme or go for all bright colours, or all lollies the same colour or maybe it’s just going to be all chocolate.
Go to your local discount shop and buy up big on jars and funky containers. You can buy big martini glasses and all sorts of unusual shaped glass jars to set up a fabulous table.
Buy some small boxes or small paper bags and some small plastic tongs and scoops so people don’t use their fingers. Your guests will love taking a bag of sweet treats home with them.
If there are a lot of children at your wedding you do have to keep an eye on it, or the kids will just clean it out. Don’t put the candy bar out until after the main meal if there are lots of kids and if it’s a very hot day your chocolates will all melt, so choose your sweet treats appropriate for the time of the year you are getting married.
You may also prefer to book a wedding supplier that specialises in lolly bars, so you don’t have to worry about it.
Much love and support.
